The cushion on the rocking chair was purchased on Saturday at our favorite thrift store for $.25.
I couldn't resist bringing in the "Christmas tree" - a gift we received over 10 years ago. Its slim proportion has made it a versatile addition to our holiday decorating. I wrapped it with new lights but will wait to put bulbs on it until after Thanksgiving (maybe).
We returned home with fresh enthusiasm and new ideas for life and ministry. My husband tidied his workbench and finished several small projects. He also helped me rearrange our living room. He painted the base of the coffee table (which had been sitting in our yard). We topped it with a piece of glass purchased at a garage sale Saturday.
This is an example of the "small" projects he finished....a small, vintage cedar box with a quaint cottage scene on top (thrifted or garage sale, I can't remember for certain).
