thrifting

Latest bargains at my favorite thrift store - Goodwill!

These pretty plates are made in England - and I paid just 99 cents each.


 A couple of pairs of barely-worn shoes...



Love this little white stool ($4.99!). Don't know if I'm going to leave it outside or use it indoors when I "play house" and change things around.


 I love the daisies on this unique little oil painting...



It fits in perfectly with the display on a lower wall...


I love me a purdy scarf...and this purple one was only $2.49!


I bought two of these TALL green, glass candlesticks. I thought I would use them on the ends of my console table, but after purchasing candles to put on them, and then placing them on the console table...well, I'm rethinking that choice. I have to play around with them and see where they'd look best. They're about 15" tall, so they might even look good on the floor, in front of the fireplace.


I'm going to hang this wine painting downstairs in the family room/bar area. Found the artist (Tanya M. Fischer) on art.com...her matted and framed pictures like this one cost anywhere from $80 - $150! I paid $3.99.


I also bought a pair of blue cotton pants, a pair of dressy capris, a Coldwater Creek blouse, and a Chico's blue spring cardigan. All those pieces were only $3.99 each! I'm sure someone originally paid at least $50 each for the blouse and cardigan. I love resale shops!

  5. We have a Goodwill right here in town, and do you know I've never set foot inside? I often buy inexpensive but pretty plates like yours, then break them up to make mosaics. Try it, it's easy! I know chickadees are common, but for some reason they had not yet found my feeder. My new bird food lasts longer than the safflower seed, but draws more unique birds.
