1 WOOT! 2 WOOTS!! 3 WOOTS!!!
Joining Tam this week over at her regular Three or More Tuesdays. Go here to see more:
THREE, count them... THREE letters! hooray! Three weeks old, and full of news...some of it great, and some of it, stuff a Marine mama would rather not know about...
but oh it was good to hear from this guy! They have moved again, and are working hard on their Forward Operating Base when they are not patrolling and engaging with the Taliban. :-( Justin said he had definitely felt the Lord's protection over them. Please accept my gratitude, all of you who pray for these men... He said to please keep praying for God to protect them, and that his platoon would have no casualties...
He was his funny and joking and upbeat self, the Marine I know and love.
The second half of my post is not nearly as exciting, but just shares about Three of my favorite thrift places to browse and seek treasures...
First of all...of course...Goodwill stores. I found this vintage 3 tiered tower with beautiful fruit and gold rims. It reminds me SOOOO much of my Grandmother Shaw.
How it ended up in Goodwill...??????? Who knows? Should have stayed in somone's family.
Second, is The Salvation Army Thrift store.
I found this cheerful red reproduction of a vintage tray done for the Campbell Soup company by Jeanne Mack, an artist from Georgia.
Love pops of red in the kitchen.
Same store, found this yellow wicker and metal basket. (a place for Kurt to NOT lose his reading glasses)
Third, Village Lake Emporium
This cute little tile came from a place where one can find all kinds of pretty and interesting things. Kind of like a pretty Flea Market with scads of vendors and booths. I like to stop in there every once in a while to see what's new. Of course this little treasure suited our nest to a tee..
My favorite little thrift store in Matthews is not listed here, nor is Craig's List, nor the Habitat for Humanity restore, nor the new little thrift store down the road, nor the consignment store close by. I will save those for another Three or More Tuesday hosted by Tam..
Thanks so much for visiting, and I am a smilin' and grinnin' Marine Mom having heard some news from my Marine. Giving praise to God that he is okay.
God's best blessings to you and Bushels of hugs...
