I really wanted to link up with Debbie Doos fantastic Garage Salen Partay, even though I don't have many things to share with you today. The past two weeks have been slim pickens at garage sales! I think it may be the combination of the holiday, and the steamy hot weather we've been having! Anyway, what few sales I have been able to find these past two weeks either don't have much that I really need (or want!), or else they are just one big junk fest! And I mean junk! I was at a huge sale the other day that I'd seen advertised, and was very excited about. Well, I get there and while it was huge, it was like a "junk-o-rama"! Stuff piled haphazardly, and most everything didn't even have prices on. So I left empty handed. Phooey!
I do want to share with you what I think will be my all time favorite find of the summer, that I picked up at a yard sale last weekend. The woman had beautiful things, lots of vintage goodies such as milk glass that I love. I had to force myself not to buy any, as I already have lots of it! Well, I have been wanting one of those plaster head/bust thingys forever, but the ones I have seen are way more money than I am willing to spend. I was so excited when I spied this little guy at her sale! Isn't he precious? There was no price on it, and I was almost afraid to ask her, thinking it surely would be expensive. I almost fell over when she said it was 50 cents! Yes! I could hardly believe my ears!
And since I don't have any more recent finds to show you, I thought I would share with you some gorgeous prints I found a year or so ago at a yard sale.
I have been busy packing our motor home today for a quick camping trip. We are leaving tonight as soon as hubby gets home from work. We are going to one of our favorite areas in northern Michigan, wine country! Yes, you heard me right! We have wonderful wine regions thru out Michigan, and the area we are going to has gorgeous wineries and tasting rooms that would rival any of those in Sonoma or Napa Valleys. Now, I am no wine snob, by any means! I shop at Trader Joe's for bargain wines! But one of my favorite things to do when we travel is visit wineries and do some wine tasting! Since hubby is the designated driver, I get my samples, and his! So I will be sure to share with you some pictures of our little getaway next week!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Keep cool!
