|I found this shell at the y-store. it's kind of plain looking, actually.|
|the 'coolness' is on the back of shell - it says 'Salerno, Italy - 9-23-1943' - I love that it has a 'story'!|
|also found a lovely little turquoise ring. it was blackened when i got it, now it is vintagey good.|
|the best find of the weekend was this painting. i did not realize at the time how perfect it was for my living room.|
|it seems quite old. it's an original oil painting, and the colors are 'just me.'|
|i have spent some time staring at it this weekend. i think it might be up there in the top 2 or 3 things i have ever thrifted. so beautiful....the first thought in my mind when i saw it was 'be still and know that i am God'|
so, there you have it...my segueway into a relaxing monday.
i finally decided i had better relax, now or never, as summer winds down. this is always a trick for me, this relaxing thing. but the weekend was a good start. i am trying to begin each day by thanking God and relying on HIS peace for the day. not my own, which usually proves to be rather short-lived.
here's to a week of whatever relaxes you....live the one life you've got, kiddos!
