Garage Sale Season and Glasses

I’m not normally a big garage sale person but this year, for some unknown reason, I’ve decided that maybe if I spend the time to look there might be some treasure that I just can’t live without.

Last weekend I went out on a whim to scour the neighborhood that my in-laws live in since they were having the subdivision sale event. I found a little papazon chair for Grace to use when she’s hanging out in the basement with me. My big purchase for that day - $2.

On the way home from work yesterday I pass a house that always has driveway sales. A very large shelving unit caught my eye, so I made a u-turn and headed back. The shelves are perfect for all my projects and plastic containers.

I have a few projects to finish

Our subdivision is having the annual garage sale event on the 8th, 9th & 10th. At first I didn’t think I would participate, but as usual changed my mind. I’m going to go through some of my stash and see if there’s anything I can part with. I keep telling myself – parting is such sweet sorrow, but then there can be a trip to the store. My organizing and parting projects have created these 2 pictures. I have my work cut out for me this weekend.

There is a table under there somewhere.

Cutting table, I can't find it. Oh brother.
And the last topic - Glasses. Grace was blessed with bad eyesight. I keep thinking, genetics really stink. The pediatric opthamologist said she is very farsighted and halfed the prescription because it's so strong. We go back for another visit in December. Had to share this funny picture of here at the eye doctors office with Miss Liz.
