I recently attended a friends' moving/yard sale.
The furniture had been moved to storage so
everything on the first floor was for sale.

Cute scarves...

I love this print..Waiting for attention from the boss.
Everyone waiting for his turn to ask his question
or present his idea..

This is nice as well..pardon the reflection.

She took the doors off of her cabinets..
everything inside was for sale.

 She is a size 0-2..xsmall/petite
That is not a very common size around here.

The yard sale was to be spread  over three weekends.
The last weekend was to include this..
Certainly a daunting task just to go through
 it much less taking it upstairs.

My suggestion was to go through it looking for anything of value and then....
call the junk man or a flea market person to take everything!!!

 I think that is going to be the plan..there was only a week left .
There are some storage tubs under all of that
with some good linens and other keepers.

 I hope things work out without causing too much more stress.
It's hard to do all that when one is by ones self,
 moving across the country, has way too much stuff and a basement that looks like this....Yikes!!

PS...She went through it all and took it upstairs.
No more yard sales.
 Flea market people were called and finally a guy who
cleans out houses. After one truck load, he left.
The dumpsters were full..the house empty and she's on her way to 
Maine for some much needed R&R.
Then it's off to Oregon to live near her son and grandchildren.
A new chapter !!
 Good luck dear friend...I will miss you.

I was going through my pictures recently and had to laugh.
This is my silly sister and her just as silly husband
in the middle of a Mall somewhere.

This one makes me sad because Jazz is no longer with us..
It makes me smile because Mollie would always 
grab the end of her leash as if to take her for a walk.

The sweetness in this picture makes me smile.
Tyler loves his cousin.

Such a ham!! How can you not smile?

I remember the bewilderment of this Chippie
trying to figure out how to get out of this feeder.

This beauty makes me smile.
The bulbs were given to me by a dear friend 
who has moved away, which makes me a little sad.

I hope there is something in your day that makes you smile.

I was surfing thru Etsy a couple  of months ago
 looking for a watercolor that I thought I needed 
to fill an empty spot on my wall.
I came upon a lady in the Ukraine who had some 
adorable pets that she had done.
She's very reasonable and you can pick the size.

So , I sent her this series of pictures.....
(I had to send several of Zoey
 because I don't have a perfect one of her yet.)
And we all know that Mollie is always perfect...

I don't like her eyes in this one..

Awww, but not enough body showing.

I don't like her ears in this one..

I sent this for coloring and size comparison..mostly height.

and after some communicating back and forth,
she came up with this...

It is very difficult to take a picture in this house with no reflection.
I just love it..
Sorry if this is a repeat for my Facebook friends.

Find her on Etsy..under watercolor

When I look out of my kitchen window in the mornings or 
early evenings..This is what I see..

Bunnies everywhere...

Mollie leaves them alone until they move...
then the chase is on..

They spray for weeds here.
There is a big patch of clover near my garden that they
always miss..
1. Maybe because it's on a bit of a curve
and they go back and forth in a straight line...
2. They didn't want to get too close to my garden??
I think it was the first  ;)

The benefit of that patch of clover is that the bunnies
eat the clover and pretty much leave my garden alone.
I hope that practice continues.

This is post #1000 !!!
