I forgot about the tinker toys. They came from an estate sale. Not sure why I picked them up, probably because I like the way the can looks.
This is all for now, but there is plenty more to come if I ever find the time. Sometimes I feel a little overwhelmed.

After 2 or 3 days of rain, it looks like the weekend is going to be nice with sunshine and temps in the 70's. Soooo, I will be speed picking some yard sales tomorrow morning before I go to work at 9:30. Hate to do that. Who knows what I'll miss. Saturday will be better. There is an auction in a small town about 10 miles down the road with a couple of Good Ole Boy auctioneers. Those Good Ole Boys are pretty agreeable and easy to get along with, so we'll see what happens. Haven't been to an auction for a couple of weeks and I'm looking forward to it. I'm putting out those positive vibes. Hopefully, I'll come away with some good stuff to share. Have a great weekend and I'll be back soon!

This last weekend I went to an auction.....it was a marathon. Arrived at 8:30 A.M. and didn't get home until about 7:30 P.M. What a day! Didn't get everything I wanted, but I was running out of money especially after winning a good lot of jadeite glassware. I paid more than I wanted to, but I was not going to quit. I waited all day for it and wasn't going home without it. Auctions can really get me in trouble. As soon as they're over, I start worrying about getting my money back plus more (damned buyer's remorse) gets to me every time. It all seems to work out in the end. I did get a real nice 4 piece set of marbled beige Samsonite luggage. All of it is in great condition and it was a real good deal. Looks like it was hardly used. I will post some pictures in a day or two. Too many other things to do....estate sales, yard sales....you know what I mean.
