A Welcome Home

Our soldier is home on break... and he is so glad to be back.

I made him a cheery patriotic sign to welcome him home.

He hadn't been home too long when we took this photo and he looks so tired, poor guy! The jet lag takes some getting used to.

We were coaxing him to try and look awake!

He's going back in about 9 days. Let's just say he's really been appreciating the good 'ol USA!

And we've been glad to have him back, especially dear Hubs.

As for me, I've been busy with Dear Bebe, having company (Ms. Daisy and family were here for T'Giving...hoping to get photos soon), and getting things ready for the holidays.
I just listed some items from recent antique excursions Mom and I went to while she was here.
Here are a few of my favorites:

We went to a local auction and found some great things... many of the items I took to my antique booth. There are things that sell better there than on my website. Like vintage toy cars for instance. Not a good fit for "Bella Rosa", eh?

I'd love to see what you've been up to .... I'll be perusing the blogs later on after Dear Bebe goes "night night!"
