My Lucky Finds- Clothing & Jewelry Edition

Posted on: October 19, 2013

 I was missing my mother like crazy last week, don’t know why ,

it’s been over four years and it just happens out of the blue. 

While searching on Ebay, I came across this necklace and felt her presence, as she comes to me in butterflies. I loved that while walking with my niece this summer we had a butterfly follow us  most of the way and she got to feel that with me! 

This necklace was just something that I was attracted to, and my daughter is making fun of me about.

She is saying it looks like a symbol associated with Superman movie….

Now for my Goodwill Finds

Prior to losing weight, I steered clear of maxi dresses, I just thaouthg as a wider petite it highlighted that! 

I love this fun one that even has pockets!!!! 

Keeping my fingers crossed that somehow my husband earns us that cruise, so I can wear this! 

$6.99

I am giving an orange one (I bought two of this one) and the cobalt one to a dear friend who is a single mother, looking to start a job soon.  i plan to style mine over the Fall/Winter with layers .

I loved the number of colors in this top that would make it a very versatile addition to my wardrobe.

$2.50

I just can’t resist picking these vests up when I find them as they are expensive in retail stores.

At Goodwill they are priced at $4.99 but if it’s the colored tag of the week it’s 50% off.

It’s a good thing I give some to a dear freind, as this could be getting out of hand!

Dear Readers, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I’ll be back next week wrapping up my Toods for Happiness Series.

Gratitude

I am grateful that a friend and I went down to the beach boardwalk for a long walk and nice chat.

I am grateful that on the way to her GRE at 6 am   this morning, my daughter had to turn back and grab her car due to car trouble, allowing me a quick hug and wishing her luck on getting a seat.  (this test is one specific to her major to boost her chances of getting into a Phd program and she missed the registration date, so with seats left it is first come first served…) 

I am grateful that my daughter plans well and her plan to get there super early allowed them to turn back and grab the car with plenty of time to still get the testing site way early.

I am grateful that while on my walk at the beach, that my son cleaned up and I came home to an empty sink!

The dresses are cute, and I really like the striped shirt. I can relate to the children making fun of my “likes”; my husband gets in on it. They all call my cardigan sweaters “granny sweaters”. You are very fortunate to have help cleaning up the kitchen! Have a good weekend!!

Nothing like family to keep us grounded…. DH never gets in on it, but does wrinkle his nose now and then…

Especially love those target dresses, Tracey.

Thanks, they will be so versatile and perfect material for packing for warm weather trips…
