One of my favorite things about going to estate sales is discovering neighborhoods I never knew existed.
Part of the fun is not knowing what to expect until you get there.
Every so often you'll stumble upon a unique property like the one I went to last Friday that not only had spectacular views but an amazing garden as well!
There is my poor Mom who almost had a heart attack navigating the extremely narrow and treacherous roads leading up to the sale... I coaxed her into smiling for the camera as she was a bit of a nervous wreck!
While she waited in line I shopped the garage.
The house was on the small side so we had to wait in line a bit longer than usual so I took a tour of the garden...
Obviously these folks loved to garden!
Sometimes getting to see these homes, even in this chaotic state, is the treasure I leave with.
I must admit though I usually leave wondering what prompted the sale of the home and its contents...
I develop an emotional connection to the people who lived a life there.
I do love estate sales... it's always an adventure, and one I love to share with my mom!
Thankfully, she was rewarded for the hair raising trip and found a wonderful Asian-inspired cabinet to house her television.
