Nice and Fresh

For the past couple of weeks we have been re-vamping the store.  Our end of year sale was a great success.  Out with the old and in with the new (old) stuff. Christmas merchandise is all gone and a new look is coming together.  Lots of  antiques have been brought into the store and lots more coming. 

We are so excited about all the new merchandise coming in.  We found so many cool things at market. Can’t wait for it all to get here.  

Make sure to stop by and look at all the fabulous pieces.

Prayer Request

Today is a very sad day. My heart goes out to all the individuals affected by the earthquake that struck near the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince. 

Friends lets join together in prayer for all these families. 

Thank you

Humbling Experience

Please forgive me for not posting earlier.  With Christmas come and gone, being sick, re-vamping the store and dealing with my internet problems …I just had not been able to.

As many of you might have read, the week before Christmas I made a weekend journey to Cuidad Acuna Mexico to make a very special delivery. I don’t know how to explain it, other then to say it was one of the most touching and humbling experiences.

As we traveled on this journey I felt a great sense of peace and excitement  to be able to complete this very important task that God had put in my heart to accomplish.  The whole trip was a huge blessing.

The blessings started the night before leaving when my cousin brought over 2 huge boxes of food for me to give to anyone in need. I was so thankful and moved by such a kind and  thoughtful gesture.

I was also moved by all of you that stopped by the store after reading my blog and are willing to help and all my blogger buddies that have also offered to take a hand in making this possible again next year. I appreciate you all so much. 

The biggest blessing to me this holiday season was seeing the children receiving these gifts little faces light up. Everybody was so genuinely thankful  for  us being there. It was truly magical and I thank God for electing me to experience it.
