I always love a good yard sale, but I don’t always find good yard sales. Although I’m infatuated with junk, I don’t buy everything I like, because then I’d need to have my own sale. I actually set out with a plan and purpose, at least in my mind, and only purchase things that are on my imaginary list.
Some of these items include vintage sheets and pillow cases, old Christmas ornaments, ironstone, paintings, flower pots, and clothes. I’m always on the lookout for any of these items, but they must be in good condition and priced to sell. Needless to say, I often walk away empty-handed, but not this weekend.
I love this old topper!
There was a church participating in the yard sale and this box of ornaments belonged to the grandmother of the guy working the sale. As I was paying, I inquired about service times and he asked me if I was under eighteen, because they had a youth group.
When I told my mother and husband, they laughed in my face…not nice.
Speaking of age…
Today is my mother-in-law’s birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM
Count your life by smiles, not tears.
Count your age by friends, not years.

ps. Thank you all for your concern and kind notes. I am fine and the rash is quickly fading. I think everyone was right about it being an allergic reaction and not poison ivy/oak. I’m just glad it’s going away. This has been my best day yet!
