We had a garage sale on Saturday and although we didn't make as much as we'd have liked to, we did accomplish one monumental thing. I can now park my car in my garage. I haven't been able to do this for over a year.
We moved in to this house about one year ago. I sold our other house and down-sized to this house. Being the pack-rat that I am and with all the wood for the main living area it has been impossible to walk through there at times much less park in it.
About 3 weeks we (A helper and me) put a Cute Rubbermaid shed in the back of my yard. Between the sale, a carload to Goodwill and the shed I can put my car in the garage. Just in time for the winter months. Here in south Texas it does frost, and some times it requires scraping the windshield! I thought I left all that when I left my beloved Kansas.
On our way to do some errands we went by an Estate sale. We didn't plan on going but they had everything 50% off. I just couldn't resist. I got 4 of these cute little plates for $7.00. I also got something that just called to me. Luckily it was 50% off so I could afford it. It was a vintage1940's nurses' uniform. Blue gingham dress and a white pinafore and the cap, too. I am sure that it could tell many a story. Tales of loving and caring, hard work , laughter and tears. Nursing has been a large part of my life for over 30 years. I place it in a place of honor,in my entry way. Welcome All, love and caring live in this home!
