Goodwill finds...

http://www.hernandoluxuryhomes.com/ HernandoLuxuryHomes = Spring Hill Real Estate




We recently were blessed with a gorgeous big new Goodwill Super Store here in Spring Hill, FL. Lucky me! I thought I'd share my two favorite finds:

Adorable little salt shaker...I love the shape of this...Price? .79


4 salad plates in the prettiest pale blue...Price? .79 each



This place is huge, and it's so much fun to treasure hunt. I made out like a bandit that day, and these two are only an example of what I found. I was actually looking for a salt shaker. Josh will occasionally add salt, and rather than break out my big containers, I thought a shaker of his own would make sense. It's weird that I don't own salt & pepper shakers, right? Well, when I saw this little egg shaped beauty in great condition I knew it fit the bill. For less than a buck. Hoorah.


I love those blue plates so much. I'm almost tempted to change the color palette of my family room in order to display them. However, Snew picked out the Tate Olive and I still absolutely love it and am not quite ready to change it. I've got some pale blue accents in the master suite, and having seen dishes displayed in some beautifully decorated bedrooms, I'm tempted to display them in there. In plate hangers on either side of the mirror for example. Hmmmm.....

79 cents?! No way! What great finds. I mean, they were practically giving them away! -Julia
