Here we go again!

Greetings! How is your week going? While I’ve been busy at work, my husband and girls have been purging and preparing for a garage sale which happens Friday and Saturday at our house.
 They've also managed to hit an estate sale or two.
I've been on the hunt for more blowmold planters and this swan was another fun rescue and she's now quite happy nestled near our tiny backyard pond.
 Gotta love a husband who isn't afraid to purchase swan blowmolds and dollhouse furniture without his wife.  Yes.  I do have more dollhouse furniture than most people have real furniture, but I can justify my collections because I do have several empty dollhouses.  hee hee.
 No lake time for us girls this weekend, but Chris will be supervising the installation of 3 new slider doors on the lake-side of the A-frame on Monday.  
Can't wait to have slider doors that seal properly and leave Mother Nature outside.
He'll also be painting the rest of the non-sliding doors at the Aframe this deep red.  Boy, I love my handy husband!
 Be sure to take time to play this weekend, friends.

Good luck with the garage sale purge. I'll be doing the same thing except in 100 plus heat! That swan looks strangely familiar....

Good luck on the garage sale! Wow such great dollhouse furniture! I never come across that at sales. Ever! So many wonderful things happening at the lake house. It looks sooo great!!!

Are you allowed to shop estate sales when you're purging your own stuff? :) I have plans to have a sale in a few weeks, so I'm "trying" to hold off on estate sales, but it's sooooo hard!

Lynn said...

Lovin' that wooden doll house furniture! Good luck with the yard sale:@)

Sounds like your hubby and girls are having fun while you're working! :) There so thoughtful to buy you such great things though. Cute dollhouse furniture, I want to see which house you end up putting them in. Hope your garage sale went well. We are going to have one of July 4th and hope it goes well.
Take care,
Gina

I spotted that dollhouse furniture right away in your car! Let's see those empty dollhouses you've got sitting around! (I'm one to talk though, because I've got several houses I haven't shown on the blog yet...) Hope you guys are having a successful garage sale- it always feels so good to clear things out!
