awaiting arrival of company

I am excited to have both of my sisters come visit this week from Texas and California---the first one arrives in less than an hour!  Woo Hoo!!!!

The Saint Louis hook-in was yesterday---we went on Friday and got to do some antiquing and have a wonderful dinner at Gian Tony's on the Hill---YUMMY!  Drove home in lots of rain.

here are some pictures of my booth at the hook-in.

the last picture shows the hook necklaces that my husband made---have to get him to make more as only two are left...

The middle picture is me with my helpers---thank you Kate, Jody and Cheryl---also if you look closely you'll see some boo boos on my left hand---Thursday afternoon I jumped on my bike for a quick ride after packing the Pathfinder and took a spill as I was turning onto the bike path as my tires slid and silt and I lost control---ouch!  I'm sill hoping I didn't break my finger---it was ugly!  I was bruised and sore all down my left side and of all time I didn't take my cell phone with me and had to ride my bike back home about 1/2 mile.  I am not too anxious to get back on my bike.

We are finally having a beautiful day in Kansas---sunny and warm!
Here is a picture of my antique find in St. Louis---a hand embroidered paisley in remarkable condition.

Gotta run---Sister Marsha will be here soon,


  1. Anita ~ Enjoy your sister time.
    Your booth looks wonderful! Is that antique paisley covering your tables?
    Oh, I do hope the finger is not broken. Thankfully the injuries weren't worse.
    Gorgeous paisley.
    Hugs :)

  2. Your paisley find is wonderful!! Your spill on the bicycle reminds me of another spill that happened once!! Miss You! Enjoy the time with your sisters!!

  3. Beautiful paisley!!! Your booth looked great!!

  4. Have a wonderful time with your sisters! I don't have a sister, but I hear they are fantastic! Enjoy!
