Life has lots of minutes in it that are free for the taking.
These free memories will last a light time....

Free God given beauty.....

I am blessed with friends who seem to be in the right place at the
right time! From the free rack at the thrift plus 2 white skirts and a red one still in the laundry.
All mine,All wool, and All Free!

One of the blessings of small town life is Ta Da Dump.
I snatched 2 pairs of sunglasses for B and a pottery mug.
Yes you guessed it free:)

I have been making hot chocolate from the side of the Hershery baking chocolate.
I will never purchase a mix again, while not free it has been right under my nose all of these years.
 So much better why pay more for mixes? 
What was free in your day?
I am off to watch my beloved patriots win!!!!
You've always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself.

You really hit the jackpot with the wool skirt. White wool skirts are so hard to come by in the thrift stores. Freebies galore for you this week.
Yummy hot chocolate with Marshmallow would hit the spot after outdoors activities.

Look at the happy face on that little one coming down the hill. Fabulous fun, free but priceless.

Stay happy, Hugs,

You sure have great friends....I love the wool. Those colors are wonderful. I guess I have to start checking out thrift stores.

My free blogging friends bring me tons of laughs, good thoughts, awareness of other parts of the world, and, even though we've never met, a good spirit of love! (I'll skip the part about being jealous of your Ta-Dump finds! Ha!) Love your freebies!

Nice wool finds, I miss dollar days at the thrifts. I would hit the ones in my area and stock up. Now even thrift is higher priced, but I have enough stash for now;)

You are so right. There is so much love, beauty and joy to be had for free. All we have to do is open our eyes and look for it ~

I think it's time to spell your name correctly Cathy. I keep spelling it with a K. Sorry about that. Love those mugs with the cocoa in them. The best free things I got today were free hugs and kisses from Greg. Can't beat that!!!

Wonderful memories for sure are precious as this picture is too.
Great that you managed to find such great finds.
