A couple of Fridays ago I shared that my dear little mother, my cousin, my dear friend and I were going out for the day. We drove a ways to the estate sale that was held by a dear friend of my mother. What a sale it was! Things to see, treasures to buy and, most of all, help and support to give to a family struggling with the loss of their loved one. Several treasures came home with me.
I bought several of the Bill Gaither and Friends Homecoming videos and DVD’s – for one dollar each. And there were a few CD’s I just couldn’t leave there. I have been enjoying them a lot.
I found some wonderful holiday tablecloths – I’ll show them soon. They need a little cleaning and pressing before they make their blog debut.
After helping our friends and shopping at the estate sale we stopped for lunch nearby and enjoyed a bit of unrushed time to be together, talk about our morning and plan the next stop along the way. We had passed a new Goodwill in the neighborhood so there was no doubt that we would return to check it out. When we did I found a Beth Moore devotion book and a pretty pin.
The following day my dear mother and I, accompanied by my sweetheart, stopped at a local sale that is held twice a year in a big barn. This season’s sale featured Spring, Easter and lawn and garden furniture and decor. Of course I forgot my camera in the rush to get to the bargains. I bought this sweet little basket. See the little bunny peeking out?
We had such fun together! It was another of those not-to-be-forgotten days. It was so much fun that we have planned more special days together. And when they happen – you’ll be one of the first to hear all about them.
Please stop by again soon. You are always welcome here – the door is always open!
With a grateful heart,
