I am finally feeling better even though I still have a runny nose and a little sore throat, but not anything to keep me down. I have been in the house since last Tues and just had to break out...so....of course when I break out, my favorite place to go is the Thrift store..ok, ok, so I went and got my hair done first, but that was a necessity...lol...I nearly scared myself to death when I looked in the mirror, can you imagine how it scared everyone else.
I just love going to the Thrift Store on Weds cause it's 1/2 off day.
I found several items that I really liked, I have started collecting Snow Globes, actually I didn't consciously decide to collect Snow globes, I just seemed to gravitate to these 2 and since I already had 1 at home and anything over 2 is considered a collection, I've started collecting them. Aren't they lovely...The pictures don't do the 1st one justice at all.
The first one with the beautiful Angel in Red plays Beautiful Dreamer, the last known song written by Stephen Foster. It was published posthumously in 1864, the year Foster died..and it has always been one of my favorite songs, this one was brand new, it still had the price tag of $12.98 on the bottom, I got it for $2.00...go me...
After finding these I looked around a little more and found a couple of items I'll show at a later date, I started to pay for my 4 items, when the lady asked if I'd seen the items in the new room they had added on, well now...a new room says I, yes.says she, right back here...so off we go to explore a new heaven, more good junk to check out, I love that and am I ever so glad I did, the minute we walked into the room a picture on the wall caught my eye and I just fell in love..."(have you noticed I fall in love a lot when I'm in a junk store or Thrift store?)..humm could it be I'm a junkaholic...who me? NAW...lol...What did you ask? What did I fall in love with...why this little beauty and remember everything was 1/2 price today, so I wonder did I fall in love with the item or them price????? This is a 16" x 20" and will go perfect with several other pictures in my guest bedroom.
you notice the sticker price of $3.00, well I got it for $1.50...not bad I just love the peaceful scene of the little farm girl tending her sheep. The detail is just so lovely and with the glass on it I wasn't able to get a good shot with out a large white ball in the center of it.
That's some of my Thrifty finds for today...more to come later..
I am thankful for the grace that God shows me everyday, even though I am unworthy of his love.
