Great day for junkin'........
We both found some real treasures. I'm working on a tall white cabinet that had lots of peely paint. I decided to sand it a little and paint it so someone could actually use it for dishes or books or even linens and won't have to worry about peely paint. I'll take pictures once it's done. Also, found a wonderful small wicker table with a door on the front. She had 3 wonderful old gardening books and a stack of white ironstone. Now I have to get it ready to go to Leola's. It might take a few days since it's cold again.
Stella & Phoebe will be with me this week-end. Allison, John and a small army of friends will be moving them into their new house. They are all so excited. The girls will have their first antiqueing outing with Aunt Judy and Gramma. We're heading to Lebanon for Spring Open House at one of our favorite haunts -- Tattered Treasures. Our grandchildren have all been introduced to antiqueing and all seem to like it. Linda's oldest, Jessica, often is in the shop when her mom, Dorlece, helps out (along with baby Bella) and Linda's youngest, Bayli (16), helps her mom, Kelli, out most Sundays & is there this week because it's spring break.
Judy's g'daughter, Jordyn, played her cello for us at Christmas open house and g'son, Eli, has frequently checked out Judy's favorite haunts with her. Sage is a seasoned garage saler & knows where every bathroom is in every flea mkt. in Springfield. I'm sure as they grow older, they'll have great memories of running around with their g'ma and "the aunts" as we're frequently called.
I promised myself that I'd start my taxes tonight. Is there anyone else who has such a difficult time getting taxes done? Seems I'm the only one around who still hasn't done them. I hate, hate, hate, hate working with anything related to bookkeeping. Oh, well, it's now or never.
