Where have you been??? 
What have you been up to???
I know I haven't posted in a while ~ so sorry.
Life just seems to get away from me sometimes ~ even spinning out of control.
A couple of times I sat to write a post only to end it for another day ~ because something came up and I wouldn't be able to finish it.
So lets catch up!  
Recently my husband and I had celebrated our 21 yr. anniversary.  My where have the years gone?
I can't say they have all been joyous ~ but they have been good!
That's Life
My Son ~ Michael and DL ~ Anita gave us a beautiful bouquet of flowers.  Thank-You!

The baby Robin's have hatched!
How can something so ugly turn into something so Beautiful???
That's Life

Went antiquing with a friend in Waupaca ~ found some treasures!
Wooden blocks, oil can, cookie cutters, vintage bottles and ink well, maple syrup tin, school slate and printers drawer.
Found this vintage suitcase for my daughter ~ Love it!!!

I also went to an Estate Sale ~ so many wonderful things!
I bought
Vintage irons

Got to have some glass!!!

wooden bobbins, shoe form, sock darners, pinkeep box


hog scrapers ~ cobwebs were free!

patterns, and a basket filled with tin cups with a pattern to make them into pinkeeps
So many Beautiful things that I really don't need ~ but Love to collect!!!
That's Life

Some of the reasons I haven't been around much
(I have popped in now and then and read some of your blogs ~ have commented when I can)
I found another place to sell my creations!  Yippee!!!
(I should say she found me)
So I've been creating away (as much as I can)
I'll post more of my creations in another post!
I'll be selling some of my wares at
Back Again Furniture & Oddities
Medina, WI
This is great for me ~ it's only a mile down the road!!!
This is my Life

The other reason I haven't been around is because my very best friend Kim
(the one who manages a restaurant ~ where I help out)
Her mother is dying of cancer and they don't give her much time to live.
When Kim calls and needs help ~ I'm there for her.
(example: her grilled cook called in yesterday and Kim needed to be with her Mom)
Remember I don't cook ~ but I'll do my best ~ I'm there for you!
I must say I didn't do to bad!
As I'm writing this post the phone rings ~ it's Kim
The bartender that is suppose to work tonight can't work
(her father has cancer and they don't expect him to make it through the day)
I'll be there!
That's Life
Prayers would be greatly appreciated.

On a happier note
Granddaughter ~ Keyarra
Going to the Fairy Princess Ball
That's my Life!

Thanks so much Everyone for being there!
Welcome to my newest followers ~ it tickles my heart that you find my life interesting!

Until Next Time
Hope for the best, be prepared for the worst, and take what comes with a grin.
Prim Blessings

Wow, your granddaughter is adorable/beautiful.

I think I need to see your full line of treasures!

Yikes, Girlfriend - don't even know where to begin this comment ~ your post took me through such a plethora of emotions - probably much like you've been feeling these days. So, I'll just jump right in I guess - first - Happiest of Belated Anniversaries. Hope you and hubby found made some time in that thing called your life to celebrate. 21 years is something....and had you said they'd all been joyous, I would have questioned your sanity or veracity. ;o) Sorry to hear of those you know suffering from cancer - such an insidious disease. You are an amazing friend and support. Congratulations on the new selling venue! Hope that doesn't mean we'll see less of you here....those strawberries are adorable!! Love the baby bird photo....awwww..... And Keyarra is truly a princess....what a little beauty you've got sprouting there....Hope you take time to keep YOU well, friend - in body and soul....Smiles & Big Hugs ~ Robin
