Norman Rockwell painting..
nope..nor even a sighting of that famous artist!..
just a super great afternoon!
just ask my hubby how to reach me if I am NOT at home..
he will say..
"one of three places..
King Sooper's..(our Kroger grocery store)
City Floral.. (if the weather is bad,cold, gray..
I go there for medicine for my soul...with Nikon!)
Goodwill..for any, all or no particular reason..
today it was the latter..
where I wandered at will, picking up, looking at, declining..
but strangely plates hopped into my cart..
as did shirts in my hubby's size..
a darling pair of shoes which fit me perfectly..
as well as did several other items..
but the highlight of the afternoon..
was meeting two new friends..
Jan the mom, and Sarah,the daughter..
in our conversation, we discovered we are neighbors...
well sort of..
with a major 4 lane artery separating our neighborhoods..
at least we are in the same general area, sharing the same zip code.!
No, I did not have Nikon with me in the store..
(I only take pics inside the store when I have permission to do so)
Jan and I share another connection.. the Gulf Coast..
in the same area as my old stomping grounds..
We probably even know some of the same folks when you get to the nitty gritty details..
we just didn't get that far..
they were searching for men's long sleeved shirts for a particular project..
and what a wonderful project it is..
I was amazed..never even considered such a clever thought !
I will not divulge any details..
She is a blogger also!
she says she's a novice..
and I say we all started somewhere..
but she will be posting all about this nifty crafty project..soon!!
which I promise each and everyone of you will Love..
she has only posted a few times..
but her items and tutorials are over the top!
she is such a delight in real life..
I think if we all visit..
leaving words of encouragement..
she will blossom,filling the room to grow..
with even more of her "upcycled" projects..
while growing a garden full of new friends!
I always say a trip to Goodwill is always GOOD..
But today's trip was just Great!
especially in finding NEW Blogging FRIENDS!
