New Cupboard and Spring Swap Thank You

We are finally getting a few "Spring Days" here in PA., so of course that means we are busy lil Bees again...Picking and selling 2 of my favorite activities..smile... Wanted to stop in with a Thank You to my spring swap partners. Sandi  The Primitive Skate sent such sweet goodies.It's been so long since I got to swap with her..
I love the bunny so darn cute. Some aqua,cream and brown eggs....Old masher with a nest,candle,sheep crock and a hand painted jar with my favorite Dove Caramels!! Surprisingly I still have a few left.LoL..
Thank you Sandi!!! I also swapped with Lynn  Life on the weenie ranch blog..She sent a lil mammy in a vintage sifter, some tucks and doll..... Lynn is preparing for another surgery so keep her in your thoughts and prayers.....
So of course I've been doing some picking and this was one of my keepers... It's a antique small cupboard.Not sure if it was a child's or salesman sample. It is only about 2 ft tall but no detail was missed from the inlaid doors to the little turn latches, even the drawers are made with pride. Late 1800's.Just wonderful! No idea were I'm going to put it but it had to stay...smile...I kept a few other pieces.I'll share those soon....There were a few really nice pieces but I'm to the point now it has to really tug on my heartstrings for me to want to keep it...

My daffodils are up and the tulips are getting ready to pop.We are seeing more and more green each day. Tomorrow is supposed to be just perfect then all week warm. I've had the girls alot lately so not much time with everything else,but do so love them...Hope everyone is getting some sunny days!~Amy

Spring Decor and Chit Chat

 Oh my Easter is so close. Around here we are starting to see a few signs of Spring but not much. The first day of Spring it snowed all day and has been snowy, cold and blustery.Today is our first warmer day but then the temps drop back down to the 30's.Outside the flowers are pushing up so I know soon...smile...
 It's ok I've been sick so not been outside much anyway.Finally starting to feel a little better.I haven't been to the Dr for a few years but with non stop coughing and unable to breath hubby insisted. I was thankful no antibiotics but do have to take steroids. Fun..LoL...Wanted to say Thank You to Danice Homespun Hannah's Blog for the sweet surprise in the mailbox.....
 She is such a sweet person and surprises me often. Not much going on here. Excited for Saturday as we got a call to go on a pick at a ladies house who often buys from us at fleamarket. She has the most wonderful old stuff and I can't wait to see what she wants to get rid of  plus see the inside of her house.I have been as far as the garage and have drooled.LoL. But her and her husband are the nicest people. She knows I do markets and assured me she just wants to get rid of stuff as she remodeled and isn't asking much.I have bought from her before and she is always fair.... Hubby and I are excited to get to selling. We might test a day this weekend but it's supposed to be cold. We are thinking the shop owners will be out and buying.
Hope you all enjoyed my spring decor. So many things from sweet friends always makes me think of everyone when I change up the seasons.Well hope you are all having some sunshine slowly thawing you out...smile...~Amy
