Two Sisters' Closet Sale

closet sale

It's been almost two years since we had our first closet sale, and it's time for another because our closets are packed!  Well, they were packed until we went piece by piece pulling out items for this year's sale.  We literally spent the entire day yesterday tagging and pricing items for Tuesday.  I think we have more items than we did last time!  We have hundreds of designer items including tops, tunics, dresses, sweaters, jackets, dress pants, jeans, shoes and handbags.  There are so many cute things that we were even trying to buy items from each other!  So I hope you can make it next Tuesday night and take advantage of all these cute clothes at great prices!  And the best part of this year's sale is that your purchases will help my little sister raise money for her 10 day mission trip to India next month!

Hummingbird Festival

Local festivals always seem to fall on the weekend after Labor Day signaling the end of summer and the beginning of cooler weather.  With three different festivals on the calendar this past weekend, we decided to attend one that we hadn't been to before called the Hummingbird Migration Celebration & Nature Festival.  The festival was located at Strawberry Plains Audubon Center in Holly Springs, Mississippi which was about a 45 minute drive for us.  My favorite part was the hummingbird viewing and banding station where the hummingbirds were measured, banded and weighed and then released back into the wild.  I was amazed at how tiny the hummingbirds were up close!  Even with all their "fattening up" to prepare for their upcoming migration to Central America, they barely weigh more than a penny!  I sure will miss my two birdies that live in our backyard and drink from our hummingbird feeder.  Have a safe flight and I'll see you next year!
