Hi everyone,

I've been doing more videos than I have blog posts lately.  If you want to see my videos you can find them here:  http://www.youtube.com/user/kerles211?feature=mhee

My computer died last Wednesday night.  I've been using family member's computers when I can.  I'm hoping my computer will be fixed in a couple of days.  I have a bunch of videos that I want to make and upload.

I was at Charlton Park Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  The park is truly my favorite place in the world.  Check it out at www.charltonpark.org. 

Hopefully soon I will be able to post more pictures etc of various projects that I have completed or have in the works.

Yard sale haul

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a fun 4th of July weekend!  Yesterday I went to a mini golf place with my husband, son, and two brothers.  We played mini golf, arcade games, had lunch, and the boys hit some balls on the driving range.  It was fun but really really hot.  It was 94 degrees yesterday.  We are not used to that heat.

On our way home we stopped at a yard sale/rummage sale.  A lot of the prices were high but they had some really interesting things.  This is what we bought:

I didn't see a price tag on this box so I asked how much they wanted.  The man said he had $10 on it but would take $5.  So, I paid $5 for this box of goodies.

Some of the $5 box contents.

The basket has lots of buttons in it.

This was in the $5 box also.

All of this was in a box for $2

Container and hardware for $4

50 cents.

I'll use this stuff for all sorts of fun projects.
