I love going to yard sales because of the unknown and bargains.  You never know what you'll find.   This summer hasn't been the best one in terms of cool finds, but today I finally scored. Finding Breyers at yard sales is a rarity, and it's even more rare for them to be adequately priced ("It's a Breyer, so even though there may be cracks, rubs, and weird colors from my lack of care, I should still get big money because it is a Breyer"). Today on our way home, we stopped at a random one and came upon a table of Breyers. They're bodies, and I bought all of them except for the Family of buckskins and the grey classic cantering horse. My sister never comes to yard sales with my mom and I, but today she did. She realized her strong love for late 1990s-early 2000s music and now has a collection of them. My mom found some type of gardening thing that apparently is cool. I'm not into gardening, so I'll take her word for it!
Earlier this summer I found The Walking Dead fabric at my local craft store and had plans of making pony pouches. Tonight I finally did.
Sewing is still a craft that I'm learning, so instead of having one layer to the pony pouches there's two. I'm happy with being able to do more than one pattern for the bag. The patterned fabric is on the outside with the fleece on the inside. The second one turned out better than the first and I can't wait to make a third. Today was a nice score in more than one way!


  1. That's such an awesome find! I love the Gem Twist!

  2. Amazing find!! I'm a HUGE walking dead fan and hopefully I can find some at the Joannes near meh. :)
