Dealers are allowed to have two big Sales a year at the
Hixton Schoolhouse Antique Mall.  This is my first for
the year.  Stop by for 30% off my booth & case thru
March 26!           (Sale excludes items marked "firm".)

If you have not shopped Hixton, Wisconsin....this little 
town between Black River Falls and Eau Claire has four 
antique stores.  The one I sell at is a multi dealer mall ~ 
certainly one of the largest in Wisconsin.  It is open every 
day from 10-5 with an easy off & on from I94.

let there be rabbits

And they begin to hop on home, with thoughts of spring in the
weeks ahead.  March is all about bunny ears!

        Just a few of my German candy containers.

safe travels my son

       Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— 
       I took the one less traveled by, 
       And that has made all the difference.
                          Robert Frost

      My son, Ian, travels from Wisconsin to Washington at
      the end of this week to begin a new adventure.  I am 
      ever so proud of his courage.  However, this mom will
      be a tear soaked longer will my one & only
      be a short drive away.  He is at that crux in the road...
      and off he goes!  Safe travels my love, safe travels.

                           Spring, sweet Spring

lights will guide you home

Winter in the country is dark.  Quiet & dark.

Night comes early, and I am amazed that all that often
lights the farm are just 4 lights: our security & porch lights 
outside and a kitchen & livingroom light inside.  Acres
and acres and just four lights.

When I used to travel to an office in Madison, I would
return late on Thursday night.  Knowing how much I 
had missed home, Dave would "light" up the farm...
turning on every light ~~ like a beacon.  

I like both: 
Knowing home by heart...just like I do when I 
get up in the middle of the night.  
And knowing home by how it reaches out to me 
across the fields, lighting the night sky like a shooting star.

Lights will guide you home...

To my Ian... "Lights will guide you home".  (Coldplay)
Safe travels my son.

sweet February

We mark winter based on our animal feed....our supply
of hay is at the half way mark on the way to spring.

And in the middle of winter sweet February arrives.  I adore getting
out hearts & vintage Valentines...sweet sweet February.
