Goodwill/Yard Sale Finds

I have a love for both roses and roosters. I found these little rooster salt and pepper shakers at goodwill for a mere 1.91. This is my update for my blog this weekend. Due to working full time I don't have time during the week to update!! I want to thank my new followers and all who visit my blog. I love the blogging world. I spend several hours looking at other bloggers beautiful blogs. say that 3 times LOL
Here is an up close view of the sugar bowl.. You gotta love thos delicate pink roses.
I just love this creamer and sugar set. They were also in that box of 4.00 dishes. The bottoms are a mark that states they are made in Germany.
Full View of the Casserole dish.

Up close view of a casserole dish that was in that same box of dishes for 4.00.

Another view of the soup toureen.
I think this soup toureen was done by a person who did ceramics. It looks homemade. But I love it all the same!! I found it at Goodwill for 4.99.
Another view of the dome and plate.
I found the plate in a set of dishes at a yard sale. A set of about 27 plates and cups and saucers and salad and desert plates all for $4.00.
The little dome I placed on top of the plate was a GoodWill find for 2.92 , it had the little pink bow attached. I added the silk rose and pearls that I already had on hand.

I also found at the Dollar Tree, these beautiful rose note cards!! I rarely shop the Dollar Tree, but with finds like these, I just may have to go more often.
I also found this pink satin bunnie in the Easter decorations at the Dollar Tree. I thought he was precious.
I found pink rose petals at the Dollar Tree. Does anyone have any idea how I can use these?? I could not resist because they rose petals.
Another little pillow I made, I love to use earrings and other jewelry on my pillows. The little heart ornament came from Michaels. I have been trying to use up some of my craft materials because I am such a junk collector LOL.

I have several other items to post at a later time. But after the long drive from Georgia I am too tired to post them now.
I made this cute little velvet pillow from a place mat. This was a scrap of a bigger peice of the velvet. I am going to make another larger pillow. The little heart was an ornament I purchased at AC Moore. And I always have a collection of satin roses on hand.
Another GW find!! A pretty little heart clock, I love that it has pink hands!

I have been doing a few projects since the weather has been so cold here in Myrtle Beach. Above is a floral arrangement I did. I bought the metal piece at Goodwill for 1.00 and the other florals I had. The bird was a Christmas ornament from JC Pennies that I purchased after Christmas.

My House

This a better view of the birds I found at Goodwill.

This is a picture of my dining room table after Christmas. The soup toureen (spelling is a ?) is another good will find for 8.00 . Also the two candle stands were 2.00. The candles are left over from Christamas. The two little birdies are Goodwill finds as well for 2.00. I embroidered the table scarf with red rose and gold roses. I have the Old Country Rose China from Royal Daulton so the scarf matches them perfectly.

This is the back of the vest. Not bad for a beginner eh? I used Sue Box designs to embroider with my machine.

I bought this vest at Goodwill for 3.00. It was a plain brown sweade like, I embroidered the designs on the vest. This is the front of the vest.
I have a Husqvarna Rose embroidery machine. I love embroidery on items, I am still developing my skills. This is a picture of a pillow case I embroidered and sewed lace at the bottom. I think it turned out nice.

I bought the pie stand at a yard sale for 5.00, I changed the plates and put salad bowes. They have a beautiful rose pattern in the center of the bowl. I also added the silk roses. Some one told me its in bad taste to use silk flowers in your house. But I can't resist silk roses.
This is a picture of the decorations on my countertop. My living room is burgandy and green and some red accents. I am not real happy with the picture, I put a peice of foam board up to block out the coffee pot behind the counter. It didn't work too well.
Here is another view of the lamp. I love the delicate pink rose. Pink is my favorite color. The frame is another Goodwill find for .99 . It was a silver color and I painted it a cream. The print in the frame came from a box a mug set came in, I cut the rose pictures in an oval to fit the frame. I love to recycle and reuse. The picture was gift within a gift.

This is a picture of what I have on my kitchen table. My husband and I rarely use the table since it just the two of us. We eat on small folding tables in front of the television.
The lamp I purchased at Goodwill for a whole 3. 98. It was half price that day.
I have then setting on my pine cupboard in my kitchen. I especially love the bunnie with the blue ribbon.

I found this floral teapot at a yard sale for 50 cents. It is missing the top, but makes a great vase for displaying some silk roses. I love bunnies, I display them all year round.

These are pictures of the decorations in my house.
