As promised, some thrift finds, and things in softer colors......
I'm a Goodwill Girl, but we had a new Salvation Army store open in a nearby town, so I had to check it out! Overall, their prices were higher than Goodwill, but I did find these two cute little bluebird soaps in a nest for around two dollars! I think they will be cute by the kitchen sink.

Vintage floral plates are just too hard for me to resist -- this one will also grace the kitchen.....

Some Santa Christmas tags I made in more pastel tones, with pink roses too of course!


Christmas Paper Cones aka Tussie Mussies!


I received some angels I ordered from Shabby in the City. Did you know she has Flea Market Fridays? You might want to take a peek -- but be sure to let me choose first if there are any more cuties like these, below! ;) She had them for a great price, as she warned that their "bell bottoms" (hee hee -- bell bottoms) were broken...... but I'm thinking on making them new pretty skirts to cover that up!

She included this BEAUTIFUL vintage card that features bluebirds&roses! How very thoughtful!!!!!!!!! I look forward to using this image in future projects; thank you so very much!


One more thing..... guess where dh, Brad and I went Sunday night? To a ZZ Top concert. I have to say, it was among the best in concerts I have ever been to. They lived up to their musical legend, what a great show!! No pictures were allowed, but wouldn't you love it if I could insert a photo of me here with those bearded gents? :)

Oh wait, there I am!
GOOD TIMES!! (original photo Barry B., altered by yours truly :)

Hi! Your blog is so cute! I love the little blue bird soaps in the nest, they are just too cute. I love to go Goodwill'n too! So much fun! I can't wait till they start putting Christmas out. Our town is opposite, GW is more expensive than Salvation Army..funny huh!

Come and check out my blog. My colors in my house are a lot darker/brighter than yours, but you might still enjoy!

Take care, Sharon
