Pink Wednesday at Monticello Antique Marketplace!

A peek at Lisa's booth....Tickled Pink!!
Pretty things in Sue's new space.
A lovely statue in Mary Mac's space.
The garden room!
Faded pink at Colby Cottage.
My best laid plans always seem to go cattywampus. The three bears I thought would be done.....aren't. And they won't be until next week sometime. Bummer. Focusing on the little bears for so long, I forgot how much time the larger bears take!! Besides that, my sister is here. Whatever makes me think I can get anything finished when I have family visiting? Not only that, my mom is coming with two of her friends this afternoon and will be here until Sunday!

Add to the stack, the french farmtable in my booth at Monticello sold so I have to do a complete redo on my booth this morning or everything will end up on the floor tomorrow. I had a feeling that silly table would sell around this time and really add to the chaos. Sure enough!! It's all good though. I'm dragging my sister and Bill with me this morning to help and then voila! all done. :o)

I'll be away for the rest of the week....we get a diagnosis, or at the very least, some sort of direction as to what's going on with my mom, tomorrow. I'm glad my sister is here. Happy thoughts. Think happy thoughts.

Warmest Pink Wednesday bear hugs, Aleta

Hi Aleta,
Fabulous piccies and I'm not surprised your farm table has sold - it was fabulous!
I'm glad you have your sister for company and support this week. Will keep good thoughts and fingers crossed for the best possible outcome. Take care.

OUR table sold???? I guess that's what we get for dragging our feet...getting ready for our show last weekend. We have to get our priorities straight!! That was an amazing table. We will talk about the one that got away for many years to come!! :o)

Talk to you soon,

You are so sweet to feature our booth on your blog today. The picture you took is actually on Isabel's half of the booth which we recently decided to divide to make two booths. Just wanted to make sure she got credit for you showing "her stuff." Congratulations on selling your big table at Monticello! It was awesome! Your booth looks so pretty. I love seeing what you have everytime I go.

Best wishes,
