Broken Bones and Broken Dreams



It has been a roller coaster of a ride since the last post. Where to begin, well Connie did a wonderful job with the private sale she conducted for a client. The finds were really nice, and the best part was no crowds and no lines. It was an invitation only sale. I picked up some really nice vintage and antique items.

My daughter graduated from West Chester University in West Chester PA. Yah!!! Tuition is done. But, she moved the end of summer to New Jersey with her boyfriend. Happy to buy and help her decorate, gonna miss her.

In May I was let go from my real job of 7 1/2 yrs. I am going to miss the patients something awful. But, better and new experiences await. I will keep you all up dated.
Also in May a week after being let go from my job, the neighbor's dog came for a visit. A very nice dog, who knocked me over and broke my left leg, and my ankle. I spent a week in the hospital and 2 months confined to a hospital bed in my library. Now I am going thru painful re-hab while I learn to walk normally again.

Was not in the proper mood to sit and be nice. I know that sounds self pitty, but I kinda missed out on alot of really good sales and alot of family functions. I am looking forward to getting back into the real world.

One really good thing was on the way home from therapy with leg in a boot, I found in the trash a wonderful wrought iron set. Hobbled to the door and the owner was nice enough to load it in my car. I sat on the floor for hours, leg up on a pillow and recovered the seats to match my kitchen. Habits do not die easily. Still have a long road ahead to full recovering, but it is all fixable. Missed you all!!!

Hi, Dona - I see both you girls are back! Looking forward to your antekin adventures! I'm glad your leg is doing better - can't keep a good shopper down - I laughed when I read about you on the floor re-doing the seats on your trash find iron table & chairs!
