My Salvation Army Finds

Sorry folks, I dont usually post twice in one day but I couldnt wait to share...My oldest and I went out today to spend some quality time so that means browsing in Good Will, Salvation Army, Ross Dress for Less and Target...
Got some stuff.... but my favorites were from the Salvation Army. I found a candle globe, a 3 ft trencher, berry/star wreath, a wooden spoon and a pot (no pic of the pot)
Sorry, the pic saved sideways....

Can you see the berries on the wreath?

This pics not the best but I hung the weath above the TV... Lets see how long it is before anyone

Well those are my finds for the day...

Thanks for viewing...

Simple Joy~Beautiful Blessings

Its a cold rainy, icy morning here in central PA, but as I sit here sipping a hot cup of coffee, I wanted to share my thoughts.
I am blessed... Yes I whine and complain, and there are things that happen out of my control that I dont like, but I am truely blessed. Here are some reasons why: Some simple joys.....

A hot cup of coffee on a cold morning
Seeing the beauty of huge snowflakes falling (even tho I hate snow)
Ice coated trees- as long as the electricity stays on
A cute doggy snuggling in bed in the early morning
Two girls giggling in the night
No where I HAVE to be
Hubby being home
Teen in a good mood
Upcoming breakfast that I dont have to cook!!

This week has been crazy... Evaluations at work, more work than I know what do do with. A cranky 9 yo who is destined to be a lawyer who likes to argue about EVERYTHING. Then a pipe burst in the garage flooding it with about an inch or two of water. The first nice we had ice, I went out to pick up my teen and slipped down 3 concrete steps... and let me tell you... those bruises hurt. Thank God I didnt hit my head....

So... Friday at quitten time was a real joy.... had some me time. (if you call grocery shopping alone me time) and some cuddle time with the hubby...
So I am going to enjoy this weekend... Friends, food and fun is in order.

Have a happy weekend... and count your blessings...
