I am definitely proud to be a Canadian and this weekend we did lots of celebrating as it wasn't only canada's birthday but my cousin was also celebrating her 17th birthday this weekend with the whole family. It was an awesome get together and for once we were all present for most of it. My family is pretty close and what I mean by family is my grandparents, mother and her two sisters and all the grand kids. I also had a BIG yardsale that I went to, I mentioned in another post that I had been to a yardsale not too long ago and bought some really nice glass bottles and some other items, I may not have mention and meant to. I am a huge yardsale fanatic and would seriously buy everything I needed from a yardsale rather than new from the store, most things anyway. I'll post some recent yardsale finds in this entry.
|So appreciative that a few parents have given me permission to use photos of the kids for work! |
They are all sooo adorable. The art work is something the kids put together for summer
this past week, some pretty flowers and busy bees!
|Friday night a bunch of family and some friends got together to celebrate Megan's |
birthday! Top: My aunts and I, Tonia- or as I refer to her as BioDad, Claudine
and then Myself. Bottom: a few of old friends and family with a
couple of new friends.
|Fireworks in the yard! :P don't worry we had a fire fighter in the family haha|
|There was alot of food involved this weekend.|
|My Dog T-Bear shed's awful! He's a ShepardxHusky and the hair just falls off him all year. He looks |
much better after the brushing!
|The first photos is the bird feeder that I bought at the yardsale for $2. I brought|
it home as a project and wanted to do it right away. So I painted it up and
hung it outside of the house :)
|Bought a bunch of old camera equipment :) I collect this stuff if anyone has things they don't want!|
Just hinting :P
|I love colored glass and I couldn't resist these beautiful bottles.|
|The photo doesn't do the plates justice. They're from Egypt but I don't know anything else about them.|
Those are some of my yardsale finds, but there are LOTS more that I've collected over the past couple of weeks. This weekend I also bought two cushioned chairs and an antique baby crib. I have a bit of a problem when it comes to buying things at yardsales. Some stuff I buy to fix up and sell, now to later.
Overall I had a great weekend of festivities and spending money.
