The Hunt is On

finding a box of zinc lids at a farm auction

the lady of this house was moving to a nursing home and all her stuff was up for auction

Finding those canning jars at a garage sale has, well, sort of saved our marriage. Not that our marriage was on the brink of falling apart, but it was sure starting to drift apart. We've been bemoaning the fact that there was very little we enjoyed doing together (after 24 years of marriage). He had his stuff and I had mine, and that was about it. Then getting interested in collecting something, then selling the extras, that has really brought us together. Now we are fellow treasure hunters, and we're having a lot of fun going to auctions and thrift stores, planning our next etsy addition, and packing boxes for shipment.
