I am ready for Spring.
I love the budding of the trees, the daffodils popping from the barren earth, the longer days. . .
but, nothing compares to the joy I feel in the Spring when I see the first yard sale sign go up!
My Saturday morning started with a quick cup of coffee, waking up my 13 year old daughter (former yard sale despiser turned yard sale lover) and heading to the Episcopal church for the White Elephant sale.
I had seen the signs for the White Elephant sale for a couple of weeks. My heart skipped a beat when I saw the first sign go up.
This is the first sign in my hometown that yard sale season is about to begin. It will start slow. Just a few sales here and there. Herds of people will attend those first sales. The faithful yard sale crew that have patiently been waiting all winter.
In just a few more weeks, every major intersection in town will direct me to one of a dozen sales.
I found some amazing treasures at the church and actually found one yard sale on the way home. I guess they had seen the signs for the White Elephant sale and figured they would get some traffic from it.
I will share those treasures this week.
Along with a tutorial for a burlap wreath.
For today, I share this.
We have had some sunny days. Perfect for painting.
My family wishes that there were more of these “perfect for painting” days. I literally have furniture on our front porch because my garage is too full! I am sure my neighbors think I am some sort of fruit loop.
I love the combination of Old White and Duck Egg.
I think it is going to have to include some furniture in this color combo.
Please tell me that I am not the only one with this yard sale obsession?!
Life to the full,
