I didn't go to the flea market Sunday morning because it was freezing cold and very windy.... ...when my alarm went off at 5 am and I heard that cold wind blowing, I pulled the covers up around my neck and went back to sleep for another 2 hours.
But this morning I ended up discovering some hidden treasure right here at home. I started tearing things apart again....continuing toward my goal to get things organized.... I took down two old baskets and a couple of wooden pantry boxes from a high shelf to dust them off and rearrange.... and lo and behold!
I found the old sleigh bells that used to hang from the rafters in the stand on my grandparent's farm! I had put them away after Christmas a few years ago and forgot where I stashed them! Hooray!
I dusted off the boxes and peeked inside...
One box was full of odds and ends of sewing items...
I haven't seen these little treasures in so long... I actually don't remember when or where I got them! ...but they were new to me again this morning ... ... it was as if I had just discovered them at the flea market... but I never left home!
I could save a lot of money this way! Shopping at home.... I'm also getting some much needed cleaning done and taking inventory. It's all good! :)
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.
