One person's junk is another person's treasure.

 Hubby, talking to our son on our way home from church: "Derrick, help me clean the backyard, okay? We need to get rid of some 'junk' ".
Son: "Junk? How can we get rid of junk when Mom keeps buying other people's junk?" (He's referring to the garden furnitures ~pictured here~ I got from a yard sale yesterday. There's another one, a bench...it's in my front yard right now.)
Hubby: "Oh...thank you for asking! I was afraid to ask that! Both looked at me and laughed! More of a nervous laugh...or chuckle.
Me: "Ahh...excuse me... Those will be pretty in the backyard. In the garden, you'll see. Plus...remember?...one person's junk is another person's treasure.

So, that being said...I'm having a yard sale (hopefully) this week end! I keep promising my husband that I'll drop off the donation stuff, (some already boxed and ready) and get rid of my junk other stuff to make room in the garage. My things in the cabinet he built for me in the garage (which was supposed to be my craft area)a few years ago and more things in the the desk drawers, in my bedroom, family room and just about everywhere in our house,  are now being moved to my now "craft room". Well, I have been doing that the last few weeks or so. Slowly...but it's coming along just fine.

This empty nest syndrome has given me "an excuse" to convert my kid's game room, ( it's just a small one) into my craft room. It's coming together now...and I'm so excited! And it's just perfect timing, too, because Karen of My Desert Cottage has just announced her upcoming blog party ( the 3rd annual Where Bloggers Create party) next month (July 15th) and I'm going to join in the fun! You might want to party along, too! Check it out for details.
 Okay...I better get back to work now! Still have a lot more work to do.
Oh, by the way, don't you like my "new" garden furniture? I can't wait to pretty-it-up!

Well, thanks for stopping by! Have a beautiful day!
