Those who know me are quite familiar with the fact that I love to shop at second-hand clothing stores. For over a year I had been looking for an aqua-blue sweater to go with a skirt someone had purchased for me. I had just been wearing the skirt with a black top and aqua jewellery, but having aqua in the plaid, it really needed more of an aqua accent than the jewellery could provide. I just didn't want to pay $40-60 for a sweater!
Well, I made several trips to Valu-Village and one day the Lord had a perfect aqua sweater for me... perfect, except that all but two buttons were missing! I asked for a discount and got the sweater for around $3. Next stop: Fabricland! I selected the buttons I wanted (silver vintage, to coordinate with the buttons on the skirt), sewed them on at home while watching the news, and voila! I had a new outfit for under $10!
I'm so thankful God cares about the little things, aren't you?!
