on the look out

For the record, I attempted "yard sale-ing" this last Saturday. [see post directly below]

No purchases were made. I did come across an antique sewing machine with it's wood cover, which was tempting, but most definitely not a necessity. So I passed it up.

I don't view this as unsuccessful; I was happy that I actually tried this new venture in the second hand world.

yard sales

I don't really do yard sales, but I think I might start it up. Originally, I thought I'd just do yard sales to get inexpensive furniture that I could slab on a coat of paint and make it a great piece. I'm so inspired by you all out there who do this and share your before/afters.

I might keep my eyes open for old dresses too, the kind I never would have thought twice about until viewing the blog...New Dress A Day. Guarantee you'll be inspired to look into second hand after you see what she comes up with.

an update

...on an update.

Yes, something will be coming soon, after we get this new house of ours together from the move.

So stay tuned, if you must, but I'm not promising anything too juicy in the future.
