Let the season begin!

Around here the church rummage sale marks the unofficial kickoff of yard saling season. Hurray! It was made even better by the church lady bake sale; cupcakes just in time for the fishes' birthday. (That will be a whole blog in and of itself, lol)

Zack's find was this cast iron wagon toy. A tiny bit of research tells me it is probably a reproduction though we will check it out further.

Odds and ends for me: a magazine for 15 cents, two bags of Mardi Gras beads for the same, and a pretty little hankie with a lady and her troubadour for a quarter.

Pay dirt for me: a couple of vintage atlases to craft with. Fifteen cents.

More happiness: books of vintage sheet music for a quarter each! I should have bought the whole box, but felt like I needed to share because, you know, it's church.

The best treat: a quiet morning with Zack, who had a free day from school while little brother still had to go to preschool. Don't you just love days that are a little bit off the beaten path? Zack didn't believe me at first when I told him we were going treasure hunting.
