Wooo Whoooo! My goal for this month is to post everyday during my birthday month, sharing with you my gifts and my travels! Remember, blogging is good therapy for me so just bear with me, hop in and act like you're enjoying the ride, ok? (buckle up! ;)
My morning started at 5am and I was out the door a little after 6am headed for breakfast at...
where I met my Louisiana blog friend Sandi (Impatient Cajun) for the first time in person. (Love her!) So with a hug, lots of chatting and a quick bite to eat, we met Sarah at the city wide garage sale in Breaux Bridge (pronounced Bro Bridge).
This is one of the oldest draw bridges in South Louisiana. It sets the sight for the beautiful historic district on Main Street.
Who would have thought that this tiny little town would have been expecting ME today? Aside from the garage sales, how sweet it was for them to decorate their door fronts for ME, the birthday MONTH girl??? I felt so special!
The weather was beautiful and we couldn't have asked for a better day. Well, maybe a day with a little less humidity! Bad hair day! ;)
The streets were lined with goodies and people were shuffling to and from looking for some good finds. Here's a few shots of some of the grandeur of Main Street.
All three of us found some really great finds and most of them were found in the first hour of the day. The trunk was full in no time flat. So with content in our hearts (& in the trunk) we called it quits a little after 12 noon and went out for some pizza!
There we ate and chatted some more. We really had a great time and we have so much in common. I hope we get together again this month as the next two weekends will be full of thrifty finds at the Antique School House Fair and the 7-mile Yard Sale!!! The only downfall is...I really have to be on my toes when shopping with Sarah. She ALWAYS finds the good stuff first! ;) She found some wonderful vintage velvet millinery in an old stash of boxes that were on a trailer. She's so sneaky I tell you! Then, not to mention, Sandi is just as sneaky as she found this ziploc with these beauties...I could have fainted...
You can visit Sandi and Sarah as I am sure they will be posting about their wonderful finds soon. They REALLY found some great stuff. As for me, I found some great stuff too. I have to clean all my goodies before I can show you so I'll do that on my spare time and post about it during my birthday month!!!!
Oh, here's a photo of the inside of my trunk. This is after Sarah took her stuff out!
The thought of hitting them on the head and running away with their goodies crossed my mind a million times yesterday. But, then I realized that I loved these girls too much to do that...but I'm still jealous!
I'll give you a little hint though, the 1920's Underwood typewriter is MINE! yay!!!! All the keys are there and it still dings! $10
Thanks for coming along with me and the girls. Thank you for all of your sweet comments and encouraging me to get out and go have fun. Hopefully I'll be on the road again next weekend and the weekend after, looking for more vintage finds to share!
And special thanks to Stan, The Elegant Thrifter, for stopping by on my last post. It's such an honor to have him visit me! He's like my "thrifty idol"!!! He's so fabulous!!! If you haven't met Stan yet, hop on over...you're going to LOVE him!!!
