Thanksgiving at Our Cabin and Estate Sale Scores

Thanksgiving was great! Mom and I worked around the kitchen and made a pretty tasty meal. There was a minor disaster when mom dropped the just-from-the-oven sweet potatoes on the floor. The casserole dish did not shatter but there was orange goo everywhere. On the floor, the cabinets, the ceiling and on mom. Other than that, it was wonderful. We packed up dessert and headed out to the cabin. I quite enjoyed my pecan pie while swinging on the porch watching geese fly over the lake. It's so nice spending time with my fam.

A really great estate sale at 9:00 AM is my idea of a perfect "black Friday". Tyler went with me and we came across a pretty good selection of loot.

2 metal porch chairs: $25/chair (a new paint job will be had in the spring)
2 old frames: $4.00 and $6.00 (a little wood and some chalkboard paint)
A pair of peach Yves Saint Laurent vintage shades: $1.00
9 piece aluminum spice rack: $4.00

Certainly beat the mall...however, some people at estate sales can get quite hasty. A pardon me, excuse me every once in a while might be nice? After all, it's only stuff. We do live in Oklahoma and a big twister could take it away in a second. How about some perspective people. Tis' the season to be merry! Remember?

For those of you around Norman, the sale is on Oklahoma east of Classen and will be going on Saturday and Sunday. Loads of stuff. Happy hunting!
Have a wonderful day!
