GarAgE SaLe and CrITTeRs...

Its a beautiful morning here in least where I live..I can hear the birds singing..never tire of that..On my way home from church yesterday just 8 houses from where I live they were having a garage I stopped to see what I could find..probably the best garage sale (only because of the bargains that I picked up)..the guy was selling off his grandmas things and was giving it away practically..I got these 2 sherbet cup..all had price tags of $5.00 each...not what I paid..
going to prim this up..:)
just love the colors on the plate..will have to hang this in the dining room..;)
look at this wonderful silverware..will be going through my old cheap stuff and getting rid of it..
a thing to hang under a cabinet to hang your cups on..might just go in my craft room to hang stuff on it..maybe a little drying rack when I am painting..Okay now do you want to know what I paid for all of this..I couldn't believe it when I was adding up all of there were price tags on all of came to $75.00 for all of this...I paid...(drum roll)......$5.00 for the whole thing..:) I cleaned up..its all I had in my wallet and he was giving it to me for $4.00..but i picked up the thing above and he gave me more he got the extra dollar..;) SWEET!!!!!..
Yesterday as I was putting the outdoor kids in the garage for the night..I heard some fluttering towards the window and knew it was a bird..not sure how he got in..but thinking way of a cats mouth..(hate it when they do this) know its nature and all..I just don't like having to clean up their with cats know what I am speaking I moved everything to get to a bucket and he went him outside and put water down for him..and there was left over food on the stump from earlier..he was exhausted...I kept a watch on him for about 15 minutes then noticed him turn over on his tummy and he took his last breaths..I petted him till he passed away..Just broke my heart..he seemed I took him in my hands and buried him...I truly thought he would be fine..(this is the part I hate having to clean up of my kittys messes)...
on a lighter note..this is what I found in my mailbox feeder...this little guy looked like he was having so much fun in it..the flash didn't work with the zoom lense though..but they are so goofy and I love watching these guys..
I hope your day is off to a great start...I am going to mow the lawn today and that is it for yard work..gotta get some orders done as well..been putting them off for way too long..and gotta start getting some stuff done for a show next month..take care and I hope your day is off and running.;)


  1. Hi Gina,
    Love your yardsale finds! WOW!!! Just wanted to let you know your goodies arrived on Saturday. THANKS, I just love the bib and the other items you sent. Hubby ooohed and ahhhed about the little dishtown with the embroidered kitty on it and now I have to make a kitty for the little kitty sweater you made! Sorry to be late in thanking you but work is very hectic right now and I don't have much time to myself! Hugs, Laurie

  2. Wow!! You got the bargains darlin'! YaY you!!
    I'm so sorry to read about the poor birdie.
    Did you know that is the reason why I won't own a kitty? I would not be able to handle their predatory instincts.
    Heck, I've even found myself freein' a fly from a spider's web. Yeah, I know. Weird. I can't help it.
    Thanks for showin' the squirrel pic. It made me smile. :> )

  3. Wow did you ever hit it big on that yard sale! Lucky girl! So sad about the little birdie =(

  4. What great finds for $5!!! Gotta love getting a good deal Sorry about the bird...I know the kind of messes cats make.

  5. Hi Gina,
    I just spent the last 20 minutes catching up on your blog. I am so grateful to you for taking the time to do this for those of us who LOVE your creativity, projects, collections, activities, and sense of humor! You are a living doll. Maybe I can go to the cannery with you next time. I really love the sherbet bowls you found yesterday. You really did score! It's such a rush when that happens. I love you, dearie. xoxo

  6. Wow - did you clean up at the sale or what?!?!! That was a SCORE if ever there was one!!!

    But speaking of clean up....I apologize for whoever it was that killed the little bird. I have learned NOT to do harm to the little birds. Purrhaps this cat should call me so I can teach him about the difference between good and bad kitty.

    Good kitties get lots of milk and snacks. Bad kitties get coal. See how straight forward that is?

    Purrs to you for a better day with GOOD kitties!


  7. Great garage sale finds!!
    Sorry to hear about the little bird. I used to have kitties, so I know what you mean about cleaning up their messes.
    I emailed you back earlier...hope you got it as it has been stormy here today and not sure if it went through. The power keeps flicking off and on.
    Have a great week.

  8. What a great people on the west coast find the best stuff and now I know where I would like to visit on vacation...I just posted about some messes that Lab pups can do so I know about the pet messes.
    There are NO sales like that here :(
    Sorry to hear about the birdie

  9. You found a lot of great stuff at the yard sale! I really like the pink and green cups in the first picture!

    I hope you have a wonderful week!


  10. Too cute of the pics with the bird and squirrel. That was so funny with the squirrel. Too adorable.

    Ya, you definitely cleaned up on the sales..WOW...what bargains....I was unable to share my yard sale haul video on the weekend. Too forever to upload a three minute video (like three flipping hours,grrrrrr), than processing with You Tube took all night and when I woke up in the morning it stated there was an error..another grrrrrrrrrrr..So I have to do it all over again..waiting till I have more patience to upload it..
    Blessings. Sorry I haven't been around much these days,,,please I've been stopping by just not commenting..
