Its Been Awhile

It's been a few days since I last posted, more precisly a month and a half give or take, that I don't believe I'd like a replay of.  My mother-in-law in the emergency room - twice, then my mom in the emergency room to put stitches in her arm and then a fire. They are fine and the fire could have been so much worse ... a smaller outbuilding and then it had started on the big barn when the fire department arrived. We weren't at home and our son was at work. I am so thankful that we have great, watchful neighbors out here in the country. Our neighbor's grandson (they are about 1/4 mile from the crossroad) saw the smoke and alerted his grandmother. When we arrived home, nothing of the building or it contents and surroundings were left, just flat and black. Fortunately no one was hurt, it was just material things, some of which can be replaced, others can not. Our son had stored some things from his room when he left for school, and him and his dad had stored part of a 20 year collection of fly fishing rods, reels, lures and old boat motors.
Things can change in a heartbeat, in the blink of an eye, and when you aren't looking, what seems like a bad dream, with God's saving grace, turns into a blessing. He is amazing!

On a brighter note, in May we set up at "A Simpler Thyme Primitive Show" in Noblesvile, IN, just an hours drive from home. A good time was had catching up with friends. We opened without any rain and had a great, productive day and alot of laughter. Here is a peek at our booth and you can see more pictures of the show at Bev's picturetrail  here.

Last weekend, June 12 & 13, we set up at "A Country Gathering Show" in Elizabethtown, IN. Although it rained buckets and buckets and stormed every evening and morning, the sun managed to come out in the afternoon and made for some good sales. Here are a few peeks at that booth.

I'd like to think that I'll be posting more often, in fact I do have some finds I'll share here as soon as I get some pictures, but until then, stay dry and cool depending on what part of the country you're in. Here in Indiana we can't seem to get more than two days without rain and alot of it.
     And by the way, if you're here, leave a note so I don't
       feel like I'm the only one reading this.
