Patio Sale..

Every fall and spring, the parks have patios sales.... 
When the snowbirds open up...they have 'treasures' they know longer want...
in the spring they have 'treasures' they know longer need... 

I wasn't planning on buying anything...
I like having 'just what I need' in my small space...

but then I saw this...
mom had one of these...
it reminded me of her ...
and the years this was the only tree mom and dad put up
I thought....
then I bought
I cleaned it all up...I have the perfect spot in our trailer....
It's ready for when we finally
have Christmas in Yuma!

(now I just have to figure out where I'll store it:)
