we went out this morning to a few sales and thought for a moment we might set up at the local flea - but the light rain and very cold temps stopped us ..
so, first thing out the door - we were almost to the 1st sale and i realized i had forgotten my keys - rod was driving and there was really no need for me to have my keys - however, i still felt naked without them jingling around in my coat pocket. ..
then all morning i'm feeling this bunch in my shorts - so to speak - 1st trip to the mens room and i realize i got my shorts on backwards - my boxer shorts - have no idea how that happened .. and maybe that is TMI .. but it felt real weird .. jez, i'm getting old kind of weird ..
then we hit a sale .. found some great stuff ..
... and i spot the most wonderful sheep trophy - and it was marked a single buck - $1 - i scoop it up and am so proud of myself - cause you see i know someone who collects sheep stuff and i was so proud of the fact i spotted this great piece - so i carry it all around the sale with me while i gather other things and hand them off to be placed in 'our pile' - i do not let my sheep out of site - in fact i even devise a way i can hold him in my hand and still grab something else - not going to let my sheep out my hands - someone else might get him - someone else might see he is only a buck and offer the seller more for my wonderful sheep trophy -
anyway, so i go through all of that with the sheep - get home - searching through all the bags for my sheep trophy so i can snap a picture and get him listed - that is when i realize my sheep is a cow -
rod's right, i need to wear my glasses more often -
have a good day - enjoy the season -
off to list on etsy - meanwhile, enjoy some pics of the smalls we found this morning - not pictured that we found are a machine age office desk, a wonderful old oak library table with tenons at the joints, a childs doll chest of drawers (once saw a sign that advertised chester drawers), a folding trolley tea cart, a gorgeous large painted victorian frame, a set of cameo dishes by harkerware, a set of eternally yours silverplate flatware in the chest, a sweet tranfersware turkey platter ..
also not shown .. an old boy scout type flag, a harvard felt banner, a vanderbilt cap and banner and an old wallpapered bathroom wastebasket in pink ..
