So early on a Saturday

When the alarm went off this morning, I thought to myself, "Do you really want to get up and go to garage sales this morning"? Myself said, "You never know what you might be missing out on if you don't get your bones out of bed".

I am so pleased with the "treasures" I lugged home. I had been wanting one of those cool 3-tiered baskets. I can't believe it was still there. I had hit about 5 places before this one. It will be perfect for the new shop we are opening. (It turns out that I have more time to prepare for the new shop - the owner wants to put up new ceiling tiles, repaint, spruce up the floors, and who-knows-what-else. Instead of tomorrow, we won't get to move in until the end of the month.)

I bought the Coca Cola cooler to go in the shop, but my husband snatched it. I guess that's okay.

Oh--love that tiered basket!! I have one of those too that was in my dining room for a long time, and now I'm stealing it and putting it down in my craft studio!

It's so exciting about the shop..and now you have a little more time to prepare, that's pretty nice, isn't it?

Smiles, Karen

I am green with envy over that 3 tiered basket. I've been eyeing one online for quite some time.
