♫ Hey Big Spender ♫

Scott bought a new toy: a bigger mower, with a grass-catcher. 

Yesterday I went to my first garage sale this season. I don't need a thing! But am looking for child's wagons to use to move my heavy, full flowerpots around the yard, and wooden photo frames for my wall collection of family pictures. I brought home one 5" x 7" frame, and:

to help keep mosquitoes at bay out on the deck: can't have too many

the cutest little flowerpot, right

A chocolate-melting cup and a noodle bowl w/chopsticks

All for a grand total of $2.

  1. A grass catcher! The grass gets so long that we end up having to "harvest" it for the compost, manually. I like the sounds of a grass catcher.

    Wonderful treasures. I love to browse yard sales, but usually they are on Saturday mornings, while I am at work, BAH!

  2. Scott used to go over the mowed lawn a second time, to mulch the grass that had been left from the first pass; then it could be left on the lawn. We have a farmyard though, so it's time-consuming to do that; and it often didn't get done soon enough. This will be a labour-saver and a load-off-the-mind giver.
