***I am adding a question to bloggers. Does anyone know what is going on with the Blog Roll? For 3 days it has been off and on. Thanks for any advice!
Rhoda at Southern Hospitality is hosting Thankful Thursday. Today she asks that we post our favorite garage/flea/yard sale find. Now anyone who reads me regularly knows I really have a hard time finding a favorite. My hubby says I have 25,000 personal friends in all "my stuff". But I am going to narrow it down. I really had much more garage sale items before we moved two years ago, but my husband was really ready for a change of style...so I had to get rid of a few items. Some though are just not up for discussion!
The first item is my old school desk. We must have bought this close to 30 years ago. I have never refinished it because it has the students carvings in the wood!
Next one is my huge crock...it goes in the other backseat seatbelt along with my butter churn I posted before. I had someone offer me quite a bit of money for this...hubby was stroking out...but no, I wanted to keep it!
This chair is really a favorite. I went to an estate sale and it was really picked over. I went down to the dingy basement and there in the corner by the hot water tank was this chair. I asked the people in charge how much? $10.00. My hands were shaking I could hardly get the money out. Now my dear husband has wanted to throw this out several times. We can't sit on it. It really is too delicate with the thrush seat and little legs...so man brain says, "what good is it?" Well, as you can see, it is still here! I always put something on it so no one sits on it and takes the chance of breaking it.
I KNOW you all understand, don't you?
