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

I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails.
I will believe the Hand which never fails,
From seeming evil, worketh good for me.
And though I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered:
I trust in Thee.
--Ann Kimmel

Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines, the labor of the olive shall fail and the fields shall yield no meat, the flock shall be cut off from the fold and there shall be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:17-18

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!
