Town-Wide Trash and Treasure

Today was our town-wide garage sale. It starts early (very early) and then fizzles at about noon. My mother-in-law and two sisters-in-law came and we made the rounds. We found a few things we couldn't live without, and probably a few things we should've lived without.

I found this great horse outfit for Zaya to wear. Boys need to play dress-up sometimes too, right? Mim got new dishes and food for her play kitchen, and she, her brother and her cousin had great fun dragging them all over the house. We won't keep all of the dishes and things I bought, but it was an all or nothing proposition, so instead of the "nothing" I should've taken, I took the "all". Oops.

Most importantly, my husband found something that I have been missing for over a year and a half. It was a piece of jewelry that was very important to me because of who it used to belong to, and I had lost it and thought I'd never see it again. I was so excited! Am so excited!

Nothin' much better than some new junk at great prices.

That's cool about the jewelry too.

Love the pics. Yep, boys love dress up too. In years past it was cowboy outfits and coonskin caps and such.

Too much fun! Glad to hear about the jewelry-you just never know how things will make their way back to you.

I love the horse too ... think of it as a donation to their good cause and recycling and saving stuff from landfill.

- What a champion Hubby to find that precious item!

I love the music on your blog.
