Recent Finds & Garage Sale~Part 2


 This is the cake I made for Mom's birthday. Angle food cake, whip cream, fresh strawberries and a drizzle or 2 of chocolate...YUM!!!


 Recent finds...baby ben clocks always sell, even it they don't work! The round license my stay at my house! I'm SO bad about keeping things...


 SO, here I go again with round TWO of the garage sale. I even went through SOME of my crafting papers!

I have my duty day tomorrow and then back to loading up the garage with more treasures! This is only MY garage. Hubby's had a TWO CAR garage and it will be LOADED TOO!! We are hoping for great weather and Many sales!!!

My bluebirds left the nest and I saw one of them take off! It was so sweet to watch and today while watering the flowers, a hummingbird decided to drink right there in front of me! That was AMAZING to watch! It sat on the feeder and drank away! I'm calling that my Blessing/Gift for the day. Each day I write down something in my journal to be thankful for or a blessing! Thanks, God!!!

I hope your week has Many Blessings/Gifts and there is Always, Always, Something to be Thankful for!
warmly,
deb

I love to see the hummingbirds! My blessing of the day has been seeing the flowers I planted out my front window. They make me happy!

Hummingbirds are so amazing! Wish I lived closer to come to your multi-garage sale. I have got to start getting rid of a lot of my stuff. It just pains me tho. LOL Good luck with the sale and the weather.

The cake you make is so delicious looking. I would have loved seeing the bluebird fly from the nest. I have to clean my hummingbird feeders...gnats have gotten in the nectar. Blessings , xoxo,Susie

It was definitely a treasure hunting/finding day for my blogging friends. I got lucky at a flea market held at my favorite antique mall. I found a red/white/blue old pinwheel quilt and my sweet friend Paula sold me a Steiff Bear for $10 just so it would have a good home. Bless her...she's my Saturday blessing. I love the idea of expressing gratitude for a blessing each day. Today's blessing was how green and tall my mountains looked under the deep blue of the sky and the whipped cream clouds. I love living here!

Hope the sale went well! Love that round license plate...I would have kept it, too! It's a perk of the job...first picks!

Mmm... Your cake looks very tasty, Deb :) I am sure it was enjoyed by all! And what great treasures! I always love seeing what you are able to find. Happy Monday!

Musings from Kim K. said...

I always enjoy seeing your treasures. I hope your sales were fantastic! I really love that round license plate and can see why you are keeping it! What a fantastic idea to have a blessing journal. It's too easy to get caught up in the day to day chores and not take time to see what's around you. I'm going to share this journal idea with my family. Maybe this could be something we do each night at the dinner table.

How fun for you to see the baby bluebird fly away. I had a hummingbird feed not a foot away from me while I was watering last week. It really is wonderful to be up so close. Your cake looks strawberrylicious!

Hi Deb, how special to see the hummers drink right in front of you. We love watching them too. Also very sweet to watch the bluebird fly off to a new life away from the nest. Great treasures you found and oh boy that cake looks so good. Happy Birthday to your mom.
Have a great week.
Hugs, CM
