My daughter, Amy, and I left early yesterday morning to hit some of the yard sales. We knew we didn't have much time because she had to get back for a birthday party and I was having folks over to watch the game (ROLL TIDE), but we found some pretty neat things in a short time. I got a little blue & gold trinket box that I am going to put in my bathroom (perfect colors) to put cotton balls, Q-tips, or whatever in for $1.00, the white candle holder that is already distressed looking for $1.00, the grapevine wreath for $0.50 (as I started to pay for it--the lady said the person in front of me,who I had never seen, paid for it for me--so it was free), and my favorite find.........an OLD cookbook for $1.00. YES, it was from 1916 and I love cookbooks....it's up on the shelf in my kitchen by the recipe that I framed. That was my catch of the day.
I am so proud of the cookbook. It's in pretty good condition for the age of it.
Please pray for the people along the gulf coast. My son and his family live in Louisiana north of Lake Pontchartrain. They, along with his wife's parents and grandmother, are coming here today. His father-in-law's business is in Metairie (outside of New Orleans) and they lost their lake home three years ago in Bay St. Louis. There are 1,000's of people that are just like them...I can't imagine driving away and not knowing if your home would be there when you return. Pray for safety and also that there will be minimal damage from this storm. God Bless all of you!
