Some days, or should I say weeks, are just sooooo busy.  I don't have enough days in the week to accomplish all that I want to do.  I wanted to start weeding my garden and the weeds have already gotten the best of me.  Maybe I'll start next week.

I had a fun 2 days garage saleing/rummage hunting for treasures.  I did find some fabric and little treasures, but was most excited to find a large wrought iron plant stand at a garage sale for $5.  It was filled with old plants that I didn't want, so I was allowed by the owner to dump them in her garden since I was only after the plant stand.  I have seen them for upwards of $45 so I was very excited to find one at a small price.  Before I find a use for it in my garden, I'm going to use it for having a backyard party.  It would be nice holding plates and napkins or something handy like that.  I also found another black iron stand at an estate sale for $10.  I have always been wanting one.  It's funny how that one was more money than the larger one.  I haven't figured out what I will use the smaller one for, but it probably won't be for just holding fruit.  Or it might.....I'm not sure yet.  I haven't had time to play around with ideas for it. 

I just found out that on June 21st is the Belvidere night flea market that is from 4pm to midnight.  I went last year at around 4pm and found some really nice items.  It's on my calendar already.  Thursday is a church rummage sale on Bull Valley Rd close to Crystal Lake Avenue in McHenry.  It starts at 10am.  Friday is a church rummage sale on Walkup Ave in Crystal Lake starting at 8am.  On May 10th is the vintage market in Rockford at the Midway Village Museum.  There are a lot of garden club plant sales coming up.  Be sure to check them out for great prices. 

Happy treasure hunting!  Only about 1 month before the Elkhorn and Cedarburg Wisconsin flea markets.  I'm counting down.
