In our pursuit of freeing ourselves from an attachment to "things" our family has and continues to work towards simplifying what we do have. As I consider whether or not to keep something or if we really "need" something I keep the above quote in mind.
I want to share some beautiful finds from our local auction house this morning. They had some goods from antique/thrift shops that had gone out of business and were selling items at very reasonable prices. We carefully searched through the piles on the tables and dug through the boxes on the floor. I found two more glass bread pans which makes my total four. Now I can bake three loaves of bread and one breakfast bread all at the same time.
I found some bits of notions and fabrics, a glass canister which will hold our homemade granola, the wooden bowl pictured above, and some beautiful hand embroidered linens. They are used in our home on our meal table, on counters and during afternoon tea times. I paid $10.00 for all of the above. I almost never buy items new and spend very little unless it is absolutely necessary. It was worth the money to add a bit more beauty in our home.
Warm wishes, Tonya
