As for new beginnings and jobs, my dear husband is back home again, for good. His job of six years, away from here has turned into a job locally and there will be no more driving back and forth each weekend. We are staying put in Prescott with our gardens and chickens and country life. Yay!
I have seen a picture of Joshua, now in Malawi and look forward to hearing from him when he gets that sort of thing worked out.
The house in Brighton has served its purpose and is now for sale. We are all praying that one goes quickly and we may carry on with a more normal life once again.
I hope your week is off to a good start! Thanks for dropping by.

No really good reasons have been given and sorry, "Cash flow issues" isn't a good enough reason for me. I know that folks drive from some distance to frequent this particular store and it was also a "meeting place" of sorts as you would often run into the same folks over and over again.
It sure has been a good source for all manner of things, both needed and gifted and thrifted.
The need for employment, as well as a place to give new life to cast-offs and a source for more affordable items certainly hasn't gone away. It will be missed as will the employees we got to know as well.
It will be interesting to see what happens next or who might take this over. At least we still have a few other thrifting options in the area.

I got new file folder envelopes so what I kept would not be falling out the sides. Sold all the stuff I parted with.
They have been picked up here and there, most of the packages opened, a few used and then thrifted out when no longer needed. Seems a good plan, to get rid of things you don't need any more.
Above, just the round doilies. The variety and detail of each very different from the others. How do you choose which to keep?

Do you have something from a holiday that you like to keep out all year round?

Ours was quiet and simple and relaxed. Nice.
I hope the new year has gotten off on the right foot and that you have a healthy hope for the days ahead.

I found this small Christmas tree while thrifting last year. Not too big and nicely arranged, it adds a little sparkle and bling to the dining room.
