I've Been A Bad Blogger

Sorry once again.
 I am having to apologize for my absence.
I've been a bad blogger for sure.
 
Just busy getting things ready for our upcoming antique show
and still creating new goodies for the store.
 
 
So for weeks now...almost a month I have been eying this
awesome early pull toy horse.
 
 
This is an actual horse that a child would ride.
 
Someone would pull them around.
 
The price was way way out of my budget.
Every week I would look at it, wishing it could come home with me.
 

Saturday, the antique dealer that owned this horse came into our store.
I did not work Saturday, however Bob was there.
She was looking at one of our cabinets.
 
She measured the entire cabinet and said she would be back on Sunday.
Bob asked me Saturday night if I still wanted that horse.
I said yes, but it was too much money to spend.
 
 
Bob got the idea of asking her if she would be willing to trade
her horse for our cabinet.
The horse was more than our cabinet,
so we were willing to also give her some money with the trade.
 
The horse came home last night
as an even trade.
It proudly stands tall on our hallway cabinet.
 
Trading Blessings To All!
Janice
