127 Sale
We are back from the World's Longest Yard Sale!! Here are some highlights: (next post will be all the pretty treasures I found ~ and believe me, I found ALOT! :)

Goodies galore -- nestled among shade trees, a little bit of heaven in the heat.....This sale was next to a cute little barn shoppe. One little area was even cottage style!

This was a little vignette outside their shoppe. So cute!!The hollyhocks in this country yard were so pretty, I had to take a photo of them!!

These were in the "free" box! Don't you think the little white and grey one would go perfectly in my home? (hubby did NOT agree!)

For those not familiar with the World's Longest Yard Sale, it runs from Michigan down through Alabama along Route 127. It is a junk lover's paradise!! We concentrated our efforts in Kentucky and our home state of Ohio this year. I am blessed that my husband like yard sales and junk-hunting too (even if he doesn't share my love of cats ;) We have so much fun together.
Next Post: The Pretties!!

Oh lucky...we didn't get to go this year :( Was there a lot more here in Ohio than last? Where did ya start here? Were those Hollyhocks in a yard in Ky? Where did ya end in Ky? We usually start over from Williamsburg,Ky and go to Chattanooga Tn. If I'd known you were goin i'd of met up with ya and given ya some $$ and pick me up some vintage buttons, aprons, and hankies if ya saw any..oh well...I'm so glad you had fun (just what ya wanted to do look for stuff for me LOL)
Can't wait to see what you found!

What fun! And you're so fortunate that your hubby will go with you, even in this heat! The kittens were adorable....I hope that they were in the know me, the animal lover. I saw your finds on facebook and commented. check out my blog...I haven't been on there for awhile with my Dad's death and all the lose ends...I will definitely be on more often as the weather gets post is on gorgeous children's chandeliers! You'll love, love, love them!!

Oh, I can't wait to see what you got! I so want to go to that next year! I would love a kitty, too, but it's not going to happen here, either.
