Surprise Guest

This morning I was out of the house early, all bright eyed, and bushy tailed, looking forward to attending an estate sale this morning.   Stopped at the Wawa for some iced tea, and the ole Pixe Mobile left me sitting.  Ran into my neighbor there, he tried to jump start it.  Nothing.  

Thank goodness for AAA, that has got to be the best $45 I spend! The tow truck shows up, after I gave my garage a heads up that my car will be towed in, and in less than 5 minutes my car is running.  I thought it would be my starter, turns out, the connection was loose on the battery.  Gotta love an easy fix.  

So what does this have to do with surprise guests?  Well, I had at least 2 men looking at my engine, and not one of them mentioned seeing this:
 Now, admittedly, I don't know much about cars, however, I don't think this is supposed to be part of my engine!  Yes, it's a nest...I think a mouse nest.  I poked around with a stick and nothing poked back (thank goodness!).  So I removed as much as I can, and vacuumed the rest out.  I wonder how many of my neighbors saw me vacuuming my engine, and wondering what the crazy lady is doing?!

So, next time the car leaves you sit, and you suspect the battery,  be sure to check for loose connections, as well as corrosion at the battery terminals.  Gotta go now, and put my extra wrench in the car, just in case!

Have a fabulous day!

My Latest Obsession

Lately, I friend of mine has been calling me, waking me up really early, to go to yard sales and estate sales.  This is something I've really never done.  Well, I've done yard sales many years ago when I was looking to outfit my first apartment.  Estate sales are new to me.  So, of course I've got my eye out for treasures to well, create new Treasures!   I've made a couple good scores, but I think this is may favorite!  Come see my new obsession!  I have so much fun sorting through the thousands of buttons I've found!  

Vintage Button Rings
I will be adding a few everyday in my Etsy shop!  Just click the link above and you will be taken to one of the rings!   They will also be for sale this weekend at Stoudtburg Village in Adamstown Pa.  I will be taking part in the Arts and Crafts Festival they are sponsoring June 28 and June 29.  If you are local, I hope to see you there!

Wishing you a fabulous and peace filled day!
