Wish me luck.

    Hi, KariAnne. I cannot wait to see what you find at today's yard sales. Isn't it funny how different regions have different names for these sales? In Connecticut we called them tag sales, where I live now they are yard sales, or garage sales. The best are the town-wide sales that take place in the summer here in upstate NY. Have an amazing weekend!

    We have attended two murder mystery parties where we each dressed up as the character we drew. They were a lot of fun. I was the only one to guess who done it both times, no doubt due to all the mysteries I've read and the British mysteries I've watched. If you haven't watched Only Murders In The Building catch it before the 2nd season starts on June 28th. It is clever and funny and I love the artwork of the opening which changes slightly each episode. I know you will have a great time solving the mystery at the party, As a side note the second season of Bridgerton started yesterday.

    The mint-colored door and the decoupaged eggs ... sigh. And yes, years ago I went to a couple of different murder mystery parties in which we all had to dress up and act in character. We had fun but I don't think it's the kind of thing I'd ever talk my husband into doing!!!! Hope you enjoy your time tonight.

    Excellent thistles, KA! Love that little knit dress - and going to order the egg organizer - we get 18 count eggs but our plastic egg cart that came with an old fridge only holds 12 - plus I use a "make-shift" top for it b/c they say eggs must always be covered. So yay.
