No Fear

Are you feeling compelled to be obedient to something in scripture or the Spirit's leading in your life?  Is there fear that is causing you to hesitate?  That fear is not from God...  (gleaned from our morning sermon)
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.  II Tim. 1:7

Finding Finds with a Friend

I'm sharing some of my favorite finds from this week with you.  These happen to be all paper ephemera - just sweetness...

This sweet autograph book is unused with pretty stamping on the pages inside...

Lovely Victorian Christmas booklets and cards...
And a sweet mini French book...

These are all available on my Quilted Nest Etsy Store

My dear friend from Bella Rosa Antiques and I had a blast at our local outdoor flea market. 

That's her in the pink jacket - she LOVES pink!  Check out the treasures she found on her darling website.  If you love Victorian, French and girlie goodies - you'll be in heaven!   If you use Firefox - be sure to scroll down on the page to see all the goodies.  She currently has a glitch on her site that leaves a blank space at the top.  Happy Browsing and Shopping!

Oh - and I'll leave you with my favorite vendor's display of the day... love that blouse!

Fall Table

So - I like to decorate with what I already have on hand.  This is my current dining room table scene.  Everything came from thrift shops, yard sales or was free.  Love the colors of Fall...

The time seems to have come for me to enter the blog world.  You are welcome here!  I desire to have a blog that glorifies the Lord and speaks to my interests of home decor and more - all while being budget conscious.  Your comments and contacts are always welcome.  

Let me show you a bit of what I do every week.  I volunteer at a local thrift shop which benefits Mennonite Central Committee.  

In addition to pricing antique and holiday linens - I also do some displays on top of the dress racks.  It is great fun for me to create these little vignettes.  Currently I'm featuring a bit of Christmas  - all from items that have been donated to the shop.  Have a look see...

Everything in the displays are for sale at amazingly low prices.  If ever you are in the Mount Joy, PA area - come and visit us!
