Happy Blue Monday!  I am still trying to recover from all the Thanksgiving festivities!

We went to the Goodwill on Friday to help stimulate the economy ūüôā and I bought this pretty blue urn…

Hangin’ at the Goodwill   6 comments


My sister Ellen and I and my nieces РLaura and Michelle had a great time at the Goodwill today!  We hunted for buried treasure and were quite successful.  These are just a few of my finds!  It was a linen day for me.  Lots of napkins and place mats.  I also found two sugar dishes made in England, a fun black and white apron, some charger plates and those cute little dotted cups.  

We were then treated to a wonderful build your own BBQ hamburger lunch hosted by my nephews Josh and Dan.  Katie joined us for lunch.  All in all a wonderful day was had by all.   I was reminded again the joy of fellowship with family!  I love you all.

Fabulous Goodwill Finds!   8 comments

Went to the Goodwill on Saturday with my sister (a tradition that I wish could happen more often!).  We found some great finds.  I ordinarily do not have good luck in the book department, but this time I found 11 books!  YIKES! I am looking forward to a summer of reading I guess!

The place I like to hang out at when I go to the Goodwill is in the housewares department. I weed through all the dishes to find the hidden treasures.  I was not disappointed this time around! I found this delightful English teapot that I just adore!  I love the shape and the color! My sister found the pretty little teacup and was going to decide against it but I decided to go ahead and get it Рat $2.99 I could not resist.

The deep rose colored dishes are also made in England and have different cottage scenes depicted on them. I thought the deviled egg dish was pretty and since I don’t own one I thought it was high time I purchased one!

The tin basket was just too cute to resist and I think it would look good with some plants or for ice at a garden party!  think I did pretty good!  All in all a fabulous day at the Goodwill!

WFMW-On-Line Shopping Edition   2 comments


This Wednesday is another themed edition of Works-For-Me Wednesday and this is what Shannon wants from us:

“This time, let’s all share our favorite on-line stores (oh, the marketing people are going to love this!) What are your favorite on-line shopping sources? Where do you go for on-line bargains? Or for on-line window shopping? I can’t wait to see!”

Levenger is my all time favorite.  My wish list at this place is miles long!  I own the Circa products.  You can remove and then reinsert pages in the notebook!  Love it.

I love this store.
