{Thrifting and Hunting} LOVE IT!

And when I say Hunting I am talking about Whitetail deer hunting....LOL! 

Me and man just recently went for a few days to do a little bow hunting. Yes, we're just regular old country hunter's and enjoy deer hunting together but there is just something about being out in nature and looking around at all that God has created. It just WOWS me! 

 Yep, I look like a little boy with a pink camo backpack. Ha-ha! 
But...there is just something about the peace and quiet in the woods. A time to meditate and reflect! Sometimes we just simply need to regroup!

But I must  tell you that though I am a huntress...I don't go anywhere without my lipstick!!!

We truly do enjoy the outdoors...

 





However, I did take a little time to do some "Thrifting". And my man is so good to not complain and bless his heart...he will sit in the truck and wait till I return with my stash! YEP....I think he's a keeper!

I have several friends that will be recipient's of some of my thrifted items. I love it when you have friends that you can tell what you paid for something because you both are so proud that it was a DEAL! LOL! And, the funny thing is that when I looked at several of those items I knew exactly who would love them! 
I was very excited to find that wreath holder on the left at the top. 99 cents and it's adjustable. Oh yeah...this will be put to good use. Not quite sure what that thingy is on the left-bottom. I liked it because it looked rustic. My man said, "It looks rustic alright...it looks so rustic that it needs to be thrown away! LOL! I am always in need of an easel and the little flower pots I couldn't pass up. Three for 29 cents!  I will be starting some seedlings and will be using them.  Matter of fact when I returned home from hunting I found my collards that I planted from seeds sprouting like crazy...


And for those of you gals that are like me and love a good deal...I got all those little thrifted items for $7.50. YEPPERS!

The only thing better than sitting in a tree stand or ground blind while enjoying the outdoors is getting a text with a picture of this sweet grandgirl. She had her bath and was ready for bed but....she has found out that she can roll over and over and over....so...instead of sleeping that is what she done for a while! LOL!  


 Ooh...I can just kiss her lips off! 

During my quiet time as I would pray and just mediate it seemed this was the scripture that was embedded upon my heart.

So thankful that our Lord has mercy and compassion for us daily! He is so very faithful!

  1. I love all your thrift finds although, like you, I have no idea what that rustic thing is. It probably had a very handy use at one time. What a cutie. She will be rolling all over the place now. I love all those dark curls! Have a great day.

  6. I'm not sure what that thingy is either, but I love it. I would probably put a canning jar with flowers in it! What great finds. My husband is not a hunter, but so many of our friends are. I kinda wish he was. He's "outgrown" or gotten too old to play basketball and other sports so he sticks to golf. I wish he had a hobby for the winter. It's coming soon. We live in the land of cotton all of lives and people came from the North to hunt on GA land.

  11. Hi Cindy, oh you look so cute in your camouflage outfit and sporting your lipstick. I am a girly girl and that would be me for sure.
    My goodness you find the best treasures. The rustic item is for a canning jar I believe. Try and see if one fits. Your hubby is so nice to let you shop and wait. Mine does the same and I always feel so blessed when he waits for me or follows along and carries my goodies.
    The little one is a doll baby. My oh My so adorable.
    Have a great week. Blessings xo

    1. Thanks Pam. I was raised up in hunting and we used to carry our girls hunting with us when young. Then I backed off a little from hunting as they got older and I needed to be with them for different things. But...when they all got grown and out on their own it was my time again to be with Marty and hunt when I could. We sure enjoy this hobby together. Speaking of that granddaughter, I plan to get lots of sugar off of her today!

  20. Now I'd have to pass on the hunting but hanging out in the woods is a winner for sure. You and your husband do that together? That's so neat!

  24. Cindy, you cute little huntress you! :) I don't hunt, but love being in the outdoors. A few years ago we walked some of the camino in Spain. Afterwards we showed photos to some of our relatives. My bil asked, "who is that boy/" ha, ha, it was me in my raincoat. Yup, we're just little tomboys. lol! That baby is one cutie, all of that heir, oh my! I can see why you want to kiss her lips off! You found some fun things. I too often pick up things I know my friends will like. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,

    1. Jann that is so funny what Bill said. My girls tell me the same thing when decked out in camo and especially since my hair is short. But I love it!
