Soup & Sale

I made the best soup if I say so myself . I baked a  complete package of chicken breasts and as I was putting them in the freezer I used oneof the baked breast  and made my a pot of chicken soup. I put in the pot with the chicken pieces, some fresh kale, fresh  carrots, onions, fresh garlic,rosemary from my plant , butter, cream I had some half & half.
I let this all simmer for the flavors to marry as they say in cook world,  oh then I added some fresh Parmigiano  cheese a lady gave me , she was here visiting her father from Italy,wouldn't you love to live in  Italy? I had never had this cheese. anyway thanks Nancy

       Then this Saturday  the 4th there is an indoor garage sale they call it , at the Holiday Inn expo convention center 10am-2pm. Last year head count was over 1100 people went through this event.
A friend of mine who owns a vintage clothing store ask me to share a booth with her. She rented two booths and only need 1  1/2. So I am pricing items and not knowing what all to take I am taking everything from sheets to oil painting and dishes , some bling, a fur coat small stools
My friend has all vintage clothing, purses, shoes oh and a pink poodle stuffed dog the size of a chair, that's big. It will be fun & interesting I'm sure.  She said she sells everything from appliances to vintage bakelite jewelry to old formals. Here is a few items I have out so far

    A  lamp, brown splatter ware tall container,3 new puzzles of vintage buttons from steamboat Arabia, and 3 vintage nesting mixing bowls, chalk board, candlestick and I have a platter to match the brown & white transferware tea pot and pitcher they are newer items from Home Goods

                     Oil on canvas paintings passed from a niece through my sister, bought at an art show in Kansas City Mo and now one one wants them in my family, they have never been hung on a wall
