From sun up to sun down...we scampered across the land in search of deals!
In the beginning it was empty...
But the word was full - so we strived to comply.  And it was good.

The day began with shivers in the dawn's first light & ended with shivers in the car's headlights (We are in Wisconsin after all).  We followed the road where it would lead & lead & lead - only once asking a group in blaze orange to guide us onward.  Our mission was quite simple, put all caution aside - let the good times roll and find the deals...afterall, we had a vehicle to fill!  Do stay tuned for follow-up projects with those wheels in each friend's hands.  It was just so much fun....thanks my dear friends!!

Was heard, "that grater just doesn't speak to me". Friend responding = with grater pressed to her lips and lips talking behind grater holes, "take me home." Still makes me smile!
Now, Jani - to post your sweet gnome & wheel project - you first have to save your picture on your computer in a web friendly mode (generally about 45 jpg)...then post on the Share tab at the top of this site. Hope that helps - can't wait to see!

With a little green and red paint a garden gnome becomes a Christmas elf delivering a sweet wheel of minty treats. Posted: 3:21 pm on November 23rd

But I will use my wheel for something special when I decorate for Christmas. Thanks again friends! Posted: 2:00 pm on November 23rd
JaniD writes: The wheels continue to spin in my head as ideas go 'round and 'round. Just about ready to start the project. Sure am thankful for friends and shopping trips this week!

I'm envious you have a great group of friends to go junking with. Looks like you all got some nice goodies.

Sounds like a grand time was had, and we'll anxiously await the wheel projects results. Posted: 9:18 pm on November 22nd
