Lake Trip, Why I Love Craigslist

Ponderosa Lake, McCall, Idaho

Lake Trip-
We were going to do an overnight trip to McCall, but with my bronchitis bug, we decided for a day trip instead. Since it's fairly high in the mountains, there was still a lot of snow on the ground. We went to the gorgeous Ponderosa Lake State Park in McCall, and took some photos, lunched and shopped. I found some fun thrifting finds as usual!

Park cabins, really nice! We peeked inside, pretty good set up with million dollar views. 
Might try these next winter/spring

$6.00, little handmade tote, needs a little cleaning

I love this cobalt blue medium sized mixing bowl, $4.00

.80 cents and cute!

Why I Love Craigslist-
After our coop re-do we had lots of leftover, misc. building materials. To the dump? NO way! Off to the free section of Craigslist. Within 2 hours of posting the ad it was all gone, off to a new life- an artist for making arts & crafts and a coop builder-

12 sheets of good, used fiberglass roofing we didn't need

Used plastic roofing

Lotsa lumber

Happy spring!
