Be Inspired #187

Happy May Day Everyone,
and Welcome to Be Inspired!!

Well, it's shaping up to be one of "those" weeks. I'd been waiting for the community garage sale in our neighborhood and area because there will be a lot of people out. I have tons of "stuff"... some vintage, some furniture, household items, lot's of decor items, general garage/moving sale fare, and I thought it was always scheduled for Mother's Day Weekend. I'd participated before, and it was on Mother's Day Weekend. But no...surprise! We saw signs out for THIS weekend. I've had to hustle with finding help, and getting things priced. you goes on and on. I'm exhausted and I haven't even had the sale yet! So I only had a chance to grab three features, sorry it's a little condensed this week. Take a look at three great links last week.

You'll want to see  all the layers of this Gold Glam Table
from the Girl with the Midas Touch!

Love this Blinged Out Bike Wheel

and Terry at Forever Decorating created this amazing
French China Hutch.
It was made for her room!

thanks so much gals for sharing the goods!

and I just have to share this hilarious pic my daughter sent me from Pinterest.
Yep, says it all!

If you're interested in hitting the sales in our area, check out Craigslist for the garage sales in Springfield, Missouri this Friday. Ravenwood South...I'll be there! Sorry I won't be able to get back with you individually by email. I was totally taken by surprise on this.

    1. I am no longer receiving your posts via email. Have you had others comment with the same issue? I really miss getting them that way. Unfortunately in my case, out of sight, out of mind. I just happened to remember I hadn't been receiving my fellow Missourian's emails. I'm not even sure when they stopped.
      Thanks for any insight you may have.
