For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it,and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God...Hebrews 6:7

In this self portrait shot
Is a dress I bought
At a Second Hand Shop.
The sale lasted one day,
And it surely did pay!
I felt more than blessed
To be nicely dressed
Thrifty and wise,
In clothes my size.
It made good sense
To economize
For the low price
Of 99 cents...
Poetry by me AJP

It rained all morning but I had a chance to do this self portrait after a little break in the weather. A few days ago I found a good bargain at a thrift shop that opened up in town earlier this year...all the clothes in this store had a price tag of 99 cents, but this was just for one day! I was very happy to find this stylish black dress and took a chance that it would fit at a size 10 and it did:) This is one way that I save money on the economy.
