Patience

Maybe it was really nothing more than I just happened to be in the right place at the right time, but I like to take a ‘little’ credit and call it the reward for being patient and diligent.

You know that feeling when you find EXACTLY what you were looking for, and you can hardly even believe that no one else snatched it up already?!?!?  Those times when you really want to shout “WOO!~HOO!!” out LOUD, and do a little happy dance?!?  Yea, THAT feeling.  I had one of those last week.

P1070447I found these at the thrift store.  The smaller one w/o a lid first, in the dishes aisle.  I almost passed it by because it didn’t have the lid.  But I thought it matched the one I already had at home and I could use this one as a utensil holder.

Then as I got in line to pay I saw the two bigger ones on a front aisle display and grabbed them,

P1070449Got home and sure enough, they WERE a match to the small one with a lid I already had!  Yesssssssssssssss!

P1070450And looky here!  The salt and pepper shaker I bought at an entirely different time matched too!

Now I have a nice matching kitchen canister set!  Just gotta keep an eye out for the fourth canister.

Patience.

  1. Something else weird–there are several different thrift stores here I go to regularly. Sometimes I’ll find one thing at one, and a mate to it at another. When it’s the Salvation Army, I can understand, but sometimes it’s a totally different kind of store.

  2. That, my dear, is TRULY amazingggggggggggg!!!
