drool, slobber, hyperventilate...

another great day for yard sales!  i stumbled across one of those rare sales where you're thinking 'pinch me, i must be dreaming'!  this time i loaded up with a vintage mannequin, vintage dress form, old bicycle, stack bookcases, antique child's cupboard and a whole set of sofa slipcovers and cushion covers in the above vintage bark cloth fabric.  they are in absolutely pristine condition.  i've already carefully taken them apart.  the ruffles will become valances in my new store and the balance of the fabric will be fashioned into upcycled purses.  and...again... i had that guilty twinge when i started cutting them up.  but...again...consoled myself that i didn't have a sofa that they would fit on.  then, i reminded myself that my real passion is in transforming something from it's former life into a new and useful thing of beauty. is good!

the countdown is on, in a little less than 3 weeks, we'll be pulling out with our moving caravan.  just when i think i'm making headway on the the packing, i hit another yard sale and it's back to lowe's for more boxes.  my husband will either have to tether my vehicle to his for the drive to CO, or else put blinders on me so i won't see all the yard sales between here and there!
