Gifts from Garage Sale Gal and an award…

0712 005
On Friday evening, Deb from Garage Sale Gal stopped by with her husband Pat. It was great to meet a local fellow blogger. Deb brought me a beautiful set of note cards and note book, and being a fellow animal lover she brought treats for my gal Lollie…extremely generous. Not only do Deb and I love garage sales, flea markets, estate sales, thrift shopping and dogs…we are both chocolate lovers. Deb is an antique dealer and rents space at two local shops. Thanks Deb!

Hi Renee!
Thank you so much for the award! I've been practicing my word for 2009.....contentment...and I think attitude and gratitude has a LOT to do with contentment!
Thanks for stopping by and for this wonderful honor!

Well, I'm flattered you thought of me! I don't think I'll ever have another garage sale either. I'd rather put it at the curb and not have the stress and hassle!
