 Scene One, Act One: Conversation  this morning in my little rock house. Just me & my dogs, Butch & Buddy . Also know as "The Boys". 

Me: (Looking at calendar) Oh My!  Boys! I'm afraid we aren't in Kansas anymore Toto #1 & Toto #2!   (From movie ~ yes ~ The Wizard of Oz~ and I do watch it still!)

The Boys: Reply ~ Blank look, see picture below. (No dialog ~ they are still learning how to talk and can't read yet to memorize lines.  Didn't want to stress them out by pushing them.  After all, it's my Blog, not theirs. Note to self ~ Check out Sylvan Learning Centers to see if they have Canine Reading Program. If not, abandon attempt to teach dogs to read. Talking will just have to suffice.)

Me, Again: OOOOhhhhh MMMMyyyyy!  I'm afraid this isn't January anymore Toto # (Oh the heck with it) "Butch and Buddy"!  (~ Umm ahem, excuse me, I mean ~ After all, they don't even look like Toto, that would call for Method Acting and they just aren't that committed to this little scene.)
Aren't they cute?

So, It seems that somewhere along the way I have lost almost the first half of 2012. I can't believe it! My last post was at the end of January. How sad is that. Now it was a darn good post but, I admit not enough to keep you interested for 5 unblogged months.  Unfortunately it seems that the Big Fat Ugly MeanGremlin that spreads Bad Luck and Injuries and Illness visited me for each of those months. Not fair, Right???  Right?  Righttttttt!!

But I guess when you think of it this way, it's OK. Somebody has to have those issues.  It's just that I would prefer it not be me every month. I got rid of that monthly problem a long time ago and don't need another. LOL!

I guess I need to talk to the "Big Guy" upstairs and let him know I'm willing to take my turn in the barrel but I really need to have a break. I think I'm in pretty good with him as we do talk daily. Sometimes multiple times daily (sure is nice to know he is there at any time for any of us),  but I need to really get this "sick" thing over.

Nothing was life threatening, just real life getting in the way of my fantasy dream of what life should be. Oh Well.  With that said, Here goes another stab at consistency. 

I am looking forward to taking pictures and sharing some of my projects and thoughts with you. I don't know who "YOU" are. But this is something that I enjoy and I hope that maybe some of "YOU" get a chuckle from my thoughts. 

WOW!   I'm Soooooo Excited, It's June 2012! Lots of stuff coming up. Check out the pics.

Out My Dining Room Window This Morning!

God Is Good!
He Gives Do Overs & I'm Getting One!

I am starting over, again. With my blog. I hope that some friends will come along for the trip. I hope you haven't forgotten me. I know I am still "In Over My Head", but as you see, the view is lovely from my vantage point.

Believe it or not. I am here again. In Blog Land, trying to fulfill my desire to actually commit to regular posting to my blog. Yes, Really!

To explain, I had seen this blog as a way for me to justify my time. It really had a purpose. Not just a Time for enjoying & loving on my "neat stuff". LOVING the musty, the tattered torn, & forlorn vintage things that have called out my name in the most unlikely of places. Hearing the love called out in the antique, thrift, or junk stores. Called even from the side of the road, I have heard things calling me to bring them home. Asking me to make them whole again. I have had no shame or discretion. Home they came.

Sometimes I follow through with my intention to fix them & send them off to another home. A home with another lover of the "Rusty, Crusty, Broken, & Torn is Better" anthem. But, in the past it was only a matter of time until I decided many were too precious to send away. So, they stayed, in the boxes and bags, in the closet, in the garage, on the patio, & even ..... in the car. But, alas ~ the time for that to end has come. Gotta teach that stuff to dance. Dance right out of the house.

I know I have neglected my booth at Craftiques Mall as well as this blog for the past year. No excuses are being given, just fact stated. I find I really miss the adventures, new friends, information, & focus that the blog, Facebook, and booth gave offered to me. Learning to post, edit, & add photos was truly enjoyable and addicting.So ~ Today is a new day. This is a new week. I am going to take advantage of this "do~over". I'll be busy this weekend!


January 20-22, this Friday, Saturday, & Sunday. Live Band at the BierGarten, Great food & vendors.
Traditionally, January is COLD! So am packing up the boots, ear warmers, & hitting the road.

I'll have lots of new items. Plus, the FABULOUS (can't be found anyplace) Maas Metal Polish is back in stock. Just Remember ~ Barn 5, Space 14, In Over Her Head.
Hope I see you there. If not ~ I'll let ya know what you missed. Just remember, February Trade days will be right around the corner if you miss this one.

As always I remain,
In Over My Head ~ But Dog Paddling as Fast as I Can.
