It's nearly time for the vernal equinox, SPRING, new life, bright green leaves, colorful flowers! Families and friends will gather for Easter celebrations. The sun will shine and warmer weather will return. Sounds great, huh?
Aunt Sister and I are planning the annual Easter dinner and egg hunt we have the day before Easter with eggs filled with candy and games galore and lots of good food. We started early looking for plastic eggs to fill, games to play, and fun prizes for all the kids. We look forward to all the usual kids who come to the party, plus some newcomers...our grandbabies born last October!
Our next adventure will be to prepare ourselves and our picks for a booth at the first annual Garden and Goods Spring Market to be held on the grounds of the Cragfont State Historic Home, Castalian Springs, TN from Thursday May 7th through Saturday May 9th. The first night is a "sneak peak" with limited attendance but the next two days will be open to all: Friday 12-8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is a $3 admission each day. If you're in the area, we hope you'll come to the "market" and please, look us up! We'd love to meet you!

We have had a cloudy week here in Middle Tennessee with some rain and some drip and just general funky weather. But Aunt Sister and I had a great day at one of our local Goodwill stores this week, a store we refer to as "the digger".
We spent several hours "digging" through bins of merchandise before we left with 75.5 pounds of "great picks". Add to that two more stops at local thrift stores and it makes for a "car full".
We "picked" several Christmas blow molds that day, in addition to other fun Christmas decorations, games, books, toys, home décor, and general funky junk.
Aunt Sister Cindy's find of the day was her newest obsession...."knee hugger elves". We've already started listing some of the new "picks" with more to come in the next few days. Check out our latest posts on Instagram at auntsisterspicks for photos of our "full shopping cart" and Aunt Sister Cindy's elves.
We hope you'll enjoy the new lists and any of our other great picks already listed. Christmas parties are just around the corner and we have Tacky Christmas sweaters galore as well as great gifts for your Secret Santa, Fav Sister, Best Friend, or Dirty Santa. To help sweeten "your hunt" we're offering a coupon for the weekend. Just enter ChristmasFun2014 now through Sunday night for 10% off your order.
