It's Thursday, but it feels like Friday to me...

Last week at work I put in mega hours trying to get ready for our fall kick-off and throwing a going away party for our Youth Pastor (my former boss). So this week, I had to take 2 extra days off to make up for it. Today was one of those days. It feels so much like a Friday since Auntie and I met up and checked out a few sales-we never get to do that on a Thursday!!

The pickings were very, very slim this week as far as sales go...last week there were 185 sales in our local paper. This week there were only 56 sales! I hope it is just because it is Labor Day weekend, and not that the sales are drying up for the winter (gasp!). I am dreading the day when I scan the garage sale or estate sale section in the newspaper and there isn't a single one listed! I have been having soo much fun this summer going to sales. I've even gotten quite an efficient system all worked out!

This is what I found today...

My last small blue Pyrex mixing bowl-to complete my last ever set! I ended up with 3 sets because I kept finding the bowl super cheap and just couldn't walk away from them!

A WAY cool purple bottle and it's a big one too!

An even BIGGER blue bottle-these are going to look wayyy cool in my flower bed!

Look what I picked today! #2 on the plant with 2 more to come!

How were the sales in your area? Tomorrow I am going to a funeral, so no sales for me. If you have a minute, please send up a prayer for my friend Laura and her family, her father had a massive heart attack on Monday while playing softball and didn't survive. They are all so devastated...Laura's little girls were there when it sad!

I'm hoping to hit a new to me flea market on Saturday, Sunday will be spent getting ready for our "End of the Summer Potluck & Volleyball Party" on Monday-c'mon over if you're in the area!


  1. Do you happen to still have that Vinuva bottle and.. would you sell it? I have been looking for one of those for years!

    Thanks and I love your blog. :)


  2. Hi Jerry!
    I'm pretty sure I still have it, and I'd be willing to sell it if I do. I'll have to check and get back to you.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Wow, you would really make my (year?) if you did.

    Thanks for checking.

    Your blogroll is awesome too! I've been, spending so much time going through all of it today. ;)

  4. I found it! Please send me an email so I can send you pictures!

  5. Great! You can email me at j2z1966(at)

    Thanks a bunch. :)

  6. Hi again. I looked around the blog but couldn't find an email for you, so I posted an email to reach me above. Sorry if I misunderstood.

    Have a good day.

  7. Hi Jerry!
    I sent you a bunch of pictures to the email address you sent me. I hope you got them. Let me know if you didn't, and I'll resend them. I'm working on a button for my blog for "Email Me", but so far they haven't worked out!
