After Christmas “FINDS”!

Cleaned out my pantry to start off my day…

Did I plan to???

NO, but, when it hits me… I do it!…

Why not!

and it feels so good to accomplish these things…

********************

Have you ever found Christmas remnants after Christmas…

These are the things I found yesterday around my house…

A Santa hanging high… you have to know I’m kinda short!…

An Angel holding a kitty…

I like cats so much… maybe I didn’t really want to take it down…

A few ornaments in the bathroom… They matched so well… they just blended in

Do you after Christmas shop?

I like to… but, only a few oddities so far this year…

Unique Thrift shopping had me finding this cute older Santa Sleigh with Sweet Reindeer…

It requires batteries and when inserted later… it worked!…

The little reindeer move their legs and it plays various Christmas Songs…

I played it for the last time this morning as I will pack it away until next year… 140101_002

Another thrift find…

Snowman Candles… aren’t they the cutest!… Using them as my winter centerpiece on my kitchen table…140101_017 140101_019

Makes me smile!

A brand new Christmas Mug with a pretty ceramic topped spoon to match… These 50% off sales at a thrift store are the best finds… 140101_020 140101_021

A few boxes, wrapping paper, clings , pot holders, placemats… was fun to find too…

“The fun is in the hunt!”…

Hidden inside were three objects… and the ornament that was attached to the outside…

What lovely surprises…

An “Angel Wing”

I’ve been needing a lift lately…Something to make things seem alright…Every day you hear such bad news on the television, emails, Facebook , newspapers, and from friends and relatives…You try not to let it get you down…I do have faith in God …and that He will provide for my needs…but, the world  creeps in once in awhile…I decided to help Bobby outside today…Get out of the house…get out of the doldrumsFresh air and sunshine usually does that…So,we cleaned up some limbs and vines that Bobby had already cut off of the fence…We, working together, usually make for a good team…And as we get older…we need to help each other more…As I was raking  near the back fence I found an “Angel WingIt is made of stone…I have no idea where it came from…In my yard, in leaves, with debris, tiny branches and dirt… raked up in a pile  …but, there it was!…It had been broken off of something, but I certainly didn’t have anything like it… It made me smile when I turned it over in my hand and being me, I feel it is a sign from God  that better days are ahead…and I can believe it because I know He shows me in such unique ways… Don’t ignore your sign…it may come in the most simple, wonderful way!

My “Angel Wing” that I found…

“My Kids!”…

I believeAngel Wingscome in many forms…My first Granddaughter  was sent to us when we were in desperate need of some comfort… A light to shine in our world…and she has been… I received my job with Special Ed Children , out of the blue…in an unconventional manner… and it was the best thing for me as a job and for my retirement…I met my husband   in a place I would never have thought of… and it has been lasting with joy…Our daughter-in-law  came into our family, making us so much more than we had been… Of course I could go on and on…because I truly believe in happenings that are meant to be…I could list bad as well as good…but, we all have them…It is how you meet those happenings…how we react to those happenings…and this is what others will see…Look back into your life and try to see “Your Angel Wings”
