A Visit to Mr.Trading Post Man..look what I found!

Last week while heading out for my doctor's appointment my daughter Regina and I stopped in to see Mr.Trading post man. He had gotten some different stuff and I wanted to take a look see.  I spotted a little orphan baby and had to bring her home. She is Emmy, "a little miracle" doll ,made by the Aston Drake Co. All she needed was a little wash up,and her clothes washed, now she is bout'new!

Ruby and Bethy welcomed her with open arms  :)

I also brought this vintage chalk rooster and piece of vintage pottery home.

And a shelf ,which has been given an antique look using the crackle paint effect.
I haven't really decided what to display here,but I got a few ideas going over in my mind.
For now I just set these crocks on it.

As for an update on my recovery...I am feeling much better with a lot less pain. I have an infection in the incision and am being treated for that with some strong antibiotics, which make me feel sick at my stomach. Also,a home health nurse comes out three times a week for wound care. The doctor said it may be another month before I am totally healed ,but things are looking good and I am making progress...for that I am very grateful! Praying your week is blessed ....dear friends
