If that's not a sure sign that all of the stars and planets MUST have been aligned, then I don't know what is!!Saturday our 'College Crew' met up in a small town on the Southern shores of Lake Ontario that was having their annual town-wide 'Garage Sale / Antique Show'.
8:30 am First stop on my way into town was at a rather Grand home on the Lake, front steps flanked with MacKenzie-Childs urns (get the picture??) ... I ended up buying a couple of armloads of clothing from the Two hysterical women of the house (happily pounding mimosas to make 'Garage Sale Day' more bareable!!) - NWT Lauren, Coldwater, Talbots, boutique pieces, etc. ... NICE! New Fall wardrobe for just a tad over $10 !
9:30 am The entire crew joined forces and took off on foot to walk the triangular circuit of town! Stopping quite regularly for homemade Pie (YUM - Grape Pie!), or to support the French class at their CREPE Stand ~ Yes! Yummo Nutella & Cherry Crepes @ Garage sales - they were really good! And Chili. And Chicken Barbeque. And a beer. or Two. OH, and there was 'STUFF' too ;-)
I came home with the usual 'stuff' like vintage Christmas ornaments, and useable boring household type-stuff, but I also found 'GOOD STUFF'...

A double-chained, rhinestone beauty - 'In original box' found it's way home with me, and now resides on the NEW display board!! I feel kinda bad for the other small child's clip... it looks rather pathetic next to it - doesn't it?? It shall have a Good home too, though on one of my bird-cage displays!
LOTS of FUN.
LOTS of LAUGHS.
Wish days like this could be frozen in time.
