Thank you for the great feedback about the new Goodwill feature! I had a few leave comments here, but several email. I appreciate the feedback. Here's another visit...
These photos were taken from one trip to Goodwill. With this visit, I ran in quickly to find a vase for a floral arrangement ($0.50!) And snapped a couple photos while there. Here's what I found...
This is a sheet. I always look through the sheets. Why? Because sometimes you find some great pattern inspiration there. I love this butterfly pattern. Great for a shower or children's room decor.
You really could cut this sheet up, starch and iron a few small squares and place into gallery frames to use as decor. Or, as usual, it would make a cute backdrop.
If you've been following my blog since last year, you remember I put together a Grinch themed Christmas. (Here is a post featuring last year's preparations including the Grinch tree skirt.)
This year, I'm preparing for a candy cane Christmas. My son loves candy canes so most of the downstairs will be done in this theme. I plan early. Mostly because I create a lot of handmade items for every theme and it takes time to get them all finished.
On this Goodwill trip, I saw this red platter. It's definitely not in the best condition. But hey, it's $0.49!
But... with a new coat of red spray paint and either some white paint or white cricut decals, it may end up looking like a large piece of candy like the one below. Perfect to sit on an easel! Stay tuned for my Christmas preparations!
Something else I ran across was this cute wagon. A perfect centerpiece for a Farm Birthday Party!
I immediately thought I'd grow some wheat grass to cover the inside bottom and create a great centerpiece. Sidenote: look at that cute football player to the right! Hello, football tailgate party! Hand paint the uniform to your school colors and use this guy on top of a cupcake stand.
It would be great place to display some nice colored fortune cookies. Like these strawberry red. Gives a nice splash of color.
