It's been so long since I have posted...I almost forgot how!
More about why it's been so long later.
For now...here are some pics of some of the wonders that I saw when I went to the fabulous Madison Bouckville show in August.
Yes, I know...that was two months ago.
My first parking spot was literally at the edge of a corn field.
This photo is out the front windshield before I exited the car!
Can you feel the excitement?
As usual, my heart was pounding at the prospect
of finding my brand of junk!
Enjoy the photos!
Three beautiful days of antiquing and visiting with friends
was such a treat!
This show is still my favorite.
Later this week, I will share pics from the booths of Vicky Potter of Gypsy Paintbrush and Colleen Bloom from The Vintage Room.
You will enjoy their distinct, feminine and pretty presentations.
Now, about my unplanned and long blogging break...
Well, Life got in the way.
The many joys of life...
...as we were very busy and had a ton of fun
with family and friends at the lake this summer.
And then there were some hard times too...
...our family, like yours, has had its share of loss and illness.
Fortunately, we are holding tight to one another and our faith.
So, that's why I have not been online much...
...I have been focused on family.
Having said that...
I have, however, been an Instagramming fool...
using the IPhone 5 my son Dan bought me last Christmas.
IG must have been invented for lazy bloggers like me!
Here's why I like it...
...my phone is always with me anyway, it's quick, immediate
and the photos are a bit gritty... not meant to be perfect...
...although you would be amazed at some of the shots on IG.
Not to mention the amazing apps and editing tools
which I have yet to get into.

Meanwhile, I hope YOU are well...
I have much catching up to do with everyone's blogs
and hope to spend a little time doing that soon.
A special thank you to the dear friends and readers who have taken the time to email, message me or send handwritten notes...
...your thoughtfulness and expressions of concern
have meant the world to me.
I am grateful for your kindness and feel so blessed
to have each and every one of you in my life.
Be back soon with more Bouckville photos!
