Send in the clowns

April Fool's jester. She is very pretty

Antique jester actually is a music box that plays "Send in the clowns"
I think I will take a break from resale shops. Too much stuff. I am surprised Steve hasn't protested.
Where is our spring? The frost has killed my irises. It is too cold to bicycle comfortably though I've been able to run. Buds are appearing on the trees; the peepers sing, the deer jump in front of me.
Yesterday my baby girl turned 25! She has a new job much closer to home that pays a bit better but we are still trying to find the perfect career. We had a nice lunch together yesterday. And today I took a good friend out , belatedly, for her birthday.

How long do you think you will be able to stay away from the resale shops? It sounds a bit like an addiction. A sometimes very rewarding one.

Well I browsed in some over priced ones yesterday with a friend but as things were overpriced, I was not tempted. I will have houseguests in the upcoming week. That should distract me for a while. Yep, it seems like it is an addiction.

You have a big house! you need to fill it up. And your finds are both charming and beautiful.

I also need to fill it up with guests,hint,hint. And my finds are sort of fun. I love looking for them on the internet. That $8 clown pictured above is selling for $75. Some serigraphs I got for $5 a piece are going for $500.
