The Old Tattered Flag

Wednesday, August 29, 2012


Well, the time has finally come and we are almost through with the worst of it.  The packers have spent three long days here packing us all up, except of course my business stuff which I insist on taking with me so I don't miss a sale.  Give me a computer and a shipping scale and I'm all set.  We have packed bags, boxes, nooks and crannies with wool, hooks, patterns, frames, you name it.  It is daunting!!  My husband tells me that in Missouri, right down the road from our house is a "swap meet" that occurs every Sunday.  Well, I have already told Mom that we will be downsizing some more.  Do I really need that box of old quilts that has been in my "I was gonna...." pile forever?  Mom of course says "ok, I'll sit and hook and maybe we can meet some new hookers."   
So, tomorrow the real adventure starts when they load up our whole household onto the 18 wheeler and we head to Missouri.  We are sad yet excited at the same time to see our new house and explore the area.  
So, NNY, thank you for a wonderful 6 years.  My boys basically grew up here and many happy and a few sad times have occurred as well.  I will always have a soft spot in my heart for this area and I'm just sure we'll be back.  
Stay tuned for photos from Missouri and our new Shop.  
Until next time........

About Me

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
