Thrifty finds

Image may contain: people standing, sky, tree, outdoor and nature

Yesterday our local second hand store threw a huge fair, and I found several nice little dresses for the girls, and one for myself. This morning, up they went on the cheerful sunny clothesline (two leftmost and third on the right). I’m very happy with them. They cost next to nothing, and are of much higher quality than anything I could have afforded to buy new.

Enjoying another nice summer day of homemade lemonade, working in the garden, playing with the baby chicks and hand-feeding Little Pea, our peafowl chick, who now runs to us to get a treat whenever we approach.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the amazing people who were among the first buyers and readers of The Landlord. I know some of the downloads came from the blog readers, and I am truly overwhelmed by your generosity. I hope you will take a few minutes to leave a review once you finish reading – it would mean the world to me.

    1. I can’t imagine commiting to this kind of work either. But on the other hand, most of the generations on the face of this earth did that. We’re just spoiled. 🙂


  1. I shop quite often in second-hand stores. There is one, a little distance from our home, that is in a more affluent area, and has *really* nice things. As you said, much better than I could afford to buy new. It is also a means of support for the local congregation, so I am helping them and myself. (And that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!)
