hot day in yard sale land!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

man oh man…it was a scorcher today and i was all about a bunch of yard sales!!! the sad truth…they were not that good. i found limited things or items that were waaaayyyy too expensive. i found two chenille bedspreads at one of the yard sales today….white…stained and not even that fabulous!!! uuuuuhhhh $25 a piece!!! i just looked at the lady and said “oh, i find chenille blankets like that at g.w. for $3. and i do. i walked away shaking my head. i don’t get it. when did yard sales become antique boutiques?????

sooooo, i was close to my friend marta’s place on 190 in nolanville/belton texas and i decided to pay her a long overdue visit. she has her own category now on my side bar. you can click there to see other photos as well. marta is super talented and the vignette queen! her displays are just amazing and her furniture is ‘yummy’ as she says. WOW…her shop looks great……………COME ON IN AND SEE!!!!!!

she will roll her eyes for this picture below, but i still love even the cool junk she has on the outside of the store. the inside…well…that’s fancy but not pretentious at all. her prices are great and she’s so much fun to talk to. please stop by her store if you are ever in the area! it will be a treat you won’t forget.
