Some Goodwill & Thrift Store Treasures ~ 20% off EVERYTHING in my Etsy Shoppe

Hello everyone! I don't have a Tea post again this week...I've kinda shown you ladies all the cups that I have in my little collection :( But, I thought I would show you a couple of things that I found last week while out doing a little treasure hunting ~ these 3 items were purchased in our neighboring town's Goodwill store, and the consignment shop, The Corner Closet, in Newaygo Michigan. I had sooo wanted to go check them out yesterday (which happened to be my birthday), but it was waaaay to cold, and the roads were waaaaay to icy for me to venture out it! I have always hated having a December birthday, because, more often than not, there is usually some snow storm that hits around that time. My son was happy though, NO SCHOOL yesterday, lol :) Oh, and a little FYI for you ladies....I was born on FRIDAY the 13th! My mom said it was a good day cuz' I was born....my siblings have another opinion on that one, lol :) Also, my hubby was born on May 13th, also a friday, and on Mother's day too!

Until Christmas Eve, everything that is listed in my Etsy shoppe is now 20% off ~ perhaps you will find that gift for someone special, or who you haven't bought for yet :)

Below are photos of the 3 items that I wanted to show you all....



This birdcage isn't old, but I just love it, and found it at Goodwill....I want to paint it white, but right now it's still too cold outside to do any spray painting, and of course, I wouldn'd dream of doing it inside the home :0 ...



This is a very heavy candle holder...it was originally a medium brown in color, but I was able to paint this white...this was purchased at the consignment shop a couple of days prior to going to Goodwill...when the weather was much nicer and a bit warmer.....



this was purchased at the Goodwill store, and was already this nice creamy white, so no changes need to be made with it...I don't know yet what I might place inside of it; perhaps some pretty faux pink roses :)...



Well, that's about it for now....have you all got your Christmas shopping done? Me? NOPE! Hubby and I are planning to go out to dinner to celebrate my birthday this friday, then get the xmas shopping done afterwards...we have a family xmas party to go to this Saturday on hubbys side of the family.

Until next time bloggie friends!! :)

Dearest Brenda,

Happy belated Birthday to you!
Did you know that e.g. in Germany they sell silver charms with a 13 on, as it means LUCKY number. So it depends in which part of the world you view certain numbers as being lucky or unlucky.
For both of you it seems to have worked very well with double 13 and born on Mother's Day.

Keep things warm and rosy and enjoy your time together; have a great dinner on Friday!

Love,

Hi Brenda!
Happy belated birthday! I have 2 girls - both with December birthdays. It makes for a very busy month, but it's also a lot of fun:)
You're absolutely right - it's too cold to be outside spray painting. I have some frames I've been dying to paint, but burrrrrrr....they will just have to wait!
Have a great day!

Brenda, you have a way of finding the best treasures and then re-purposing them into something magical. I wish I could hunt with you.
I hope you had a wonderful birthday. Happy Birthday a day late, but the wishes are just the same, good ones coming your way!! Char
