Bunnies In My Garden!

Sunday, April 29th, 2007

Before I go antiquing for my “country store” today, viagra I wanted to tell you a little story. A couple of weeks ago I was digging and pulling weeds in my garden, cheap when I heard little squeeky sounds. The ground began to move up and down!!! My first thought was, sovaldi oh no, that mother rabbit has come back to my garden again, and had her babies! If it was true, it will be the third year she has done this. I wanted to see. As I pulled away some weeds, underneath was a layer of fur. I gently pulled it over and underneath, there they were, tiny little babies, no bigger than 2 inches long!!! Oh they were just TOO CUTE! Almost every day, I go to see them, and momma doesn’t seem to mind at all. This morning I visited, and was surprised to see how big they have gotten in such a short period of time. This bottom photo is the one I took this morning. They are so cute. Now, I better get ready to antique, before all the treasures are gone. The sun is finally shining, and it looks like it’s going to be a beautiful day. Bye for now.

Sunday at Rennigers

Sunday was a big day at Rennigers. It was opening day for their flea market. Got up at 5 a.m. Met my friend, mind Carole, at 7, and down the Pa. turnpike we went. It was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for outdooor antiquing. We just couldn’t wait to get there, and when we did, we quickly parked the car, and walked as fast as our legs would carry us, to see what treasures we could find. Oh, my gosh, it was huge. HOW EXCITING!! We wondered, in what direction should we go first. Our eyes darted everywhere, looking for primitives. I don’t think we were there more than 10 minutes, when I spotted a lovely 18th squash bottle, also known as an onion bottle. It gets it’s name because of it’s shape. I had to have it, and tried to get the seller to come down in price, but he wouldn’t budge. I told him I would think about it and walked away, but, in a few minutes, I quickly turned around and went back to purchase it. I couldn’t pass it up. I have learned from past experiences, that if you don’t buy something you love right at that moment, and if you change your mind and go back, it’s usually gone, and then you REALLY WANT IT!!!! I knew I didn’t want to take that chance this wonderful bottle. My next purchase was a makedo wall shelf, well not a shelf, but something that I thought would be perfect to hold magazines, Early American Life fits perfectly! Then I met the sweetest old man that was selling some lovely old embroidered linen towels that have been in his family, one marked 1833. Bought it! Also got an old pine box and a German candy container, large cutting board, and 2 huge picture frames made from old wood. My girlfriend paints portraits, and these frames will be perfect for them. Remember the lawn geese that was so popular years ago? I never see them around anymore, but one dealer had a pile of them that he bought from a farmer, and was selling them for only $5.00 each. We each bought 3, now I wish I bought more. That was the last row of dealer and we are hungry and decided to have breakfast, and then head home with our treasures. It was the end of a perfect morning, and we were both anxious to get home and “putz” around the house. Now it’s time to go and put those geese out on my lawn and begin my day. Be sure to check my “country store”, one of the items on this table is in there, do you know which one it is? Hmmm? Until next time, take good care and have a happy day.

It was 9:30 and a rainly morning. I was still in my robe, treat when my friend called and asked if I wanted to go to the tent sale at Pheasant Run Antiques, treatment in Coatesville, buy Pa. It’s my favorite shop, so I COULDN’T resist. She asked me to meet her at her house, and I was glad she did so I could see her kitchen again. Denis lives in a wonderful old house built in the 18th c., and she just had her kitchen remodeled. I love it. It’s so perfectly done, attention to EVERY detail. After she showed me around,
and I took a couple of pictures, we grabbed some homemade oatmeal cookies, and off we went. I love the drive down rt. 82, around Unionville. It’s all open horse country and every twist and turn is one beautiful old house and barn after another. After an hour’s drive, we were there. It was freezing cold, AND SO WINDY! There were lots to see, but nothing really caught my eye, but then I found a very nice old rag rug rug runner, almost perfect condition, for only $8!! What a deal! Denis found a nice old metal planter anad a beautiful pair of old knitted stockings. We left the sale, happy with our finds, and anxious to get home. I am so glad she called, it was such a fun day!

Snow in April

April Snow
The weather has been so cold and this Sunday is Easter. I was remembering last April when i took this photo outside of my sunporch window. It was a lovely day and the trees were in bloom. I had just finished hanging clothes on my clothes line, sale when suddenly there was snow! What a strange site to see the beautiful Spring blooms on the trees, amongst the endless milllions of falling snow flakes. Not to worry, hot Summer days will be here before we know it, and we will be wishing for the fresh cool air.snowinapriljpg2.jpg
