I love consignment shops. You just never know what you may find. My late Grandma Bonnie, the ultimate collector, believed wholeheartedly that "one man's trash is another man's treasure." While I don't take my collecting to the extreme, like Grandma *might* have, there is absolutely value in reusing, repurposing and recycling.
One of my favorite thrifty stops, is "The Very Thing Consignments" in Haymarket, Virginia. On a recent visit, I happened upon a sweet book of quotes. Collecting words of wisdom ---to fill my soul and randomly spew at my offspring--- is yet another passion I have.
Inspired by the thoughts inside, I knew this little book should be mine and I knew exactly to do with it.
Admittedly, my daughter, Megan was a wee bit surprised as I began separating the spine from the pages. At least until, I told her she could select her favorite quotes and a colorful frame for each.
Pleased with her work, we used double stick tape and arranged them randomly on an otherwise barren wall; which will forever more be known as "our wall of inspiration".
"Make something good today" and "Work hard and be nice to people" are my favorites. How about you?
