Oh yes, I got to meet Robin Schilpp from http://primitivehutch.blogspot.com/
She and her niece Niki took a 4 day shopping road trip and we met on Saturday and one of my favorite local shops Finder’s Keepers.
I saw Robins van….packed to the roof – well almost, they had to save room for the next day because they were going to the Elkhorn flea market and I just know how that went after seeing what they bought in just 2 days! lol
I met up with them Sat. afternoon at the shop and what a delight to meet Robin! She’s so cute and so bubbly but I unfortunately was not my usual self because I was hurting but didn’t want to miss the chance to meet her. I tried my best but hopefully she didn’t notice. I did do some damage .
And my purchase – a childs gown. Not sure if it’s a night gown or a Christening gown. There are a couple spots on it but I loved it and the price was right and the pin tucking down the front and sleeves is just beautiful.
I plan to have a peg rack shelf put in one of the guest rooms and hang my baby clothing from it and if I can find some baby shoes and a bonnet it would complete the wall.
Before saying goodbye Robin gifted me with a cute patriotic pin cushion/pillow tuck she made and a beautifully scented candle/tray.
Thank you Robin – I hope we get to meet again one day and this time spend more time together.

Oh we are living in a mess right now – actually the family room and screen room.
We are re-doing the family room and all the furniture has been removed to the screen room. Although at night we have to bring in the fabric chairs because it has done nothing but RAIN here and I don’t like them getting damp.
We went from light walls to a caramel colored wall. At first I thought it might be a bit dark but the more I painted the more I loved it. Sort of a Kraft bag color.
Here is the main reason we had to re-do.
The wall above the fireplace had a leak at some point (for a long time actually) before we had the new roof put on and the leak buckled and warped the wood. Any picture we had up there had to be large enough to cover the area and that was basically one that would fit and I was getting mighty tired of looking at it for years.
Sunday a friend of my husbands was generous to give up his Sunday to replace the wall for us.
Now it’s fresh and all painted and we are ready to put the floor baseboards on today.
Then the carpet has been ordered and expected to here by end of next week and then our installer will put it in and hopefully we will be back in business.
There are hardwood floors in this room but over the past 35 years with carpeting and the staples all over we just didn’t want to go through the process of having them refinished plus the room is drafty in the winter.

Thanks to all my followers for sticking with me through my MIA on your blogs.
Life has a way of stopping one from doing EVERYTHING – by the time I get my e-mails answered and sometimes getting a post done here I’ve run out of steam plus things in general.
I do see what you post as I scroll through my bloglovin – I know you are all out there and continuing on better than I am.
But I do thank you and THANK YOU to my 4 new followers! Amazing that some are still liking what I have to say! lol
Have a great rest of your week and a very happy and safe 4th of July
