junk in the trunkI am a woman with a mission.  Our church is having a pie sale/book sale and, I think, chili sale in October.  Figuring they could make more money on the pies if they came with a nice pie plate (instead of a foil plate) the church ladies are scouring yard sales for pie plates.  Being I love to visit yard sales, I can help.  Wes accompanied me to help keep my spending in check and to carry stuff.  We stopped first at the yard sale at the town transfer station.  The sale was a benefit for the Saugerties animal shelter.  We found two pie plates and a couple other items.

Our next stop was the junk in the trunk sale at St. John’s Church. The lawn sculpture in the top picture greeted us as we walked in. Interesting.  The second picture is one side of the double row of vendors filling the parking lot.  new tea cup

We found another lovely tea cup, some Thomas the Train tracks in a cute zip up carrying bag, a cake plate just like my mom used to have, two nice candle holders and 5 more pie plates.

For lunch, we drove to Kingston. On Wall Street there is a restaurant called Opa! Gyros which is a Greek grill and creperie.  By the time we got our food it was almost two o’clock and we were starving, so I totally forgot to take a picture of our lunches, which were plentiful and delicious. Instead the picture above is the sculpture hanging over our table.  We are already planning on going back with April for her birthday lunch. kitty clock

After we finished lunch, we walked slowly up Wall Street to Bop to Tottom, a very unusual store.  They carry some clothing, jewelry, gift items, wall plaques, scarves –all kinds of stuff.  This whimsical
clock made me smile.  The mouse moves back and forth like a pendulum on a grandfather clock.  new bracelet

Sometimes, something just jumps out at you when you are shopping and you just have to buy it.  I felt this bracelet was something I couldn’t live without.  I loved the different textures on the metals and it’s so comfortable.tea kettle

It was just starting to sprinkle when we left Bop to Tottom. We made it home before the heavy rain started and spent the rest of the day inside.  For Wes–watching the Cardinal game and reading.  For me–sewing, of course. I sewed 20 pairs of button eyes on a cat quilt (pictures tomorrow) and made two more Farm girl vintage blocks. kitchen window

This one is called kitchen window and I’m thinking of making a wall hanging from more of these blocks, with one fabric in the center instead of four.

It’s 8:30 at night and my stomach is just starting to growl.  That was some lunch!
