Imagine my delight when I came upon an unadvertised yard sale sign
pointing the way to a country home in an older development.
Turns out the home owner had died unexpectedly - the house was sold quickly -
and the contents needed to be unloaded. Thus - a last minute yard sale...
where everything was going cheap. We were told to look in cabinets,
drawers and everywhere. It felt very strange and invasive - gave me
mixed feelings for sure. There wasn't a lot left when I arrived -
but these are some of my favorite finds that others overlooked...

Apparently 'Barbara' lived in this house - judging from the
sentiments on the senior photos she saved.
And Barbara was well-liked...
In fact - she had a special admirer!
"To the Most beautiful girl of the senior class"...
"When are we going on our date?"...
Did she marry "Ken" I wonder?
In the box of recipes - I found a little handmade recipe booklet from the 70s.
It contained cookie recipes - put together from a neighborhood exchange.
I love that idea! My neighborhood is not that 'close'. Maybe I need to work on that!
To round out my pleasant morning... I came upon this guy -
standing right up at the roadside fence. When I got close to take
a picture - he started to get a little ornery, 'huffed' at me and I saw
his front hoof begin to do motions... I got out of there!
I'll leave you with a cookie recipe as a last nod to 'Christmas in July'...
Now I need to get some cleaning done.
How did you spend your Saturday morning? ~Joyce
