On Friday Pete took the day off of work because we were driving down to Champaign for the U of I game, so he was able to join Maddie and I on our weekly garage sale expedition. Every Friday we get up, head out the door and hit the yard sales, stopping for junk food and coffee as needed. Maddie loves it and always looks forward to Fridays.
This week was pretty good. I got this great, vintage Hawkeye picnic basket (made in Burlington, Iowa) for only $4. What a bargain! It still has it's hanging shelf inside and is big enough to hold a whole bunch of things.
As you can see, the cats had to get in on the photo shoot. First Spike walked in. . . then Mud had to see what all the excitement was about. They don't prefer hanging out with each other all that much though, so Mud made a swift exit.
Leaving the adorable, yet constantly befuddled Spiker to pose with the basket.
I also picked up a little "Weave Easy Hand Loom" for only 25 cents. It was complete with the original box and directions, so I'll have to try it out and report back.
