Great Day in the Morning!

This is Ann. Her Blog:  She wanted to see the cow creamers.

   It is a great day here at, My Old Historic House. Not only is a free day, as Feb. 29th, 2012 is a leap day and because of that, that gives us one day we usually do not have. But, the sun is shinning here in Middle America, Clarksville,Mo. and it is 65 degrees. What a beautiful day.
   This day is special in other ways as well. First off, I had a visit from one of my  Blogger friends. Ann, from A Sentimental Life and 3 of her friends made a trip to visit me, Sissy, My Old Historic House and the shop, Richard's Great Stuff.Ann is from Illinois, right out side of St.Louis. They traveled a few hours to get here. It is always so exciting to meet the person behind the blog. No matter how many pictures we post and share it is always better in person. You can visit Ann's Blog here. Ann has a wonderful garden house, and  that was one of the reasons I was attracted to her blog. Then to learn we are almost neighbors, makes it even better. It really is a small world, some of her friends grew up in Louisiana, Mo. 9 miles up the road and another works with my cousins.

This picture of Ann's Garden House is what made me visit her blog for the first time. I am so jealous, as I want one so bad.

   The other exciting thing that happened today is the new addition of Victorian Homes is out and I am featured once again. It is the second time in a year. The first spread was  12 pages, this one is only 3. It features my bed rooms . I am very proud this has happened. I have copies for sale. If you have trouble finding one and would like to buy one, just email me. They sale for $6.00. I understand they should be on the news stands by March 5th.

    I some times get down and worry about the smallest of things. But then I have days like this, where I am truly blessed. I wish all of you could come by for a tour.  You are welcome anytime. I will leave the lights on and Sissy Dog will meet you with a jump and a kiss. She sure will, Ann got a big jump and a kiss ,on the nose, as soon as she walked in the door.
   I hate to say Spring is here. I wish is was. But today it sure seems like it might be. I know we are all ready for it and anxiously waiting. I hope you are having a great day, just like I am.
