It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts, but I just have to show the Beautiful way the Lord provided for me through the thrift store last month! I have wanted a princess-seamed, black, wool pea-coat since I was 17. Never quite able or willing to buy one new (and unable to find a style I liked anyway) I have canvased thrift stores for years for my Dream Coat. Finally, last month, I found it – black, wool, princess-seamed and fits me like a glove! So what if it wasn’t on sale – what’s $8 to be united with my true love? (oh, wait, my true love is Jeremy – well, he likes the coat, too.). I just have to give the credit to God – how else could the perfect coat show up on the rack at my local thrift store, in just my size? (Wonder why it took 9 years? Talk to God – I’m just glad it’s here at last! )
This week’s finds included a pair of jeans that fit perfectly – girls, you know how hard it is to find a pair of jeans that feel like their made for you (12 looooong for me) – well, I got lucky this time! I also found a dress to wear to Rachel’s wedding at the end of the month – hooray! It’s from Dress Barn – I found it just after I finished telling my shopping buddy, Alyssa, how I thought I could never wear anything from Dress Barn after hearing Tim Hawkins on the subject. Oh, well. When you see the dress, perhaps you’ll understand why I caved!
