No sirree this was not your average garden snake!
I also scored big on the yardsale circuit Sat. with some great finds, both for me and my Etsy store!
The first find of the day was this game table. Denise talked the seller down from $20 to $15. It's got great detail.
Beautiful leather top.
This sweet vintage magazine holder is going to be for sale on my Etsy store.
Also have some exciting news to share with my bloggy friends. Denise and I have been thinking about having a booth at a local market and were just looking for a sign that the time was right. Well, thanks to Laura at Finding Home, we got our sign.
My hubby and I have been teaching 3rd Grade Sunday School in the same room of our church for years, yet I didn't notice this sign until last week.
It struck a chord with me because Turtles have special meaning to me. I had a rough childhood and my Dad, who is also a middle child, always called me his turtle. We had our own mantra - "The turtle always wins the race" he would tell me. Dad started giving me turtles he brought home from his travels with my Mom and I now have a collection. The saying on the sign was a reference to turtles I had never heard before and I loved it!
Imagine my shock when I was blogging that same night and came across Laura's post about her first home show. At the end of her post, Laura mentioned this exact same saying about turtles. In fact, her post was called "Turtle Signs"! I had just told Denise that same weekend that we need to start praying that God would give us a sign if the time was right for us to have a show. Well, if this isn't a sign from God I don't know what is! So thanks again to Laura and of course to my Lord for His greatness.
Denise and I are so excited to get started. Our first show will hopefully be in Sept. giving us the whole Summer to prepare. We've already started accumulating lots of vintage goodness to sell and hubby helped us make our first corkboard, which will be for sale too.
That's all for now! Thanks for stopping by. Today I'm also guest-posting for Traci at Beneath My Heart for her "Help, I'm Moving" series. Stop by Traci's blog to see my post about Craig's List!
