It was beautiful yesterday on our drive up to the lake....
The foliage is changing color and autumn is upon us in all its glory...
We stopped at a farm stand where we found the white pumpkins I love so much... ....you know how I feel about orange!
Not far past the farm stand we saw a sign that said BARN SALE..... ....Miraculously, Rob agreed to make the turn and follow the signs to the sale..
There really wasn't too much there but I spied this old set of metal drawers marked $3 and I knew I had to have it... I also knew Rob would make "that face"... So while he was looking over the old John Wayne videos...I gave the elderly gentleman the $3 for the 17 drawers... (so what if one is missing...no problem!)
It all worked out fine after a few negotiations (with Rob)... As a bonus (?) one of the drawers even came full of rusty nuts and bolts!
My ever so cooperative and agreeable husband also stopped at one of my favorite antique shops along the way and I found this old tin...Smith's White Fruit Cake....how appropriate...
It was a happy fall Saturday and after we arrived at the lake house, I kept up my end of the bargain and we even got a lot of outside work done!
Hope your weekend was good....Getting ready for another week of work! Take care, Laura :)
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
