Eyes wide open

Have you ever felt like you were being rewarded for just keeping your eyes open?  Well, I do!  First there was the find of a $20 bill, while taking my exercise along a dirt path a few nights back and then yesterday I stumbled upon an advert for a couple of sewing books (titles that happened to be on my wish-list).
 

Both books are in new condition, including the patterns - which were never opened.  Then the seller mentioned she had a couple more books that she hadn't listed.  Would I be interested?


Um, yes, please! Two more titles that happened to be on my "someday I'd like to own these" list ( and rather coincidentally, just having been re-borrowed from the library for the umpteenth time this past Sat.).

 
I scooped up all 4 titles... in exchange for that $20 bill.  I guess there are times in life that it literally pays to keep your eyes open. ;o)

  2. This must have been a day for Book Deals...I was on my way to B&N to look for a Beginners Quilting Book and decided to stop by our newly opened Half Price Book Outlet. I never made it to B&N after that stop...I walked out with 11 Books for less than I would have paid for 1. Happy Reading!!
