Garage Sale Finds & Baby Chickadees


I went out on Thursday in 90+ degrees and found these goodies! YES, I needed a little "fix"! All at great prices! I'm going to paint the little "bench" and probably keep it. The black "birdcage" is also going to get painted.


We have a bluebird house and the chickadees took it over and had 5 babies. After they flew the coop, hubby went to clean out the birdhouse and found one little guy who didn't make it. We now have bluebirds in the house with 1 egg in it. I sure hope it makes it!

Grandgirl ended up liking (VBS) Day camp. She went all 4 days. Thankful!

On Thursday I'm meeting up with 4 friends from high school. There should be a 40th high school reunion this year! However, no one is organinzing it! Guess the year isn't over! LOL! YES, I'm that OLD!

WOW, July is almost over! The summer always goes by too quickly! I hope you are enjoying your summer!
Warmly,
deb

Great finds, Deb. I was noticing the chair behind the table you have stuff displayed on. It looks identical to hubby's grandmother's set that my daughter now has. Hers has needlepoint seats and the table to match.
Poor little bird and I hope your bluebird makes it. xo Diana

We've had a bluebird house for two years...this year we have a pair...I am not sure how many times they raise little ones, because they are still here and go in and out of the house. i'm thrilled about. In all my life I never dreamed I'd have bluebirds. Hope you get to enjoy yours and get pictures. I have yet to sneak a picture. xoxo,Susie

Glad you got your fix, Deb! :)
and with some cute things, too! I think I spied some little red riding hood dishes?

Bobby and I braved the heat to go garage sailing. If we just would have left off the last 2, I think we would have been okay! ♥

Birds everywhere must be multiplying like crazy. We've had cardinals and woodpeckers nesting in our trees and bushes this year. You're lucky to have a bluebird...I've never even seen one IRL. Always fun to see what you've nabbed at the sales...I love the little red trucks!!
Stay cool my friend!

I have a soft spot for the Fischer Price puppies! I love them! We had a nest of Finches in our lemon tree this year....however something, got to the eggs :( Good luck raising your bird!

I love chickadees! We finally started seeing them here last year, and we enjoy watching them in the trees. My aunt has several bluebird houses and other birds always take over the houses. Or there are snakes in them!!!
