It was NOT my idea to go to garage sales this morning, but PH rolled me out of bed at the ungodly hour of 7:30! Yes, I am usually up earlier..(old folks get up early, because they want to get as much living in as they can...) I know. That wasn't a nice thing to say at all. But in my case, it's just plain true!
So..off we went by 8 a.m. with the sun already beating down on us..
Bless his little heart! I am glad he made ME get out of the house.
(I think he is sick and tired of me crankying all over the place!)
The first sale we stopped at had not a thing I would want...but then..the second one..and what cute things. Since it was already getting hot..I didn't spend a lot of time looking..
I thought this big planter with gorgeous rooster and hen on it..could not be passed up.
I really DO like it a lot. A real Ivy is going in it for the front porch..Fall is on the way..(yeah, sure!)
I paid $3.00 for it. It measures ten inches high and 12 inches across and is round.
Very heavy. A nice piece.
Now I wish I had bought more than just the two frames..but PH was already in the car..and it was getting HOTTER by the minute.
$1 for each frame.
Oops! Not a good picture of this frame..but it really is adorable.
Little Fairies adorn the edges of the frame.
..and you KNOW how I am about them there Fairies!
I also found a garage sale on the way home that had every toy that was ever made for a little boy. Most were way to big for our tiny toddler, Roman..but I did buy a few things for the Great Grandma's little toy box. I like to have toys him to play with while he is visiting. The Rubic's Cube?? Hey, the kid is a genius!!
NO idea WHY I bought the Rubic's Cube.! I loved the doggie necklace with the black chain..and the little airplance with propeller and wheels that turn beautifully. Had a few scratches on the wing..no matter. Roman won't care one bit! Besides, I have that color paint and I can touch it up a bit.
The little fish..well that was a keeper! You push the buttons and bubbles come flying out and you are suppose to put rings over...something...it's a game. Like I said...smart kid!
No..really ..he is! :)
I bet anything his daddy will play with it!
Hmmm...not sure who this little guy is but looks like someone from..???
soft rubber...really nice little necklace for a tiny boy.
Like brand new..probably is.
And of course the WHITE FOOTBALL!! Wha' the heck?!
I gave the little boy $2.00 for all the toys... :) He was thrilled! So was I!!
We got home before the really bad heat hit us...then visited with our son in law who came by for awhile.
I miss them living nearby.
And that was our Saturday. Nice. Really nice.
Now I am off to turn off the sprinklers!
Wanna come with me? No?
