Warm and Sunshine on Saturday

Saturday proved to be a beautiful day. I think I heard it got up to 69, so needless to say nothing got done around the house, because I had to go play. First stop, the bead show. Had a free pass to get in (normally cost $5 ), so figured I could at least buy $5 worth of beads. As you can see I spent more than $5. After a while there, I decided I had done enough damage to my wallet and left.
My little stash of goodies. Sorry about the bad picture, as the light was reflecting off the plastic bags.

After lunch and a few other stops, I ended up with a "new to me" table and chairs for my courtyard. Best part - it was Free ! Yep! Could not beat the price. Since I was going to get a new set this Spring anyway, I saved some big money and don't feel so guilty about the splurge at the bead show. There was one catch - the person who gave the set to me wanted it moved ASAP. Big problem - There was no way it was going to fit in my car. But all ended well, as I was able to get someone with a truck to help out and it is now setting in my courtyard. Cloudy and dreary today, so will get some pictures on a day with sunshine and post another time.

Oh - The Weather: It is 62 as I sit here typing this, and the high Wednesday will only be 34. :(

The deadline for the giveaway here, is Midnight Central time, Wednesday night.

Welcome to the new readers . I am way behind in visiting around in the land of blog, and hope to get caught up a bit in the near future.
Have a great week!

Free is good! Sounds like a great day. It was in the 30's here this weekend and my hsuband was out washing the cars! We have a horrible winter storm heading our way...I really hope they are wrong with what they say is coming in the next couple days!

I'm yelling "YEE HAWWW!!" for you my friend! Not only did you get rid of that snow that wouldn't go away! You also scored a free pass and bling a ding at the show AND a free table chair set AND it was delivered for you??!! I'd say that's one blessed day!! Not that they all aren't *winks* But some days are extra special blessed and I think you had one! Vanna

Glad to hear you were able to get the table and chairs back home...can't pass up a bargain like that. Looks like you were successful at the bead show. Your haul should be keeping you busy for awhile.

Glenda, you got some fabulous beads. I can only imagine how you felt with the "new" chairs for your court yard.. What a score for you!!! I'm sitting here waiting for blizzard conditions to move, they are saying we could get up to 19". I sooooo hope they are wrong. You enjoy your great weather girl..
