Great Garage Sale Find

My husband and I were out Saturday doing our usual shopping for treasures at garage sales. At our last stop - I walked around the corner of the house and found THIS sign hanging on the fence!! Now this is a real treasure - it has my name on it and I love to garden! Of course they were not planning on selling it, their father had made it in memory of their mother, now both were in heaven. I was disappointed but surely understood but a few minutes later they said they would sell it to me. Yippee! Now it's proudly displayed on my porch.

Decided to join the party at Southern Hospitality today for Thrifty Monday. There are a ton of people participating today so be sure and visit.

Warm wishes,


  1. Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting. I love your sign. What a wonderful story to go with it. I often think when people tell me a story that goes along with the item I've purchased, it's like the memory is being passed on and new memories are created that incorporate the story.

  2. WOW! That's perfect! Now tell me . . . what are the odds?
    Lucky you! Enjoy!

  5. A perfect find! I know you will love it!

  6. How nice that they sold it to you! Now instead of a lonely reminder of loss, it is gracing a new place and gathering more happy memories!

  7. What are the odds? Good for you. Thats a great sign, in more ways than one. You are truly blessed.

    Please stop by and say hello.
