..."My Dog Has Fleas"

ANYBODY OUT THERE REMEMBER THIS?????
(Before you read any further... NO. We don't have any pets!)

First things first!

Our Roadtrip to Ohio was Wonderful.  Full of Fun ~ Friends ~ Family ~ Treasure Hunting & Winery Hopping... what more could you hope to pack into a 3-day weekend? (well, we had heard of a good seaglass beach but time just didn't allow...)
Lots of Goodies for "RESALE"... Harley Drink coozies, retro tin litho sandpail, Redwing plate, Spain pitcher, Moppets Plate, MidCentury candle holder, Waterford candy dish.....


More for resale... American Girl Charms and Charm Bracelet

I did get a little 'Bling' for ME!! VERA 2012 #11 ($1), Sweater Clip 2012 #11 (.50¢), Burmel & Echo Scarves .50¢ea and 2 silver/black rhinestone buttons.
 ~BUT~
My truly FAVORITE find of the weekend?!
Completely Spontaneous...
What am I going to do with it?
Why...?
I.don't.know.
just.
got.
to.
have.
it.
purchase.
.

Can you say...
.
.
UKULELE?
BUT WAIT...
NOT JUST 'A' UKULELE... 
BECAUSE, ON SUCH AN IMPULSE BUY,
YOU HAVE TO BUY TWO!!
 WARNING: 2 UKULELES + WINE IS NOT A GOOD COMBO!
(count for the corkboard is around 450 and it is FULL... now I'm just replacing some 'synthetics' w/ 'real corks', etc...)

I did buy the two Ukes with EVERY intention of resale! HONESTLY I did!! I got them home, cleaned them up, took photos (like my props with the surf board and vintage suitcase? ALOHA!) Started to do my research - learned that they are Soprano Ukes, and the tuning is "MY DOG HAS FLEAS", got the one tuned up, then I fell in love...  OKAY, OKAY... so I'm weak...  Hey, ONE WILL BE FOR SALE! (and just be glad that none of YOU have to listen to it!)




Did you guess it?!

I've been seeing those on blogs lately, so of course, now I think I need to find one too. Glad you did!

Between you and Barbara, I think you found two of everything this week. I've never seen a Ukulele except while I was in Hawaii. What a fun find (or two).

I have a ukulele in my upstairs guest bath to go with my Hawaii decor so I understand completely!

Nice finds in the other stuff - love the sweater clip!
