oLD STUFF, gOOD sTUFF & tEQUILA
As most of you know Matt and I love old stuff, we love hunting for it at garage sale, antique stores, an sometimes the garbage. Well this past weekend we went to a 50% off sale at the salvation army in Seattle. MAtt was so excited he made sure we were there 30 minutes before it opened and we took the VW just in case we found something big. I had to tease him a bit because he was in such a hurry. I was sure that no one would be there waiting to get in, I was wrong. We ended up being 3rd in line of about 50 plus people...crazy! It was cold and raining too. And the people in line, it was hard not to stare, there was a little Old lady two people behind us who was chewing . I was wondering what Matt had got us into. I have to say it was all worth it because I finally got my copper pot that I have been wanting for a few years. We have found them in the past but I would never pay the pretty penny people want for them. Now for the amazing part, when I found the copper pot it did not have a lid on it and I was fine with that. After a few minutes Matt and I separated to look for our own treasures. Matt always hits the weird section , random stuff that doesn't fit anywhere else in the store so they stick it in a pile in the back. Well it paid off because he found the lid, when were both stunned! When we were leaving a lady came up to us and was going to tell us about the lid till she saw we had it but she said that the pot had been here for a really long time but the lid just came in YESTERDAY! I know, I am way to excited about this, but still wow!
Lets see what else, Matt and I are in the process off revamping our bikes. That is a pictures of my seat with the S on it, sooo cute. No cool story about where we got it I found it on ebay. I do have to say it was the first time I won anything on ebay, so that made me happy. Oh and my crazy quilt. I love crazy quilts, I have one that I got a few years ago that I use all the time. Well my mother in law Kelli also knows this. Last weekend we ran into Kelli at the store and she told me she had seen one that day in Issaquah so the 3 of us headed to get my quilt. The fun part of that story is that we took the bus (Matt drove) and Kelli and I took tequila shoots on the way there and on the way back. No one can call us quitters either because we finished the bottle, well minus 2 shots MAtt had. I can put that one on the list of things that I never thought I would do. I am not a tequila fan but drinking a bottle with my mother in law. We had so much fun but again I never thought it would happen.
