First sales of the season....

It's here, Garage Sale Season officially started for me yesterday! 

We had to go to my hubby's sister's place yesterday to pick up a hand me down desk for Maygan, it's a cute piece from the 40's that has been in the family for a long time.  Well, it just so happened it was yard sale days on that road.  Don't you love it when a plan comes together!

I didn't find much, but what I found was dirt cheap.  I got 3 old Bobbins for 25 cents each.  Two baskets for a nickel each, a couple of books for me and two for Maygan, quarter each...

The picture above shows my goodies, see the black basket with the lovely zebra bow, well, I looked past that and envisioned this.........

Bows & handle removed.........doesn't it look like a tobacco basket?  I still have to get rid of the gloss black paint, either by sanding it or maybe I'll borrow hubby's sandblasting cabinet.  I would like a natural, stained look.  Hope it works!

The rest of my day was spent outside, yes, outside!  Beautiful day here in PA, got the deck cleaned off and semi set-up for the warmer months.  And, I got my hands REAL dirty playing in my gardens, boy, did that feel good.

They are saying temps near 70 today but cloudy.  I'll take it!  Plan on grilling for supper today, marinated chicken and foil potatoes...

Blessings for a Peaceful Sunday to All,
