“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." ...Matthew 6:19-21
And that's mainly all there was: toys, games, boxes of 1970's clothes and a few dishes, making it one of the oddest estate sales I'd ever attended, but one which caused me to pause in my own seeking of things, for alas! All those years of their radical collecting, but for what? It was all still there. Everything had been left behind.
Oh well, I brought home a very retro bed tray which I'll show you someday, a book and these twins who were too adorable to use in their intended way:
Aren't they sweet? Someday I hope to paint that wall, green, then they'll stand out more.
From another sale I found this bowl and flowers:
... and was surprised they looked this well here (I'd majorly hesitated in that driveway, standing there for whole minutes).
My other favorite find was these aqua cuties which I sat upon our kitchen window sill for oh, the smiles they tug from my lips:
And now with thoughts of that crowded estate sale house haunting me, I think I'll gather a few items which met a need at one time, but have ceased to do so. There is a time and a purpose for everything under Heaven, including the stuff we lug inside through our back door.
"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." ...Luke 6:38
Yesterday I watched a delightful movie (via Netflix) with the always-wonderful Shirley Knight and lots of you would enjoy it, I'm certain.
It's called The Redwood Highway and takes place in an area of Oregon which Tom and I have driven through many times. Now, a few parts are scary and I did fast-forward through the drinking scene (and wondered at her wisdom in consuming liquor after what had just happened to her), but all things considered, this was a perfect film for a quiet afternoon.
And lastly ... Does anyone else enjoy the show, Major Crimes? For me, I never even care what the plot is about-- I just love each character so much. :)
