The fog was thick this morning when we left to see what treasures I could find at the few garage sales that were advertised. I love this soft scarf and gloves that I found. The people at all four ( or maybe five) garage sales, were so cheerful and friendly.  We even met one woman and her grown daughter
 ( who was the one having the gs) who had bought the house we had built and were selling  in 1978, just before we began building this house,  that we've lived in the longest of all our homes!!

I love this botanical travel mug. It is a china cup.  I dislike drinking out of plastic.

The illustrations by Holland's famous Rien Poortvliet in this fanciful book about gnomes are superb.

Last of all we got this jigsaw puzzle. 1000 pieces.... should take a good long while to finish!!
We'll keep it for winter evenings I think.

Once the fog cleared up we had a fairly nice day. Got some more Hostas cut down, and tomorrow we will cut down more. Have to do it more slowly than we used to but it gets done.  Getting things tidied up for the winter months that surely will come

  1. I especially love the Gnomes book and the puzzle for those long winter evenings! It's so great that you got to meet the people who now live in your old house. How interesting! Have a great rest of your weekend! :)
