While I found a few 'things' this week...
...my favorite find was not a 'thing' at all!
Are you part of your local town's page on Facebook?
If not - you need to be! Just search for your 'town, state' and see if
there's a page and join it! I can't believe the world this has opened up...
things we never knew about right here on our community.
Case in point:
We have this pile of cement that we've been trying to unload...
On our town page someone mentioned needing a 'clean fill' place
I chimed in that we do too. Immediately - someone responded.
And the best part? The location was just 3 houses down the road.
Yes really! Feels like a little miracle! I'm also seeing people
find jobs from the page, learn about new restaurants,
churches and on and on. It's been great.
Now back to my 'things' finds... it's a small pile this week.
The pillow is for our summer cottage ($1)
and the old fabric (actually curtains) will land on Etsy.
I love these sweet hankies. At 10 cents each pack -
I'm happy to have them for my purse.
And I found plants! At one yard sale today I praised a flower
growing in a lady's shaded bed. She offered to dig some up for me!
I'm thrilled to have this hardy begonia to give 'style' to my back border...
Then at another sale - the oxalis (purple) was $1 and the
little plant (purple coneflower) was 50 cents.
Both are flowers that I don't have.
What a fun week this has been.
Now remember - go get on your community facebook page.
Would love to hear how it proves to be a blessing in your life -
cause I feel certain it will be! ~Joyce
