I purchased 3 cigar boxes this weekend at the sale in Warrensburg..... The first was a box full of unsorted buttons for $1.00..... I still haven't had a chance to sit and sort through them but have spied a few interesting items already!
The next two cigar boxes were found together and at the table in front of the local Catholic church.... They were mixed in with pots and pans and all sorts of donated items from the parishioners... Inside were these two lovely pictures and an amazing array of...
religious metals, crosses and rosary beads...
I was pretty excited.....there are over 100 items in these 2 cigar boxes!
Tomorrow, I will show you the rest of my finds..... Despite the rain and fog....I came away with some treasure...at least my kind of treasure! Have a restful night! :) Laura
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
