A Few New Things...

Keep an eye out in the next couple of weeks... there will be a makeover on my blog and expect a great giveaway around the start of the year :)

I have to admit, I have a new addiction.... our local Salvation Army.  Now, don't get me wrong, I haven't given up on my local Goodwill(s), I just haven't found much there lately. Plus, it is about 2 minutes from where I work and I can zip in and out :) 

On a visit during my fall break, I found the following glass bowls/jars.  The smallest was .59, the tall one was .99, and the heavy round one was 1.99.  Not sure what I am going to do with them yet, but I am sure I will find a place for them.  

Then, I went again recently.  I had heard that all of their clothes were .50 a piece that day.  I found my hubby a nice brooks brothers dress shirt, along with the snowman dish for .59, and the berry garland for .59 :)  

To prove I haven't given up on Goodwill entirely, here is a few recent finds...

I haven't decided what to do with this yet.  I love the shade of green... perhaps a utensil holder in my kitchen?  Anyone have any ideas?  It was only 1.99 and is very heavy.  

The next find is going to get a coat of paint soon... thought it had a  cute shape for .99

Last, but not least- something I have had my eye out for...  A set of metal keys.  I am sure they are not real and are only decorative, but for 1.49, I like 'em.  Should I paint them?  Decisions, decisions.  

My favorite thing about the GW- getting a 10% student discount!  

Also, here is my fall makeover to my GW find cloche

So, like I said, keep an eye out for an awesome giveaway and my upcoming makeover.
