Garage Sale Goodies

Saturday my mom and I were on a mission: to find a dresser for Landon. Unfortunately, we didn't find one (at least not one that would work), but I did come home with a bunch of goodies, most of which are shown in the picture below.


Blue Hill had their annual city-wide garage sale day, so we started there before heading to Hastings where we hit a few sales including a 2-block long garage sale and an estate sale. Here's the low down on my loot:

Large beach mat (not shown) - $3
3 glass insulators - .75
4 small bushel baskets - $1
2 blue/green atlas jars - $1
2 blue/green Ball jars - $1
Old Chicken Feeder (not shown) - .50
Old Chicken Waterer (not shown) - .50
Vintage (1948) "Red Book of Trees" - .10
Vintage (1948) "Blue Book of Trees" - .10
2 Vintage feed sacks - .50
Vintage crib sized quilted blanket with hand appliqued butterflies - $1

Total Spent: $9.45

In other news...my uncle is currently in Germany visiting his exchange students from the last couple of years (he's a host). He emailed me this morning to see how we made it through the storm. Apparently the tornado north of town made international news! It sounds like it flipped over a couple of pivots, but not much else.

And, just to toot my own horn, one of my photos (the first one in the post below) made "Picture of the Day" on one of our local news stations! According to Landon, I'm "awesomer than awesome"!
