Well, while you're drinking your tea and eating your crumpets, please think of me. I will be crying my eyes out, slaving away in my garage, working my fingers to the bone...all so that we can trick some people into buying our junk. Yes, yes, yes, we're having a garage sale. Can you tell how much I loooove having garage sales? I like them just about as much as I like having my eyebrows waxed. It kills me while it's happening, but I SURE DO like the results after.
So, during the Royal Wedding commercials, here is a fun link for you. Here are the Wackiest Royal Wedding Souvenirs. My favorite? the tea bags. The creepiest? Tie between the bedding and the nail decals. The Funniest? The royal mug...with the WRONG brother's picture! The Most Awkward Conversation Piece? The refrigerator. Enough said. Most nostalgic? The replica engagement ring--My great Aunt Mae bought one back in 1981 before Princess Diana's wedding. I was 11 at the time and thought it was the most beautiful ring in the world. I just loved trying it on!!! (Ginny, do you remember?)
Card Baskets: What a WONDERFUL IDEA!! I first saw the idea of a card basket on Kristen's We are THAT Family blog. Kristen is asking for people to send cards to Heather of Especially Heather blog. Heather's sweet daughter Emma went to be with Jesus on Good Friday. Click here to add a card to Heather's card basket. DaySpring is picking up the cost. They just want people to send encouraging messages to Heather. Look to the right of the page to see a short video tutorial on DaySpring's Card Baskets. Maybe you know someone who could use some encouragement today. Wouldn't a Card Basket be a heartwarming surprise?
Need some extra prayers? Then click on over to Stuff Christians Like to read what Jon wrote about Grandmothers who Love Jesus. Evidently, his own Jesus-loving grandmother told him last Christmas that she reads every comment on his blog, and PRAYS for every single person. Can you imagine? I'd like to know a lady like that!!! And I'd surely love for her to pray for me! You betcha I left a comment!
Well, that's all she wrote, folks. Think of me this weekend as I'm trying not to get eye contact with our garage sale customers. See, eye contact = questions. And, I'm not allowed to negotiate with any customers. I tend to give whole boxes and bags of junk garage sale items away. So, you can understand why my husband has banned me from setting prices or chatting with customers. *grin* I'll be the mute one in the corner, taking the money...and making very "helpful" runs to Sonic when necessary.
Happy weekend, dear readers! Let's plan to meet back here Monday and chat about our weekends! I sure hope yours includes at least a bon bon or two...
What are your weekend plans?
