August-a trip to the beach, a funeral, a birthday, and a wedding coming up......





This crazy roller coaster ride of life........I had always thought when I got older I would sit around and be board and travel a lot.  Nope none of that.  We always travel to the beach in August when everyone else has gone back to school and it's less crowded.  All year I look forward to this time and this year a week felt like an over night trip.  We almost postponed the trip knowing that my mother in law was failing and getting much worse.  So the whole trip my husband worried about her and felt uneasy.  We returned on Sunday and it was inevitable what would happen.  So preparing for this is never easy. At the same time trying to be excited for my sweet grandsons 4th birthday.



   Then we have his looming cloud of moving hanging over us. We just have no idea when.  One week it's on, the next month it's off.  We know we have no
desire to live in this area anymore with all the growth around us but, just can't seem to decide where to go or what the best deal is.  Do we take the offer or go with the appraisal and list.  Again that looming question, what to do.  On top of all that we have lived here 20+ years. You can just imagine how much stuff we have.  And big stuff like tractors, and trucks, an a loader.   Can't just put that stuff in any ole driveway.  So many days are filled with cleaning stuff out and figuring out where's all this stuff going???  I really never feel like I completely finish anything anymore.  I just jump around and put out fires.  Normally this time of year I'm packing up and heading to Texas for antiques week. But, no time for that either. I will miss it but I don't think I could find the energy even if it were possible. dang that must mean I'm getting old.......anyway just a quick post for now cause there's a wedding this weekend! Cheers, Lauri

More Texas......my buddies Kurt and Tina's tent

Check out this beautiful space in Texas that belongs to my friends Kurt and Tina Wilhelmi.  I am so lucky to call these two friends.  Not only do they help me set up, haul all my stuff to and from Texas, constantly fix stuff, they put up with me and all my issues!!!!  They are set up down in Warrenton and their show opens about a week before mine.  So normally there are still some good pieces left for me to take to Marburger for my booth.  But, not this time, all this stuff in the photos was gone before my show opened. And before the show was over they were sold out!!!! It just goes to show how well the selling is for us in Texas.  I wanted all this stuff for myself!  Cheers, lauri

You CAN teach an old dog new tricks!!!

Hey y'all, the other day a friend of mine was asking me about my blog and I was telling her I rarely post because I rarely use my laptop anymore.  So she starts telling me all about the blogger app. Well who knew???? This is this coolest thing! Why hasn't anyone told me about this??? Are all of y'all out there using this app and you just haven't told me about it. Please say your not!!! So if you aren't check it out it's the best thing ever to post on your blog!!!! Thanks Tricia for hooking me up!  Cheers, Lauri.
