Hello, hello, is anybody there?

Hello sweet friends, specially my girls at Collectors Market. I have been MIA for a couple of weeks know. The last couple of weeks have been challenging to said the least. I got a triple whammy. Try this. Income taxes, sales taxes, inventory taxes, arggg. I have face them head on, I'm a big girl I can handle it. Then mix in painting with 35 miles an hour winds, clogged sprayers every two minutes, etc. We have been traveling every weekend, this week is on to Cleburne for their 28 mile Antique Alley. We will go rain or not since this is our favorite show to attend. Next weekend we will attend a city wide garage sale in Lampasas and after that is saving money time for me. I have amazed enough inventory to last me until the end of the summer. I will try to take pictures and post. I have missed my pink friends so much. Been a lurker is not as much fun as to managing a blog. I'm planning a celebration with all my bloggy friends since my 100 post is soon approaching. Until next time, keep me in your prayers and know that i love you all, sweet friends. Blessings, Marta.

Marta, I'm so sorry I missed you at Warrenton. Again I will miss you in Lampasas. We have a function that weekend and can't make it. I hope you find lots of great things in Cleburn. My daughter lives near there, but they will be coming this way. Darn! I will get out to see you sometime. I promise! Susan
