Back in the Saddle.......First things First

First things first, give credit where credit is due.

When I last posted - I think it was in the afternoon on Christmas day - I shared some photos from my Pinterest boards.

 I did not know the origin of most of them, but thanks to some savvy readers, have identified a few.

One of my favorites, the simple but so lovely entry hall with matching painted closet doors,

apparently belongs to HGTV star Sarah Richardson.

Who knew?
I am not a television watcher, nor have I kept up with HGTV in several years.
 I realize I have been missing a lot after looking at Sarah's website.

Her style is refreshing and  crisp and I can't wait to become familiar with more of her work.

Another favorite photo I shared came from the wonderful blog Color Outside the Lines  in a post titled
 Love......Fun Lamps!

 I don't think I actually knew this information at first, as I re-pinned the photo from someone else - the fun and the curse of Pinterest, at least if you are needing original sources!

Here it is again - I still love it - the lamps as well as the whole grouping of interesting things.

So, thank you to Artie of Color Outside the Lines!!

Now that I have taken care of that bit of business, I am going to get back to the business of blogging.

I set up at the Winter Round Top Show in January and had a great show.
Quite early in the show, one of my dear antiquing buddies marched right into my booth and said, quite emphatically,

Well, man!! You must have bad bloggers block!!!

Uh.....you noticed?

She proceeded to tell me how she lives in this little town way out in the middle of nowhere and reads my blog regularly (which of course is a very nice compliment) and how I had written absolutely nothing in weeks!!
Yes, I am aware of this.

 So, I of course did not deny her accusation.......it's a little more complicated than that, but who had time for a long story?

I'm just glad someone missed me.
Thanks, Gayle,
 (most fabulous dealer of majolica, tramp art, faux bois, textiles, tole ware,vintage Christmas,  and all sorts of incredible antiques ever to be found at the Marburger Farm Antique Show every single spring and fall! ) even if you are a bit direct in telling me how you feel!

Anyway, I am back and I have stories to tell.


  1. oh i do love that room and those lamps too!
    thank you for visiting me

  2. Yes, I was wondering about you! Glad you're back and haven't dropped the blog. People have a way of fading in and out in the blog world. You were missed, Ann!

  3. I have missed you! Although someone blogged some pictures of your booth (must have been from Winter Round Top) so I was able so see some of your great things.
    I have missed your color.....your folk art!!!

  5. You def were missed!
    Glad you're okay and back.
    xo xo

  6. I'm looking forward to your stories! I missed you, too, but I know that people post when they have something to say. :-)

  7. So good to see you posting again! I have missed your lovely thoughts and fresh ideas :) Hope all is well with you, Ann.
    .... Seems like I owe you a cabin tour. Maybe one afternoon when the weather clears up a bit.
