Thank you all..

soo much for all your thoughts and prayers for me and the kids after loosing our Gizzy... we had a wonderful 16 years with him and i believe he had a great 16 years with us.. i have to share what Ellen in Oregon wrote in my comments..
" i always come to the conclusion that no matter how hard the end is, we are willing to bare the sorrow because it is the price we pay in return for a lifetime of companionship and unconditional love "
Her comment just seems to makes things so clear to me, i guess i knew this but reading it at this time gives me peace..  Thank you Ellen and all my Blogging friends!
Yesterday i went to Grand Forks (22ish miles) for a couple appointments so of course i stopped at a couple thrift shops. i wasn't expecting much for some reason but was so happy with my finds! of course i have them divided into three groups! eBay, timeless treasures and family/friends, i do think i am keeping the basket as it fits nicely in a cupboard i have...oh and one or 2 of the books...
jadeite was 12.00, for some reason can't resist buying the old cook books either..
 Vera Bradley purse... 3.99

 Cindy girlfriend and i went saleing on Saturday here in town as it was city wide sales we hit a whooping 46 or more.. i forgot to take pictures but here is one purchase.i did pay 5.00 for it

Cindy spotted this quilt and i bought it for 5.00!! GEEZ...

 love the old fabrics...

 again my Blogging friends thanx so much for stopping by!!
enjoy your day!              Jody


  1. I'm so very sorry for the loss of your beloved pet. The comment you got was perfectly stated. We all know how it feels, too. Of course I love your wonderful treasures. A quilt for $5...amazing! It's beautiful, too...such a beautiful old fashioned design. Love those green mugs, too! I have one that was my Dad's. I'm always on the lookout for one for my sister. Sweet hugs!

  2. Hi Jody, glad to hear you found a little comfort in Ellen's beautiful words.....Love that quilt, oh my, I would have bought right away and the Jadeite is a steal, great goodies....Hugs Francine.

  3. I was raised on a farm, so when an animal died, it wasn't much of a deal. I could never figure out why people got so upset when their pet died. HOWEVER--now? I know I would grieve and grieve and cry so much! My two cats bring such comfort and love to me. Great finds at the sales.

  4. Wonderful find on your outings, Jody!

  5. So sorry to hear of your loss.
    Never easy but the treasured memories sure do help.
    Giant hugs and love

  6. great finds as always it is town wide for us this coming weekend I hope I find a honey hole like you did.

  7. Fantastic finds! I have one of those large cookie tins with the exact design on it...one of my favorites.
    Great little Vera B purse!

  8. Thanks for sharing, I will bookmark and be back again. Travesti

  9. Oh I'm sorry! I've been so behind. I'm so sorry to hear about Gizzy. I agree with you, the love and years together (or whatever time) always outweighs the grief, but it still hurts and I'm very sorry for your loss. I enjoyed the pictures of your finds, quilts are lovely!
