Haha, can you tell I have been working a lot? Now that the kids are back in school, I don’t shoot senior pictures in the mornings or midday anymore, so I hope I can get back into a most-days blogging groove again! Today is attempt numero uno.
Some recent Goodwill finds…
I love collecting random juice glasses at goodwill. They’re like $0.49, and I think it’s fun to have a variety.
Also, I buy any silverware with the dot borders, that way mine all look like they match but I can spend $0.25 each, and not have to drop $30 on a set all at once. Since I started doing this I don’t run out of silverware anymore!
Also, I’ve had a few decent finds at the jewelry counter lately. This time I got three bangle bracelets for $1.99, a yellow necklace for $3.99 and two wooden-bead blue and green necklaces for $4.99. Not as cheap as I hoped it would be, but still cheaper than retail. Oh, and the wooden ones – a best friend had them. I put them in a cute dish when we organized her bathroom once. She had them at our co-garage sale. I didn’t see them. She donated them to G-will. I bought them. She said, “Hey I like your necklaces, did I give you those??” I said, “I got them at Goodwill, but I thought they looked like yours!” There were originally three, but she kept one of them, so they must be hers! True story. Crazy!!!
Back to the finds… I like to look for bread pans and small baking trays; they’re good for food prep and organizing!
The weird test tube thingy was a shot in the dark at making a cute vase with my mattress spring from Farm Chicks…
It was a fail. It was a good try though, right? So close and yet… not close enough. Maybe I will label it as a “wonky vase” and try to sell it. ;)
I found a cute yellow vintage Pyrex dish (it was just sweet), and a stack of sweet little plates, straight from 1989. Remember the pin cushion I made out of a bowl just like them here? Yeah, had a project idea, went back for more, and these plates were the last of them, sadly. I got them all. And also one last candle stick I needed for the same project…
I made a couple sweet mini cake stands for my sale. What do you think? I am having trouble physically moving them to the sale pile, but I must. Right now they are displaying two recent creations… this post is getting too long and I should actually get out of my pjs sometime today, so I will share my creations with you tomorrow!
