When I saw one of "those" dreaded Signs! "Garage Sale!" With a "fresh fifty Bucks in my wallet, I followed, don't hate me, I'm not very focused! I didn't find a lot there, but I did find a few treasures,,,,,
This fun little Tool trunk,,,,$2 Bucks,,,,and English Creamer,,,,,and a stack of molds,,,,a Quarter Each! I also found a GREAT shelf/divider for 2 Bucks,,,,although I paid them $10 so they'd deliver it. It's sitting out in my front yard as we speak and it'll be AWESOME in the Studio......It's simple cubbies, really, but will be great for Paper Storage.
Since I didn't find much today, I also threw in ONE of the Two Gumball/Candy Machines I found a couple of weeks ago at the Craven Sale.........I took them both apart this week and spray painted the bases Pink.........Right after I cleaned out all the old melted, sticky Skittles, (ick) and M&M's........
That new Rustoleum Spray Paint is Awesome!!!
They'll both be headed down to the Studio soon,,,,,,,,,
I also found this old Clothes Hamper for a $1.00,,,,,
It's gonna need a SERIOUS cleaning and a good coat of Paint!
And, final shopping stop on the way home this morning, back to my House/Studio, I stopped at the former, "Salvadelena's" Nursery. Clarice, my boss/friend at Joyworks said they had some great hanging baskets, for $10.........so thought I'd check it out.
And I found this one,,,,,,,,,,Love it!
$10 Bucks? This may be the bargain of the day! Love the Colors!
As you may or may not know, I'm an Avid Reader. I read various genres, and after buying a Kindle several years back, I read more than ever. Fiction, History, Mysteries, Biographies, you name it.......
And last nite? Or should I say, very early this morning, I was wide awake and picked up my Kindle and perused the "Freebies." They always have 100 or so books that you can download now for free, including many pieces of classic literature.......and I started reading Victor Hugo's "Les Miserables." And although I loved, love love the Musical, the book is divine. I'd highly recommend it! This book is spriritual, cerebral, inspirational, cultural and historic. It's as savory as a good bagette, a chunk of Brie, and a glass of wine.........
By the way, If you haven't yet entered my Giveaway, (Post Below) You've got about 24 hours before I draw names. You can leave a comment either on my Blog,,,,,,or on Facebook! I'll be giving away two custom necklaces......Your choice of Colors!
