Garage Sale Babes




We are still learning how to take pictures of ourselves....my arm moved. Today was garage sale day, in honor of raising money for our annual winter Ya Ya beach trip.





Snack Time....sweet mint-pesto brownies made by Cindy, they were a surprise to my taste buds as the following photos declare.









Me thinks they taste weird.



Cindy wearing Yvonne's Grandmothers antique apron/bonnet.



Can someone please count the loot?



It was a historic day, junk=cash! The Ya Yas and I decided to pool our junk and see what kind of cash we could generate. It was a pleasant day of people watching and girlfriend chatting, lightly sprinkled with good food and warm, strong, coffee. I do enjoy watching what people are hunting for, what people buy and what people are willing to chat with strangers about as they shop for trinkets.



My favorite customer was Jo-Bob, a 10 year old neighbor boy who had 9 dollars to spend and spent 1.5 hours to do so....one item at a time. He would pay for an item, put it in his bag and then go shop for the next item he wanted. He painstakingly put effort and heart into every item consideration and final choice. His finale selection was a doll for his sister that was priced 3 dollars higher than than the 2 dollars he had left in his hand. How could I resist such a purchase?....I let the price lower to his budget.


After my fellow garage sale buddies left I spent several hours with my trusty DVR viewing the other historic events of the day along with the Project Runway episode I have been saving. Oh my gosh...that show needs to be my next blog topic...it Rocks!

Project Runway *totally rocks*! Daughter and I watch it together--good girl times : ) I'm not all that impressed with most of the designers this season--so much dreck! But there are a few jewels.
