It’s Day 88 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project, and it may be the earliest I’ve ever posted. I’ve looked forward to sharing some of the resale items I scored Saturday, and after taking advantage of the daylight to photograph them, I couldn’t wait to post. Though I spent little money, I got a lot of stuff, so I’m sharing them in a short series. All of these lovingly curated treasures have a few things in common: faith-based/spiritual theme, gold or bronze accents, and found a home in my bedroom. The fact that they’re Shabby Chic inspired is a given!
As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Chick who believes women crave beauty, comfort and function, not only in our homes, but in our work spaces as well, I hope you are inspired to scout out some inspirational decor for your home or office. Work on the home-front or in the workplace can drive us to our knees. If we surround ourselves with beautiful, inspirational things, rather than loose our minds, we’ll be able to keep the faith.
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.
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!
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.
