Treasures ~ In Life and Found at the Lovely Vintage Marketplace

I hope you enjoyed the video and coming on a little field trip of vintage bliss with me.  If you missed that you can see more here.

With all the hardwork that Rita, Christy and all the vendors do to provide such a lovely experience .  . . I wanted to just give a little lovely to say thank you for all she does but most important for who she is.

I had earned some money from a bracelet I created/sold as well as some ‘magazine publication’ funds.   I was on a budget but oh the lovely steals I found.

To those vintage labels I’ll be adding a tag that reads something like, ‘I paid the price.  Love, God.’  I enjoy taking these lovelies and giving them new life and a new purpose.  God gives new life and purpose and for that I’m grateful.  I enjoy adding reminders to some of these finds that will encourage the family, friends and visitors.

Lovely and beautiful treasures can be used to remind us of God’s past faithfulness, of a mentor or warm memories.  They can have purpose but they are treasures that will one day be passed on or will fade away.  But there are treasures of a different kind . . . ones that aren’t tangible, that can warm the heart, last beyond a lifetime, and share hope.  For me, this past weekend . . . some treasures I’m holding dear to my heart . . . family, friendship, health (for myself and others I care about), beauty (whatever that may look like), fun, laughter, God’s creation and more.

With circumstances I’ve been experiencing lately, it presses upon me the even greater importance of recognizing, acknowledging and being grateful for the ‘treasures’ (intangible) in our life.

What are some treasures that you are holding dear at this time?
