Welcome to my blog about yard sales, crochet, my family and my life. A yard sale map in one hand and a crochet hook in the other.

Right place, right time

When it comes to finding bargains and sales, Pam and Janet have me beat. I always seem to be in the wrong place and miss out. But not this week! I visited Michael's again and stocked up on the $1.99 yarn sale...............

 I can't show you what I'm doing with all of this lusciousness until after Christmas.
This morning while grocery shopping at Walmart, I barely heard an announcement of some sale in electronics. I continued on until I was almost through before I went to see what was on sale. TV's for $115! All sizes from 60" and smaller! I got in line with five people in front of me. The lady in front of me decided to get out of line and I was glad she did. Because she left, I was able to get the last 42" TV for $115! This is going in my bedroom where I sit and crochet!

Happy dance!

Saturday News

A whole week since my last post! It's cold here in SC just like everywhere else. At least we aren't getting snow yet and it's hasn't dipped much lower than 30 degrees!
Thursday Janet, Pam and I went to our annual trip to the Southern Christmas Show in Charlotte. Pam bought more than Janet and I, but we had a great time.

Speaking of Christmas, Holly sent me this picture of Della and Maxel visiting Santa.....
..............and Miss Priss got her ears pierced!
Justin and the boys have been working on the '46 Chevy...........

Janet and I went shopping yesterday since it was too cold for yard sales. Look at the luscious yarn I got at Michael's for $1.99 each!

 I have a few plans for these beauties. Speaking of crochet, I'm almost finished with Sloan's blanket. I should finish today and will post pictures tomorrow.
Uno, the lab, had a visit to the vet Friday to get "fixed". Because it was so cold, we let him stay in the laundry room Friday night. Considering he's so hyper, he was very good and let us sleep.

 The protective cone didn't last too long after he was back outside! 
Justin's birthday is Wednesday and we went with Janet and Rodney to the Texas Roadhouse to celebrate.
 Rodney let the staff know it was Justin's birthday and it was on from there! They brought out the "saddle" and after a lot of coaxing, we finally got Justin to 'take a ride'! He told me this better not be put on Facebook, but I never promised it wouldn't go on my blog! :-)
Have a great weekend and stay warm!

Saturday News

This post will be loaded with pictures, so get ready! Janet and I had a late start Saturday morning because it was so cold! But we did hit a few yard sales and this is what I found.....
............a Saints hat for Sloan $15.......hated to pay that much but it was clean and fairly new...
 .......a cast iron baboon $2.....................
 .......two brand new stadium seats for $10 each...............
Janet bought this for me 75 cents.................
Looks like Christmas, doesn't it? We hit an estate sale that was in a house. I would have loved to have met this lady because it was very obvious she was a crafter and a quilter...........

 I went crazy and spent $75 here!!! This lady had any type and color of fabric you could want!

Justin, Sloan, and Rodney took two junked vehicles to the scrap yard and then brought home this.............a '46 Chevrolet!
 They had to stop at the car wash because it was covered in dirt and pine needles!

 Xander helps Sloan unload tires..............

Then we all got cleaned up and went bowling! Well, we bowled a little, but let Xander do most of the bowling!
 This little two-year-old was carrying these heavy bowling balls! It was all I could do to lift one!

After the game was over, the "kids" hit the video games..........

Leave it to Rodney to keep us laughing.......

What a fun-filled day!
