Goodwill Treasures for Me

Hello again everyone! I just got back home a few moments ago from doing the weekly grocery shopping, and of course, stopping at one of my local Goodwill stores. I found 3 wonderful items that were just begging for me to take them home with me, lol :) Below is a photo of those 3 fabulous items...



First up is this fabulous vintage mirror ~ the frame is made of a VERY heavy metal, and love the details on it. Even though it is already painted white, it does need to be spruced up, which I will do when more spring-like weather gets here in Michigan.


Below is a close-up of the details of the frame....this cost just $3.00!


Next up is this lampshade....love the shape of it, and am looking forward to giving it a make-over with some pretty fabric & trims...cost of the shade was also $3.00...


And lastly is this wonderful Vintage filigree picture frame...this will be painted white like the others frames I have in this style...what I love most about these filigree frames is that they remind me of pretty lace...the cost..$1.00


My youngest son, Austin, who will be 16 in May, is a very "happy camper" so to speak, as we were able to find a car that he loves and wanted to buy...it's a 1988 Camaro Convertible...the entire outside of the car has been redone and given a custom paint job (done in Iroc Blue); new convertible top; has a 350 engine with a 4-barrel holly carberator (it sounds sweet!!), new tires and sporty rims. This car is SMOKIN' hot! When the weather is nice I will take some pictures of it for you all to drool over, lol :) And since Austin doesn't have his license yet, that means I will be able to drive it too, WOO HOO!! I've been joking around with him, telling him I'm going to go Bah Hahing around with it....he's not liking that, lol :) Right now it's sitting in our Pole Barn, until the winter weather it done with.

Well ladies, time for me to get busy and get some house work done; got some laundry calling my name...oh how I wish it would just shut up, LOL :) So until next time :) Hope everyone has a terrific upcoming weekend!

Love your treasures! I'm headed to our Goodwill, among other thrift stores this afternoon, but ours is very overpriced so the hunt is a little harder than usual for a good deal. I need to post some pics of my recent finds...sounds like a new post is coming! Your mirror is my fav!!
Blessings,
Cindy

Hi Brenda, what great finds! I love the mirror and I agree with Bunny Rose Cottage, I would probably leave the chippy paint as is and just give it a good clean. I can NEVER EVER pass up a shade..lol! and the pretty frame is just so cute. Your son sounds like my son and hubby actually, there all into done up cars..oh well I suppose they have to have their passion too! thanks for entering my giveaway and posting my button on your sidebar. Good luck, take care, Maryann

Beautiful frame on that mirror and such a small price. Your son's car does sound smokin' hot.

Great finds but my hubby is drooling over that Camaro Convertible. He said to make sure you put pics up when you can. I think he's a car guy.
