LOOK..a fire in our fireplace tonight! The first time since last Winter. It's so nice..cozy.
We cuddled by the fire most the evening, listening to music and chatting. Nice.
It poured rain last night and all day today. About noon it stopped for a bit so we decided to go to a nearby Estate Sale. I won't tell you my tale of woe..how they sold a lovely quilt that they were suppose to be holding for me...KING size, by Ralph Lauren! Gorgeous thing. I guess I was not supposed to have it. Rule of thumb...don't leave things in the care of anyone but yourself...UNLESS you have paid for them. Best to pay and take to the car...honest.
Anyway..I did find this lamp..perfect color and in perfect shape. For now it is going over my sink for a change. Price:$5.00
Then we were off to a Thrift store...and..
everything was 50% off. :):)
I found this pie plate..nice and heavy.
And also I found this one...both half price..but they were $5.00 each.
I think..I prefer garage sales..so..
...on the way home..I spotted a garage sale. YES. They were having it under tarps! IN THE POURING RAIN! Well..they were no crazier than we were. I mean we WERE there! :):)
Right away I found this darling little clay bunny. You can't see it but the clay shows through here and there and it's darling. Easter IS coming you know...
Price? $1.00! Now..that's what I'm talkin' about!!
(I think that is one of my cookie crumbs on his ear....oh well.)
Story time.. :)
However...everything comes at a price. The "yard sale" was at a school...in their parking lot..so we drove in...and the rain was pouring..
I jumped out of the car and ran for cover. I immediately spotted the little bunny. He was adorable..so
I paid..and stepped out from under the blue tarp just as a big gust of wind flipped the tarp dumping water and darn near drowned me! It was icy cold and I gasped as it hit my head! I was drenched! You know how when something like that happens..and you look around to see if anyone saw?? I have no idea because I ran for the car and when I jumped in "Patient Husband" said "What happened??! Did they try to drown you or something?!" Oh, HA HA HA!! Very funny! I dried off with kleenex. KLEENEX!! Try that sometime.
I took the whole thing as a sign that it was time to head home.... Oh...and by the way...at the Estate Sale? Sweet neighbor walked up to me a few minutes after I arrived! LOL
S'ok. She loves me and I'm sure it was a coincidence this time!
Love and hugs,
