Good Evening bloggers!
I hope everyone is having a great week! I know people are struggling with this heat. I worry so much about our elderly here in South Carolina who do not have air conditioners,or do not use their air conditioners because of the high cost of electricity.
I am thankful that God has blessed me to have more than the comforts in life!! I think sometimes we or I forget how much I truely have in comparison to others. Or I just take it for granted.
May the Lord Bless you and keep you! May the lord shine his light upon you and give you Peace!
This was a project I worked on over the weekend. This piece of MDS board was in the box with our treadmill we bought. So , me being don't throw any thing out if you can use it, came up with this idea.
I had all this scrap book flowers on hand so I used them for this project. Also the trim I had as well. The little brow heart at the top I cut from a botched embroidery project. The photo of the girl was a photo from a new frame. It was the display picture they used to show you how a picture of a person would look in the frame. So on this project, I used up, repurposed and recycled. I think I did good! Whatcha think? The picture of the girl looks wrinkled in this photo for some reason. It is not wrinkled in real life............I don't know why.
Yard sale finds!!
This little rose tea cup nite light was 50 cents
These two plates were 75 cents for the scalloped one and 50 cents for the other one.
I have had questions about where and what I do with all the stuff I buy at yard sales. Well, I do enjoy shopping and yard sales. But I have a rule, for as much as I bring in, I try to donate that much out. I usually keep a a couple of boxes available. When I clean I try to find ways to purge! These are my purge boxes that are going to Good Will. I place things in these boxes until I get them full and off they go to Goodwill. They are sitting in my guest room right now. Usually I keep the boxes in my storage space upstairs and just add to them as I find things. I also have a bag of clothing in my bedroom closet to go to Good Will as well.
