Thrifty Thursday #10 - A bit of a story...

Over the last week I was feeling a bit down - I was worried about my little business Paisley Vintage and wondering if I was doing the right thing. It came to a head on Monday, and when DK came home from work I headed out for a walk to try to clear my head.

When I walk I just walk as far as I can for 20 - 25 minutes, and the turn around and come back again. I was thinking about the things I've done, the people I've talked to, the pieces I'd completed. As I turned the corner back into my street I thought - I just need a sign to tell me I'm on the right path, something that tells me it's OK. And that's when I saw this...

I could have done a dance there and then. I guess you either believe in this stuff or you don't, but when I saw that wardrobe, in perfectly lovely condition, I just felt better.

The wardrobe was about four houses from mine, so the people must have hauled it out of their house after I'd walked past the first time. It was way too heavy for me to carry back on my own, and even with my husband we couldn't do it. So the next morning we went down and stuck it on the roof of the car and brought her home. And when I saw stuck her on the roof, I mean it literally. No ropes. I closed my eyes. But she got here safely so I guess it was just meant to be :)

It might sound silly but it was the sign I needed. What about you? Do you believe in signs?

Thanks for stopping by...
