Hello all….It’s 5:30 a.m. and why am I up at this Godforsaken time of the morning you ask? My husband is scheduled for a colonoscopy at 7:00 in Portland. Neither one of us slept last night. Why I didn’t sleep is a mystery, but the reason for his tossing and turning has to do with a possible flu, that curiously began last evening. Right in the middle of the great Colonoscopy preparations, he started getting the chills. Never having been through this before, he was starting to think it was lack of food! The orange Jell-O and the yellow Gatorade just weren’t cutting it! Being a seasoned contender at this (twice now!) I knew that wasn’t it. So….we will see what the day will bring….he’s just rising now and we will head out shortly.
As some of you might know, I was hit with a bunch of spam. I’ve cleaned out most of it….I had a HUGE number of Anonymous spams about pills, enlargement devices, and other various crap that seemed to take over my blog! It really ticked me off. So….I had to disable the anonymous feature and I apologize for anyone that cannot get into the blog.There really was no other way around it. Having said that, I apologize once again for not being around here much! Some of you have come by anyway and I so appreciate that!! We had a wonderful holiday. I have been very busy with antiques I got from Peaks Island that I am sorting, researching and selling for a friend. Right now I am working on two good sized lots of Dollhouse Miniatures from the late 60’s into the 70’s. We will soon be listing them on Ebay. A woman from the island was quite handy when it came to crafting these wonderful little treasures. From old buttons, antique pieces of jewelry, and great imagination, wonderfully unique items were created by her. Here’s an example of one of her many chandeliers for a dollhouse…..
The bottom is an old brooch with garnet stones. Above that is a combination of old jewelry. The stem are crystals and diamond (not real) studded jewelry pieces and the ceiling tile is hand painted….isn’t this something? They are mini treasures and I have a lot of them…it will be fun.
I hope you are all well and I promise I will be by this week to see what you have been up to this winter thus far. Thanks for being so loyal and sorry for my absence! I am going to try and get back every week. Hope you are all well!!!
