I had good luck at rummage days and a nearby neighborhood-wide yard sale.

A shoebox of stamps.  He wanted $15 and we settled on $10, and as soon as I walked away I was kicking myself for not really looking at the variety of stamps because I could tell there were a lot of American flag stamps which I really, really don't need.  However when I got home and went through them there really weren't that many, and I was still left with a good amount of stamps I could use.

I love office supplies, especially those that come in tins.  Here's a tin of "12 drawing pencils" - that still has two pencils left inside.  Certainly worth the 50 cents.

Little half-full boxes of tiny staples from a garage sale, which will help to use my already established tiny collection of tiny staplers.

What a great way to spend a birthday

My birthday gift from Richard arrived a week early!

A Patsy Cline album with our wedding song - "You Belong to Me."  It arrived on May 9, the sixth anniversary of our engagement, we couldn't have planned it better.

We spent all day in the garden.

It is officially summer - and I have the first sunburn of 2014 to prove it!  Now over to Grandpa's for some mother's day, Debbie's birthday, and my birthday celebrations!
