Farewell Florida Yard Sales

The van is packed full and Mr. Flea has had it!
There is not an inch of space left. 
In fact, I considered leaving Starla behind
 but Dad is not too fond of cats.

We are leaving bright and early in the morning.

So...good bye to Florida's flea markets, church and yard sales.
Good bye to sunny skies and the beautiful Gulf... sea gulls and sand cranes... golf courses and sandy beaches.
Good bye Daddy 
Good bye sister Lynn

...and hello to New York's beautiful mountains... spring flowers home Dan and Kate friends and family.

I just got back from Sarasota, Fl visiting with my sister and went to the Red Barn Flea Market...2 years ago my sister went to FiFi's garage sale and bought me a few treasures! They live close to each other! I miss the wonderful weather that we had down there too...but looking forward now to our own beautiful Spring colors!~Hugs, Patti
