Yard Sale Finds!

Hey neighbors!

Not sure how many of you know, but I LOVE to yard sale!  There is nothing better than finding a great buy. So, today while the children were in their Tai Kwon Do class, my husband and I went to some yard sales.

Now here is my first seventy-five cent find.  My daughters really enjoy painting their fingernails.  They like to try designs like flower, ladybugs, stripes, etc.  They even did a cupcake design on my thumbnail the other night.  Of course when I saw a whole tray of nail polish for seventy-five cents, I quickly grabbed it.  They have been planning new designs already!

Next I found some Brown Bag Cookie Art Molds.  These ones are from 1984.  I will have to do a post after we use them, but right now, I am just excited that they were only twenty-five cents a piece and I found three.  Yep, seventy-five cents!  Not bad so far.

A bear, a rocking horse and a pretty heart are the three designs I found.  I am not sure if I will just use them for baking, or if I will also display them.  Have any of my neighbors used any of these type cookie molds before?

The next but was $1, but I have to say it was still a great find.  It is several yards of lace, which we will use sewing!  Yay!  I didn't take any pictures of the lace.

Not bad for about 40 minutes this morning.  I always feel satisfied after finding buys like those!  See you soon neighbors, At the Fence!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
