A little Goodwill & Thrift Store finds

Well, here we are to another start of a new week :) Later today my oldest son and I are heading outside to work on finishing up with the mulch I've been puttin' off doing. But the first thing I did today was take a couple of packages to drop off at the Post office, then I headed off to my local Goodwill store. Really didn't find much that called out to me, but I did happen to see this cute Apothecary Jar you see below. Not quite sure yet what I will place inside of it. But you can be sure it will definitely be something pink :)



My next stop was to a nearby Thrift/resale store, and I found these 2 cute packets of Blank notecards. My favorite is the one with the cute little sleeping kitty :) I'll be using these as Thank you cards for all you sweet ladies who purchase my pretty pillows and such.




This last photo is a darling little hanging pillow that I will be listing on Ebay sometime later this afternoon or evening (depending on when I get that darn mulch done,lol) I really love the soft green color of this fabric.



Update: The mulch is all done, YEAH!! and the pillow is now listed on Ebay...you can click on the link in my sidebar to take you to my listings :)

Oh, I will be participating for the first time for Teacup Tuesday, so watch for that post. I'll be showcasing the teacup you see next to the pillow :)
