I think we can all agree that this has been an unusual year thus far to say the least.  In my case, it has also been a year of loss.  Another brother passed away in May.  My brother Johnnie.  Someone who always made me laugh.  It took me a while to process the fact that I've loss 3 of my siblings.  There were 6 of us.  Two girls, and, 4 boys.  Now there are 3.  Myself, sister Lacy, and brother Dannie.  I'm okay now.  Grateful for memories.

 “Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;”
  Romans 12:12

Due to cancelled shows, and other issues, The 3 French Hens July Market will be my first show of the year.

I'll have photos soon.

Hugs for you all.  Be nice to each other.  Tell those you love how much you love them.  Time is short.


  1. So sorry for your loss Rosemary. It's hard to lose our family members. I agree to tell those you love that you do love them so much. It's something we all need to hear. Good luck with your show! I know that I am looking forward to doing more "normal" things, like attending shows and shopping my favorite thrift stores! Jan

  2. hello dear Rosemary, I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. I know what it's like to lose a sibling and it's such a devastating loss, personally and to the family as a whole. Please take care and be safe at the show, I hope it's great for you. I'm so ready to get back to being able to shop again!

    1. Thank you Debra. I'm looking forward to the show, masks and all.

  3. Sorry Rosemary for the loss of another brother. I know you will be excited for the Three French Hens to start up. I think we are all excited to have shows starting again.

  4. Oh Rosemary, I am so dreadfully sorry for this loss. I cannot fathom how much it hurts.

    I loved finding out two out of your 3 brothers have MY two brothers' names - Johnny and Danny! And we are all old and they are not John and Dan - they are Johnny and Danny. ♥♥

    I have been in quarantined isolation avoiding the virus since I am high risk. I hope you did not lose your brother to the virus.

    I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you deal with this sad time.

    Please find comfort in your fond memories of your dearly departed.

    Blessings to you, Rosemary.

  5. So sorry to hear Rosemary. Haven't commented on your blog in a while, so finding this post - I was certainly saddened for you. Stay well
