2nd Time Around Tuesday


When I was at home in Washington over the Memorial Weekend I made sure to visit some of my favorite thrift stores. I found The Story of Mary Jones and Her Bible at Hidden Treasures Thrift store in Kenmore. It’s a 1932 publication from London. If you’ve never read this sweet story I highly recommend it.  This is the story of a Welsh girl from the late 1700’s whose great desire to own a Bible helped to form the British and Foreign Bible Society, an organization that has published over 4 million Bibles in 291 languages.

The sweet Welcome and Laugh Often message pillows were from Goodwill in Lynwood.

To see more 2nd Time Around treasures visit Diane our hostess at A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Good morning Ellen B.,

    I’ve never heard the story of Mary Jones before, but it sounds inspiring! I love how the Lord can take one little desire and use it to move mountains.

    I hope you have a great Tuesday and no, I can’t believe it’s already June. We’ve been socked in with the gloom and I just love it!

  2. Oh, what a fine book you came across! I have lots of newer books, but now feel the need to hunt down old ones like this. Seems everyone now is starting to want to thrift and give old things new life, instead of buying new. Going green, using what we have, saving the environment. Whatever you want to call it. I think it is a wonderful idea.

  3. I read that story a long time ago – my friend Rinda’s hubby is head of the Bible Society for the island and he had a copy. A beautiful story and what a lovely old copy. Love your pillows too!

  4. I will keep an eye out for this old book; books are what passes for insulation here at our old house – they line the walls and keep the heat in during winter!

    My daughters always judged the quality of a family vacation by how many used book stores we visited, and what they found.

    Lovely post, thanks!

  5. I adore old books, Ellen, and I would like to read that one on your recommendation. And the pillows are darling. Great finds!

    Happy Second Time Tuesday!


    Sheila 🙂
