Gifts from Misi and Chit Chat

 Good Morning! Been awhile again...I'm feeling better with the pain about 75%  better,still pain but not letting it slow me down much.Spring has arrived and you know me gotta be out there picking and selling.We got to do a wonderful pick at a old farm about two weeks ago.The man was a retired picker himself and wanted to get rid of everything.We were lucky enough to be first to go through and let me tell you he had no attachment to any of it and gave me a great deal.I've already sold most of it and didn't think to get pictures.Amazingly I didn't keep anything..smile..Was tempted to keep the old mercantile scales but I do already have one...
 Got some of my bucket gardening in.So far I've got herbs,cutting lettuce,multi color carrots and spring onions sprouting from seed.Need to get some tomatoes,peppers,zucchini and cucumbers in yet.Will buy plants for those..This is my first year doing it this way and it's already easier than the regular gardening.Usually we have the big garden out grandmas but with hubby's back I didn't think we could keep up with it...
 Everything is green and lush here in PA .The last two weeks have been "real" spring.It's been beautiful weather for me to set up at fleamarket........Sweet Misi and I did a swap a few weeks back.She sent the most wonderful gifts in these pics The shoe,and box in the first pic, The chick and old basket, and the sweet kitty below,also some wonderful smell goods and a heart and bunny garden sitter....
She is always so giving and loves to spoil others.Such a talented and sweet friend..Well girls it's saturday 5:30 am while I'm writing this so I gotta get ready,I'm off to some sales.Always a adventure never know what you'll find..Yesterday hubby found a 1890's seeder wheelbarrow it's awesome but how he will get it to market is beyond me,It wasn't for sale but he spotted it hanging in the rafters and talked to the man and he was going to take it to a museum but agreed to sell it to hubby.I couldn't say no as it was truelly a piece of history..I'll try to get some pics.Last week I bought 2 huge red wing crocks I kept the 12 gallon and sold the other,I also found some Victorian cemetery iron gate post they were ornate and just wonderful,he had the gate too but wouldn't sell it.I did already sell the gate post as well.Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! A few of you are having troubles and please know you are in my thoughts and prayers!~Amy
