We aren't really looking for ourselves, as he is trying to sell some things on eBay as a side business. We don't actually advertise that, as some antique dealers wax eloquent about how eBay has killed the antique market. Oops. So I got my china for a price I could afford, instead of a price I would be afraid to eat off of! yay for eBay LOL
However, my formal dining room is now so covered in finds to sell on eBay and I can hardly SEE my shiny buffet hutch with my glittery new china so carefully arranged in it! I am sure I will appreciate it much more when I reap the benefits of our hours and hours of looking for bargain treasures. Basically, we have found, the uglier it is, the more money people will pay for it.
case in point:
G is on vacation this week, and our week is already stuffed full! I love being busy :) it sure beats twiddling your thumbs.
We packed our Saturday so full~ it was a grand day. Hit an Indian buffet for lunch. Kyle wouldn't try anything but fruit, but the rest of us chowed down and were so full they nearly had to roll us out. then we visited my sister and the boys went on a city bus for the first time in their memories (they'd been on in Calgary, but were too young to remember) They couldn't wipe the smiles off their faces at the thought of STANDING on a moving vehicle! We just went downtown so they could see their uncle at work, but they were glowing all night about their bus ride. Then we went and visited with G's parents and brothers and Arlene for a bit and headed home.
I hope our week is as fun as Saturday was!

I am having a get together at my house on Saturday. Sort of an open house, since Mom and Rebecca are here, so people can come say Hi and have a hot dog or whatever. Funny how a simple plan like that can be so much work! So many people want to help, which I so appreciate, but I am having a hard time accepting help. I have been self- sufficient for so long now I forget what it is like to be having people offer their assistance! I even have a photographer coming to take some photos of Mom with her grandkids, sister and bros, etc. I am just praying for no rain that day! Last year in May we had TWO rainy days. TWO. and this year, I have barely seen the sun the whole month hahaha.
Mom with some of her grandkids:
