Everytime I go out there...I remember hearing someone say.."Whenever you leave the house..remove one accessory!" Are we ever really happy, totally, with anything we have done...or is it just me?! Probably just me... *sigh*
Enlarge the photo below...and you will see exactly what I mean!
Yesterday, Sweet Husband tore all the old Red Apple ground cover out and treated the soil with amend..and today, in went the new flowers. Doesn't look too great right now, but give it a few months. Ok, maybe until next year this time...
I got my pumpkins out front, finally...added a bit of color...and I swear to you, I'm DONE! OH, and I added some new Fall flowers to the beautiful mosiac flower pot that Penny @THE COMFORTS OF HOME made for me! I LOVE that pot!! (Enlarge to see the apple of my eye in the distance...and the center of my story below.)
Another view of our porch...and my little bistro table...LOVE that table..and it is as near Cindy's @ APPLESTONE COTTAGE as I could get it! I am SUCH a copy cat!
Ok...here is today's garage sale story.
Not a lot of garage sales today..and those that were out there yielded nothing...and then it happened!
We followed the garage sale sign and drove up in front of a yard filled with lots of things...but I saw nothing..because I had seen what I wanted! This little pale yellow wheelbarrow filled to the brim with flowers..and exactly the size I wanted!
I found the lady of the home and asked her if the little wheelbarrow was for sale..KNOWING full well what the answer would be..as it was tucked into a little flower garden. She smiled said, "Oh no, that is mine and it's not for sale." I smiled back and said "Are you sure?" She said.."Well, what would you pay for it?" and I countered with "Well, what do you want for it?" She said "Let me just go inside and talk to my husband." and off she went. In few moments she returned and said.."He drives a hard bargain...he said forty dollars," I said "Thirty!" and she said "Thirtyfive" and I said "SOLD!"
Which proves, you never know until you ask! :)
I also found, on the way home..a beautiful pure white cable knit sweater for $3.00!
I DO LOVE Saturdays!
