Off the map ~

I've been off the map and out of the blog loop for a couple of weeks now, and I've missed it!  Sometimes life gets in the way.  What are you going to do???

We did have a successful garage sale over the weekend.   That in itself kept me busy for several days and nights.  What is it about garage sales that completely drains me, not only physically, but mentally too?  It's taken me two days to recover :)

In all honesty, while it was a lot of work, it was also a lot of fun because I did the sale with friends.  They brought ALL their hoarding to my garage!

Just look at this...

These photos were taken the night before.  We had everything crammed into my garage with hopes of moving lots out to the driveway Friday morning.  The weather was looking a little unpredictable.

Isn't it interesting how much the electronics have changed at garage sales with the constant updating of technology?  We had radios (what's that?), CD players, DVD players (what ever happened to VHS?), computers, etc

And these...everyone still enjoys a good read on paper!

With 7 kids between us, there was no shortage of outgrown clothing and games.

And, all the house decor that needs updating (that's the fun part)!

 And, the holiday pretties! 

These were a steal for the buyers.

Anything left over went to Goodwill or the local Caring Closet.  

Now to re-organize all those closets and drawers that things were pulled from over the past month.  

 Anybody else planning a garage sale this summer?

  1. I get out of the loop sometimes too! Your garage sale looked great! I would have loved to shop there!!

  2. That was one BIG garage sale!! Hope you made a lot of $$! I saw some things I would have bought had I been there! Welcome back. The World of Blog is always here. But sometimes you have to live life in the REAL world you are living in!
