Whew—We’ve Been Busy Again

Saturday was the bi-annual North Ranch garage sale—lots of North Ranch people participate and tons of people come in to shop from the surrounding areas. 

IMG_0279Photo is from the garage sale last spring but it gives you an idea of how many people turn out for this event!  I was very pleased with my finds—old Pyrex bowls, Corning Ware bowls with lids and the biggest score—a 7.5 foot pre-lit Christmas tree for $20!!!!!—I’ve been searching the internet for a reasonable priced Christmas tree with no success—the prices range from $200 and up, way up!!   The cowboy purchased some tools, a bar stool, wire and who knows what else!  A successful day!

Saturday afternoon Barry was pressed into service helping Michael mount two sets of the upper cabinets.  I painted—again, but today I finished!!  The living room, kitchen and dining/sun room are all painted and look fabulous!  Tonight Michael and I cleaned up, re-installed the switch plates, duct covers, etc., and moved the furniture into the living room—we loved it!!!  A bit more furniture than we needed but it works—when I get everything cleaned I will take some photos. 

So, we’ve been working hard—but it’s all coming together!



  1. Can't wait to see the photos of your house. It's sounding fabulous! I've been searching for a pre-lit tree too! really scored and I'm jealous.

  2. Good hear you can now sit back a little and enjoy your hard work:)

  3. Looking forward to those photos... with the tree all lit up!

  4. LOVED hearing about your GSing!! SCORE!! You new house sounds fabulous! Can't wait for the pics!

  5. Such a great find on the tree - I'm sure it will be the perfect addition to the new place. And I can't wait to see it all done!
