Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

"Found Items"

Last week I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond to get a shower curtain liner. I should never be allowed to go in that store. I totally lose control. I want everything there. Sometimes I want two of everything in there. That shower curtain liner cost me ... well, lets just say a lot and stop there.


I found this great seasonal placemat:






And then I found in my stash that great fabric it's lying on. I cut a square, hemmed it, and stitched the placemat in the middle.




Isn't that just wonderful...$5 for the placemat and fabric from the stash and I have a great table topper!

Very cute! I also went into Bed, Bath and Beyond last week to get a shower curtain liner. I don't get there often and I forget how wonderful that store is. We spent lots. So between us, the store should stay afloat another year! ~Jeanne

You grabbed an opportunity and it turned out great.

We should have gone to BB&B together! I have a 20-percent-off-everything coupon! The bargain on your table covering should just about cover the cost of the shower curtain. Yes?

Marlene, you always do something terrific with little or nothing. Amazing!

NO! I wanna know how much you spent. I need to feel justified that someone else is just as out of control in that place as I am.

Karen said...

I'm with you. I want new towels and accessories every time I go in the store.

That is really impressive, I had heard of this before but never read up on it. I will have to go and see if there is anything I am interested in.
