Hello, I have been fortunate enough to go to a couple of estate sales the last two weekends. I knew the ladies, who have passed away, and although that was sad, and I will miss them, their estate sale was wonderful. I found some really neat tea pots, plates, cups and saucers, bird figurines, a bedspread, and some books. I will enjoy the finds, and think of them with fondness as I use them, or should say look at them. I look forward to the next ones over the summer and trips out of town for the stores I usually don't get too until school is out and my daughter and I go.

Hello everyone, well I am another year older, had a great birthday with friends and family!! Lots of beautiful flowers and cards, gifts, e cards, and phone calls. It started early in the week and was going on all week!! :-) A friend at the senior center gave me a beautiful shawl, black and very elegant! Another, flowers and still another earrings. The two chefs baked a cake and had a lovely card signed by many. They even sang happy birthday to me, I felt very special indeed. My son gave me flowers, grandson sent a beautiful arrangement from Florida!! Cards with special messages, and phone calls filled with love. And since I love estate sales, garage sales, and flea markets my dear hubby gave me money to spend!! Woot!!! Woot!! I also had a lovely Antique club meeting and the hostesses came through with delicious food and shared stories of their purchases from our last bus trip to a great Antique mall. This afternoon there is a a birthday party for all of us that have May birthdays. Not only do I help with that, I can celebrate my birthday as well. Oh, and their was an estate sale on way home, that money that hubby gave me came in handy!! Oh my, the flea is also tomorrow, the weekend will be busy!! Until next tine, Antique Rose

Well,,,,,,,,,,, I asked for warmer weather, got it with a capital T!!!!!!!!!!! Yesterday and today close to ninety degrees!!!!!!!!!! I won't complain, after all who knows what next week will bring. It has done in my sweet peas, just when they have decided to bloom! Roses are all opening at the same time, oh well, they are very pretty!! Can't believe it is almost the weekend already, are you ready for your Mother's Day? Got my cards sent out, and that's a plus. It is to the valley we go this weekend. Yikes, it will be hot!! Thank goodness for air-conditioners. Went on a trip to San Francisco this past Tuesday. It was a lot of fun, crowded on the Muni buses, but interesting, and the Legion of Honor was neat. Had a presentation of dresses made from paper. Just beautiful, by Isabelle de Borchgrave, called "Pulp Fashion", must have taken many hours of work just for one, and there were many in the collection. This was close to San Francisco bay, and the Golden Gate Bridge was in sight. Got some lovely pictures to share with the other people in our group. Later~~~~~~~Antique Rose
