Peacock Inspired Shirt From Goodwill Best Thrift Ever

I love it! I consider this to be my best Goodwill find ever. It is 100 % silk although I am sure if it’s Peta approved to wear silk anymore. Do they really make those little worms work like slaves and steal their silk? I didn’t go looking for silk, I just came upon it. I certainly wasn’t going to pass the shirt up I found it. So I am very sorry to the worms who made this shirt. You did a beautiful job. My photo does not do it proper justice.

The bookstore (the best place to be)

It was the Goodwill this time around.  The little book on the top of the pile is a beautiful little pop-up book about the birth of Jesus.  Teacher Man by Frank McCourt sounded interesting but I could not read Angela’s Ashes written by him because it was so very sad and depressing.  The Last Sin Eater by Francine Rivers is a great book about suffering, seeking, and redemption.  It is set in the Great Smokey Mountains and revolves around a little girl named Cadi and a person known as the sin eater. During the early nineteenth century in the lowlands of Scotland and the Welsh border district Sin eaters were a common practice.  It’s a fascinating story.  The top and bottom books are for my grandson.
