Our Goodwill sometimes has "new" items from Target, such as this large white wicker basket with pink lining...... The Simply Shabby Chic bedroll pillows, and the Shabby Chic fabric were from previous Goodwill ventures. The spray of pink roses was a recent find.

Vintage floral "House Blessing" plate......
Will probably be at home in our cottage kitchen.....

For some reason, I found this picture to be so enchanting ~ to where does this flower-strewn path and rose-covered arbor lead?


A little wooden box, an ivory frame with gold embellishments, and a sweet old child's jewelry box (70's perhaps?) that opens to reveal a little twirling ballerina, dancing to the tune of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".

Don't forget to sign up for my spring giveaway -- see March 1 entry for details!

Wow Becca..what delightful finds! I love finding treasures like that. I go to an old bookstore here with so much clutter you can barely get in the door, but it's heavenly. You never know what you'll find!
Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Lovely things. I have one of the vintage "House Blessing" plates! Our son brought it home to us about 35 years ago when he returned from a visit with some kin folk in Tennessee.

How pretty! I love that old picture too. A garden path is always hard to pass up.

Becca-
I adore that picture! I too looked at it and wondered what lies beyond. That is a real treasure and a really nice find!

Hi Becca,
I noticed you left a comment on my daughter's blog, and I came over here to see yours. I am soooo impressed by your pictures. You must be an artist because I know how hard it is to "stage" these things. LOL! Yours could be from a magazine, they are so artfully arranged. Just beautiful. I'll be back to read more.
Blessings,
Karen

What beautiful treasures, as always! My favorite is the house blessing plate... I just adore those! I'd love to have an entire wall of them... and the ones that have The Lord's Prayer on them, too!

BECCA BECCA,
I knew I should have gone to the thrift today, I was taking a day off. Now see you have made me want to go. Well tomorrow morning I will!!
What cute things you got this time, not a thing there that I wouldn't have bought myself.

Unfortunately our Goodwill has nearly ALL new stuff from Target now. No good "junk" anymore which bums me out I love Target but when I want to go thrifting I don't want to buy Target stuff for MORE at Goodwill then it was marked down at Target. LOL Great finds for you though!
