Its been a while since I've posted anything on this blog. There were many reasons for this, but the most important, was my Mother being diagnosed with lung cancer. My days were taken up with caring for her, getting her to and from doctors appointments, keeping the family business going, etc.
On December 24, 2014 she passed peacefully in her sleep. It has taken me this long to decompress, and decide what direction I wanted to go in.
I am still keeping the family business going with help from my brother and sister. But we are looking to sell the property, and close down. Know anyone looking for 3.5 acres of commercial property with 800 feet of freeway frontage along Highway 99 between Fresno, California and Fowler, California? If so send them our way.
I have also decided to start publishing some of my original crochet patterns. So far I have only one up, it can be found here. I hope to have a few more up in the next few weeks.
Along with concentrating more on my crafts, I have decided to get out of the antique and collectible business for a while. To that end I have slowing been selling off most of my inventory of depression glass, pottery, kitchen gadgets, and other collectibles. I have kept a few things for myself or to giv e as gifts to friends and family members.
Thats all the updates for right now. I promise to try and post on a more regular basis from now on.
