Waking up early on Friday and Saturday morning, backing out of my garage as the morning sun was coming up over the trees, and heading out to the first yard sales of the Spring...(sigh)
That makes me a happy girl :)
I'm slowly coming out of my winter hibernation...yard sale by yard sale!
Last weekend was a beautiful weekend. Sunny and crisp, perfect weather to put a spring in my step and a smile on my face. I was ready for "the hunt". (and I'm not talking wildlife here)
On Friday morning, I kidnapped the Man from work for about 15 minutes and he rode with me to two yard sales. He didn't find anything, but I came back with a small little box full of goodies ;) I guess he just came with me for moral support, but something tells me that I think he likes "the hunt" too. He's just too manly to admit it and that's okay with me *wink*wink
Then on Saturday morning, I picked up my yard sale girls and off we went. We had a few sales mapped out but it's amazing how we can spot a yard sale sign a mile away and make a u-turn on the highway in a split second. We hit all the ones in our home town and then we traveled about 25 miles to a small town where they were having a city-wide yard sale. I love these small sales and this little town has them once a month from Spring to Fall. I never know what I might find but I always manage to pick up a few things every time I go such as...
Rip Van Winkle book (with great graphics), two tarnished silver candle stick holders, one linen and lace runner...total $1.60
Awesome old kitchen container rub-on labels...total 5 cents
Old Sucrets tin, Fire-King cup and saucer, one full size chenille bed spread...total $13.00
About 18 jello molds and one saucer...total $1.50
A pair of crochet booties and a glass jar with lid...total $1.00
One toaster oven (to bake my clay jewelry charms)...$3.00
12 packs of sewing patterns (for use as tissue paper)...65 cents
Spending the morning with 3 dear friends...priceless!!!! :)
I have some great ideas for these little items above...now it's just to find the time.
I'm busy working on my Savannah swaps (Jenn's event) right now. I haven't been posting as often as I should. Matter of fact, I haven't even been visiting you as often as I should and I'm sorry. I'm really having fun in my studio right now, creating in my pajamas as often as I can. I promise to catch up with you soon.
I'm planning my art retreats/travel schedule for the next couple of months and making some MAJOR decisions.
If only my real-life work wouldn't get in the way of my play time, my life would be perfect! Just kidding...no matter what you see here in blog land...Nobody's life is PERFECT, right? ;)
Get out of hibernation and as Tristan always says..."Go create something beautiful"!!! I just love him!
