Just saying Hi!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far..Above is a image from my antique photos you are free to use it for your projects.Love the shoes and the little ball..Well I did get to go jukning but to lazy to do pics so I'll post a few the begining of the week.I didn't find alot for me but found lots for fleamarket...

I found a 1932 Philco standing radio with all the tubes and bakelite handles, The old cream top milk bottles,milk carrier,chicken crate, a yellow ware watt cream pitcher, wood barrel with lid,rowe pottery and other goodies to go to sale tomorrow.For me the best find was a tiny firkin.Last week I bought the little bucket but sold it to a friend that owns a shop as It wasn't quit right on the stack.Well the one I found this week is perfect.I did find a beautiful old spinning wheel from scotland but by that time I was out of money and the lady would not take a check so I didn't get it....So todays plans are just to take it easy the rest of the day and work on some of my beeswax pineapple orders and swap stuff....Oh and the best part of the weekend is I ran into one of my dearest friends who I lost contact with a few years back.Let me tell you she is the sweetest,kind hearted and giving person you would ever meet.She is the person who you can trust with anything and brings you dinner when your down.What's weird is we bump into each other today at fleamarket and we were both thinking about eachother recently.It was like we never been apart and we will be going to lunch soon.So excited as I really missed her...Well girls Thanks for the info on the chemo I did call the pharmactist as per Robins advice and they explained that depending on how strong a person is they do adminster both treatments. They are planning on removing the tumor around september.Thanks for the pick me up on the grumpy day.You girls are the best! I plan to take a day trip next week to gettysburg (yes it close) but I love to play tourist for the day and I'm sure me and my girlfriend will want to catch up and enjoy some prim shopping...

Well enjoy your weekend girls! Warm Blessings!~Amy

Well, Amy, you sound better but not completely out of your funk. This too shall pass. It is always good to spend time with an old friend. Reconnecting is a pleasant way to spend a day, especially if you get to go to Gettysburg to do it! Enjoy all those touristy things, a good meal and some reminiscing--definitely a good plan!
Sounds like your Dad is doing well, considering everything.
Congrats on finding that perfect firkin!

Hi Amy,
glad you are having a better day and your dad is doing well considering. You need to take a moment for yourself so you can stay strong. Sounds like you've got that covered. Enjoy!
What awesome treasures you found ;-)
Bless you,

Wow....I think I could shop a year around here and not come up with that many goodies....Don't know how you convince yourself to let go of them! Congrats on the firkin!! It's always so fun to find that one thing that's you've been searching for....Then, on to the next!! Oh how I would love to go to Gettysburg just once!!! I'm a huge Civil War buff and that would be liking living a dream!! Enjoy! Have a wonderful Saturday - glad you got some info on the meds...Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

What a fun day and I look forward to seeing all the goodies you found. Tomorrow I'm off to an antique show. Last year it was lousy so I'm hoping this year will be better. I'm afraid not to go just in case...lol!

Hi Amy,
So glad that you found your friend again. So happy you had a good day junkin. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. My MIL fell earlier in the week and broke her hip so I have been at the hospital most of the week and we moved her to the rehab facility today. My hubby just gave me a hug and said thank you for helping with his mother. She doesn't really like me so I did this for HIM not HER ykwim?? Hugs to you!!

your swap pal,

you know we all get in these funks, I know I do. Mine is generally winter blues, but you are having lots happening right now too. Your father being ill and the home improvements, I know how nice it must be to connect with a dear friend! I am thrilled that you will get together!
Sounds like you got lots of great things, and I can't wait to see!
Have a good weekend!

Glad to hear that your spirits are brighter. Nothing like a little retail therapy and a visit with an old friend to cheer us up.
Hope you find some more nice goodies.
