Curb Shopping

Today was a close by towns city wide clean up. So what's a gal to do but con hubby into coming along to drive the truck! I managed to find a few treasures. One small side table,an end of a vintage crib,an extra large rotted out chair which I think could be lovely in a garden,two old vintage suitcases in perfect condition and the hangers that go with it still intact, and one small stepladder. Of course hubby refused to get out of truck! Guess he was to embarassed! I know if I would of found something heavy he would of helped maybe.
So all in all a pretty fruitful day! 

I wanted to show you all some Easter tags I made to sell.

Also the cabinet all in place at the shop ready to sell!

Here is another collage I made I'm getting a little collage crazy I know! They are just so fun to be creative!

A couple more photos of my son and his adorable girlfriend all dressed up for prom and one with me.

I teased them that they looked like Ken and Barbie

Yes he is tall he is 6'4!

    Have a blessed Easter.
