Hello, Again!!

Hello, Dear Friends,

I am overjoyed to say that I am back from my illness and feeling absolutely fantastic!! I am thankful for your prayers and also for the helpfulness of friends and neighbors who rallied round while I was down and out.

So, what was the first thing on my agenda after being in bed for a week? Why cleaning, of course! But, first, I needed a little Thrift Shop Therapy! Off I went to my favorite re-sell shop and found the following lovelies...These are just a few of the wonderful items I found.

This small, fit-in-the-palm-of-your-hand-sized basket and the coconut will hold birdnests for spring...
This tiny prism will also hold a Spring time theme...

Here is a beautiful sequined frame, a gift for someone dear...
And a lovely saying, just in time for Valentine's Day...
It says:
"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart;
And sings it to you when you forget the words.?"

Have a lovely day today. I will be visiting blogs today, so give me time if I haven't gotten to your yet.

Love,
Elizabeth

Yes, you must have thrift store therapy to put a little sunshine into the day! ;) Glad you are feeling better. I love that coconut...I'd love to grow some exotic bulbs in that pot, or even some paper whites.

I'm so glad you're up and about and feeling yourself again.

What a lovely saying on that plaque.

Your blog is wonderful to read! I have gained so much fantastic insight on your life. I had no idea uncle Mark wasn't working! We will pray for you! We love you, miss you, and cherish the family dinners and time we get to spend with you. You are fabulous people! I put Willow in the hat you knitted everyday when she goes in the car! It's really cute on her. Unfortunately, her head will continue to grow and it eventually will not fit!
