Goodwill Haul and Projects

Good Evening Bloggers! I am writing this little note short but the post is long. I went to Goodwill today and wanted to share what I found. Also I have been busy with projects and wanted to share these as well. Hope you enjoy! I absolutely fell in love with this picture of a log cabin. I think an artist specifically made this for a couple. The little sign in the picture says Saundra and Brian. The colors were just so wonderful it had to come home with me for 3.93.
The way Goodwill had these hearts package it looked like it was one fluffy lace heart. But when I opened it, I realized there were several hearts. These might seem cheezy, but I love them! 1.91
This little beaded purse was a 1.91. You all know I can't pass up a cute beaded purse.
These two little snow men captured my eye. I am drawn to creams and browns. So these had to come home with me for a 1.91.
ALTERED BOTTLES Most of these bottles I found at yard sales for 25 cents each. However, the blue one is a syrup bottle I washed and decided it was too pretty to throw out. The syrup bottle turned out to be my favorite of all the bottles I have altered.
FABRIC JOURNAL I wanted to combine my sewing with my scrapbooking. I thought I would try to make a fabric journal. It did not turn out the best, but I like and think it is pretty sort of. I don't know who to give credit to for the embroidered rose on the front and the fan on the back cover. If you see your design, please let me know I will give your credit.


  1. Cute finds. I don't think the hearts are cheezy at all. Love them.

  2. What cute things here. Love the little hearts...I think they are cute. I can see that you have put a lot of work into your fabric book. It is darling.

    I LOVE that little log cabin and how sweet that it was done especially for someone- xo Diana

  3. Oh I do love the little snow men. Looks as though you had a great time at Goodwill.

  4. Oh I LOVE those cheesy hearts! I would tie them to the back of a chair. :)

    I have a praise in that our home has officially sold. I now have just 32 to days to find a home, pack and move. A little pressure? :) We put a bid on a home yesterday that will give "The Money Pit" a run for it's money.
    I wanted to let you know that I so appreciate all of your support and kind comments and if I am absent the next few weeks from your blog please know I will return soon.

    For whomever you nurture, have a happy and blessed Mother's Day.
