I took this of all my hearts, mostly from Target. It was part of my pre Thrifty life. I don't shop at Target near as much I would much rather have nifty thrifty then Target......How about you?

Pitter-patter


I love the rush of finding a treasure. It makes my heart go pitter-patter.
I really wish I got that excited about listing them in my Etsy shop. LOL I just joined twitter. I like it so far. Have a great day and if you are hunting for treasures I hope your heart goes pitter-patter!

I saw this little guy today at GW for 10cents. I am still finding cool Christmas goodies. I have this silver tree which had Christmas ornaments, then hearts. I decided to sit him in the tree looking down smiling at me while I surf the net.

This is a cute little book I found thrifting.. I decided to take it apart and am going to either list on etsy or use myself. I think I may frame some pages and try to find the exact color salmon velvet to accent it with. Honestly the written part is not that great and since the binding was coming apart this was the best way to use and enjoy it. Valentine sentiment that is not RED..........LOL

Goodbye 2008.
More than one blog I've read lately has talked about being content in 2009. That truly is one of my goals. I have been a Christian for over 25 years and when I go back to journals and notes I've written, that is one thing that I have written down many times. As I've gotten older and hopefully wiser I have valued the relationship I have with Jesus more and more. It is a security for me knowing I can call on Him. It doesn’t make me worry less,,,,,,,,,LOL I wish it did, the relationship prompts me to remember what the standard is, be loving, gently, kind, etc. AND CONTENT........I am going to work on that among a long list of other things,,,,,,,,,,,,,
