Two Dollar Curb Art

You know the song "Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend" from the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blonds? It's iconic.

Marilyn Monroe prefers Diamonds. We prefer the diamonds in the rough that we find at the Curb. 

To us "The Curb is a Girls Best Friend".

Welcome to Crazy Town (My Garage Sale)

This past weekend I had a garage sale. The last time I had a garage sale was over three years ago. Yeah I know, can you imagine how much crap was in my garage? 

Here was my ad.

Garage Sale
Saturday - Sunday 7:00 AM - ?
Vintage Items, Antiques, Household Decor, Furniture, etc.
Priced to go! I need room in my garage! I can't take it anymore!

Pretty standard, right?

I am normally going to garage sales not hosting them so I had forgotten what it was like to be on the other side. So here are my own observations and stories about some..not all..of the people who came to my garage sale.

We wanted to send out a warning about a situation that happened to us last week.

Last week we were posting our projects to link parties we participate in every week. As we were scrolling through the projects that linked up we ran across this picture, which is our project, with a completely different title, "Moroccan Inspired Bench". Hmmm...

Hello Lover

Where have you been all my life? 
Waiting for me by the curb? Oh no, that's so sad. I know it is lonely out there. I will take you in.

HELLO Sunshine!

The last two weeks it has rained here everyday. I feel so blah when it rains all the time. Luckily, this past weekend was absolutely beautiful! The humidity was gone and the breeze was warm but crisp. I was inspired by the sunshine so I repainted a huge sun mirror that was in the dining room and hung it over the daybed outside. Don't worry it is plastic so if it starts raining again it will be just fine.
