Fizzying up garage sales

Happy Labor Day weekend for all of you that have it off.  Did you hit the sales? Grill everyday? or just spend all 3 days vegging?  What ever you did I hope you enjoyed it.

I hit a few sales, spruced up the yard and vegged :) One thing I saw a lot of was garage sale signs. It was a sunny weekend to have them. I recently helped a friend with her garage sale.  Hers was HUGE. She's moving to Montana and wanted to sell anything she didn't really need.  Well of course we had to fizzy it up a little.  So I made cupcakes! For us and any of our friends who stopped by and maybe for her dog who  tried to help herself to one when we turned our backs :)

I made 2 different kinds.

I had to make the crab cupcakes because when one is moving from one state to another, one can get a little crabby :)

The other cupcakes I made were Pink Lemonade because it's summer and summer is lemonade. Look at all those great items for sale.

May your Labor Day be full of Leisure :)

  3. Thanks for all your help and enthusiasm! Yard sale went pretty well and post- yard sale craigslisting was pretty good, too. ALL of it made better with cupcakes, because the only thing not made better by cupcakes is the stomach flu, right?

      So true ha ha. I don't think cupcakes and stomach flu mix.
