Thrift finds of late


I thought I’d share my latest thrifty finds.   Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year and I have been looking for Christmas decorations at flea markets and second hand stores.  Here is what I have found on my lunch break on two different day’s in the past week or so.

blown glass tree and ornaments  50¢

wood/porcelain nativity set   $1.50

I’m still working on the quilt as you go log cabin quilt.  I hope to be able to show you the finished quilt within the next month.


Earlier today I received an email from the person I am paired up with for an Ornament Swap this year.  I’m looking forward to finding or creating an ornament for her.  I will have to get it mailed out to her by the 23rd of this month.


If you have followed my blog for any time at all, you know I am in awe of God’s creation.  On the way home from work this week the moon was so clear in the sky and looked so close I had to try to get a picture when I got home.   I took this one around 5:00 p.m. yesterday.

I also took pics of Elvis, our tabby.

Here are some current pics of me and my family.  It has been a while since the last time we took pics of my children and one of me and David together.

We have celebrated Veteran’s day this week.  I’m thankful for all those who have served to so that I am free to worship my God, write my thoughts and be myself.
We are down to 40 days until Christmas.
When will you put up your Christmas decorations or have you already started?
What is your Christmas decorating style?
Looking forward to your responses…
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
