Saturday's Garage Sale Day...started off windy, with thick fog over the hills but soon the wind died down and the sun came out...and so did the critters starting with the burrowing owls we love so much... Driving through the country side was so bucolic and peaceful...
This is fog rolling over the hills (not snow)
We were well received by all the animals...
Look at his one and think BEADS... All those necklaces I got from one guy who has a huge barn sale on going and he gives his stuff away for pennies. I kept finding more and that was another quarter (for a handful of necklaces and bracelets); sequins, a large roll of tulle, thin gold wire; paper tags; bags of never used letter and number stamps; and three lovely wood birds in flight that DH was sure would look nice on an art quilt one day.
these art sketch pads were never opened, and might be for grand kids and/or me, stickers, phone message book for work...$1 for all...
This I picked up for our 4 and a half year old grand daughter to play dress-up/bride...
She'll love it. Another good drawing pad with graph paper...was sure it would be good for something...
and never opened huge packet of photo paper for my HP printer...
Llama says hi.
but when he learned DH was a teacher he gave him a sharks tooth (fossil) in a glass covered wooden box and three
turquoise stones he had picked out to buy for free (they would have been $10). His helmet is from a museum. He buys many collector items and sells them very cheaply.
DH and he talked fossils for some time.
Here are my bead scores close up....
I did buy it for the beads, but who knows I may wear it as is for a while first.
Lots and lots of usable beads
Fossilized sharks tooth and turquoise stones
I saw them as dolls to cut off the surrounding cloth to use on art work pieces.
It was a fun day. We stopped for lattes and scones for lunch.
Were home by 1 PM with time for lots more creating.
Oh, I also saw tons and tons of cacti.
I have enough cacti photos to get me through the next three or more months of cactus Mondays.
Yes, Teri C. you may say you told me so~
Even DH was pointing them out~
