Garage Sales

Linda and I spent went to Freeland's Citywide Garage Sales today. We both found some great bargains. I only spent about $5 and came home with a lot of stuff. I got 2 hard cover books, "Vanishing Acts" by Jodi Picoult and "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini. I found a mini-grater for a quarter, a deck of cards and a bracelet for a dime each. Thanks to Linda's quick eyes, I got the salad spinner I wanted for $1.

The following wooden pin is about an inch and a half tall. I thought it would look cute on a collar of a denim shirt. It only cost a nickel.

For fifty cents, I bought the fabric below. There are 7 different pieces of green fabric, each about half of a fat quarter.

On Sunday Tom noticed that Tiffanys in Frankenmuth had an interesting dessert on their menu. It had two Twinkies with strawberries, chocolate topping and whipping cream. We made them for dessert. I'm not sure the chocolate added anything, hard to believe I can say that since I'm a true chocoholic.
