What happens when you get TV time

In the summer I don't get alot of TV time but recently hubby and I had time to watch a few of our shows.This is the result.LoL.. Diners Drive Ins and Dives ...
Hubby had to make some yummy food....Then we moved on to American Pickers truth be told I enjoy the show some but think they are not always the brightest guys when it comes to pickin.But it does get me motivated to hop in and hunt (especially for all the wonderful things they leave behind)..The result....
These are the two I'm keeping..Egg Basket and Batter Pitcher.The pitcher isn't real old but I've wanted one for awhile but they are so pricey..So was glad to just find one I could afford...
And finally Hoarders..

Yep gotta clean out so you don't end up on the show..I'm not looking forward to this at all!!! Hubby and the neighbors planned this one.I went through a few things and got about 5 boxes together but hubbies garage is full so there is plenty for him to get rid of.I went out and priced a few things like a primitive sideboard cupboard,antique cubbie shelf, antique wheelbarrow,crocks,sleds and apple butter stirrers and a few other things but the back of the garage is packed to the ceiling with I don't even remember so I told him I'll set up the stuff I know and he can just put all the other stuff on dollar tables and I will try not to look...If I look I'll have the tendency to drag it back in to sell online or at market.LoL.I figure if I don't remember any of it now I just won't look and won't want it.I'm putting most of my market goods out but reduced the price to get rid of it and start fresh.The weather is unsteady the next few days so praying it waits till evenings to rain..Well girls hope you all are enjoying summer.We've been in heat wave this week but still enjoying getting out in the mornings to watch the birds and evenings tending my buckets garden.They are doing very well and I've already started getting some veggies.

Hi Amy,
It looks delicious! I know what you mean about watching Hoarders. It always gets me motivated!
I like your "Keepers". They are all neat!
It is hot and humid here! Rain and more rain.
Have a good week.

Love your tv night! Same shows we watch too....and I love the Pickers but only wish they would get into some real antique things as well as their signs, cycles and related items....wish there was a picker show for just ANTIQUE things.
Wishing I was coming to your sale - sounds awesome.

You can come watch t.v. with us if you are going to make yummy food!! We love DDD and I always end up having to go get a bowl of cereal while watching because it makes me so hungry:)
Your egg basket is cool. What are you going to do with it?
I would love, love, love, to come to your sale!! I bet you have some amazing things to get rid of. Good luck with it. -Steph-
