Full Snow Moon

Tonight February 28, 2010 is the Full Snow Moon. It is called the Snow Moon because heavy snows usually occur during the month of February. If you live anywhere on the East Coast, I believe this year you have experienced some type of snowstorm this month. We have had off and on snow squalls all weekend long, they don't amount to much but after the storms that we have had the past couple of weeks, panic sets in when you see in coming down. We did mange to get out to the shop today and get a few pieces of furniture ready for our booth at Weil Antiques Center, the snow storms has stopped us from getting in to our booth to replenish.And with our antique shows starting up in about two weeks time will be tight, but hey if we didn't like this life we wouldn't be doing it! I have been drooling over Country Sampler Home Tour edition in my spare time, I'm not even halfway thru, I'm reading all the stories and tips and enjoying the pictures. I'm still looking for the new magazine Flea Market, can't seem to locate it in our area. Well, I need to read some blogs and see what auctions are on the agenda for this week, have a Good Evening.

Spring, Please Hurry We Need A Bath

Hi Everyone, We are the ducks from Ginnysyard. We live in the Duck Hilton during the Winter months and in the evenings in the warmer months, Mom (aka Ginny) doesn't leave us out during the Winter, cuz we really can't walk in the snow too good and then in the warmer months we have to go in at night because there are things outside that like to eat ducks!! But, we really need Spring to come so that we can go in our big pond and take a bath. Three of us really don't show the dirt, but boy that Danger Duck (White Pekin) sure does. Well Mom wants to read some blogs and look at the new Country Sampler Home Tours Edition and we need our rest, we are only ducks you know!!

Fastnacht Day

Fastnacht Day is a old German custom, which translates into clearing the house of fat on the day before Lent starts. Or Fat Tuesday. Growing up in NJ this was a new custom to me and my family when we moved to PA over 20 plus years ago. But, it was a custom that we grew to like very much. Everyone has their version of fastnacht's I'm sure, I usually pick up ours at the bakery in our local Giant. I think someday I would love to try a homemade one. It is snowing here in Williams Township once again, this is getting really old and I and Les are getting ready for Spring and once Spring starts so do all of our Antique Shows! We are less then one month away from our first. I will post info on that show in the next week or so. Have a Great Fastnacht Day!!

Put Your Red Dress On!!

Tomorrow 2/5/10 is National Wear Red Day. To show your support for heart disease which is the #1 killer in women we all need to wear RED. It is nationally sponsored by Macy's and Merck. I will be going to Weil Antique Center the antique mall, where we have our booth (#145) and it is a big old warehouse which tends to be a bit cool, so I know I will have a sweatshirt on and it will be RED!

And if you live in the Northeast, you need to run out and get Milk, Bread and Eggs and anything else that you can't live without, because it's coming, SNOW!! It has been the only thing that the weather weenies have talked about for days. It was almost as bad as all the hoopla over Tiger Woods. Well, I need to get things done, so I will close for now. Have a Good Evening.
