1. An old chess set made of wood sitting on the little step stool we found for the kitchen now that all my dishes are on the top shelf which is about 10 feet above my reach... ish. Oh and our shade house plant. We have house plants. I really like them. It's a new development. 2. Little blue bottles. I think they will make a very pretty gift. 3. Old books I found at an estate sale in Capitol Hill. All the favorites I've been trying to find. The former tenant and I could have been friends, if only it had been a garage sale. 4. Checkers! Because garage sales are the places to buy board games. 5. Also tools, garage sales are the place for those. These are some of my treasures from the summer.
