As a young wife and mother on a very limited budget, I would faithfully save my S&H green stamps. Then when I had them all stuck in their books (a very messy process usually), I would go to the S&H green stamp store to spend them. I usually got a new shower curtain or some pretty bath rugs for my bath. I always liked to make my home as pretty and inviting as possible. Did you save stamps?
I have had some trouble downloading pictures to my journal today so I am not sure how this post will turn out. Hopefully, you will be able to read it and the pictures will be visible. I love beautiful handpainted china and this dish is one of my favorites. I would love to be able to paint like this.
Today I will close with one of my favorite quotes: "To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you."~Lewis B. Smedes
I have learned that life is too short to have negative thoughts and feelings. I try to be thankful for each day and enjoy it to the fullest.
Love and blessings to you, my friends.
