LOOT FROM THE SALVOS

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.

Today was my fortnightly trip to The Salvo's (Salvation Army store.) I took a couple of bags of old T-shirts and books, and of course came away with a few finds.

I bought these jars for $3 each.


I bought them for my bathroom. I have some similar jars of a different size with shells in them and I plan to fill the new jars with shells too. For the moment They can sit on the windowsill empty.

I also purchased a glass dish for $3 which will go with a larger one of a similar style that I already own.

I also bought a book which looks interesting.



I spotted this book by Brian Houston, pastor of  Hillsong Church. I often listen to him on TV early Sunday mornings and really like what he has to say. I didn't even open the book before I bought it, but I am looking forward to reading it.

His son Joel Houston writes a lot of the songs that we sing in church.

Of course buying this book will necessitate donating 2 books back to the Salvo's. I am not sure which ones they will be yet.
