that time of year has arrived again. woohoo for the virgos in my life!
my hubby turned @# years old this weekend and my daughter turned 27 today. happy, happy birthday to both of you!
as i said last year, it's always a bit of a crunch for me, the birthday maker, having two special birthdays back to back.
but being the sup-p-per troup-p-per that i am, everything fell into place and the birthday boy and girl seemed to have a grand ol' time.
after the celebrating, i usually fall into bed for a week of recovery. just kidding, folks. it's only for a couple of days.
this year was more low-key. maybe because i'm older. maybe others are expecting less from me. i don't know. but i certainly don't feel the intense stress that i have in years past.
blah blah blah. enough about the birthdays.
this weekend i barnstormed and uncovered a few very nifty treasures. an awesome vintage suitcase in great shape, complete with a couple of old travel stickers still on it, one of which is from TCA (trans canada airlines, which was founded in 1936 and became known as air canada in 1965). amazing what you can learn on the interwebs. ;-)
the FAGs and i also hit a yard sale out in the cave, i mean cove, that was fantastic, if you were looking for arts and craft supplies. an art teacher was unloading all her crap and oh. my. gawd. she had some good stuff!
mod podge, stamps, old flash cards, paints and the piece de resistance, a samsonite travel bag CHOCK full of vintage (oldest from 1905-1960s) art books and magazines. i briefly perused them after i got home and they are filled with gorgeous vintage pictures!
made out like a bandit too. my total was $3.50!!
i love it when a plan comes together: junking + FAGs + bargains = happy me.
love and hugs,
