Someone Trash Becomes My Treasure

This beautiful angel I bought Monday at one of
my favorite shops The Salvation Army Boutique as
I call it. I feel like the money that they charge on these
little decor pieces are well worth the money and goes
to such a good cause. She has cameos on her dress, a pearl crown.
This such a pretty treasure to show today. Also the amazing
thing about her she has a sticker on the bottom of her holder
with the ladies name and address. she lives in Bay City Texas.

A treasure indeed! On one occasion I found a beautiful hand-made plate at a thrift store, it had the name of the lady who so lovingly painted the two creamy roses on it, and the date (1963)... what I love about that plate is not the material, it is the hidden messages it has for all of us: the work of our hands will never die... Is so nice meeting you!

Hugs and blessings
