My Man took me to the North Georgia mountains this past weekend. We celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary. My how time has flown!
I’m going to share about the trip in a few days, but for today, I want to share with you some of the treasures we found.
There is a little Flea Market in between Mountain City and Dillard that I love to go to whenever we are up there. You just never know what you will find. I found most of this trip’s treasures there.
The vendor that sold me this was very nice. We talked for a few minutes about where she finds her things, where we are from, chit-chat. I have a couple of red and white porcelain pieces that I wanted to add to. She had several pieces to choose from, so I decided to get a piece that I had never seen before. It looks like a bread pan, but is much bigger.
MM got this for me. I usually get the cheap, plastic ones. I have a hard time keeping a watering can. I’ll forget and leave it in the yard and the next thing I know, the dog has it, flinging it up in the air, biting on it and putting holes in it where it doesn’t need holes.
I’d like to see MoJo fling this one and bite it and put holes in it that don’t belong.
I was even more in love when I saw the price. Ten dollars was all they were asking.
MM was on the lookout for a table we could use to put the TV on. It has been above the mantel for years now and I have absolutely hated it there! I had suggested a night stand we have and don’t really use as a night stand. MM liked the idea, but wanted to find something else.
We searched everywhere we went for just the right table. On our search, we went to Franklin, North Carolina. There was a shop, which I didn’t get the name of, that just seemed to keep going. Three floors of antiques and collectibles, every room filled and each room a different theme. We looked at, probably 10 to 15 tables in that store. We went around the store twice, looking at everything. Mainly because it was pouring rain and we didn’t want to get wet. haha
We were leaving and as we were walking towards the car, we spotted this on a back porch with some chairs.
Our next stop was Lowe’s, in North Carolina!
MM needs to take the TV off the wall. When he does I will get pictures of the TV on the table and share with you.
When we share the gospel with someone, and they come to know Christ, it’s like finding a treasure. They may have felt old, worn and thrown out. Now they feel new, clean and found. It is such a joy and a blessing to see the change in them. Those are the best treasures that we can store up for ourselves.
What treasures have you found lately?
Off to find homes for my treasures!
