Early Morning Blogging

Well, here it is at 5:30 am on Saturday and I have been awake now for about 2 hours. I haven't been sleeping for beans lately. I fall asleep fine, just can't seem to stay asleep! Sure wish I could find a way to sleep better without taking drugs!

Anyway,  I mentioned in my last post that I went to a sweet estate sale last Friday. It was held at a house on a main road, one that Rich and I have driven by many times...and we always noticed because it had two huge garages that faced each other. Plus it was professionally decorated at Christmas and always looked so pretty! We also noticed that whoever lived there was a car nut and there was old cars and neon car signs in the windows of the garage.

Anyway, I just happened to be driving by on Friday and noticed a Estate Sale sign...oh. and a ton of people parked on the side of the road too! So of course I stopped could I not?

Anyway, this is what I picked up:

PYREX bowl for 50¢

Brand new red tablecloth

Cute necklace and earring set!This I am keeping to wear. 

Necklace to use for beads

More beads

Gorgeous faux diamond necklace. I'm not sure what I'm doing with this yet. 

Matching earrings

And this little purse

Total spent: $9!

Someone was a collector because there was a ton of decorative plates and a whole table full of Lenox bird figurines, which were really nice and only $25 each. I have enough stuff I've collected over the years though, so I passed.

LOVE when I come across these kind of sales. I walked around for a good half hour!

On Sunday, Rich and I hiked a trail at Maybury State Park. This was at the entrance

Maybury Sanatorium

There was a horse trail, too. 

We walked to and around this pretty little lake. I don't know how far we walked but it took us about a hour and a half, up and down hills. It was a great work out!

Time to go back to bed to see if I can get another hour or so of sleep, but I'm not getting my hopes up. It's probably going to be a tired day, today!

Oh and see the new header pic? I love the way the fall wreath looks against the red door!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Melatonin is a natural sleep aid. We lose melatonin as we age (I'm not saying you are old) and my doc recommended it. Seems to work for me unless my mind is over cluttered with stuff that I can't turn off.

Well--I entirely forgot to say that you got some neat stuff and I do love that wreath. is that your front door?

Oh, I'm so sorry you're not sleeping well. That stinks. Hope you were able to get a few more winks in so you can enjoy the weekend.

You always find the best stuff! Love everything, and the red tablecloth; the color is so pretty.

LOVE your wreath on the door, it looks beautiful.

Love ya!

(No baby yet.) :)
