Going To Garage Sales

I wish that I could make the time early on a Saturday morning to get out to more garage sales.
I was driving around one Sunday about to give up on finding a garage sale when I stummbled upon this place. I had just discovered my love for all things vintage the night before (after wine and conversations with a friend of mine).

Here is the result of my first garage sale find ~ not bad for $20....
Well it could have been cheaper but she managed to get $10 out of me for the eclectic little shelf unit. I was pretty excited to have stumbled across this place. I think it was $1 for the funky case ~ which now houses the kids playdoh.

She Sells Sea Shells By The Sea Shore

... I tend to think alot.

Some people meditate to clear their mind, but to me there is nothing more refreshing and mind cleansing than a long stroll on the beach collecting a bag full of sea shells. The kids run ahead and I stroll at my leisure. The sun on my skin, the cool breeze, the sounds of the waves, the smells of the sea. This satisfies all of my senses and I am at a place of true peace. This is a time when my mind does nothing more than spend time hunting for the perfect shell.

I love sea shells. I maybe love sea shells a little too much. I really think I am creating a comfortable place in this world of ours as a hobbyist for collecting sea shells. Here is the very pretty swag from my last beach visit.

So I guess this blog is about me and my love for shells amoungst the other things I love to love.
