Garage Sale Buy, More Flowers & Another Giveaway
Jim and I went to a few garage sales yesterday even though it was steamy out there. I found a book I had wanted to buy, and a couple of baby things for the layettes at church at the first houses. On the next stop, I purchased three grocery bags full of scraps for 25 cents each! I had such a fun time searching through them. After sorting the colors, I almost refilled one of the bags with red, white/tan & blue scraps for soldier blocks. This picture shows the contents of just one of the bags. Annie apparently doesn't want me to empty the one she is guarding. I love finding bargains!
Wednesday, Connie and I went on another Garden Walk nearby. It was 90 degrees outside with high humidity, so we made our stops, snapped a few pics and dashed back to the a/c in the car. One house had a gorgeous row of lavendar that gave the yard such a sweet fragrance. Another yard had such huge flowers. The women said the garden had been double dug. I had never heard of that. If I remember correctly, you dig down two feet and put the topsoil at the bottom. At the last stop, we were treated to fancy cupcakes, brownies and fruit bars.
