I had fun over the weekend going to a community garage sale. Now that I'm not in business any more, I don't buy half of what I used to--so I'm buying stuff that I need, or at least pretend I need. (Like the date bars and peanut butter cookies.)

Yardsaleloot The magazines were a steal at a nickel each, 3 new cat bowls, a make-up bag, doilies up the wa-zoo, Rubbermaid spatulas, a veggie brush, pumice stone. The Mary Engelbreit book was only 50 cents.

Why do I need a wedding guest book? I'm going to put something over the top and use it for another purpose where I want to collect names and addresses. These things are sooo expensive new, that I buy them whenever I find them. This one was only a dollar.

Cottage_barn_starWe also decided to get a barn star for the family cottage. It was a great price but the wrong color. Luckily, I had a can of Ivory Silk paint. Four coats later, and it looked good. I had to get on the ladder to hang it. That was a little scary--but I'm a brave woman. Now I'm wondering if it should be lower. What do you think? (See my beans on the left side of the picture!)
