Wednesday:) When You Find a Treasure

It’s the little things in life that seem bring me the most joy. This past Saturday, my neighbor Allison and I went to the Farmer’s Market in the morning, then we stopped at Goodwill to do a little thrift store shopping.

As we were scouring every shelf, Allison pointed out a beautiful framed jeweled cross in a shadow box that she thought I might like for my very extensive, ever growing, cross collection. Wow! It was gorgeous, and I couldn’t believe the price. Lately, I’ve found that the thrift store pricing isn’t that thrifty. Sometimes items are priced more than what I can find new at the Dollar Store or Walmart.

This treasure was only $4. Woa! It was all dusty and dirty, but when I brought it home and cleaned all the mirrored crevices with a Q-tip, it definitely was a treasure.

It’s hard to tell from the photo, but the longer inset part of the frame is mirrored glass, and the cross has lovely jeweled crystals. On the back, on a gold sticker it says Belinda Miley Collection. I looked up the name, and these are pretty popular and pretty expensive collectibles.

So, my $4 thrift store find turned out to be quite the treasure. I just loved it because it was beautiful and would be a lovely addition to my collection. I’m pretty humble, and I don’t mind digging through the dirt to find treasure.
