I thought I'd share a few treasures that I found recently at Goodwill and a local garage sale.

Usually I don't find much at Goodwill, but a few weeks ago I scored big! My mom comes this Wednesday so I'm preparing for our craft-aganza. We will be turning the cork board into something for my parents' newly renovated kitchen. The pineapple thing will be painted for their living room. The little stars are perfect for their rustic living room.

Oh the possibilities!

And I picked up a few crafting supplies at a garage sale. Pretty fabric, ribbon, and lace and some great necklaces. I am going to add fabric flowers and ribbon to the two pearl necklaces and mod-podge the wooden necklace. Can't wait!


Speaking of treasures, I won the 300th post giveaway at the Hometown Girl! I won a beautiful apron, enamel flower pin, and some amazing postcards of Susan's photography. You, of course, should be jealous.

It all came beautifully wrapped in a sewing pattern. How creative!!

Jupiter loved it, too.

Thanks Susan!



  1. Ooohh!! I can't wait to see the necklaces!

  2. Hey Laura, thanks for stopping by my blog..I'm glad you liked my trash to treasure lampshade. My hubby probably thought I was nuts at the time, but now he likes the lampshade. :) I'm a dumpster diver at heart! LOL
