Weekend Finds

Hello Friends!  Hope your weekend was long enough (mine sure wasn’t – I don’t think it ever is!).  I mentioned last Friday that I had a few engagements that happen to fall on the same day.  I decided not to attend either event on Sunday because I really felt that I needed some rest.  One of the events I was to attend was an Art Show.  After some research, I found out that it was going to be held again in a few weeks.  Yeah!  Maybe I will be able to attend then.  I just love looking at what people have created.  I get such a fun, warm, happy feeling when I go to these shows!

On Saturday, I went to a Mom 2 Mom sale in my town.  Never heard of a Mom 2 Mom sale?  Oh, they are sooo wonderful!  Moms bring in gently used items (clothes, toys, books, maternity clothes, you name it) and sell them at discounted prices.  I took my oldest daughter and found some really cute stuff.  One item I immediately fell in love with, was this colorful elephant rocker…

I strictly bought it because it made me happy.  I thought that maybe when my youngest daughter was old enough to ride it, she might take a liking to it.  I had no expectations that my oldest daughter would even care about it, but much to my surprise she loves it.   Lunch was even served with her on the rocker.

What I also found interesting at the sale was a woman that was extremely attached to the items she was selling.  I happen to come across a really cute cardigan (by Oilily) that she had marked $4.50.  It looked brand new and felt really luxurious.  With so many bags in my hand and my daughter at my feet,  I asked her if she would take $4 as I happen to just have that in my hand (I was in no mood to dig for the 0.50 cents in my purse).  Did I mention how crowded these events are?  The woman took a hold of the cardigan and began explaining that she had paid $40 for it and that her daughter never wore it.  I listened patiently, waiting for the answer to my question.  “It’s really hard for me to sell these things…” and on she went.  After a few moments, she said “I can’t go below $4.25″.  OMG!  I set my stuff down, took my purse, and gave her 0.50 cents.  Here’s the cardigan…

As I mentioned last Friday, I have an interview scheduled with artist Talitha Shipman that will be posted this Wednesday.  Stop by to check it out – your gonna love her artwork!
