Organizing...yeah, right!

I can't believe I haven't updated my blog since before Thanksgiving. WOW. Hope all of you had a great holiday season. Ours was Okay....then January 18th, my beloved Mom passed away. She had health issues but nothing that any of us thought was serious. She had a massive stroke and passed away 4 days later, never really recovering from the semi coma that the stroke caused. It was very sad.

April 12, I retired from work after 12 years with Hilton Reservations. It was a great company to work for and they treated me well but after my January wake up call, dear hubby and I discussed it and we decided that we could give up a few treats and live without my part time income.

As most of my friends know, I used to have an antique store. I specialized in Country American pottery and old quilts. I'm going to list some, just can't part with them yet. I hope you'll check my Ebay stores. OldGlory_Fl will be carrying the odds and ends on Ebay.

Now to get organized. I'll try to keep posting here. Be sure to visit my friends, too. Some of them have some great giveaways and contests. I know I'm still trying to win a GO from Accuquilt.

Hugs to everyone......leave a message if you want.



  1. Welcome back, retired Lady.... It's good to see you are posting again.. Do you have an Etsy shop? Might be a good place to list your antiques...

  2. Congratulations on your retirement, Joan. I am glad that you are pursuing your passions. I am sorry to read about your loss, however; please accept my condolences.

  3. Glad to see you posting again...and especially glad about your retirement; a blessing from your Mom and God.
