A Peaceful Place

I found a new thrift shop that I have fallen in love with. It's a ministry of a local Church where the store workers are all volunteer, the items are all donations and all proceeds except utilities of course go to local families/people in need. I have been several times now and have been so 'wowed' by the things I have seen. The store is set up like an actual it is in an older home in the historic part of the town. The volunteers have really out done themselves in setting an inviting atmosphere. There have been very few times that I have visited and not bought something

Here are a few of the beauties I found that I couldn't pass up...

I thought these metal decorator items were too pretty to not to take home

I love the linens they had...mantel scarves, table doilies...


Beautiful quilts...

 Floral pieces....
My big item was this chair and's not only beautiful but it's the most comfortable reading chair I've had...
One thing is for sure, it doesn't have to cost a lot to make your home "A Peaceful Place."

Nature's Market

I get so excited when it's time to visit the Co-Op. There's nothing better than freshly grown organic vegetables and fruits. It never ceases to amaze me at the beauty of GOD's hand. None of this would be possible without HIM.
Locally grown and harvested


I adore the open market area. This is where non members can shop as well.

This is one of the most gorgeous pieces of heavenly growth ever!

Some of my bounty

Check out the elephant garlic in the back

Patty Pan Squash and other organic goodies

Fresh organic mushrooms

Check out those green tomatoes

I definitely see a batch of green tomato bread in my future

Fresh organic fruit

Cherries and raspberries, oh my!

I love the red pears

Floral Heirloom

One of my Althea's is blooming. I so love this tree. The other is due to bloom anytime now. They're just as gorgeous as the one that Mom had when I was a child.
