A little Good with the Bad...

Friday late afternoon my Mom and I left for Anchorage.
I was soooo excited .
No kids, no Hubby and no George!
we went out to a lovely dinner
in celebration of my sisters Birthday!!!
did a little thrifting after dinner.
then went back to my sisters for the night.
So this morning we woke up
stopped at atm
everything was great
I can't wait to show you all
my wonderful finds.
when there it was
a garage sale
One of those that you've pulled in
and immediately
you want to leave.
my sister and I get out
and get back in
the truck
Junk I say
is it clear behind I ask the Birthday girl.
45 minutes waiting with the cops
because it was in
an apartment complex
they didn't know where the car owner lived
Blah blah blah
I lost 2 points off my license
for 4 years
$85 ticket for reckless
The owner of the vehicle
walks out
OH my poor car!!

This took the wind right out of my HAPPY sails
until the next thrift store where I found this...
A crazy style throw all done out of polyester clothes !
I loved it
I don't know why..
It ended my Mommy Day perfectly
and I was greeted back home
a little more appreciated as always!
I spent $85
and wait till you see what I got for it.
will post my treasures soon!


  1. Oh poor you!! Lovely to hear there was a happy ending to your day. Can't wait to see what other goodies you discovered. Love your little blanket :)

  2. sorry to hear about the bingle...great blanket though!

  3. Can't wait to see your finds .... and as long as everyone was ok I would not worry too much about the other stuff ... shit happens !!!

  4. So perfectly put, I mean look at that throw and how fabulous I could look with That throw sewn back into a pair of pants!!!!!LOL

  5. You just make me laugh so much, Heidi! That sounds so familiar (the garage sale and the crash). Sorry about the damage to your driving record - that hurts! But, like you say, another good garage sale heals things up a lot! Diane

  6. Oh, Heidi! I'm so sorry about the crash. That will definitely put a damper on an otherwise fun day.

    I'm glad you found some wonderful goodies though.

    Who might win the goodies in my giveaway, as well!

    Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage

  7. You always make lemonade out of lemons, and a fabulous quilt our of polyester shirts :)

    No harm no foul. See you soon!
