Goodwill, gotta love it!

Look what I found at Goodwill today....


I was so excited when I spotted these, I practically ran to the next aisle. I turned them over and found out they were from Japan and at $1.00 a piece, I just couldn't pass them up. Won't they be perfect for Irish coffee or maybe coffee with Baileys? Yum!



Then I decided to check out the picture aisle and found these beauties for $2.00 a piece. Hmmm, not sure what I'm doing with this bird theme but I know I can always give them to my sister. She has a whole bird thing going on in her house. I was thinking I might paint them black so it looks like real bamboo and maybe rough them up a little.

I sure hope everyone has had a great Friday and remember......

The bird pictures would look great with a flax-looking mat too. Something that looks natural and adds texture. What awesome deals!

I've been reading a couple of blogs that just recently showed their second hand finds. I'm catching the bug. I know I will making a visit to Value village soon.

Just catching up in Blogland today. Lots of great things to see over here!!! Love the wonderful bird finds and your laundry room is completely wonderful. Looooove the mural by your friend, the junk cubbies, the cake stand and gift boxes above and that great art wall for the kiddos.
And then there was your adorable little niece. I love posts with "sweet pea" photos in them!!!
And last...I loved the photos of the "bills" mailbox and the "swimming with wires". Ha!

I might have had to outrun you for those mugs, those are adorable, love the colors. To answer your question, I find ALL my lamps at Homegoods. They have the best lamp selection of anywhere and the prices are great! All of my lamps I paid either $30 or $40 with the shades.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

Kate said...

Yes you make a huge difference in my life and I am so very grateful. Ok so here's a laugh while I was snapping the pics I told them to put the arms around each other's shoulders like buddies. Then after your 2nd comment I had to go back and look at the photo. What a hoot, see you are so good for my soul and my eyesight as well.

Hugs
Kate
