WHAT DO YOU WEAR TO GARAGE SALES?

The occasion was the naming ceremony for our newest granddaughter.


You probably know that I like to look for garden 'stuff' at garage sales. So after the event we were driving back to our son's home when we passed a garage sale, and of course I couldn't resist. I trotted down the driveway in my sari and the reward was.....


4 pretty glass balls for my stock tank. It was in need of a little pizazz to go along with the floating islands. And the bonus was they were in a large pewter bowl. I was too busy looking at the glass balls and the $2 price tag, to examine the dirty old bowl, but when I looked later I saw it said Nambe. What a find.

  3. Those glass balls are almost (almost!) as colorful as you are in that stunning sari. I'm with Sue - that is an adorable family photo. Happy day all around...

  5. Great finds! I'm surprised the seller didn't up the price when he/she saw your fancy garb.

  7. I love your beautiful Indian clothes! And I love the idea that you garage saled in your sari. What is Nambe, though?

    1. If only I knew how to wrap the sari! Nambe is a type of metal wear. They sell it at Breeds.
