What I am Thankful for...

Yesterday I stopped by a vintage store on a very busy street.  While attempting to park quickly, I swiped the side of a parked car.  I was sooo bummed.  After asking around inside the store, I found the owner.  He came outside and looked at the car, after mulling over it for a minute he said "you know what, don't worry about it, Happy Holidays" and gave me a hug.  And I was able to wipe of the mark on my car with the sleeve of my sweater.  That brings me to the first thing that I am thankful for: good things that happen when you don't expect them and kind people in the world.

Other things I'm thankful for:

1. My handsome husband and beautiful daughter, without whom my life would be incomplete.
2. My friends and extended family who keep me sane and let me ramble on about things.
3. Salvage Life-my experiment, my dream, my creative outlet, my baby.
4. The people I've met through Salvage Life, through this blog, on Twitter. The internet allows you to connect with the neatest that I would never have had the opportunity to meet if I had lived during the time the clothes I sell were made. 

I could probably go on and on because I am so blessed.
Happy Thanksgiving!
I made a little Thanksgiving Day collage below from some of my favorite items in the SHOP.

Be sure to tune in for the Taylor Swift Special on NBC tonight at 8/7c, she'll be wearing some Salvage Life jewelry!

It's so nice to find out there are still kind people in the world and honest people (you, who could have driven off, but I know you wouldn't). Just made me think of my co-worker where I volunteer. She had a scratch from the front of her car to the back, like someone keyed it. SO disgusting. I'm glad it all turned out so well for you, Beth. Happy Thanksgiving yesterday. Did your family get together?
