It's almost Thyme

 This week promises to be cold.Fresh fallen snow on the ground I don't mind I'm a nester and enjoy the coziness of home...I am looking forward to getting my hands in the dirt and tending the gardens. The little homestead farm I enjoy taking a drive to is having cutting fields this summer so excited to have fresh flowers. They also welcome Issaboo so she will enjoy sniffing the country and a snack after from the local farm shop. I have started to bring the Spring decor out inside.....
 Also have been going through and downsizing some.As I get older I realize there are better things to do than chase dust bunnies..smile.... I sold my farm table and antique zinc top dry sink and hubby has been working on a rustic bar/counter it's about 80% done.I'll show you soon...
I fell over the summer and hurt my knee.I thought it would get better but has not it's really bad so I will be going for a MRI.Please send healing prayers and vibes that some shots will be all that is needed. Life has been a little hectic the last 2 weeks here all finally worked out but for my swap girls it will probably be another week till I get the Spring swap posted. Hope you all are enjoying the last days of winter and looking forward to Springs promises.~Amy

Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday! Old stone church on the way to Grandma's house..I used to go to Sunday school her as a child. Getting ready for a walk in the park with the dogs. 40's today than another Arctic blast.. Indoor flea market went well.I had one table of Antiques then the rest was just a mix of stuff. Glad I took both because it drew in everyone. Had one crazy lady wait till I walked away to look at stuff try to get our address from my hubby. She told him I said she cold come go through the house and buy stuff. She even left her phone#. He said I can't believe you are letting people in your house.I of course never said it. I talked to her while she decided on a antique biscuit box which she talked me down on then had to borrow money to buy. Were she got the idea of coming in my house I have no clue. Other than that it was busy and I found a few small treasures. Have a great week friends!~Amy
