A Found Treasure and Upcoming Giveaway!!

Hello!!  Hope you all are having a great day. We are having a really nice, although warm day.  I'll take it cold weather.  Since my last post way back when, I have been working on cleaning out our attic and organizing for a garage sale.  I have taken many things from my "finds" pile and moved them over to the garage sale pile.  All the while thinking....why on earth did I buy that??  I'm sure some of you have had the same experience.  I am getting much more picky about what I buy to redo.  Live and learn I guess.  Anyway, while cleaning I came across a bag with something in it.  So I pulled it out and found these. 

 They are pewter votive cups.  I kinda forgot that I had them. The price tag was still on them.  Are you ready??  Only $1 for them all.  They need cleaned up because someone spilled paint on them at some point.  Hello, why do you have paint next to pewter???  For those who have pewter pieces, what is the best way to clean them up? 

Things are getting busy around here again.  Wheat harvest will begin in just a few days and the kids' sweet corn patch is growing like crazy.  I need to get out and make a new sign for along the road.  The one we have is kinda scary looking.  I made it spur of the moment a few years ago and kept forgetting to make a nicer one.  So that's what I am working on today.  That  and cleaning out craft supplies and old fabric to add to the garage sale pile.  We are having our sale during the US 127 Garage Sales in August.  The northern starting point is West Unity, OH.  My hometown.  We live about 5 miles south of town and just a little off US 127 so it makes a perfect time to have one.  We did well a couple of years ago when we had it.  Last year, I decided I wanted to go to the sales instead of having one. 

I am getting awfully close to 250 followers.  I think when I hit that magic number, I  will have a giveaway to celebrate.  Don't know yet what the might be, but I'll work on something.  Stay tuned and I will let you know when sign up time will be!! 

Hubby and I will be celebrating our 20 year anniversary on Wednesday.  Boy time sure does go.  Better go get busy.  Take care and thanks for stopping by.
