Savvy & Chic Resale Retail Therapy

Savvy & Chic Resale Retail Therapy

Day 86 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project whizzed by yesterday and ended with me nodding off before I could post. That was actually a good thing because it meant the girl time spent with one of my dearest friends did the trick. Early morning Zumba, breakfast, a long treasure hunt at Goodwill, and hosting a small alfresco family dinner on my back deck freed my mind from some of the things that have been troubling me enough that I could sleep.

Me, Pink Collar Coach seeing life through rose colored glasses – literally. Time me with a true Shopping Soul Sister reminded me that the thrill of the hunt should still include resale shops,    my first home decor shopping love, not just TJ Maxx! Calvin Klein glasses, dress, belt, handbag and comfortable slides for power treasure hunting.

After a good night’s rest, I awoke on Day 87 thankful for my friend and my finds! I love taking someone else’s trash and turning it into treasure. God does too, as Joel Osteen reminded me this morning. He can turn a great mess into greatness. So, I got it from my Daddy!

Beautiful vignette I created – ceramic praying hands with small rose buds – $2 at my local Goodwill. So Shabby Chic! As is the mug with  a  spiritual spin on Keep Calm and Carry On.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Kibby in her fun cowgirl chic. Rachel Ashwell, the founder of Shabby Chic, who often sports a cowgirl hat and boots while treasure hunting would approve. 

As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Chick whose long-time dream is to curate inspirational items that inspire women’s home and work spaces, yesterday was a return to my decorating roots. Though I’ve come a long way from the young woman who scoured resale shops and flea markets out of necessity and love, I’m still the same woman who has always found true beauty in the things that others have discarded or not noticed.

Perhaps it’s because I’ve been discarded by some or not noticed by others. It makes me thankful that I was sought and lovingly found by my heavenly Father. My husband. And my friends, like Kibby who invited me to lunch when I was new girl in the office. Instantaneously we learned that we’re kindred spirits in the truest sense. We love the Lord, our families, our friends, and a good healthy session of resale retail therapy.
