Hey Y’all!

If you’re reading this, more than likely you’re familiar with my “VintageSue Fanaticism”. She’s one of the most creative, vibrant souls that I’ve ever met. She can take a piece of garbage (I’m talkin’ trash picked right from the curb) and turn it into something so amazing, so wonderful (yes, so yummy!) that you would be proud to display it in your home.

I call it her “magic”. I don’t know how she does it … but it continues to amaze me and thrill me each time I enter her booth of lovelies. It’s like a spell that washes over me. She calls it “craziness”, but whatever you call it, it is something very special.

Talent and creativity aside, what makes this lady even more special is her sweet, generous spirit. She has a “Pay it Forward” philosophy and I’m willing to bet that it has served her well.

Here then, are pictures of just some of the goodies that Sue has blessed me with … both given to me and some I bought from her. In my opinion, they are ALL gifts. So here’s to you, Sue!

Love and hugs to all!

Hey Y’all!

Before I start blathering on about the junk I unearthed today at yard sales and the Goodwill, I want to say a public THANK YOU to dear, sweet Sue, aka VintageSue.

She said she was leaving me a goodie bag at Crafter’s, and I picked it up on Wednesday when I was there, shopping (more like RAIDING!) her booth. Well. Let me tell you, I was speechless. And that doesn’t happen often. HA!

The lady hands me this huge plastic bag (the kind comforters/bedspreads come in) and it is STUFFED to the gills with all manner of niceties, lovelies, goodies and preciousness!!!! Oh.My.Gawd. I could hardly wait to get home and tear into it!!

And that is where I stop the story. For now. I have not taken pictures of all those treasures, so you will have to tune in NEXT time to see just what Miss Vintage Sue shared with me. What a sweet, generous lady she is. Pay it Forward, she does. Thank you, Sue!!

There was a plethora of yard sales, garage sales, estate sales, community-wide sales, book sales, holiday bizarres, flea markets galore this weekend. I wanted to hit each one of ’em, but of course, that never happens.

I sweet-talked my hubby into taking me to Temple. He dropped me off at the GW barn and he headed to the mall. A couple of hours later, I toted several bags (come to think of it, I think HUBBY carried the bags) out to the car. Lotsa great loot there.

We went on a couple of wild goose chases, hunting down phantom yard sales and an estate sale. Not knowing Temple all that well, we didn’t have much luck. However, we stumbled upon a large yard sale at a church. It was the last day of a three-day sale and they were practically BEGGING people to take things. GREAT bargains. Ka-ching!

Happily, we headed home with Chick-Fil-A on my lap.

Eventually (when?!?!), I will get organized and start doing something with all this junk. Sigh. Soooo many projects, soooo little time and energy!!

Happy Weekend, y’all. Love and hugs!
