Everything but stuff for Half-Pints

Ok, well, there will be SOME stuff from our Half-Pints (and for yours).  But basically, Lisa and a friend and I are busy decluttering our house of everything that no longer fits (um, two babies later I swear I’ve spanned a 10 size range), or that has just outworn it’s happy welcome and that we can’t sell at the next Half-Pint Resale.  That means that we are selling A LOT OF STUFF.  Anyway, we’ve been a little busy with this task, which is why we haven’t been around much.  But more next week.  We plan to make our big announcement soon.  Very Soon.   (smile)

These boots are made for Stompin’

So I took my own advice and traced my Half-Pint’s foot before I went on a major garage saleing trip a weekend back.  And wadd’ya know, it’s a good thing that I did!  We were frantically picking up good deals (and I mean FRANTICALLY), and Lisa said “Check out these boots!  What is a size 120?” 

Good Question, what IS a size 120?  Perhaps that was the model number of the boot (with no size to be found), perhaps it was a size in an unknown sizing scheme (I know my euro sizing and that was NO euro size!)

Truth be told, the boots were so cute I probably would have purchased them to give to another mom (and they would have been oh-so-lucky) – couldn’t pass up something like this in SUCH good shape when they were only $5.  But had I been on the end of my cash stash for the garage-sale adventure, I may have had to make some last minute important decisions. 

And my special handy-dandy paper foot-sizer  would have told me “BUY ‘EM”! 

My little Half-Pint couldn’t be happier.  This momma is pretty happy, too.
