OK, OK, OK...

So I know I said that the last post was my last one before the trip. But you can't expect me to stay quiet after a day like today can you? So first thing this morning we all packed in and went to a yard sale. We were a little, uh, early. So we helped the people carry some of their stuff out. I basically got to raid all of the boxes before anybody else got there.
Boy did I find some great stuff!


Then we went over to Ronn's wonderful store FUTURES
and I got to buy something I have wanted for years -
the full pink set of mixing bowls! Isn't it wonderful. My collection is still far from complete but it's definitely alot better now that these babies are resting in my china cabinet.

Well this is definitely my last blog before the trip. No really, I promise!
I shall return in a week bearing treasures from the North -
and all that jazz.

P.S. See Ronn, I did go home and blog about it!

Hey Mama,

I KNEW you'd show off your new set of pink mixing bowls (I didn't know you'd found all that other stuff too)!

Mix well and prosper.

Ronn.

PS: I want you all to know that this obsession pulled her entire family out of the house early in the morning into the cold rainy windy weather of Norfolk Virginia on a Saturday. She is NO dilettante!
