Awesome finds!

I have been having such amazing luck with my Good will and antique store finds, that I just had to post some pictures!

Look at this fantastic bowl from Portugal for $3.99. I found it at the Good Will!

I thought it made a good fruit bowl!

This picture was from an antique mall for $7.00. Just loved it!

Not sure if you can see but it is dated and signed 1939!

Birdcage that I'm thinking about spray painting black for $10.00

Now this is goofy and totally freaked both my kids out! It says Evita at the bottom but when I saw it at the Good Will for $10.00 I thought it reminded me of someone I knew!

No idea what I am going to do with this. My husband says I should save it for halloween and put some fake blood coming out of her mouth! Ummm, no thanks!

This is my mother's college graduation picture!

Now do you see the similarities? Kind of freaky!

Lamp for $15.00! I got it at an antique mall shop but I believe it was once at Target. Love the number on it!

Now this little guy was on clearance at target for $6.00 and he just made me laugh!

Don't you think it makes a great dog treat bowl?

This pic was $5.00!

My gal needed a crown and this was a steal at $3.00

Queen B for the Queen! I just liked the colors, but forgot the price!

I was thinking of doing a collage of pictures above this buffet, any thoughts?

There are many more treasures that I have found but I'll save those for another day!

Have a great one!

Hi! Thanks for the sweet comment! There really is a resemblance between your mom and that photo, yet I can also see how it freaked your kids out,lol! And my grandmother had that other pic you picked up for $3.00 of the child.
I am off to check out your older posts!
XO, Kerri

I'm going to have to start shopping with you. Is that an original painting or a print?

Rachel said...

I love Goodwill. I feel like if you look around at a bunch of thrift stores, you get to know which ones have treasures and which ones have crap. Congrats on the treasure!

Megan great finds ! Does it take a lot of scouring to find them or are they plenty in your area ? What a great mix too. I think you should put the picture up of the one that resembles your mum & make up a exotic story of distant lands to tell visitors about (just for fun).

Just found your blog through Be Colorful. Aren't antique malls the best? I could (and do!) literally spend hours in one in my area. I don't think I've ever left empty handed.

That dog treat bowl is so cute! I saw that at Target and was wondering why it would be a cookie jar being open like that but treats is a good idea!

I am following you on GFC now. :)
