Let it Begin!

Garage sale season has arrived in Indiana!  This is one of my favorite times of year.  There’s just something about digging through other peoples trash to find a treasure, especially when you can get an amazing deal on it.  

Today was the first BIG sale around here.  I am excited to report I found lots of bargains and came home with money left over.  I’m also happy to report I managed to remember not to buy WeeMan any clothes  except one swim shirt and we’ll need that for the splash park this summer.(he has plenty and is set for summer otherwise).  I did find some clothes for me, yaay!  I also came home with several new CDs and a couple of movies.  But here is my favorite loot.Image Les Miserables 10 year anniversary CDs, the rest of the set of Muppet glasses from McD’s in the early 80s, a little red metal tool box, a great picture frame that will be getting a coat of either turquoise or yellow paint, and my favorite piece – a baby blue Zenith AM radio from 1959 in mint condition that actually works!  

A terrific open to the season I think!

Quarantine Day 2 and a Thrifty Christmas Wreath

On day 2 of our quarantine I was able to get quite a few projects done.  WeeMan helped me make blueberry muffins.  He loves to help cook (which is why he’s getting his own kitchen for Christmas – daddy and I just have to make it out of the microwave cart I bought at a garage sale)

Then during nap time I vegetated with HGTV and put together a wreath for the front door.  The best part is it was only $3.  I had almost everything on hand.

The only thing purchased for the project was a $3 L ornament I found on black Friday.  I simply wrapped a square grape vine wreath I had already with artificial pine swag – also on hand- and then added my L and a bow.  Not bad for $3!
