SO MUCH STUFF

& a bunch of shabby chic home stuff
& a snack booth
(to keep up your energy while you're looking for treasures:)

it is a find & a half
& if you like any of the things i mentioned

okay...so i don't mind driving, but i suppose indiana might be too far to go for this particular garage sale...but man, i wish i was closer...this sounds GREAT! i am a garage-sale-aholic...combine that with snacks and scrapbook supplies and i might just spend the whole day there@!

happy birthday my wonderful friend!
thank you for bringing me flowers on the week of your birthday - your just like a hobbit (they give other people presents on their birtdays) and i am just like a nincompoop (they forget to say happy birthday when they see their closest friends at the store on their birthday).

Happy Birthday from your friend who remembers no one's birthdays so at least you can't take it personal! (: You are one of those great remember-ful people who remembers other people all the time! Hope to see you soon!

Yet again I have missed out on something important because I failed to keep up daily with your blog.... No, it wasn't your birthday; I sang you a happy tune and saw you at your party. But that GARAGE SALE!! If only I had known!!!
