We made a fast trip to Santa Cruz this weekend to help Tami put on her annual breast cancer yard sale.  She has been doing this sale for the past 10 years as a fundraiser to finance her walk in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in San Francisco.

She had a lot of stuff to sell and a lot of people came by to buy.

The day's entertainment was the neighbor's cat that just kept everyone in a happy mood.

Fun was had by all.

"Boy, this entertainment business is hard work."

The topper of the day was that she raised a little over $900.00. That is half of what she needs to do the walk.

With those kinds of monies being raised from all the participants, maybe they will be able to come up with a cure sometime soon.

"I'm so pretty!"

We also went to dinner on the wharf again.  This time in celebration of our Mother's Day and her birthday.

"So very pretty!"

My Mother's Day gift.

"This is just too pretty."

It was a good weekend...


I'm sharing all the fun with:


  1. How great Tami raised plenty of money with her yard sale, its for a good cause.

  5. That yard sale looks like my kind of sale. Is that the sun i see? We don't get much sun over here in England....xx

  6. Hi Judy, Looks like Tami had lots of stuff in her sale. Did you find any treasures? I didn't realize it cost so much for the walk. I hope she can get the rest of her funds in time. I like her white picket fence and the cat does seem to be having a great time! Thanks for sharing and have a great week! Gina
