Town-Wide Garage Sale=Fun

My dad went fishing--And left my mom home alone!

So she came to spend the weekend with me. Poor Dad--he doesn't know what he's missing!

We went to Garage Sales--Like, Only Our Favorite Saturday Morning Activity!!!!

Les and Molly bought Bikes!We bought some tables for Molly to embellish!Mom bought a sewing machine for only 4 bucks. And it sews like a dream!
Mom found all this awesome fabric!
We bought these beautiful depression glass cake plates! Please excuse the spot in the middle of my forehead--whats up with that!
What to do with all this fabric....thinking.....thinking.....

So Mom tries out her new sewing machine! What will she make with her fabulous new toy????

I check out the pile of books we brought home while she's sewing!

Look at what she whipped up!!! Could these be......Yes! They Are.........


Fabulous Fall decorations! What fun! What Beauty! What Creativity!!

We caught a bunch of bargains! What do you think Dad's caught???

Haha! that is awesome! I am so sad that I miss stuff like that... today I got up and hung out with boys scouts.... It was fun but very exhausting! Scouts Honor!

I really wish you guys would put some emotion and expression into your pictures:) I want to go garage sale shopping with you sometime - you have too much fun!

looks like so much fun, I think I have a green cake plate that matches some you found. It was my great-grandmothers...remind me to show you some time!

oh and if les ever needs a couple of fishing buddies, caden and carter already have their own poles!
