Shabby Soft Green Antique Frame

You ever saw something you really wanted and it just wasn't for sale? I think we all have. I know that happens to me all the time. This frame was sitting at our local Salvation army when I first spied it. I quickly ran over to the sales girl and asked how much? She said-not for sale. I was really disappointed. There was a little sticker that did say that after I calmed down. It probably wouldn't have been there if it would have been for sale. Every time I went in there-I would always look at it(they were using it for display!). I finally asked the girl again-if you ever sell it-can I have a chance? She told me to ask the main lady. Next time I did. No it's not for sale-she asked why I liked it. I told her that I loved the color and it was just my style and that I would give her $20 if she changed her mind. A few weeks later I was in there-and it was gone-my heart sank. They sold it to someone else. As I went to check out-I got my courage up to ask the young man about it. He told me that it was in the back room on hold for some lady with blonde hair! I said -I think that's me! So I got to bring it home-It's always nice when it works out that way-usually it doesn't. I've got plans for this little lady-I'll show you at a later date! I'm linking up with Linda at http://ljm-alacarte.blogspot.com/ for Garage Saling Friday.

  12. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    I want to tell you that every time we encounter one of the many problems of life,we are faced with a very important choice, to look up & wait or focus on the problem and choose our own way. Leaning not on our own understanding, waiting on HIM and grabbing His hand will always lift us up and pull us through and our hearts desires will ALWAYS be met in HIS TIME
    Have a Joyful week,
    Much Blessings,
    Virginia
