Pretty Birdies and $5.00 estate bag


This pretty little guy is hanging around my bird feeder and bird bath. Makes me happy when they hang around long enough so I can take a photo. I did a one on one "Bird" swap with Victoria and here are the goodies she sent. I had to show you both side of the tags she made. Just lovely. THANKS for swapping with me! I LOVE my goodies!









We went to a couple of sales this weekend. All of the above is from yesterday as they were doing the $5.00 bag sale. All these things and a few more is what I loaded into my bag. So, they were basically "free"!! LOL! You just never know on the last day and an hour before closing what goodies you will find.

Granddaughter starts her Fast-Pitch softball games on Wednesday and will be playing on Mon & Wed evenings. Tues & Thursday evenings, future SIL plays on a coed team. I'll try to go once a week to support him. WOW, my evenings will fly by!

I'm getting more crap/good stuff ready for my garage sale next Thursday!

Going to a church Tea Party on Saturday. I'll take some photos of the tables. Can you believe it's almost Mom's day! WOW, the month is going by too quickly.

Warmly,

deb

p.s. My peonies are budding!!! Can't wait for them to flower!

Deb, you find the greatest 'stuff'. I'd PAY money to have yard sales like this around here.

Oh, what fun you will have at the ball games. I love our kid-lings games.

My peonies are trying soooo hard to open! Anticipation ...

Have a beautiful week ~

What goodies--both from the swap and the estate sale. Good for you! Love the bird, too. My hummingbirds just returned this week and I'm itching to get a picture. They are so fast! I love them though and have missed them all winter. Have a great day!

Hey Deb: Thanks for visiting my blog. I love your $5 bag full of stuff-how fun. I am going to look forward to you tea photos. To answer your question about how long it takes me to make a card-well if I have the idea and plan already formed in my head-about 2 to 3 hours. If no plan 5 to 6 hours...lol Thanks for asking Many blessings to you.
Bear Hugs,
Carol
