Andy and I hit a really great sale a couple of weeks ago. A couple were moving and had 3 out buildings full of goodies. After 2 pickup & trailer loads and less that $200 we were just flat worn out!! Yes, Andy shouldn't have lifted "Gertrude" and her base, but he does have this thing about rocks...and many other things. I haven't snapped a photo of her yet but I promise I will soon. Here are a couple of shots.

Recently my Grandmother has been relocated to an assisted living complex. Another good reason to go see her is our 8 month old granddaughter with whom Grandma hasn't been able to meet yet. So for the July 4th weekend Morgan, our daughter Lacy, my mother Charlotte, my niece Lauren and myself loaded up for a fast trip. If you counted we have 5 generations. Something we are proud of. We had a great time, took lots of pictures and of course had to check out all the yard sales! Here are a couple of shots of the goodies I found.... I found this vintage wedding dress for $20.00. It was purchased in 1969 and never worn. I guess she changed her mind about the guy! Lacy and Lauren both had fun modeling for me in Grandma's back yard. Other fun finds...an angelic print in the back, 2 pieces of glass, hunting dog paint by numbers, pink light globe, pink clutch purse, old photos, 1969 baby book, jewelry and gold metal mirror and a surprise for Andy...vintage leather crafting books. Not pictured was a cute little ceramic Dachshund door stop.
and of course the 5 generations!!!
While visiting we stayed in Grandma's house. Wow, the things you don't ever pay much attention to! Walking through the house brings back so many wonderful memories! I will always remember waking up in the mornings to Grandma and Grandpa talking and the wonderful aroma of her coffee. No one can do it better! I love you Grandma Susan
Sally joins us with a big Texas "Howdy" to all the bloggers out there. Andy found her in a junk store in Brownwood, TX and gave her to me for Valentine's Day. One of my favorite gifts. I had been wanting one for a while. She just hangs around here at the house. I change her wardrobe frequently. Right now she's dressed for the prom (which one I don't know). She's wearing a vintage ecru lace bubble dress with iridescent sequins, pearl necklace and earrings.
