Estate Sale Finds

I checked out a really cool estate/office liquidation sale this morning and found some exciting treasures. A lot of the items for sale were old office equipment and furniture from our small town newspaper, The Aransas Pass Progress. They had dozens of old letterpress trays for $10 bucks a piece. I've been wanting one for a long time to organize my jewelry and beads in, so of course I had to grab one! I also found a really cool old wire basket/sorter for $1...what a bargain. It still had handwritten paper labels on the front for the different sections of the newspaper. I also picked up a couple aqua ball jars to add to my collection, a jar of old wooden spools, and a seashell baking tin. What a wonderful day!

I was so proud of my 2 yr old, Kolby, this Easter weekend. My husband bought a horse named Payaso for Kolby and our 7 yr old daughter Shelby awhile back. Kolby has been pretty much terrified of the horse...he will hesitantly pet it occasionally, but other than that he keeps his distance. He got a sudden burst of courage this weekend and actually let my husband put him on Payaso's back. Then to my total surprise he even rode it with his daddy sitting behind him. I'm so proud of my little man for conquering his fears!
