I just have to share today about a local non-profit that will be benefitting from our fall sale! My mom and I are excited to be helping (and you too!) the East Texas Food Bank located here in Tyler. Click on their link at the left side of the blog and check out all the people and organizations that they help with food everyday. I was amazed to know that in their hands $1 = 8 meals! ( I'm doing good to get one meal for $8.) All the donations to shop the Preview Party will be given to them. Also, we have another yummy surprise that you will be interested in which benefits them also, but that story is for another day....
Check out their website at http://www.easttexasfoodbank.org/ or click on the side bar link!

Well, mom and I started in the barn today, and can I just say that it is HOT in August in Texas! Do I hear an Amen? I thought you might like a peak inside. This picture is from the front as you walk in....well, needless to say we are going to be hanging out in there for awhile!

My folks, Rebekah and I took a road trip to my grandparents farm in South Dakota this summer. My wonderful grandparents are in their 80's and still living on their farm in a tiny town of Volga, South Dakota...(I know you have never heard of it!) Well, they were having some farm buildings taken down and so we went for moral support! We got there the evening before the shed was coming down and found it was full of "junky" treasures. We all started pulling out farm equipment parts, old bikes, interesting items...my grandpa thought we were nuts, but I told him about all the creative Texans I know who make great stuff out of junk...We saved a lot of stuff, some we got home and the rest will have to stay for another trip! I know all you junkies would have loved this "dig!" The "coolest" thing I found were the lightening rods made of copper from the 20's...Yes, they will be in the fall sale!
The sun was setting, the barn was being torn down tomorrow, so we went to work hauling out interesting stuff!
The shed had only been standing for 80+ years, so it had just a few cobwebs!
