~Soul Searchin Sunday~

I came across a couple of quotes I would love to share with all of you today.  Really makes a person think.  Well it did for me.  Hope you all are having a Blessed Sunday!

As you’re reading this, your life’s getting shorter. Ticking away. I’m not saying this to frighten you. Though it may. I’m saying this to awaken you. To inspire you. To share your unique gifts. To motivate and to love - yourself and others. To paint. To write. To teach. To innovate. To sing. To dance. To care. To feel. To listen. To learn. To laugh. The world needs you. Make your move!" ~ M. Litman

"Learn to look within yourself for appreciation and acceptance and give yourself permission to seek a better and more fulfilling life every day. It is not in how others treat you that can make a difference in your life, but it is in how you treat yourself." ~ Unknown

"It is not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life, it is what you whisper to yourself that has the most power." - Robert T. Kiyosaki

~Treasure Hunting~

~Afternoon to you all~
It was such a beautiful day, sun was shining, it had rained last night, so the flower beds and garden were taken care of for the day.  So I decided to go treasure hunting.  I have so much fun looking around at everything.  I usually go around the stores atleast a couple times, I always seem to miss something, I didn't see before.  You ever do that?    The above pic is some of my great finds. 

You ever find something you are not sure of what it is, BUT you just have to have it.  LOL  I found one of those items this morning.  I am not sure if this should have something else with it? or it is used in something?  I am not sure what it is :(  SO.......I was wondering maybe get you, my friends to help me out.  Above is three pictures I took of it.  Look forward to finding out what this is.
