So....have I kept you wondering what the treasure was that I found at my moms house that I just couldn't part with? I'll give you a hint...It's not this Washington Post Edition.....although I found it in the bottom of this trunk and I couldn't throw it away....
My mom had this little strainer on her kitchen window sill......I know it was purchased only for it's "cute factor" because she wasn't a tea drinker and I think thats what this was used for...to strain tea?
And finally, the ONE THING that I actually had to pry out of a grown woman's' hands.......and had to LIE to her face that my sister had been searching everywhere for this ONE ITEM (not true...we didn't know it existed)
a huge pottery crock with a crown on it! I knew if I let her get to the driveway someone would have sold it for "two bucks" so I had to politely say, "I'm so sorry, that is not for sale!" ------(beautiful flowers from my TERRIFIC son and daughter....along with lots of fancy expensive makeup that I would NEVER buy for myself!)
We did have a bunch of "free stuff" too, including a handmade afghan that made a sweet little old lady so very happy that it was FREE!
We made way more than we expected to at the yard sale in this small little rural town, but it really was a lot of work before and after! Now the house is cleaned out and ready for it's new owners (fingers crossed for settlement!)
Thank you all for the sweet comments about the pillows I've been making. They will be listed in my Etsy shop soon if you would like to purchase one. Anyone out there want to volunteer to add an etsy link to my blog? I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it! I have no idea how I got the "ebay" one up there so long ago!
Thanks again for stopping by my little humble corner of the world!
