Saling and Munching!

I spent last Saturday morning yard saling and meandering up and down the streets of Lunenburg.  I found a great chenille bedspread just like I wanted, near mint shape for only $2.  I also found a sad and sorry looking boudoir chair in need of a makeover and some love and attention ($5).  At 9:30 am, I ate a gorgeous worth-much-more-than-$2 piece of carrot cake with thick, delicious cream cheese icing. [Vegetable and dairy -- perfect for breakfast, right?]  

One particular yard sale stands out from the entire day.  It was put on by a local women's group; and by the time I got there at 11:30 am, I'm sure a lot had already sold.  But they still had some lovely vintage things remaining, and everything was displayed very prettily.  I bought this cute little purse ($3) and vintage pin cushion ($3) [just like my Grandma had hanging off her cupboard door].  

But the thing that set that yard sale apart from all the other great sales that day was that while you were shopping, someone went round with a tray of homemade rhubarb cheesecake squares.  Free dessert!  And my oh my!  They were scrumptuous.

"I'll have to try to find this recipe", I thought to myself.

How happy I was today to see that Mary at One Perfect Bite was featuring -- what else -- Rhubarb Cheesecake Squares.  If you've never tried them, please do.  They are soooo good!

Don't you just love it when your prayers are answered!

That's my kinda day Sandy! When I saw that chair I thought, take off the seat and put a planter of flowers in it! But that's me the Flower lady!!
Dessert at a yard sale, interesting. I will have to remember that, it may bring in more customers, LOL!!
Love Di ♥

I love yard sales and Lununburg is such a lovely place to be strolling around. Have you ever attended the annual 100 mile yard sale that goes through the Musquodoboit Valley and beyond? You'd be in thriftiness heaven!
