Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse

Solved: A Sheer Trash Roadshow Mystery Triumph!

A quick update on a recent post:


Remember these magnets? I found them in the bottom of a mug full of pencils at an estate sale recently. They were obviously vintage and offbeat enough that I figured I could get maybe $5 for them. 

Well, last week I put out a call to my Epsteam (Etsy Pickers Sellers Team) buddies for help in identifying them. I knew I'd seen them before, but couldn't place them. Fortunately, a few folks had better memories than mine and they sent me some links. First a video:



Then a webpage:  http://www.mrbreakfast.com/cereal_detail.asp?id=140


And best of all...

A Freakies refrigerator magnet lot of 6 that just sold for over $56!!!!!!!!!

And to think I nearly put mine up for sale for a mere $5! Phew!!! Dodged a silver bullet there. Heigh ho, Silver, Away!
