Garage or Yard Sales

Well, my friend Caryn and I had our last Artist's Date
since she is leaving soon for her permanent home.
Snow birds eventually do fly north when it gets warmer.
We are now at 75-80+ degrees, perfect outside weather.

So we went to some local garage or yard sales to shop
for stuff you really don't need, but want-cause it's so cheap.
I bought a big antique jug to decorate my yard with,
a gravy pitcher for Sunday dinners, and other have to haves.

Caryn is the expert shopper as she goes regularly year
round looking for bargains or fun stuff for home decor.
We mostly enjoyed the searching for signs and talking
along the way as we hunted for second hand treasures.

Then of course, it was time for lunch so we headed to a new place
where their sandwiches are big enough for two to share.
Loaded with tasty pulled pork, onions, tomatoes and avocados,
we enjoyed a picnic sitting outside in our springtime weather.

Thanks for a wonderful winter full of friendship and love,
have a great summer at home tending to your flowers, dear Caryn.


  1. its amazing the treasures you can find at garage sales.

  2. Safe travels Caron...I like the idea of a garage sake and then I get tired out..LOL...

  3. You will miss Caryn, but it was a lovely time you had together.

  4. I love to browse at garage sales and flea markets. You never know what treasures you might find.

  5. That sandwich looks awfully good.

    I believe in New England garage/yard sales are called 'tag sales.'

    I don't have the luxury of indulging in those anymore. As an apartment dweller the last thing I need is more 'stuff'.

  6. Hah, I need toi go find a hat at a treasure shop!
    ...a group of teachers decided we were going to dress up on Friday as if we were invited to the royal wedding; so I need my hat!!!
    wouldn't you agree?

  7. I'm so jealous! This sounds like my kind of perfect day. A garage sale, eating fun food with a best friend. Sighhhh...

  8. Amen, sister! Sounds like a grand time!
