Blankets, Blooms, and Other Random Thingsย 

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’• 

First of all…Happy Monday! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

It may not be perfect 

…but at least you’re not that guy ๐Ÿ˜œ

Now I wanna show you a few pictures, and tell you about my weekend ๐Ÿ˜Š

Saturday was our ‘Citywide Yardsale Day’ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ There were a lot of little flags on the yard sale map…it looked promising. 

My daughter is accessorising her new house, so she was in. ๐Ÿ˜ We took off bright and early, and were not disappointed! 

Do you know the easiest, fastest (and cheapest ๐Ÿ˜‰) way to get your hands on a ‘Granny Square’ blanket? 

You find a person that doesn’t care about any of that, and sells you one for $ 2 (two) ๐Ÿ˜œ

Talk about a lucky find! She also sold me the other one in the picture for $2 ๐Ÿ˜ 

I asked her if she knew anything about them, but all she could tell me was that she found them in an old trunk she discovered in the basement of the foreclosed home she bought “as is”. 

They were a bit dusty, but 2 cycles in the wash (last one with Lysol – you never know ๐Ÿ˜‰) and the colors pop again. ๐Ÿ™‚

As we were out and about we stopped at a State Park with an amazing view over the Missouri River into Missouri…I think our little corner of the world is quite pretty ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Back home I washed my treasures, and as I hung them out to dry I noticed that some of my flowers gathered some strength for summer’s last ‘Hurrah’ 

The blanket in the background โฌ†๏ธ is another Yard Sale beauty ๐Ÿ˜

Sometimes when my brain seems to be on overload….in Lorelai Gilmore fashion ‘Monkey, Monkey, Underpants’ ๐Ÿ˜† …. I like to sit outside, and just watch the bees, the flowers, and the clouds ๐Ÿ˜Š

Other people get Angels….I get Daffy Duck ๐Ÿ˜†

Aaaaand…..poof….the weekend was over – but that’s ok. ๐Ÿ˜ Every new week brings new possibilities and ideas and ways to make new memories. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I hope you have an amazing week, and am sending you Love, Hugs, and Smiles ๐Ÿ’•

    Your neck of the woods is beautiful. I love yard sales although I haven’t had the chance to go to one in awhile. Now it looks like I NEED to. ๐Ÿ™‚
