Saturday was definitely the perfect day!  First of all, the weather was perfect.  No wind, a miracle in itself, sunny, and the temperature was warm but not too warm. 

Many of my perfect days are days where nothing is planned, everything just happens and falls perfectly into place. 

So…..that was Saturday.  I took the T-man home to his Mommy and she had already been hard at work, garage sale shopping all morning.  Heather and I headed out, intending to run errands but…… garage sale signs were calling out name.  We couldn’t help ourselves, the car just kept veering down all of those side streets all on its own.  Fortunately for me, I was dressed for the occasion!  Ha Ha!  You know, tee shirt, jeans, and flip flops!

Not just ANY jeans!  The perfect torn shabby jeans.  Authentically torn I may add!  None of those expensive perfectly ripped jeans from a chic boutique!  No no indeed!  I tore these in 2007 in the shadow of Mt. Rushmore  with everyone looking on when I tripped over absolutely NOTHING and fell flat on my face!  I feel like the embarrassment alone should make them priceless!  Not to mention the bloody skinned knee and the tears that came when Hubby did not express the proper amount of sympathy!

And don’t forget the polish on those toes!  It’s mandatory you know!  HaHa!  Soooo……I’m sure that my attire alone must mean that we are going to score lots of goodies!  Right?  WEll….it must be right because we scored BBIIIGG!

Vintage floral vases.  My little Frenchy looking guy with velvety pants and jacket.  When I got him home I looked at the bottom and he was marked 1905!  I paid a whooping $3.00!


The perfectly tacky and in perfect shape damask drapes.  Two botanical pictures.  Heather and I both love anything with a botanical theme.


A vintage table cloth.  Never used.  Vintage sheet set.  Vintage pillow cases.


A cute scarf and vintage covered jars.  And we only hit 3 sales. 


I had to take a pair of these corbels home.  I’ll probably use them as bookends somewhere.  They came off of a house that Heather’s boyfriend is remodeling so she got them mega cheap!  Of course the fact that they are all chippie only makes them more appealing to us.

So it was a great day!  I was all “I love you daughter” and she was all “I love you too Mommy”  and we were just plain mushy and happy and grinning and silly and goofy and had tons of fun!  And that was just the morning!

We were still out playing when Hubby called and said “you wanna go riding”  oh yeah I do!  So I was off on part 2 of my perfect day.

See y’all tomorrow!

  1. I LOVE your booth at the rink! Looks like you had a great day garage saling...I LOVE those gold drapes, how much did you snag those for?! I buy up old curtains/drapes all the time, even if it's for the fabric.
    See you at the Rink!
