Yard Sales



We went searching for farm stands selling rapsberries and Ranier cherries - and found some great yard sales. Found Raniers too and bought a big bag full.

And then we found the yard sale to end all yard sales - it covered two yards and was splendid - and we did some major damage there . . .

A Thomas book for Ben - when you read the story it gives little pictures that match those on the right side and you push them and it makes a sound . . . very cute . . .

More books . . .

A really cute star shaped Santa for my collection . . .


A Sunbeam iron that actually gets hot, instead of tepid like the one I have . . .


A hand drill for Don . . .



Size 8 DMC - lovely beige color . . .


New - still wrapped in plastic in its box - dip set . . .

Some cute bears for the quilt shelf in the bedroom . . .

Another of these sets of toy bins for the toyroom - the other one is overflowing and it is hard to keep things sorted neatly. . . .


And a BeDazzler - cuz you know I likes me some dazzle!!!

WOW....you really hit paydirt there!!!! I am a yard-sale fanatic but this year I've not gone to any. I was starting to have trouble finding ROOM for the things I was buying and then I also have had a lot more work to do lately and can't seem to afford time to go on the Saturday-morning yard-sale outings. You did REALLY well!!!

What great finds. I wish I wish I was into yard sales, maybe I will have to make a point of hitting a few this summer!

Wow! You had a great day finding things, didn't you? BTW, what is the name of the solid fabric you bought?

Oh I am seriously jealous of your embroidery thread, ooh la la you lucky duck you! Gorgeous! I'll be waiting to see if you have in mind to add some bling to a quilt, that bedazzler is right up my alley too! ~Lili
