I mentioned in an earlier post that Ben graduated last Saturday from college. It was a very long day. I was up at 5:15 a.m. and we left the house at 7. We had an hour and a half drive (each way) to Corvallis. We spent pretty much the whole day in graduation mode...ceremony, picnic lunch with family (which I planned and was in charge of) and just hanging out. We got home about 6:30 and I was a tired gal.
About 8 as I was contemplating pajamas and bed, the phone rang.
It was a girlfriend getting ready for a garage sale. She was sorting her mother's things and had a bunch of vintage Christmas if I wanted to come take a look. A quick burst of energy coursed through my weary bones...I was out the door in a matter of minutes.
Vintage Christmas will give anyone a second wind!
A huge assortment of nice old ornaments and some bubble lights.
A vintage Santa, old holiday plates and tin Christmas light reflectors.
A flock of vintage bird clips with spun glass tails. I think the smiling ornament is Raggedy Ann.
I then came home and collapsed in bed...visions of sugarplums danced in my head.
