See the cluttery mess! This is why I hate garage sales! I'm planning on getting stuff packed and ready to go this weekend and get it off my porch. The sale is next weekend. It will be a good one with 3 of us selling at it. ~Have a great 3 day weekend friends!~ ~Earlene~

Happy Hump Day

I hope your day was good...mine was. I wanted to share a picture of my new Fall wreaths I found for my barn door. I stuck purple asters in them..not blooming yet but they should look really pretty. She called them teardrop wreath and have sold like crazy and I can see why. What do you think? Probably would look better a little bigger...maybe I should move them somewhere else. ~`Have a wonderful evening~~ Earlene

Last Monday of August and I took a vacation day. Yippee

Time to get caught up on some things during the week so I took today off. Banking, shipping, all that stuff you can't get done on the weekends. I want to start getting ready too for a garage sale I will be in on September 8th. I hate marking things but I have to get a start on it.
I want to unpack all my Fall and get rid of some of it too, so perfect time to take to the sale on the 8th. ~~Enjoy your Monday~~ Earlene

Happy Hump Day/Painted Desk

Today was dandy! How was your day? I wanted to stop in and show you what my school desk looks like black.
And tonight after work I picked some tomatoes in my garden. The green tomatoes stay green...can you see the stripes? They are called Zebra tomatoes and very very good. I have been taking them for luch every day. I like to sprinkle a packet of Splenda on them . Not very big but big on flavor. I found them at Lowes this Spring.
I managed to set some gourds on my dough bowl for Fall and thats it. I just can't give up Summer yet. This week has been beautiful.
i can't wait to read your comments. blogging is so much fun. ~~Hugs~~ ~~Earlene~~

Saturday Estate Sale Goodies

What a beautiful cool sunny morning here today. I can't believe I slept 11 hours but did have lots of energy this morning. My sister called and said she would pick me up at 1:30 to go to some garage sales and I didn't even realize it but an estate sale was going on right down the street. The women who lived here was the sweetest lady, she passed away 2 years ago (?) at the age of 107. We went to her 100th birthday party. We went to her estate sale first and this is what bought.
Prim black Table, 2 old cutting boards anf Old Gray Speckeled Granite Coffee Pot. Now I will show you the smalls that I carried in the coffee pot...all for 1.00 a piece.
This 5 Gallon Crock was very nice. One of those purchases that your not sure about cause you have to think about it, then you kick yourself cause it's gone by the time you decide. Well we drove away in the van and got down the road and I told my sister to turn around, I want to go buy it. I think 95.00 was a good price, but didn't really want to spend that much but couldn't pass it up. What do you think?
These 3 treasures my sister bought. Very old kerosene lamp, old bootjack and picture painted on ild wood...all very cool!
Another view of Sharons awsome lamp.
This old desk I found last weekend at OLD US 12 yard sales. I am painting it a black milk paint. It will be for sale if your interested. 25.00... very sturdy. I am joining in at a garage sale at my friends on Saturday September 8th and it will be there. Webberville Mi. 5:15 already! Time to start dinner. Hope your enjoying your Saturday! ~~Earlene~~ Oh and for a good laugh go check out Carmens blog PRIMCATS post today. Click on my sidebar of her blog and it will take you there. VERY Cute!

Almost a week since I posted...geez that went by fast. Anyway this is a short post to show you what my husband does to me to drive me crazy and I know he sits and waits to see when I will notice. Ha Ha and it works every time. Fruit of your choice...banana peels, oranges, apples, watermelon rinds, etc! Oh well the bees like it. Oh and we can't forget the stickers that come on the fruit. Sticks them all over the leaves on the bushes. ~~Have a good night friends~~ Earlene

We were up bright and early this morning to meet my daughters and grandkids in East Lansing at MSU for the annual JDRF Walk for the Cure. We got there at 8:30 and the walk started at 9:30. You could do 1 mile or 3 miles. We did thw 1 mile since it was already 83 degrees. Lots of events going on...Rachel and Lauren did the rock climbing.
This is Rachel and it was her day. JDRF stands for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. She has Type 1 and takes 4 shots a day. WE LEFT AT NOON AND WE ALL HEADED TO CRACKER BARREL FOR BREAKFAST/LUNCH AND HAD A TERRIFIC MORNING. Have a great day blog friends. ~Earlene~

Prim desk my husband got for me (free)

Didn't he do good!!!! And a red favorite color to decorate with. I had to move my grain bin since this desk is pretty big but I love it. I need to put Brie Wax on it when I have the time. I can't bring it in the house because it does smell so the porch is the best spot for it. HAPPY THURSDAY FRIENDS< ~Earlene~
