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.

Do the Snoopy Happy dance!

WooHoo! Finally yard sales are starting!!

Jump for joy!! The first one we (Micki and the boys) went to this morning was a church yard sale. I found  a mixer for $5. There were a couple newer models, but this one was the only one with a bowl and it's the kind my mother used to use, so I knew it was a good one.

Bought three books...

I need to start reading some of these books, but I love my crochet! Here is my latest doily..

Sloan found this beautiful 'young' lady for me ...

The girls are going south!! :-)  I found this framed doily also..

Sloan also found this trinket box. Isn't it darling?

He really did good at one yard sale. The lady told him to fill a bag with toys for 25 cents a bag! He filled two bags!!

The best find was for Micki. I found this Disney Snow White globe-thingy. It has the evil queen talking to the magic mirror. It actually has sound and recites the "Mirror, mirror on the wall' scene. It was marked $20 but the lady said she would take $15. I told Micki I would buy it for her birthday.

Look at the price on the sticker that was on the bottom!! Score!

It's a beautiful day here in SC. I'm going to try to see the "Super Moon" tonight. Hope you have a great weekend!

Wow, that was quite a haul! I was looking around for garage sale signs today on my way home from a little antique shop, but I didn't see any. It was such a beautiful day, I figured there would be quite a few.

Your doily is so pretty, as usual.

Love that mixer! We have several older one's and love them. I buy books and tell myself no more until I read them and then I can't resist and buy more...so my TBR pile is huge. Thanks for joining JFF!! hugs, Linda

I want to go garage-sale-ing with you! I love the framed doily but it doesn't hold a candle to the ones that you crochet. You made a great haul!
