Yep--that is my Little sister---she reads about a yard sale and she is off----
Today we had to go uptown for her to pick up something she had put on layaway at the country shop--on the way she wanted to see for "sure" where #119 was --as they were advertising a yard sale for tomorrow--when we found the house the girl already was setting it up and you could shop--
And here she is with "OUR" purchases----
She even had to go back to the apartment to get the cart---
I want that two tiered basket and holder she got for $1.00---
and she found the old sewing stool--that "baby" was heavy--for $2.00
I found the little tiered plant stand for 50 cents--and 
In the bag is 6 new tops---most of them are "Talbots" cotton knit tops--$1.00 each--
some are like new--if not all--but they are alittle perfumy---so I need to do some laundry--it will take 2-3 washings to get it all out--so----
I did get two more bom's finished---Yea--for me!!!
Snowbound for April is done--

Gifts of the Spirit is finished--and I got out of my normal colors and used some peach in this one with the pink---different for me!!!!
I only have two more bom's to do--well--only one I actually consider a bom--and that is Bouquet by Jenny--I have it started ( a little)---and then the first friday freebie and that is also started!!!!
And the quilting on the Sunday Best is coming along--so---
let's take a day off tomorrow and "party"!!!!!

This is a tree that we seen on the way home--it is loaded with buds--have to remember to go back in about two days and check it out!!

A man goes to his doctor and hands him a note that says "I can't talk!
Please help me!"
Okay, says the doctor. "put your thumb on the table"
the man doesn't understand how that will help, but he does what he's told.
the docotor picks up a huge book and drops it on the man's thumb.
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" the man yells.
"Good", says the doctor--"come back tomorrow and we'll work on B".

  6. Congrats on the great deals! I never find anything at yard sales. I think it takes a special talent (and perhaps getting out of bed before nine on a Saturday).
