Taking Nellie to the Yard Sale......


WOW.......... Has my day started off great! I pulled out of my road, drove 1/2 mile and there it was, the big sign~ HUGE SALE>TURN HERE! I passed, knowing I had another destination.... but thinking ....... hmmmm......... I am not on a time schedule here........ So I swung Ole Nellie around and we headed back to the big sign and I wondered which farm could it be. I knew that Nunally Farm Road was the home to only farm houses. So, I slowly drove down the road looking for a big sign ~ it had to be big, the sign on the road was big~ and there it was.......... tents set-up, stuff everywhere, sign saying 9:00 - 5:00. This is great......... but I am here at 8:15. What the heck, go for it. I pull in, seeing someone else already looking. Go in and the lady says welcome, we are still setting up. And my eyes are going crazy searching out treasures. I am in altered art, first apartment (my daughter's) heaven! I start grabbing and negotiating and before I know it I have spent my limit. What a day and it is only 8:30. What damage I can do in 15 minutes. But it felt good! I don't do this very often. Once in a blue moon! This for me was a gift today, a blessing! Thank God for allowing me to feel this good to get out and do this, having it this close to my home, a nice lady and family to help me and wonderful husband who allows me to shop! WOW,God is good and life is good WHOOOOPS............ I forgot! We have to pick up the desk tonight that goes with the rest of the goodies. I will post the pictures of it later!!! It is so beautiful!
