Memorial Day 2010 Some Serious Catching Up

Memorial day found us at the beach staying with some friends, on our agenda was some serious garage selling and a big 60th birthday celebration for Roger. We have made it a tradition to go to the beach this weekend so that we can hit the garage sales, I am the one at wheel, Lola in the front and the guys in the back. The guys did not score so much this year, but us girls did pretty good. We have lots of memories of our garage selling with lots of laughs, I will just say backing into a stop sign was a highlight, with my heavy car no damage, and lucky for me a city worker came out of his home and put the sign back up, telling us that they don't put them in the ground very deep anyway. Whew!
After garage selling all day, it is nice to come back home to the beach house and just cool it.My friend Lola and I always have to have some to work on, so what better time to work on some hand sewing.
Roger gets to enjoy the coziness of this quilt after the binding was finished.
I really hit the jack pot here I bought five different seltzer bottles from a dealer at a garage sale, it always amazes me when I get exposed to something it just snow balls, they just seem to present themselves to me all over the place. I had already bought two seltzer bottles earlier this year at lot higher cost, so this was a bonus. I also found lots of little smalls too.
I found two crinolines, I could not pass them up one was white and one was yellow, you don't want to know how much I paid, almost free!
Happy Fathers day to this Papa Roger, a new generation of little ones to enjoy and carry on the love of reading. Happy Fathers Day to my dad. Love you lots. More posts to come, I have gotten myself behind. I have Farm Chicks and a great visit to Montana to share.


  1. Wow, you did really well out there, you scored big time! Love all your finds!
    What fun reading to little children. I have many fond memories of reading to my son when he was just a little guy.

  2. Dang, how did I miss those seltzer bottles!!!!
    Hope you have a great week!!!
    Hugs Julie
