Tattered and timeworn treasures of the heart....

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Hi everyone! Sorry, I have been neglecting my blog lately. It's amazing how time flies...and we just get that much older too!!

Not much new and exciting for me. I have been able to go to some garage sales and of course my favorite thing to do.....thrifting!!!!!

Lately, I feel like I am wasting the majority of my life working. I am looking forward to the day I can retire. I will probably be 80 at this rate (with bills and needing health insurance) but, I am sure many of you know what I mean. (and in reality, who wants an 80 year old receptionist???)

It seems as though when I have some free time, and when the weather is nice, I want to be out enjoying myself, and to me, thrifting is a hobby as well as an "addiction" (I hope I don't end up like those pitiful people on that "Hoarding" show )

A few weeks ago, I went to a little store called "Whispers and Thyme" with my sister-in-law. They had some really nice plants you don't normally see at Menard's or Kmart and so we got a few. It was a nice store, but I was a little disappointed because I thought they would have more antiques and such. They had the porch set up really cute though....here are a few pictures.

Here are some pictures of things I picked up today at the Ben Franklin antique store.....this image is from a book called "Sketches of Bible Child Life" (.50 cents)

This is an old communion dress ($9.70)

an old baby coat ($4.50)

These are a few things from the thrift shop
(blue bowl was .50 cents and picture was .75 cents)

Thanks for stopping by......take care and many hugs.....Chris.
