Around The House And Then Some!
I have had a great weekend in my book. I got up at 6 am (too early for me but I couldn't sleep for wondering what I might be missing) and took off for church sales and yard sales yesterday. I found some good old pieces like Watt and FireKing (gee, I just now realized it would have made sense to have taken pictures of the stuff but that will have to be another time). I dropped off stuff to the auctioneer that I was telling you about before. It will just be interesting to watch the people bid (or not) and see if he can sell them next week. By the time I got home around 1:00 it was steaming hot and in the 90's. My husband helped me unload the goodies and my dining room table looked like a mini Goodwill. That part distresses me. The house was clean and I come in, tired, sweaty and bedraggled toting junk (treasures) that must be washed, priced, loaded in the car, driven to the shops, taken in the shops and put on shelves. I like most of the process but not the mess to my house and Lord, forgive me, my car. All my kids are grown now but they can tell you stories about never having a floor in the car to put their feet on because the floor was full of "treasures" that might be worth something. On vacations, I would ship stuff home so we would have wiggle room in the car. I have learned to call it what it is, an addiction but my ego knows it is much cheaper than therapy.
Here are some pictures I thought you might like from needlepoint to my husband's art work to alas the dining room table and boxes on the floor.
You may think I need therapy in addition to the shopping.
