The kids and I went garage-saling for a while today...there is an upscale development near us that was having community-wide sales, so we thought we'd try it out.

Although we didn't find a living-room set (I was hoping to upgrade ours!), we did find some stuff. Here are a few of our 'treasures'...
^Abigail got a scooter. She was very coordinated with it right away -- and it's great therapy for her left leg, which does all of the pushing!
^David got some new sandbox trucks...always a happy thing. He spends a lot of time in the sandbox.
^A bed frame for Abigail's room...these are just the tops of the posts (it's a white four-poster). The footboard needs a little TLC at the joints before we set it up and then I will post a picture of it when it's put together in her room!
^The copper pitcher and the frosted-purple glass grape-thing on top, as well as the little copper piece on the bottom right (it has a grape design), are new. I want to paint my kitchen plum and taupe, with a grape theme and purple and copper these were fun finds.
^My favorite find of the day! A beautiful, sturdy, big copper bowl hammered with grapes, grape vines, and leaves.

I also got a looks-like-new sewing chair (the office-type whose height adjusts etc), but it doesn't make for a very interesting picture, so I skipped it. :)

(And yes, my good camera is still missing...)

What fun and they look beautiful-the kids look happy with their treasures, too!
