I love garage sales!

I stopped by at a subdivision sale yesterday. Subdivision sales are even better than garage sales, because you can just park and walk to many homes to see what goodies they're getting rid of! Many treasures are waiting to be discovered!


I picked up some awesome lace at one house. I can't wait to use this on some cards! Fun stuff! This same house also had great Disney items, and I got my oldest a brand new Mickey shirt and an Eeyore sweatshirt with matching sweatpants.


Then another house had these Creative Memories paper packs. They're 4"x6", and they come in a cool little case. She had them marked $3 each, but I got two for $5.


This one is Storybox Gazebo. I love the colors. They're all double-sided, and they are 96 pieces. I checked on eBay, and these are pretty expensive! Score!


This one is Storybox Chalet, and it has a much softer color palette. I might have to use these with some lace!

I also got my oldest some shirts at another house. This lady must have been a shopaholic or something, because she had tons of shirts for 50 cents each, and they looked brand new! I washed them all, and Emily even wore one to school today. You gotta love a great bargain!

I need to make my mom's Mother's Day card today. I'm happy to say that I cut the grass yesterday. I hate cutting the grass! It's exhausting! Anyway, it's done for the week, thank goodness. My husband has been out of town all week, and he'll be home tonight. Since I dropped him off at the airport on Tuesday, the girls and I will be picking him up from the airport tonight. When we get home, I plan on collapsing on the couch! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!!

WOW, WHAT BARGAINS..!! It is so exciting to run across stuff. My Uncle always says "someone else's cast offs is someone else's treasures" and isn't that the truth. My biggest delight and sad at the same time was when my friend Carol had to close her absolutely delightful Rubber Stamp Shop and we got incredible bargains. But nothing like when she was moving out of state 2 years later and she brought me box after box after box of goodies that I was given the most wonderful prices to pay. I came home dancing but had to completely reorganize and rearrange 2 rooms to fit it all.
