Goodwill action

Yesterday I got to go out for a little "me" time. What ever did I decide to do? Massage? Shoe shopping? Pedi/Mani?

Nope. Just some good ol' Goodwill!

None of the GW's in our area are very good, or so I thought. Then I found the hidden heaven tucked away behind a car wash the other day. Yep, heaven. So much goodies, and to make it better? It's behind a Target, so all clearance items that don't sell? That's right- off to GW! :)

Here's one of the lovelies I purchased for 3 dollars. I don't know if that's a steal or a rip off but gosh she's pretty.

So I took these...

And, ugly turned into lovely! Easy peasy.
These I got a while back, and forgot to show them off. I love them, love love love. Now I just need some frames to go with them. Is it bad that I'm buying all this stuff for my dream house in my head? I had no intentions to put them in this bathroom. But golly, our next house master bath. Perfect ;)

I'm late but I'm joining the party anyways!

And the party over at Check out the cute finds!

Anybody else score big time (for little) this week?

Coming back to add, it's a sad sad day today. Poor ball jar #8 has perished. It couldn't escape the fast as lightning 1.5 year old. What remains of her on the bathroom floor will soon be buried in the trash. Let's all take a minute in remembrance.

I'd say the price of the canning jar is good. Some you can find for less, but some are sold for much more. It works well holding your Q-tips!

Better late than never. I love the frames. Don't we all have a dream house in our heads? I know I do, but for now...I love my little house.

I keep checking back on Rhoda's blog the whole week because it gives me that little kick of thrifting I need to keep me going :-)

I love that jar! And the q-tips look great in there! I really need to find something else to put my qtips in so I just might be "borrowing" your idea! ;)
And I LOOOOOOVVVEEEE those prints! I want some!

I got similar jars (one as small, one that is 1.5X that height), the same blue Ball jars... one for 2$, the other for 1$ at yard sales. So the 3$ sounds just about right for a store!
