I Like Thursday # 59
Let's get started shall we?
I like Mums in the Fall! These were on sale today at ACE for $2 a pot. I got 4 colors!
I liked this Halloween display on a house near me
I Like finding treasures while excavating the basement.
9 things to love about Tampa... all that and a flamingo on the shoulder!
And this one made for Christmas
And this one because not only do I love the image
I like seeing some "negative space" in the basement again, and in the upstairs, as we get rid of stuff we no longer need. It's hard to accept a "mis-purchase" so I just store the item instead of admitting it didn't pan out. We no longer have that luxury so we gave lots away, sent better stuff to donations including Habitat for Humanity. We had a yard sale...
OMG! After the last yard sale bust my husband had me swear on a Bernina that I would never put him through that again. Then I said one more... gotta try. It is a sad 5 hours, putting stuff from inside your home that you bought and liked, out on the lawn for random strangers to paw through... and often reject. We made 10's of dollars but the important thing was, we moved stuff we couldn't move to Colorado out, and someone took it that wanted it.
For instance an art teacher took 12 stencils for 3 bucks... never used, each one probably cost at least $5 but she will use them with students. Someone was elated to see a set of flatware in a holder for $5. We under charged but then we are exhausted and wanted someone to have it. We've stored it for maybe 10 years!
We met some lovely people and because I chat and want to know everyone's "story" it was fun to meet some very entertaining sorts. We boxed up a load for goodwill and put the rest in the front yard again. It all disappeared except for a few items.
Milo had a great time visiting. He is too mouthy though and scares people. He doesn't bite down but he puts his mouth on them, and if you know how to break him of that, please tell me.
I liked this flat bread by itself or holding sandwich fixin's
Monika let me know the Durells of Corfu was starting on PBS, so I watched a favorite show again! Yea!
I was excited to see "finding your roots" also back on PBS.
I love an ancestry show,. and this one takes three well known personalities and traces their roots back often to each other! Last night Mary Steenbergen and William H Macy found out they were 6th cousins!
I'm still reading the same book because I read at night and fall asleep after three pages.
I did check this scrap quilting book out of the library and absolutely love it.
I like the cooler temps we've had this week.
I liked watching most of season 4 Great British Sewing Bee shows and look forward to tomorrow morning and the finale. You have to google it as it's not all in one site. I couldn't find them all but found many.
Milo showed his real spirit this week
