I slept in a while this morning, and just as I was finished getting dressed, I heard my front door open. Wes and Andrew spent the night in Seattle, which is our norm for when someone is flying, and I knew his flight had left about 6:00 this morning. Wes usually calls me when he gets back inside Canada, though, just to let me know they let him back in, and he hadn't done that. So when I heard the door opening, my instincts knew it was Wes, but my mind didn't listen! LOL Of course, it was Wes. He was home by 9:00. He said Andrew seemed to be fine when he left, so that's a good thing. We are waiting now for the
I got an itch to go yard-saling this morning, so after I got my breakfast and talked to Wes a bit I took off across our little town to see what I could find. I have to tell you how yard sales differ here than in the US. First of all, they start about 9:00, at the earliest, and they end around 1:00. So if you're going to go, you can get a later start, but you better not poke around or you'll miss 'em all. The good thing about that is you start finding folks willing to strike deals around noon. Another difference, from my experience at least, is that hardly anyone puts a price on anything; you have to ask how much things cost. I like to browse and see what they have and how much things cost, so it's not my favorite thing to have to ask how much constantly. But I worked through it, obviously! ;) Here's what I got today, and I'm tickled pink with all of it.
This is a set from Home Interiors that was still wrapped in its packaging in the box. I love it! It's going in our bedroom because it matches our bedding so well.
Frames! I have loved those tall standing frames since the first time I ever saw one. Today I found this one for $2.00. The smaller frame is very rustic and country-looking. I'm not sure where I'll use it, but I loved it too. I'm thinking about cross-stitching some things to go in, but when I told Wes I'd like to do that, he just laughed. Now why would he do that? It wouldn't have something to do with an eagle I've been stitching for 10 years, would it?
