Jeremiah and a Flea Market Find


Such a good reminder.



And this one is a gift.....


Speaking of 'thankful' - I find fun inspiration in a great bargain.

I am helping with a tea at our church and needed a creamer pitcher and a sugar dish for my table. ("Need" is relative - I actually already have two creamer/sugars - but neither will work for this tea.)
Anyway - I dashed through one of my favorite junk stores, the other day, and I found a silver creamer and sugar dish pair for $6. Then I noticed another set for $4. Grabbed them both....



$10
They polished up very well.
"No,"
I am not sure why I thought I needed BOTH of them, I am just a sucker for a bargain!

Your art is always a treat to see. When we complete our office re-do, I want to make a purchase from your Etsy shop.

Love your your treasures :)

Love the silver, but OHHHHHHHH! Love the 1 Thess. painting! That has been my favorite passage for a long, long time - it brought me through a rough time a few years back. Love it!!!

Your art is precious and what great finds, of course you "needed" them both!

Would you share what your favorite junk store is or would that be divulging secrets?? :)

Wow I like the verse from Thess. also but my favorite is the one from Jeramiah 29:11 . I think it's so cool that you make that apart of your artwork(www.scrapaddict4sure.com)

Trish, I love Jere 33! And your junk store finds are beautiful. I am one who loves to polish silver and I would have taken both too!
What a lovely blog you have.

Shanna - This junk store is Reed's Odds and Ends, just south of Watkinsville on 441. I've picked up several inexpensive silver pieces in there - back left corner.

Just found your blog! Love your paintings.

Hello sweet Trish - Popping in from The Inspired Room! I love your beautiful paintings. Especially this one with the Jeremiah verse. One of my faves. And your silver finds are fabulous! I am slowly adding to mine to display on my hutch. I don't have many thrift shops here so it's hit and miss. Thank you for sharing!

Blessings,
Marie
