Day of Bounty

Our church did a really cool thing this week called the Day of Bounty. Everyone brought stuff they no longer wanted ( had to be in good condition and working) to the church. On Sunday after church we had a no cost yard sale for the church family. It was so much fun!

Here is what I got:

A 1972 singer sewing machine and cabinet. Now my youngest dd has her own sewing machine!

Complete Set ( only used once) China Pearl Noel pattern Christmas Dishes!!!!! I have always wanted a set of Christmas Dishes. This set is beautiful! When no one took it by the end of the day I just knew it was mine! Go here to see the pattern.


A 4 cup pyrex measuring cup!

A paninni maker. We have always wanted one. We had cheese sandwiches last night. It did a fabulous job!!!!

Several dish towels. I can always use them.

2 picture frames.

2 lamps and one lamp shade. One is a piano lamp. Our old one broke a few years ago. Its nice to have one again!

1 Body Works lotion ( new) DD 1 favorite.

Craft Stamps.

1 bottle of alcohol ( for crafting!)

lots of clothes

a bike

a basket

And an entertainment center! But not the one that was at the Day of Bounty. There was one there so all who wanted it put their name in for a drawing. We did not get it ( a family who really needed it did!) A friend told us they were getting rid of theirs and that we could have it. It is huge! All the tv and music stuff will fit nicely in it.

All the left over stuff goes to our clothes closet to continue to bless folks in need through out the year.


  1. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing it. I'll have to noodle it around a bit and see how to make it work at our church.


  2. Tina, I LOVE it! I often bring a box to church with something in it to give away, but what fun to have everyone do so! Hmmm...now you've got me planning!

    God Bless,

  3. The dishes are beautiful! What a neat idea. I'm so glad you were blessed.

    Pray especially for us tomorrow. We think we might have found a vehicle (1997 Ford Expedition) in our price range. Also, we put an ad on Craig's list and had three callers in the first hour. One man is sure he wants it - he will meet us on our way to go see the other vehicle. If it sells we can get new tires on the Expedition... It seems like a God thing... Please pray that we have confirmation and peace if this is right.

    So fall is around the corner there too? The days are chilly here...


  4. What a BIG blessing that would have been for all !!! I would love to organize one of those ! [0= I will have to talk to our new pastor. [0=

    Sending you HUGE (((HUGS)))

    Thank you for all your words of encouragemnt and prayers.
