For any ladies that are following our blog, you all know the thrill of a great find at a garage sale, right? That perfect little throw pillow... :) You know what I mean! Well, this week, my beloved husband has teamed up with me and tackled at least 10 different thrift stores looking for furniture for our house in Delray. When we moved out here, we gave away most of our furniture, so we needed to find a dining set, living room furniture, beds for the kids, all sorts of stuff. And, amazingly, I think our time out shopping together has been some of the most fun we've had together in a while! It's been so funny hearing Daniel say things like, "What about THIS piece!" and "Do you really thing this goes with the overall VISION for the room..." Ha! It's just great. AND, the other cool thing is how great the used furniture and thrift stores are down here. People actually get rid of really great stuff! So far, we've found our dining table (from POTTERY BARN! Yay!), couches, 6 chairs that match the table, and we are on our way to pick up two twin beds that I found on Craigslist this evening.
Just wanted to share the joy. :) God is so good to provide for us in the simplest and smallest ways.
