More Goodwill Goodies 4 Me :)

Thursdays are typically my Grocery shopping day, and I almost always go to the nearby town of Fremont, MI to shop at the Walmart there. They also have a Goodwill store, and you can bet that I always make time to stop there to see what they have for me! Today I found 3 sweet items to bring back home with me, yeah!

First up is this bag of pink (HELLO!) rosebuds...there are 12 bunches with 12 rosebuds to each bunch :) Lots of stuff I can create using these beauties, and for just $2, oh yeah!



There was also this other bag with white rosebuds. There are 10 bunches with 12 rosebuds to each bunch.. Yippee!! These too were $2.



And lastly is this sweet white Ironstone pitcher/creamer, and it has the sweetest swirl pattern to it. It was only 80 cents!! I'm thinking I want to start collecting more of this white Ironstone! I love how it looks in my home. I wonder why I never thought of collecting it before? I've seen it displayed in homes in lots of the magazines I like to read....ah, go figure, lol :)



If there is a local Goodwill or Thrift store near you, I HIGHLY recommend you go and check out what treasures are awaiting there for you! You never know what you might find...that's half the fun of it :)

Have a great day everyone!!

Warmest Hugs, Brenda

Hi Brenda,
I would say the stars aligned and it was pure karma that those beautiful roses were waiting for you. Perfect! Just your style and imagine the beautiful things that you can make.
I love the white pitcher too. I have some ironstone and white pieces and I'm loving it more too.

hugs

What a gorgeous pitcher!

And I SO echo your thoughts on thrift stores. It wasn't too many years ago that I wouldn't have been caught dead in one (too proud!), but I've since discovered that they hold an amazing collection of lovely things (including a red wool, hip length coat for $3!!!). It really is true...one man's trash is another man's treasure.

Blessings,
Patti

Hello Brenda- I love Goodwill, you never know what you will find. All of my regular dishes are white. There is something about white dishes that just makes every meal look like a work of art. Take care.
