Sorry- no pictures today. I have been out the past couple days thrifting, visiting other people’s yards and garages and barns and sheds and a few churchs. Besides interesting plunder and some great books I was treated to good conversation and a wonderful bakery that brought back childhood memories. Nope, no pictures of that either, it was yummy and gone fast.
How did I find out there was a National Garage Sale Day?
Thank you Ms. Selena from Apron Thrift Girl who holds a fun Monday Meme Thrift Share that I would love for all of you to join. Don’t wait until Monday, please hop over to ATG now and read her post about National Garage Sale Day. She has a delightful and practical gift for you there.
I promise there will be pictures after I finish unloading the van and sorting out my treasure. Prepare to be amazed (at what I will drag home.)
I am linking this post up to Frugalicious Friday at Finding Fabulous where she has a post with details on another thrifty source – senior living centers.
Please go read it yourself.
Since this post is short I have room to send a shout out to all my classmates from high school. I did visit with some of you at the pre reunion bar thing Friday night. Still trying to get my hearing and voice back.
And to all my readers, if you have a favorite recipe from your childhood and want to send me a link, maybe with a brief story of your memories, I’d love to read it.
Anouncement: There is a party going on at Under the Table and a prize for linking up to her Sunday Showcase so go add your project.
Happpy To Design offers you a chance to repost one of your favorite posts on Sunday, and since I am reblogging ATG’s information, this is sort of a repost.
Kuzak’s Closet has a contest for you and an opportunity to share favorite things in your life.
I heart naptime has a contest for you today as well. Link up your project or just visit and see great things made by others and become inspired.
