Antique Quilts

What a passion I have --antique quilts! I think I need an intervention, as I cannot stop myself from constantly searching, estate sales, old farmhouse sales, antique shops....I leave my name with anyone who might possibly come across one someday, pleading with them to call me if they spot one. My dream is to turn the corner on the way to a sale, and see quilts hanging on the line, from the porch railing, stacked on blankets on the lawn. Okay, my heart couldn't handle that so God hasn't granted me that one (although He has given me so many blessings, I cannot even begin to count them?!)

Fortunately, my passion is also a business, and all but the family quilts are for sale. That is how I can afford to buy them--I have to sell them! It is okay, because for a little while, I get to hold them, to admire the fabrics, to be in "awe" of the tiny stitching, and I dream a little about what the maker was like, what her life was like.....

I love my job!

Lowering Your Blood Pressure

Hello all!

Well, just when I thought my stress level was going to give me an stroke, my
sister sent this to me --and I want you all to watch it, not only will it put a
smile on your face, your blood pressure is guaranteed to go down 20 points!

It so reminds me of being a young Mom, and letting my little girls enjoy the
unexpected treats that come their way....
