 This is our new venture Debbie and I will take over Berries and Ivy as of the 1st of June. We are located 28 N Main St west side of the courthouse square in Martinsville  In.   We are excited about this.  Marylou the familiar face you see at the front desk will still be there with her smiling face and personable way. 
We will carry a lot of the same great merchandise that you are used to seeing  and we are adding some new lines.  We look forward to serving our customers and hope we see new ones.  We have Yankee candles, and Keeper of the Light, Willow ,  curtains, rugs.  Also those great Black signs, lighted pictures, pillows and reproduction furniture.
If you see construction in front just come on in.    We are part of a grant for the downtown revitalization will blog when we get pictures starting in about 2 weeks.
Come by and say Hi,   Roberta will be around she isn't moving away.  Wants to spend more time with family.

Farm report  just about finished the corn planting but we have a weather report of several days  of occasional rain  through this coming week.    We had  .50 and .75 last night   As they work the fields the dust rolls so it is getting real dry.   Cows are doing well.   Breeding a few heifers for next year. 
Garden report  my green beans are about 2 inches tall and the weather man said something about chance of snow at the end of the week  sure hope he is wrong.  Planted potatoes in two old cast iron bathtubs.

Moving Slow

I have been off line since last Wed. with only an I-pad and didn't realized how much I missed my computer to be able to print or save, put pictures up Just plain missed it.  I have some pictures of why I will show in a day or two. I also have some pictures of the bldg I purchased in Martinsville, In.  on the west side of the square.  This bldg is part of the Rediscover Martinsville facade program and they will start tearing up the bldg to eventually make it look beautiful  Our windows are very large plate glass and we will have 5 windows  I will see if I can down load a drawing from the construction plan.
This is another beautiful day  we are going to go back to planting corn.   We finished up with the anhydrous  the guys use N-serve  and there clothes stink when they come home it would open your sinus.   All part of being a farm wife wouldn't trade it for any other life style.  Take care and be kind to each other quote from my Mom.     Happy Mothers  to all Moms             

 I am surprised I have 2 females thought I would have a male first.   Am I wrong in my thinking?  Just glad they are here such fun to watch as they fly by my head
