The Maple Hill Hop 55

Maple Hill Hop

Welcome to 
The Maple Hill Hop.
This is a hop for folks who love the outdoors.
Feel free to post about anything that's going on
in your neck of the woods,
no matter the season.
(Please share only outdoor posts.)


On Saturday, we took part in the
39-mile yard sale all along Scenic Hwy 17.

The weather was a bit cool and quite windy,
but it was a great day for experiencing this event for the first time.

All along this road, folks were poised to sell, shop
and discover hidden treasures.

We found everything from furniture to toys to kitchen gadgets.

This old tricycle really caught my eye.

And who could resist checking out these ride-ons?
Old-fashioned fun, no batteries necessary.

There were 4 or 5 sewing machines for sale in various places
and I was tempted to pick one up, but didn't.
I left my name and number with one seller,
but since I haven't heard from him,
I guess it wasn't meant to be.
The best part of yard saling, 
especially one of this magnitude,
is thinking about the life the items had before they got here.
If only they could talk...

Ever practical, here's what came home with me.
A hand cultivator, a wire brush (for cleaning the bird baths),
and a box grater (for making my lotions).
Big K also got a great deal on a 24-piece Pyrex glass storage bowl set,
new in the box for $10.  What a steal.

In our family, thrift is not a four-letter word.
We are blessed with everything we need,
but the hunt for the treasures from the past is a worthwhile endeavor.
It was a blast!

What adventures have you been on lately?
HOP to it!
