Dilapidated Utility Trailer

Many years ago we purchased a utility trailer for farm and work use.  Since then we have:

- used and abused it
- painted it
- weathered it
- repaired it
  - bungee corded together it
- broken the electrical lines to the lights on it
(sheet metal thrown in randy-pandy-like act as Edward Scissor Hand's blades)

and finally we have ridden ourselves of it

To make the deal 'sweeter' we sold it loaded with scrap metal

The rusted out hitch and frame was the only thing worth salvaging

Pocketed:  $155

Seeing the old thing eye sore rattle down the road AWAY from our farm:  Priceless

Tumbled Beach Rocks

Hubby and I spent a week RVing on the Oregon coast the beginning of June.  It rained most of the time, but we had a terrific time.

One of the spots we found was Hug Point Caves in Cannon Beach, OR.  I'll share later about the caves, but for now I wanted to share with you pictures of the tumbled beach rocks.

 Such interesting 'stuff' from the ocean

Get a load of the monochromatic pattern

No rock pile is free from me building an inuksuk and leaving it for someone to find,
and hopefully add their own 'little man'

This one turned out to be short and stout :o)

Garage Sale Finds

On Saturday, after HOURS of doing chores around the farm, hubby and I started out in search of garage sales ... at 2:00 pm!  We figured that nothing of merit was left, but people may be more prone to cut their prices late in the day.  Here are the few things we bought.
Home-made soap with essential oils --- 2 for $5.00
I enjoy good bars of soap

 Although I possess a complete aversion to vermin ... I love this movie.  I've been looking for it at a garage sale for a long time.  She had the xbox game out on her sale table for sale, and after she heard how sad I was that it was a game and not the movie, she went off into her house and brought out the DVD.

 She also had these perfect-shape dollar store stuffies.  For my grand babies room, of course.
10 cents each

 Oh boy, are there ever a lot of kids clothes at garage sales.  I scored this little swim suit for $1.00.  I have to quit getting stuff for the grand baby.  She still has a month and a half yet to go before she even arrives into this world!

 Moving sales are the best for getting stuff like lawn care products.  Three unopened bags for $2.00.  Enough to refresh my front yard at least.

 Nice basket --- 25 cents

 And finally a curly legged end table.  I hope to one day paint it a shade of white and put it in between the twin beds ... when Genius decides to move out.
