 How can we say this?
Where do we begin?

This will be the last entry here at 

Our much loved Annie,
and neighbor
was called home to Heaven in the early hours
of the morning
 October 9, 2010
just a few short days ago.

We started missing her immediately ... 
and will forever.
Her soul touched everyone she met ...
and that smile ... it had an affect!

We do know, though, that she is with the Lord ...
Isn't that such a comfort?
She's probably already got a styling job in her new home ... making heaven look a little better.

you will
forever live 
in our hearts.

we will meet again!

A glimpse---

A bit of woven wonder peeking out
A spot of leather
A tiny heart skip
A full blown swoon

Love at first sight

A leather corner

Bottom strap holders

A lined interior

All of which belonged to Miss Bertha Hillger

I caught my breath---

I clutched it to my chest
I ran to pay
I floated out the door 
knowing that this love is forever

Summer always brings memories of water and sand.
I spent many happy days by the river or lakeside, playing and building
houses and castles and "someday" plans...
Little old sand shovels always make me smile.
Enjoy the sweetness of your weekend!

Piles of stuff

The cleaning up continues...
Potting space has been taken up
with more "stuff"---mostly necessary---
but eye candy ALWAYS makes working
more fun!
Antique French starter pots---some sold, some used, some just to make me happy...
 An antique tote holding bases, markers, screening and all those little necessities...
O.K. the antique seed sorter screens in the back are not necessary, but they sure are faves of mine and the lead dishes in the front as well.  Some things are too appealing to part with...for a while...

Now I need a cleaning partner who doesn't mind getting VERY dirty, sweaty and wet while using some muscle to cleanup the rest...actually, in my dreams, I have a crew...
and the money to pay them...ahhhhhh
Hope your day is great!

Greenhouse Dirt

The cleanup has begun.
Shelves have been cleaned.
Frogs are in place.
There's so much to do
and so little time...
At least it's been started.
Tidying up is good for the soul.
Even the frogs like it!

Frogs, frogs everywhere!!!

They are tossed and piled and in total disarray...
 along with every thing else in this greenhouse.

This week's project---CLEAN OUT!!
