I went to the sidewalk sale tonight. This once-a-year shindig they have down historic Main Street where all the shops bring out some of their goods and set them up on the sidewalk in front of their stores… and then call it a sale! A lot of it is junk… but if you look hard enough, you can find you some treasures… and seriously… who doesn’t love them a treasure!?
As you can see, overcast days really bring out the crowds… HOLD ME BACK! Most of the stores opted not even to show up since it was raining on and off for most of the day. No matter… shop-a-holic Madre will NOT BE DETERRED!!
Mostly, Madre just wanted to steal the hanging flower pots… if you’ll remember she is a known lilac stealer around these parts. Pretty sure she is on the Top 10 Most Wanted Weed and Flower Stealer List. You will be happy to know that these buggers are still hanging safely on their pole.
Merry Christmas, Darling… I almost bought me one of these handy dandy Santy trays for all of those July Christmas shindigs I hold in the back outhouse… Then, I remembered the episode of Hoarders I watched the other night and didn’t.
I found out that floppy hats totally make my ankles look fat… so, I didn’t buy one of these either.
LINDSAY!!! HELLO KITTY ALERT! ALERT the church elders… you NEED this bike to match your Hello Doggy Underoos!!
You will all be happy to know that this dude was doing his job, watching over his minions (and freaking Whitney out… who stands that still!?!?)
The minions! Do not laugh! Y’all… who doesn’t want 3 nekked cherub babies stacked on top of each other in statue form!?!?! Seriously now! I’m just surprised there weren’t more of them. The masses of folks who wanted to buy one were… MASSIVE!
This here is the definition of a bench warmer! Bwahahahahahaha… I slay myself. I’d never seen a bench woven through with knitted items… but now you know what to do if your bench ever feels neglected.
The only treasure I came away with was this:
My inspiration board… only paid $15 (was regularly $40) and now I just need to fill it up and hang her on the wall. For those of you who are not familiar with an inspiration board:
What is an Inspiration Board?
Well, it’s anything you want it to be! But, basically it’s a photo collage that inspires you, drives you, helps you reach your goals, keeps you focused, organizes, makes you happy or just makes you laugh!
It’s a two dimensional art project that YOU create and there are no rules, guidelines or limits to what you can do!
Right on, Frederica! I’ve decided I need to make me one of these. And you don’t need a fancy board to make you one either… a piece of cardboard or poster board will do just fine. I’m thinking it might be fun to have an inspiration board making party one night in the next couple months. I’ll host it in the backyard for anyone (within driving distance of course) who is interested in attending. If you don’t want to attend, aren’t comfortable in groups (I KNOW and understand this) and/or aren’t within driving distance, I totes think you should still make yourself an inspiration board! I’m hoarding magazines as we speak. If you are interested in coming to the shindig, let me know in the comments and I’ll be sure to keep you in the know on the date and time… and what you should bring… you know… besides your brain… and your rear receptacle (makes sitting easier). All ages (males and females) are welcome… the only restriction is you should at least be 6 months of age and able to fasten your own diaper!
Question of the Day: Have you ever made an inspiration board? What would you put on yours?
