I love a good deal, but I really like good quality better. You can get that when thrifting, but you may have to dig a little! It’s worth it, though.
Dress: Goodwill, $5.99
Shoes: Goodwill, $2.99
Earrings: Gift, free (Unless you count my seconds… those were $12)
Nylons: Given to me still-in-the-box, free
Total outfit cost, (not including studs 😉 ) : $8.98
Pretty good, no?
Sadly, I haven’t found one of those treasure troves in my area where there is many vintage items. I may have to branch out a little though; Goodwill is my main dig!
Thrifting tip: Only buy what you love. You found 3 things that fit, you like them all, but you just LOVE that purple number? Only get the purple. Otherwise, you’ll come home with things you’ll only use once. (I did this recently with a dress I thought I would alter to fit right; that didn’t work out… So it’s going to become a skirt soon!)

As we sang this song to close out our worship this morning, I teared up at the wonderful truth in these lyrics. Jesus did pay it all. I have always believed that; but His astounding grace to me, someone who absolutely does not deserve any sort of forgiveness or love from someone I once put to death, is simply amazing.
Jesus paid it all.
I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”
For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim;
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.
And now complete in Him,
My robe, His righteousness,
Close sheltered ’neath His side,
I am divinely blest.
Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow’r, and Thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone.
When from my dying bed
My ransomed soul shall rise,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
Shall rend the vaulted skies.
And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
I’ll lay my trophies down,
All down at Jesus’ feet.
For Jesus paid it all; all to Him I owe.
Sin had left a crimson stain;

A food blog, to be exact.
I felt like All Things Lovely was a little too haphazard,
a bit confusing,
My goal with my Lovely blog is to post more about fashion finds, diy projects, and, as the title suggests, all things lovely. Now please, don’t misunderstand me; I think food is one of the loveliest things there is. So lovely, that it deserves its own space.
That is how Thym et l’Origan was born.
If you are obsessed with recipes, I cordially invite you to follow my new blog. If you could care less, this space is now food-free, for your convenience. I will, to the best of my ability, be dividing my time equally between each blog.
With that, I am off to go thrifting! I will be posting any awesome finds soon! 🙂
