Today was a very long day. I hit the yard sales at 6:30 this morning and started out with a crawl, but ended up with a bang. I returned home at 11:00 and set out to clean my catch and get things organized. I am dead tired and ready for a good night's sleep. Before I turn in, I wanted to share just a couple of things I found that I thought were a little out of the ordinary.
First I found this beautiful little mirror. It's not an oldie, but it was so adorable. The image can be removed and I think I am going to Xerox it and put it back in. Isn't this sweet? It's about 18 inches tall so it's a good size treasure.
Next I found this awesome pig. It is now residing on the front porch. My greeter rabbits went back to the side yard where they spend their summers and winters. They will return in the spring.
This little guy is also about 18 inches tall. He's metal and heavy. I washed him off and I see his feet are still a little damp, but it was love at first sight for me.
I also found this little quacker. He's on a little pole and his feet and wings are rubber. He's a homemade critter. I am going to save him for a while as well. His little feet move along as you push the wheels. Too cute.
Last but not least, I found a great sale with used towels for 25 cents. You probably wonder why this is news worthy. Whenever I find used bath towels for a quarter, I buy as many as I can get my hands on. Our local animal rescues are in desperate need of towels and blankets for abandoned pets. If you love animals like I do, many of the local rescue societies in any part of the country would love to have these items donated. I go to my local Petco. They keep a bin for unexpired pet food and for blankets and towels, and the rescue people come by and pick them up. It's kind of hidden so you need to ask where to find it. So the next time you are out and about, please don't forget about our furry friends.
