Over the last few weeks I have been trying my best to stick around home and not wander the streets of our little town looking for something to occupy my time, as in thrifting, coffee drinking, book reading, holiday shopping etc. I have failed miserably.
The reason being that I am still recovering from surgery and am trying not to be around crowded stores with throngs of sick people. Again, fail. Lucky for me
The GW was full of Christmas/Hanukkah decorations and trinkets today and I was able to find a few things to add to my decor, even though I haven't done one iota of decorating yet...
a Holly topiary, five small snow-globe ornaments, shiny silver ornaments, vintage red and silver ornaments and a small wreath...all for about $5. Most of the items were in "grab bags" which I find completely intriguing. You just never know what may be hiding in there...
today, my sweet surprise, in the bottom of the bag of ornaments, is the letters J-O-Y, with a small Dove attached. I think I will find a place for that to hang year round, along with the H-O-P-E letters I found earlier. In my mind it was meant to be.
Now, if I want to see my kitchen counter tops again, I really need to get my mantel and tree decorated. Then, maybe, I'll share some pics...maybe.
did you know that "thrifting" is not a word, according to spell check!
