Thoughts of Grandeur!

I enjoy yard sales so much as a lot of us do.  This weekend was a bit of a challenge! So me and my mom. (My best buddy)  went out as we always do.  We were so excited because we didn't know if we would be able to get to them all. So it began, (  Thoughts  of grandeur! I wonder what will we find?)  It's kinda like a child's Christmas never knowing what is in the boxes, bags or wrappings!

We started the day off okay, the neighborhood communities were all participating in the neighborhood sale.  Each one we went to had lots of kids toys, and children's clothes.  Oh and cribs, car seats, play yards, oh my!  Well that is great if you have that in mind to purchase.  But, every house seem to have gotten the memo!  " Only put out the children's things! Do not forget the clothes for the children! "  I can hear the echo from the mega phone from the person responsible for setting up the community sale. I can see them as they ran from house to house making sure each house  knew what to put out for the sale. The sound keeps echoing in my ear. " Don't forget the children's clothes!"
  I seem to be complaining.  No,  just a mental note for myself,  to keep my dreams a little less filled with excitement, as to not get my hopes dashed when that is what we find for the day, when out at the yard sales.
 Okay, after many ( and I mean many) yard sales this is my new finds. 
Hope you enjoy!
