My Garage Sale Finds!

Hi Everyone! 
I'm going to share my garage sale Finds from a few weekends ago!
This was an unusually good Garage Sale day 
(there are lots of times we go and I don't get anything) 
And most of the time things don't just fall into our laps! lol!


This is a talbots Pure Silk Dress that
 I got for $.50 at a church sale
(I couldn't find anything wrong with it)


This is a Linda Matthins New York which
 I think is just a J.C. Penny brand.
It still had the tag and looks to be brand new!


I got this skirt for free and am planning to 
eventually turn it into a purse
(I love dark denim!) 


I picked up this little bag for $.10 
It's is brand new condition!

 #5 And #6

These Kenneth Cole Reaction flats were $1.50
I've been looking for some Black flats and 
God provided them at just the right price!
(Not to mention they're adorable! lol!)

And this Rosetti Purse was $.50
(I LOVE the long shoulder strap!)


And Now for the FUN of the day.......................

This is an ADORABLE little ducky that I got for $.50 
It quacks and opens and shuts it's mouth! I LOVE IT! 
(P.S. It's for the church Nursery)

Grand total for the day was  $3.60!

Thanks so much for joining me!
And I hope you all have a great weekend!

When should I start my new series? (Lessons From Narnia!)

Hi everyone!
       I would LOVE it if you vote on when I should start my new series! It's called Lessons From Narnia. The poll ends on September 8th because Narnia is my FAVORITE series of books and movies and since September 8th is my Birthday (and I ALWAYS watch the first Narnia movie (The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe) on my birthday I thought it was fitting! I hope you all have fun deciding when I should post it!

     Remember the poll closes September 8th!

(NOTE) I'm using pictures I've taken from my
 copy of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
The original work is not mine!

Giving Thanks to God!

                                Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks: unto thee do we
                                give thanks: for that thy name wondrous works declare
                                                                      Psalm 75:1

                                                Giving thanks always for all things unto God
                                           and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
                                                                                          Ephesians 6:20

                                     By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise 
                                        to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips
                                                    giving thanks to his name.
                                                                             Hebrews 13:15

                                       Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to                                                                            triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour                                                                          of his knowledge by us in every place.
                                                                                   2nd Corinthians 2:14

                                                Let us come before his presence with
                                              thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise  
                                                    unto him with psalms. 
                                                                                 Psalm 95:2

                                      Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and 
                                     supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made
                                                      known unto God.
                                                                           Philippians 4:6

Thanks so much for stopping by!
