A Preview of August

Wow! What a weekend! It was three days of boxes, lost treasures found, dirt, dust, and finding the remains of unwanted visitors. Once again my daughter, ex-sister-in-law and friend, MJ, and I are joining forces for the 127 Corridor World's Longest Yard Sale. We like to think we have a classy, well-organized sale full of cast off treasures, collectibles and even a few antiques. The yard sale extends from 5 miles north of Addison, Michigan, to Gadsden, Alabama.  This has become such a big thing that HGTV heads out to tape sellers and shoppers alike.  So there's my pitch for the yard sale that begins this Thursday, August 2 and ends Sunday, August 5th.

Sometimes a lady just has to try something new, hence the cut up photo of two coneflower blooms that fought the heat to survive and flourish as best it could.  The flower was planted this spring with great hopes of producing a nice bushy plant, but now I'm just delighted it soldiered through.  By the way...that is the color of the flowers and I just love it. 

August Break!

Yes I'm joining Susannah Conway again this year for The August Break.  There will be a photo most days, but few if any words unless something spectacular  occurs that I just can't keep to myself.  Oh wait...something spectacular did happen over the weekend, but it's too soon to spill the beans. Wanna join the August Break?  Hop over to Susannah's site and check it out. 

Whewwww.... busy weekend shaping up to be a busy week, but ya know busy is good.
