Last weekend, Antiques Iowa was crazy busy. Spring was sweetly warming up our days. Everyone was out enjoying. I thought that I would just take some pictures of green glass in Antiques Iowa.

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light. May good luck pursue you each day & night.



 When you think of green, what do you think of besides SPRING? Green can be used as a neutral in Interior Design because it goes with every other color…just think of a meadow scene with flowers, sky & stream! Green is prosperity & many financial offices are painted green because it is the color of money. Green can vibrant & also calm. I think about the ocean and I think about Ireland!

Even though I’m not one bit Irish, I love their blessings! My husband & I visited Ireland last August. What a beautiful country, lovely people, great refreshments ANDTHE MUSIC! We took a coach tour & I would go back in a minute; but, rent a car so that I could be on my own time & not the travel schedule. Then I could just sit & gaze up at the castles & feel the Irish spirits! Antiques Iowa 3 05 2014 001


May the sun shine all day long, everything go right and nothing wrong. May those you love bring love back to you, and may all the wishes you wish come true!

I’m wishing for Friday, March 14th just a few short days away. It is our annual SPRING BREAK SALE! It is our longest sale because we start with the first Friday & go until the Monday after Spring Break for those still traveling.

You all know this…we are not a mall that forces its dealers to be on sale. So MOST will be on sale… maybe half a dozen (out of our 130) won’t choose to be involved. Most will choose 15%, but some will be 20-40% off. It is fun to see what happens! It is a good time to visit Antiques Iowa!

May you never forget what is worth remembering, nor ever remember what is best forgotten.

I thought about leaving out the religious part of this blog. I truly don’t want to offend anyone, but this is who I am & if you were my friend, if you are going to be my friend then you would quickly figure this out. Born & raised Catholic, I’m a pretty strong prayer warrior. Last week was the beginning of Lent, a time to reflect on what we are doing right & wrong in our lives. As a child, I thought that Lent was about sacrifice…giving up something you loved like pop or chocolate & eating fish every Friday. As an adult, I know it is so much more than that. Today I read, “Ask God…Lord, how am I doing?” This is what I’m thinking about today!

So here is a little Irish prayer & also a funny Irish quote:

O Mary, hear a sinner plead,

and ask this grace for me,

that wheresoever my paths may lead

they’ll end with God and thee. ~Brian O’Higgins

As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point in the wrong direction!






Peace be with you this amazing month of March! Kim at Antiques Iowa
