There were so many garage sales..that at times we just parked the car and walked.
However..there was very little I found that I wanted or needed.
Here are a couple of things..
This little guy sat on a perch right in front of my living room window this morning. Didn't move.
An half hour..no movement. PH came to peek and said "is he breathing?" I answered "dunno.."
another twenty minutes..and finally I couldn't stand it..and opened the screen door.
Walked right up to him..and ZOOM he was gone. :) What a nice start to our day!
After about four garage sales and nothing..following my visit to the sweet little cottage, I found these.
They are Corning's French White stoneware. Not a flea bite..gorgeous..and..
...there were three of them! Price? $2.00! Yes, two dollars for all three and the lid.
And books of course. I found four, one of which I already have, but this one, The Painted House is to loan out. Vivien Liegh has always interested me so I think I will enjoy this one. Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby is another I've wanted to read but have not come across in a garage sale. Three were paper backs which I seldom buy..but I really wanted these books. The Street Lawyer may be another one I give away. I think I have it too. No matter. For 25 cents each..it's a deal!
A Zuchini, a squash and another tomato plant..for a dollar...yes indeed. It's the beginning of my little big container garden on the patio. I promised not to plant anything else...except these! :)
We went out to breakfast (waffles) as I already told you, and right near the bakery is this little shop. Gardeners Cottage...so I took a stroll through while waiting for my waffles and Patient Husband read the morning paper...Yeah..it's the kind of neat place where you can do that and be totally comfy!
I wasn't really shopping..I mean not REALLY, but you know how it is when you suddenly see something and it just grabs you? Well, this tray did that.
I put my pretties on it and my pretty sort of disappeared ... I might add that I love trays! Handy things, trays.
Oh..and before I forget...
I also saw this lovely dragonfly. His wings are sort of sparkly and when you pull on him he bounces just like my li'l green frog.
As I said, I didn't find much at the garage sales, but seeing that little house with the perfect front yard, chatting at Patient Husband and directing his parking etc...just made for an all around fun day..waffles topping it all off.
Have a wonderful, fantastic tomorrow.. :)
