Goodwill and Ebay finds for me!

A couple of days ago, I once again stopped at my local Goodwill store, and found a couple of things to bring back home with me. I'm surprised they don't know me by name yet as I am there usually a couple times a week!

But first, I wanted to show you these gorgeous soft pink roses I purchased from a seller on ebay, and plan to use them in future pretties :)



My first treasure I found at GW was this beautiful Vintage rose hooked rug, for $4.99! Can you believe someone wanted to get rid of this beauty? OMG!!



My other sweet treasure was this lamp....the shade I will be giving a makeover at some time, but I was really interested in the base, as I knew it would be perfect for the lampshade I made over with a sweet pink girls frilly ruffled skirt. Click HERE for that post. It was silver in color (looked as though someone had painted it), but I knew it would look fab painted white. The cost for this lamp base & shade was $5.00.



And here it is all painted cottage white, with the pretty lampshade I had :) Isn't she gorgeous! I LOVE it!!



Here is a close-up of the base....I love the style and detail. Feel free to click on any image to enlarge them :)



Tomorrow is my grocery shopping day, and you can be sure I will be stopping at that towns local goodwill to see what treasures await me there :)

Yes, beautiful finds!! I'm envious...my last couple trips to the thrift stores haven't yielded much.

One man's junk (that amazing rug!) is definitely another man's treasure, huh?
