Put On That Old Transistor Radio

I know that my post title is a song lyric, but for the life of me I can't figure out what song. It's a country song - I know that much. I've scoured my iTunes library and can't find it. Does anyone know?

Getting to the point of this post though....

Look what I found at a garage sale last week!!!

Isn't it beautiful? I think so.

(On a side note, yes, that is our grass, which means that splurging for the lawn fertilizer service this year is totally paying off!)

It was $5. Deal, deal, deal.

My Mom bought an antique sewing machine (much like mine below) at the same place for a total steal.  I love garage sales that have more than just old tupperware and stacks of magazines.

It has made its home at the top of our stairs on our old sewing machine table.   Now the dutch couple have something to listen to....

Are garage sales in full swing in your area?  Any cool finds?

    1. Go! You can't go wrong really (except maybe bringing home too much stuff....)

    1. hmmm...I just listened the whole song and I don't think so. There is a line in it that says "played by the dj on the radio" that's pretty close. Thanks for the suggestion though!! It's actually driving me a little nuts. There is a line like that in Browed Eyed Girl, but it's not the song I am thinking of. I will get it one day....and then I'll be sure to post it here :)

    1. Reba does have a song "Put on that radio". I'll have to check out the lyrics.

      Thanks!

  8. Sorry, I have no idea what song the lyrics are from. And Google was totally useless! Your transistor radio was a great find, and the sewing machine is pretty cool. The Dutch couple on the stack of books is cute :-)

    I've seen some garage sales in our area, but haven't checked them out. I need to have my own garage sale first to sell some stuff and make room to buy some stuff! ;-)

  9. What a great find!! It's so small! I'm sure it was a modern marvel (being so small and portable). I have only hit one garage sale this year, but (fingers crossed) there are a few in my near future.

  10. I'm trying to reduce clutter, so I've been resisting the sales. But there have been a few in my neighborhood! I've seen some really nice plant stands. I may have to snatch one up. Hope your week is going well :)
