I almost missed an opportunity. I had gone to a yard sale in Cove yesterday and found a few clipboards and an old bedspread that was a nice color and print. The old guy's shop was pretty amazing. He restores old cars and had three in the shop and it was pretty decked out with automobile signs, and memorabilia. I told him I was going to have Gareld drop by just to look at his shop. When Gary got home he said "I thought you would have gotten those pickets". I hadn't seen them. There were about 10 on the ground outside the shop and a stack of cut barn boards. I went back today to take a look because I don't know how I missed them. There they were. Ten pickets laying on the ground with a sign that said, "350 pickets $5.00 you haul". FIVE BUCKS!! Gareld hadn't read the sign so he didn't know there were that many for that price. I bought them, of course. Lucky me. Now what to make with them. First thing I'm going to do is some christmas stars. Any ideas?
