Today's Goodwill Finds...

While Josh went to Lowe's to have keys made for rental numero quatro, and since I had been a good girl and gone to Kmart this morning to take advantage of the Double Coupon Days, I felt I had earned a run through Spring Hill's Goodwill Super Center. I made a couple of scores, I'm excited about 'em, and thought I'd share the details with you:

The green metal box

The lid opens, and then the flap in the front also opens...




It's some sort of organizer...




Logan De Luxe Movie Reel Chest


I think it will hold my coupons for my new venture into CVS-ing. It cost me a whopping $1.06.

Next up we have a combo of two of my favorite things...well, three actually: copper, patina, and pineapples:

Note smudge of patina ^




2 buckaroos




I've already got the perfect spot for it picked out on my kitchen wall.

Next up comes a beautiful dish which just so happens to have a shade of green in it very similar to the Tate Olive accents in our Kitchen/Family room. This plate does a good job of pulling all the colors in the room together:



It will reside amongst the chickens above the cabs...




It cost .76...he hee...


My home (as seen in my header pic) has a bit of an Asian feel...especially in context of all the curvy, arched Meditteranean homes that surround it...so we've incorporated that in our exterior decor. Actually a little inside as well come to think of it. I had to have this heavy pagoda styled candle holder:

so heavyyyy....




This was the one I kept almost putting back. Why? Because it was the priciest item. $4.06. Then I remembered all the incredibly decorated homes and outdoor spaces I see daily here on blogland, and on RMS, etc., and decided to go for it. I've got to start somewhere right? I'm naughty.

Last, but certainly not least, is this beautiful item:

Vase in soft aqua color...



Made in Portugal...

I spotted a glimpse of my current color obsession and had to investigate. Upon nearing end cap I saw this beautiful vase filled with faux daisies. I lifted it up, checked to see if was for sale, saw the tag...$1.06...and it was made in Portugal. I told it in portuguese that it was coming home with me. I left the daisies behind so they could plop'm in another vase to make the end cap look pretty again.

How'd I do? :)

You did great, Natalie! And of course, I love that aqua vase too...I'm chomping at the bit to really get started in my bedroom makeover now. I've just about got it all collected.

Love all your finds. Looking is so much fun.

Nothin' like a good bargain.

I was reading your side bar and I saw what you worte about supporting Georgia. And I was thinking, "Yeah! It's about time someone stood up for this stupid sate! We've been out of gas and water and intelligence and..." Then I realized you meant Georgia. The country. Not, you know, Georgia.

LOL. I am in total support of your state as well. It's a nice state right? Peaches? The latest batch of Housewives, too? Other southerny stuff......We got hit a little w/ the fuel situation (blogged about it) but nothing like you guys. The drought thing just freaks me out. I even find myself saying WTF? as I watch storm systems travel across the map and then scoot right above or below Georgia. Craziness. Thanks for stoppin' by!
