Bits & Bobs
I decided to sell the painting I picked up this summer for $20 as hubby does not like it as much as I do. I tried Craigslist and no luck so have put it on consignment in a new used goods store that just opened up. They thought they would list it for $75 and whatever they sell it for I get to keep 60%. I will keep you posted if it sells.
I haven't done any updates on freebies of late - all this haul came in the last two weeks. It pays to sign up for freebies, especially when on a tight budget but I only sign up for things either ourselves or an immediate family member can use. Hubby is allergic to Tide so that sample is to be given to my Mother. I have given up on signing up for hand cream samples as have enough lotions to last several years as it is.
It finally started raining here so it has been hard to get out and mow the lawn that is now growing again due to moisture. The leaves are turning (photos to come - I have to get out and take some pictures) and there is the lovely smell of ocean salt and woodstove smoke in the air. I love fall. Time for cozy warm drinks like tea, hot chocolate, and spiced rums by the warmth of the fireplace.
I hope you all are enjoying your lovely fall weekend! Linking up with Elaine at Sunny Simple Life's Sunny Simple Sunday.
