Not really yard sales that I attended this past Saturday, it was one gigantic sale
under one roof at a our 4-H Fair Grounds.
Just look at my goodies.  For one I bought a bag of vintage Jello molds, 34 in all, about 5
different styles, it also had two mini vintage cutters. Then on to another booth that
had oodles of fabric. Now , those that love to sew can relate. Oh my the pull was so
strong.  Have been good the past 1 1/2 yrs using up all of my "ginormous" supply
of fabrics mostly from my quilting shop junkets!  God has been so good to me in giving me the talent to sew, thus I make items for free, just because giftsn, and also donate to causes.
Look at the nice piece of homespun. Can never pass up on a deal of homespun !
Well, here comes this booth with all the fabrics.  Found some great neuturals, that
will help me to complete some projects. Second from left is a piece that looks like
bark on a tree. So neat.
Lastly, the pedstal milk glass grapes design I found at the Salvation army along
with the two white stoneware ramkins.
I have already made a white floral round display in the milk glass.  Love my whites !

Been out in yard scouting for the new birth of plants !  Low and behold I found
some.  My first pix is of my Gladiola bed and second is of the Daffodils.  I am a
lazy gardener, leaving a lot of the last foliage around perrienials to cover base,
and also some of my planst such as the different daisys make wonderful seed
food for the birds in the winter months.  This system has always worked best
for me, so it is fun to gently begin moving the debris aside and finding the new
My father always like Spring the best , stating it reminded him of the new birth
we receive from Jesus.  Or a reminder for us Christians what Christ has done for
us.  How true.  Wish he were alive in order to say, "how true."
The only drawback I feel when relishing Spring is knowing that the hot months
of Summer are just around the corner, ugh !   But once into Summer I can't wait
for Autumn, my other fav Season .
Happy Spring everyone !
