 Meet YArt (yard art) the whale. I found him at Goodwill this morning hanging out in the furniture department.

At first, I thought he was one of those springy playground ride on toys missing the seat. I messaged one of my friends and he said it looked homemade. I then decided he must be yard art. I went and got a cart, paid for him and took him home.

My husband said he is made from a motorcycle gas tank, fly wheel and used welding rods. He's currently hanging out in my yard. (YArt, not my husband)

Fake or Real

 Yesterday,  I bought a Coach purse from Goodwill. Usually,  I'm fairly good at spotting a fake but this one has me stumped. The stitching is on point, the hardware is heavy and tight, the material is nice and it has the creed patch. However, the C pattern doesn't look neatly aligned and it is missing the horse and buggy logo. It is from a factory outlet so I'm not sure if that is why?

That Was Easy

 I bought this standing basket organizer earlier today. I posted it on FB marketplace and within two hours it was sold.

People in this area, love these organizers. I've had good luck selling baskets, cabinets and general storage. I pick them up whenever I see them and they usually sell within a few hours of posting. What are some good sellers for you? Post a comment below.

F U Gnome Thief

 Two days ago, I added a gnome sitting on a glass mushroom to my kindness rock garden. If you don't  know what a kindness rock is, I'll  explain.  People in our community  paint rocks and hide them around town. Some rocks have pictures or designs and others have quotes. A few people  like myself have created rock gardens where you can trade these rocks.

 I check my garden frequently for new rocks. Saturday morning I looked and my gnome was still in my garden. By 1 in the afternoon,  it was gone. It makes me so sad someone would take it. I have an idea who did it but no proof. I'm hoping it will be returned but I doubt it.

I made a sign and hopefully whomever took my gnome sees it and feels guilty. Don't take something that doesn't belong to you. I might not have seen you do it, but God certainly did.

A Bit Of Nostalgia

 In 1983 our town built a mall. They had a grand opening in August of that year. 

Late last year plans were made to demolish the mall as stores were leaving this area. The mall officially closed in April of this year and it is currently being torn down.

Some of the items inside the mall went to auction while others were donated to the Habitat store. A few weeks ago, I noticed on their FB page, they had some food court tables and chairs for sale.  I really wanted a piece of the mall and last Saturday my hubby bought me a set. Here it is in our breakfast nook.
