Friday Goodwill Find:Pineapple Bowl Planter

Dear Friends

Happy Memorial Day weekend!  I can honestly say another year older and I hope I'm not in any more debt.  I spent some time with my son and he showed me the town.  The pic of the Bloody Mary is proof and the pic of me is from last year on my birthday on the beach my first IG pic!  I will keep you guessing on the age, OK.  My Friday Goodwill Find is a wooden Pineapple Bowl.

Dear Friends

Happy Mothers Day!  I hope it will the best day ever for you and all "Mothers" in the world!  Today I am sharing a gift from my mother many years ago.  This was my first vintage find and a birthday gift from my mom.  I was about thirty something and had just moved into my brand new home.


Drying Tears

Dear Friends

Happy May!  It is a beautiful month, don't you agree?  My Friday Goodwill Find is late so please forgive me.  Are you looking for a sweet vintage gift for your mom?  I found these sweet hankies still in the box and added them to my collection.  It is a shame hankies are a thing of the past but I truly love them.  When you think about hankies what comes to mind?


Friday Goodwill Find: Beautiful Simple Things

Dear Friends

April is gone and May is on its way.  I have a few Friday Goodwill Finds!  To me they are "Beautiful Simple Things"!  China, Crystal and a vintage sewing drawer that belonged to my great aunt to help display.


Serendipity

Dear Friends

I hope your Easter was beautiful and you are enjoying the beautiful Spring weather.  I mentioned in my last blog post my daughter and I worked on a DIY.  The story is, I found a beautiful mirror, old and a few pieces broken off.  I love mirrors and this one is absolutely beautiful to me.  I found  the mirror at a second hand store and brought it home.  I have been wanting to update my bedroom for a while.  I've had a Mahogany set for over 30 years.  I thought about painting it but could never bring myself to do it.  The set is in good shape but I wanted something different.  I went a month later to the same shop and found the chest of drawers.  What sold me was the curves and the pulls, I new the mirror and the chest was "Serendipitous"!
