I saw a thing on Facebook and this is what it said:
Oh my word…I love the saying!!
The original context of it was in reference to children but heck with that. I want to live my adult life that way too….and so, I’ve been playing!
My weekends have been jammed packed with stuff I love….junking, my kiddos, Hubby and goofing off. It’s been fabulous!
Friday night I started plotting out my weekend. The plan was an auction in Decorah on Saturday….but then Kalissa messaged me about a garage sale in Nashua. That changed the plans. There were things there that we thought we could use for selling with the vintage antique stuff. So I was up and “at ’em” early and in Nashua before 8am.
I ended up bringing a truck load of things home…mostly furniture. It was garage sale days in Nashua so I ended up stopping at more sales. I went to eight sales and bought something at 7 of the sales. That never happens. Honestly, the truck was stacked to the brim. I was so frustrated with myself for not taking pictures. Here is one of the pieces I bought….I’ll show an update about it on Wednesday.
From there I met Hubby at home and he helped me unload. Then I was off to that auction.
I had high hopes for the auction. There was suppose to be quilt tops, fabric galore, a rug loom, sewing machines…yep. I had high hopes.
The auction was PACKED. Many of the quilts were like the one shown. They were going cheap… $35 for this one but I don’t need anymore.
There was fabric galore. Boxes and boxes. I ended up not staying. A friend of mine was there and said it went for $20 to $80 a box. I know exactly that box that went for $80. The one with the feed sack prints in it. There were about 40 quilt tops, all unfinished.
They had this cool old two needled machine there…..
…and a Franklin treadle. See? [Read more…] about A Playful Life for Me!
