~REALLY EXCITING STUFF~
Ok...so I lied a little...but Saturday is our garage sale day and in my life...well..pretty much anything excites me.
Anyway...I look for two things...dishes and books. These are my finds for myself today..in PERFECT new condition. (you can see why my heart was pumping!)
I thought this cookbook was especially beautiful. I tried to capture the gold gilt edges of the pages..but they didn't show up. Ah well...just take my word, those pages JUST gleam. Anything shiny gets me...
This one I really do love and will use. Not a mark or any sign of ever being used. No names inscribed...it even cracked when I opened it. I bought all of these books for .50 and .75 cents each. But it was late ...nearly noon and they were wanting to get rid of things...they had lowered the price from $1.50 they said.
Please understand..I don't NEED another cookbook..(yes I do!) but it was NEW! For .75 cents! Well, what would YOU have done?? (I'm old and I'll KNOW if you're lying!)
To be perfectly honest here...I think it was the pictures of all that delicious food and I was getting hungry!
And these beautiful childrens books. The most expensive one was the Precious Moments children's stories. That one cost me $1.00. It is in new condition and the cover is soft and padded. Lovely!
Of course I couldn't pass these classics up. EVERY baby needs these!
Would you just look?! I even scored a couple of lovely pop out books and one that has a little keyboard so the child can play music! Emily is going to LOVE that one!
I think Emily's little library is well on it's way!
Now I know these glasses are nothing special..but...these dessert dishes were cut glass and diamond shaped...and ok...I paid $10.00 for them..but..but...I couldn't help myself! (besides my daughter, Sandy, gives dinner parties...and these are going to be used as a bribe to get her out here to California... (now to find something to bribe Kristy (GD#1) with...hmmm..money ya think?
I HAD to have a few coke glasses...
I honestly am not sure why I bought these..What??...I was on a roll!
And these green coke mugs.... they..sparkled in the sun?
And then we headed for a big pancake breakfast...it was a really, really wonderful day...oh, but then after we unloaded the car...it was off to Lowes..for..FLOWERS AND MY LEMON TREE!!!
Saturdays! I love them!
And so on to Sunday and my granddaughter's wedding reception. Another nice day?
