My Aunt Jill is an angel. No really. She could be the patron saint of animals -- particularily shelter animals. The first thing Aunt Jill does when she visits our house is to hand out hugs to the children and then ask "How are the chickens?" It is rare to find her without hay bales or bags feed for our animals, animals at the shelter or animals at the farm where she helps out. She rarely comes to our home empty handed. Typically, she brings along a cage for new chicks, a feeder for the elders or some watermelon scraps for a chicken treat. She simply loves animals and we love her.
I have always admired Aunt Jill's love of the animals and it is no suprise that it is Aunt Jill that introduced me to the Humane Society of Lebanon Thrift Shop .
If you have been reading this blog for any amount of time, you will know that thrift stores are one of my "happy places". When I am feeling stressed a good hour or two in a thrift store will solve all the world's ills. So it is no surpise today that I am bringing you a post inspired by the gloriful, humble thrift store.
A group of creative and inspiring bloggers are getting together for our first annual Hometalk Thrift Benefit for Sheltered Animals Blog Tour. That's a mouthful! Let's break it down.
Hometalk: A home and garden website that brings together professionals, bloggers and anyone interested in all things home. It's like Pinterest without the hair and nails. Plus, it's free!
Thrift Benefit: Did you know many communities across the country have thrift shops that sponsor your local Humane Society or animal shelter?
Shelter Animals: There are so many animals in need. Shelters do so much with so little.
Blog Tour: The group of creative animal loving bloggers listed below sharing our animal related posts in a blog tour.
Hometalk Thrift Benefit for Sheltered Animals Blog Tour starts Monday, October 14 and goes through Friday the 18. Here's a chance to meet new bloggers and many of their animal family members, get creative ideas from thrift shop finds, or read about the wonderful animals that share our journey.
