    So glad you’re going to have doings in the spring!! Wish I could have stayed longer but I’ll for sure be back in the Spring with girlfriends. You did an amazing job on staging the barn with your beautiful treasures. I wore the velvet coat to see Ghost at Shea’s Theater last week and got a lot of compliments…so glad I got it.
