Garage Saling was HOT! HOT! HOT! yesterday…and so was the weather!! (Must have been over 30C (90sF)…too hot for this GSer!)
But I still managed to shout out a few “SCORES”…did you hear me??
There was this old earthenware pottery bowl…I have been looking a long time for one of these…one in good condition and one that I could afford!! The fella was asking $10 for it…like I said it was hot and it was already after 10 o’clock so when I offered $5 he took it! SCORE!! I LOVE IT!! (I would have gladly paid the $10…but a girl’s got to try…after all WE are GSing!!) It is also VERY heavy…and big!! Remember it had to be small and light as a feather for the 5th wheel…but this is EARTHENWARE…the heavy kind! Oh well…maybe I can sneak it in…
It was a neighbourhood sale and the house beside this garage sale was giving away grapefruit…bags were hanging from the tree…so I filled a bag…picked my own for FREE!! Delicious…sweet and juicy…like grapefruit candy…and each one is HUGE!
Then I stumbled onto this platter!! Loved it too…and it was only $5 and in perfect condition! I love the strawberry motif on the platter…
Reminded me of a certain quilt that is on my BUCKET LIST…I could see this platter sitting on that Bonnie Sullivan quilt…the pattern is waiting for me at home!! NOW I HAVE to make it!!
Good thing there is a Quilt Shop Blog Hop coming up this Thursday…I NEED to buy some green homespuns…shheeeesh…there is ALWAYS something!
