I've been quite the neglectful blogger haven't I? Though I've tried to keep up with my blog reading, I just have found myself with no time on my hands to write a little post, or there were some days where nothing came to mind, and I can't stand those, I mean, I should have something, anything to blog about right?
I've spent the past few days dealing with:
Kids who got sunburned last weekend
Kids last day of school
And so forth and so on. It may not seem like a lot but for some reason, it tended to take over my days and by the time I slowed down to take a breath it was time to hit the sack.
Today, I've managed to slow down.
Took things slow and did not much at all, other than an afternoon trip to my local Goodwill.
Oh Goodwill, I love you so!
Here's a few of my finds, I didn't take pictures of everything because it's late and I'm tired and if I don't get into bed within 30 minutes I will turn into a pumpkin.
I found some more rolling pins for my collection
I love this little potpourri jar with the fairy lights inside
These Buffet Genius Trays are perfect for the summer.
Don't know yet what I'm going to do with these, but since I love Americana decor, I couldn't leave them behind.
Nothing on my stove top cover is new, but I kind of switched things around a bit and just wanted to show you. You have no idea how many people have seen it and commented on how much they love this idea.
Love this primitive electric candle, I was lucky to find it for 99c.
Got another great jar for my bathroom, it now holds all the cotton balls.
Added some taper candles to my bathroom counter shelf.
I found this lamp and just had to bring it home. It's red, white and blue and has the United States symbol. It's just perfect for Curt's Military Display cases.
Here's a closer look.
Also found this cute Flag and Eagle which also went on the display clases
This one I actually bought for Curt for his birthday yesterday. I love it and I think it's a great gift for a Military Soldier.
This shelf is in my living room and I got the two Prim candles and little metal rake, for $1.
I also found this cute sign today and it now hangs above the shelf.
I almost passed this picture today but caught it out of the corner of my eye. I love it. It sits above my computer armoire.
Who can say no to old flags? I mean, I just love them, I think they have so much character and are beautiful in a metal vase. You can't really see it but I'll try to take better picture.
I also found that bigger metal tub to the right and that one is heading outside to my front yard. It will also be filled with flags.
Remember the postcards from the Postcard Exchange? I was going to put them in a frame but then realized that this little area of the wall needed something.
I strung some white ribbon through the postcards and now they all hang there, you can just walk by and flip through them. I love it and so do my kids, they love going through the postcards.
And lastly, this wooden basket sits on my kitchen counter. It's filled with crochet goodies and some pip berries.
So there you go, just a few more of my Goodwill finds that have found a cozy corner in my home.
Next time you drive by one, make sure to drop in and see what treasures you can round up.
