sunny days

well another city wide garage sales come and gone.
our small town gets busy during
the annual city wide garage sales.
i had some good luck this year finding a few treasures.

no need for an umbrella, the weather was beautiful.
in fact i found a beautiful umbrella.
here it is at the garage sale. 

and here it is in our backyard!


a guy was selling his aunts items and this was her patio set. 
it looks like it was never used, the reason
for this was she had is set-up 
in her basement! 

we are going to enjoy it in the great outdoors,
but might have to follow her lead and set it up 
in the basement when winter comes.

sweet temptation



hello!  hope you all had a nice weekend.
i was able to get out to my first citywide garage sale and came home with a few 
treasures.

unfortunately the above item was not one of them.
this wasn't for sale at a garage sale, but it was for sale at an antique 
store in town. 

how fun would this be to use in a kitchen remodel.
you could store your cute dishes and glasses,
store baking supplies and cookbooks.
so many possibilities.

now if i could only come up with the perfect reason to 
buy it.

time for a new look


 time to change up the kitchen kitsch.
(still a work in progress)
i hadn't been to target for a few weeks due to the bug
and when i did go it was like the store completely changed.
one thing i found were clocks, clocks, clocks.

big ones, little ones and just about any size 
for any room in the house.
i found the perfect one above for the kitchen.
and now i think i need one for the office.

tick tock, 
it's time to go back to target!

quiet time

sorry for the quiet blog.
i had a stubborn bug that didn't want to leave.
finally feeling better and I really want to go outside and play!
what that really means is go garage sale-ing!
