My 1st yard sale of the season!!!

So, if you know me, you know that my life revolves around; YARD SALES!!!
and you also know that my life is in ruins during the winter because there are NONE TO BE FOUND. Seriously, it feels like a "mini death" because there is a greiving process: denial, depression, anger,& then finally acceptance. Honestly, it is a very sad time in my life- but that was cured for 5 minutes last weekend when, in Feburary, I went to my 1st YARD SALE OF THE SEASON!!! I almost wet my pants as we were driving to the Y to go swimming and saw the sign. So, on our way back, I forced Travis to stop and I scored this cute metal box for FREE! (yes, I know it is some sort of man tool box, but my girly eyes thought of craft stuff!) I offered the hairy man .50 for it, but he said, "Oh, honey you can have that." Well, alrighty then, thanks Mr! I brought it home, cleaned it up and slapped some vinyl on it and soon enough I'll find something to go inside it. Maybe my embroidery floss???
Oh, how yard sales make me come alive!!!
