Summer time- perfect time- for finding great stuff!

I love everything about summer! The grilling outdoors, no messy kitchen to attend to. Soft breezy days, and I especially love staying up later. After all, it doesn't get dark until 10:00- I've even gone on a coon hunt through the orchard with my hubby! Course all that walking and crisp, night air tires me out sooner than it used to.

But, another great thing about summer...Garage sales! Seriously, like on any given weekend you can find one yard after another filled with 'stuff'. You know what they say. One man's junk...another man's treasure.

Here's a few things I've managed to add to my collection.

You may remember awhile back when I found the darling Wicked Witch doll- designed by Madame Alexander dolls especially for MacDonalds. Well, you can imagine my delight when I hit upon these two.

The Scarecrow

                                  And Cowardly Lion....

The search is on for the Tin-man and Dorothy. I'll get you, my pretty....and your little dog too!

Another part of summer I really enjoy is to sit on the porch swing and do absolutely nothing.

Except play around.  This is a handmade paddle with chicks that heads bob up and down at the corn in the middle.

Here's a table someone's taken the time to hand paint a floral design on. The neat thing about this is that the top is removable, so it can be used as a tray.

And added more dishes to my collection: by Royal- The Old Curosity Shop

Just in case I need reminded which steak is rare and which one is well done....
These little wooden picks.  Aren't they adorable?

Well, there's still plenty of days to summer. I plan to enjoy every single one. And I hope you do too!
