Darn. We had to miss all that fun.
So, well, anyway... we just went, instead, to (surprise, surprise) local yard sales. But you know? God placed such sweet things for us at those sales that I'm not going to complain. I'd rather just show you some pictures:
This adorable tiny bench was originally $5, but Tom talked them down to $3. I had to tease about how easy it is for him to get great deals, what with the way he goes walking into the sale with his two little canes and his pronounced limp, his 5' 3" frame and his sweet face. Only the tough cookies ever come back at him with a higher price. :)
Tom bought this for me for $2. And when I said I wasn't sure if I had room for it inside the house he said, "How about outside?" Great idea! Perfect for the side yard, as were these:
The (heavy!) sunflower dish was $2 and the adorable little bird bowl was just .25 cents. Here's a close-up so you can better see its cuteness:
So there you go. More cheap treasures, ones which will stay outside of the house and will most likely stay with the house/yard when we move away someday. Really, I've got this thing about clutter, as in, not wanting to move away with any next time. :)
