My friend Kelly had her quarterly Garage Sale , and I went by to check it out.
Well organised with "real" sale prices, it's no wonder that her friends look forward to it and are eager to support the cause.
After leaving Kelly's it was off to the supermarket to recycle my bottles.....I don't like them to pile up. ...especially as the bottles are not as a result of me, but from my dear daughter and her friends. Somehow, somehow, somehow, the empties end up here at my home. I can't stand clutter and therefore they are out of my home before they have a chance to get comfy. At the recycling centre, a refund voucher is issued which can only be used in the supermarket to purchase groceries.
I went looking for my favourite Hot Cross Buns, but there were none available....only the "other kind" made by the other bakery which I don't really care for. I picked up some other necessities and left.
During the week, I had received an email blast from a home decor store advertising a 40% Relocation Store Sale. Since I was already in the area, I decided to stop by.
Limegrove Lifestyle Centre was my destination.
Today the gardeners were trimming back several of the lovely plantings. I stopped to have a chat and also to take a few photos of a beautiful heliconia which I would love to add to my collection.
Entering into the coolness of the courtyard, I was greeted by a pretty cow.
How now brick cow???
"Just fine thank you."
The store I was looking for was on the upper level.
The West Coast Garden Centre has a display which can be admired as the slow moving escalator takes you to the upper floor.
I liked this purple bromeliad a lot.I had to remind myself that I was not on a plant hunting mission today, and move on.
A closer look of this display was necessary......
This plant pot gave me an idea to create one of my own....I like the elongated stones.
Along the corridor to the open door at the end.
There was hardly any merchandise left, since the pre-sale was yesterday....I came away with nada.
The store display next door was beautifully decorated with lovely origami birds in gold and white.
I made a mental note to myself that I needed to start making origami creations again.
We can only hope that this worldwide economic crisis will soon be resolved....to think that a few greedy folks were able to bring the world to a economic standstill...let's hope we can continue to ride the wave of uncertainty until it peters out on the shore and we can stand economically strong again.
