Pasadena Swap Meet

My soul trusts in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge. —Psalm 57:1
       My soul longs to worship our Creator! Some days I wake with a real desire to be soo thankful, so loving to God, and this is one of those days! It's like I just want him to know just how much I love Him, and how thankful I am, to have my family, health, friends. 
Pasadena yesterday was amazing! If you've never been you have to go, every 2nd Sunday of the month they have it at the Rose Bowl, so fun! John and my sweet friend Peri and I all went. Peri is an interior designer, so who better to go with?? She's helps me with my home, it's a continues process, her guidance's is so appreciated, also her brutal honesty!!! If I'm getting off track she'll reel me back in! So right off the bat we spotted a Zebra rug!!! Something I've been wanting for a long time! So I ask how much?? The vendor says's $150, Shocked at the low price, I say will you take 75? We settle on 85!!! My plan was to rip it up and make pillows, but it is to beautiful! 

My finds,  Zebra rug, a paper machea drum that we are gonna make into a light fixture some cool African beads, and a cool belt
The Zebra Rug's new home!!!!

 Love these ceiling tiles

 The new home for the light fixture John is going to make
 What we came home to John and his posse!

 You see why you have to go someday?? So cool. I had dinner plans with two of my sweet friends/ clients, but rescheduled for tonight, so John and I just popped popcorn, put in a DVD ready to relax, when the door bell rings, oops they misread the text!! BUT God knows all things! They needed to talk so I made them dinner, we talked for hours, and I encouraged them that all things work together for good, to those who love Him!! Love those girls! Have an awesome day! Shirley Slee
