Angels Among Us - Thrifty Life Thursday #25 and Features from TLT #24

Angels are among us...and not just the tiny little garage sale ones I find and paint to look even more vintage... 

Funny how things seem to come in batches...

I wonder if they are little blessings sent to us, 

or if we just "notice" certain things at certain times?

Maybe it is a little of both. 

This week's party was small, but sometimes good things come in small packages! I began clicking on the thumbnails, and BOOM! Gotta feature that one...BOOM! Oh yeah. This one is so cool...wait, better slow down, there are still some intriguing photos...

Choosing is the hardest part, but looking through your offerings is also the most wonderful part! You people always amaze and delight my sensibilities.

Just as my sweet friend Cathy said when we first hung out as 15 year-olds..."Thank you for coming. I had a nice time."

It was then that I knew we'd be friends...and we are still friends, though we live far apart. 

So, thank you all for coming. It was awesome again!

Without further are features from TLT # 24:
(drum roll, please...)

Penny from Penny's Vintage Home shared a shed-to-tea room redo that looks like something you could see at a theme park! It is so full of charm and nostalgia...and I love the benches from headboards.

Joy from A Vintage Green shared a stool revision using a variety of colors and brands of chalk and clay paints. She achieved a lovely antique finish!

Donna from Deanie's Stash found a big pile of cool vintage goodness that will make you a tad least it did me! It's one of those posts that makes you want to jump up and run to the nearest garage sale or thrift store...

      Well Revi ... you certainly have a talent for aging things. Those little Angel figures really look old now. Love the look.
      Great features this week ... can't wait to see what everybody has been up to this week. Thanks for hosting such a fun and friendly party. Hope to join you soon.

      Love what you did with the angels! Made me think of the verse from Hebrews: "Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it." Lovely features all around! Thanks for hosting! Hugs,
