One More To Go!

One truck down!
One more to go!
Craig got the box truck finished today and tomorrow he will load the van! We have more stuff than we thought! I'm actually feeling really good about this load! And I'm getting really excited about getting to Texas! I look forward to this show for 6 months, we call it our working vacation.
I am also looking forward to
It's a lot of fun and you get to meet people you have only blogged with! She even has some famous guest sometimes! Don't miss it! You'll be sorry!

I can't wait to see all my friends!
Texas here we come!

Pile of Junk!

I know, I know it all looks like junk! But trust me it's NOT! Things are coming together slowly but surely around here! We are going to the doctor 3 times a week and that's taking up a lot of my time, but I'm happy to do it! Thought you would like to see a few things we are taking to Marburger Farms. This first picture is something from a church, I can't decide if I want to part with it or not! Craig had to reattach Jesus, he can do anything!

Alabaster lamps I've been cleaning and rewiring!

This Victorian chaise is another thing I'm on the fence about! I've never seen one like it! We had to do some work on it and remove some of the wire that circled around the back but I think it turned out well! I love it!

Love these funky chairs,
I think they will look fab around an industrial table!
I have to get the backs and bottoms recovered today.

I can't get enough of these medical tables!

Two cute little tables hiding under the white shelf.

Great little store cart.

Nap Time

Clayton has gone to the dogs!
Every time he wants to take a nap
the dogs are right there with him!
This is Spencer, he's a 19 months old.
Little one is Chloe, she's 7 months old.
I've always heard dogs have special healing powers!

Show Nerves!

Well it's that time right before a show when I become a bag full of nerves! Actually I've been that way for the last two weeks! I'm having the hardest time concentrating since Clayton's accident! But this is the time when I'm getting all my smalls together to clean, price and tote up! And a survey of all the big stuff starts to hit you! Will I have enough, how in the world am I going to put this all together and make it look good, will it be good enough? You know a thousand questions running through your mind and driving you crazy! And I have so many jobs left to do I don't know what to do next! My load is odd this time, I don't have any big cupboards, but I have a ton of tables, tables and more tables! Hah! My head will finally clear up when I'm driving to Texas and remembering all the stuff I forgot! These are some pictures of the booth at the Spring show!

Clayton is doing pretty good! We found out 2 days ago he has a ruptured disc in his back and that's where all his back pain is coming from!

Table Garden!

While I was gone to Texas to pickup Clayton, Craig planted some round top industrial table seeds and they all came up! Looks like we are going to have a bumper crop for Marburger Farms! We will pick them next week and polish them up for the trip!


Clayton doing well!

Clayton has had a rough couple of days, but he is feeling better today! He even wanted to go to church today! But he was ready to get back in that bed after church! He still can't eat anything solid, cause his jaw won't open and close. I had to take him two days ago to get some back ex rays, his back was hurting him so bad he couldn't hardly breath! Nothing fractured or broken, so we made a trip to the Chiropractor for some acupuncture! He got some instant relief! Thank goodness! I'll keep you updated from time to time!

It's a Miracle!

We are at home! Clayton called me early Tuesday morning while we were eating breakfast and told me to get to the hospital that he was being released! I couldn't believe it! We got his RX filled, gathered him up some clothes for the trip and we left yesterday morning! Was a long trip, but we made it OK! I am so happy to have him home with me! He is going to have a long recovery, Doc says no contact sports, no 4-wheelers, nothing where there is a chance of being hit in the head for 1 year! Doc said one small blow to the head and it could be fatal! He still has a lot of swelling on the right side of his head Doc says will go away soon. When Clayton's med's wear off he starts having severe headaches! This morning at 4:45 am he said his whole body was in pain. He has been on so much pain med's he hasn't realize how bad he is hurt!

Does anyone have any advise on how to make a 19 year take it easy for 1 year? I hope this post makes some sense, it's been hard for me to concentrate the last few days! Again, I want to thank everyone for their concern and the out pouring of offers to help me out while in Texas! There is nothing better than a great group of blogging friends! Thank you so much!

Clayton Update

Clayton is doing much better! He still has long road to recovery, but he is alive and breathing on his own! His skull is fractured in two places, his right jaw is fractured and he still has some bleeding around his brain. The side of his face that is fractured is drooped and he is seeing double. He has had a CT scan everyday and will continue to have them until he leaves the hospital. Hoping he gets moved out of ICU today.

I want to thank all who whispered a prayer for him! I knew I could depend on my blog family to help me out! Continue to remember him, doc says he will need a whole month of recovery. He is coming home with me so I can care of him proper!

Thanks again! TOT
