By His Grace,





I went thrift store shopping with these sweeties this week!!!! So much fun! We had such a fun time with our dear friend ‘Cindy Lou’ as we so fondly call her! And we came home with lots of fun treasures! The Thrift stores we went to were so fun because they were new to me! Did I say we had fun???




The Jewelry was cheap, you can see the prices on the tags. Someday I will post a picture of all of the bangles that I have. But right now I am ashamed to say there are more than can be worn without sounding like a wind chime. And these boots were my special treasure! Don’t they just look like old-fashioned button up boots!? The brand was BC! and they were $4.99! Steal!

9 Grace Livingston Hill books! for $8.00 Yay! Only, I bought the first set that you see on the right for $5 a piece! too bad I didn’t know the going rate. . . The Middle picture is of all of the new vintage books that I have bought within the last two months. The back row is a set of ten by Grace Livingston Hill off of ebay for $15. I am such a book snob! I love the classics! The more vintage the better! If it smells old I will bury my nose in it and inhale deeply! I need a storage unit just for my books! They are literally everywhere!

Love my Family! We don’t all get dressed up at the same time so it is unusual to take a family picture! Wow! Those littles are growing fast!

I loved how all of our outfits turned out! We all love wearing homemade skirts all at once! It makes us feel like we match but with our own personality! The Skirt SG is wearing is one I just made and I must say I am very pleased with the results! We had a lot of fun with extended family and fellowshipping with family we don’t get to see often. My favorite part of the night was washing dishes with My uncle and great uncle. And trying to fish silverware out of the garbage disposal mechanism in the sink. Don’t worry, my uncles took good care of me and I still have all of my fingers! Although they did scare the daylights out of me when they kept telling each other to stay away from the switch and asking a lot if it was off. Smile
