Today, despite the drizzly weather, my brother, one of my friends, and I went back into the city for the Great Glebe Garage Sale. As usual, it didn't disappoint! At our first stop, I snapped up a breakfast-in-bed tray that I'm going to do a mosaic design on. It's pretty cute. I also snapped up a purse (shocking, I know), some old handkerchiefs, a two-tier cookie tray (it's got the cutest Victorian lady design), and my favourite find of all: an old fold-up cot. When I was a little girl on the farm, I had one in my bedroom set up as a daybed. I loved it, and it went by the wayside over the years. I've finally snagged this one for five dollars. Now I just need to make a mattress for it, but my mom is already on that project.
My brother fared the best of us all. He got an old suitcase (he loves that sort of thing), a silver plate with somethin-er-other engraved on it, a print of a WWI airplane, and a clock made out of a small record. It's his best find of the day, and I think it's going to look awesome in his room. He also bought himself a newsboy cap that I've been egging him on to buy for ages.
On the way home, we stopped and took some pictures of this old torn-down house. I love the foundation and stone chimney. It would have been a cool house in its day. And I also snapped a picture of these cows. Not your regular Pontiac County breed - in fact I'm not sure what breed they are, but they looked pretty cool. I love the way they tilt their heads up to get a better look at you.
