Crafting, Good Will Hunting and Shopping at Ollie's

I have been busy crafting on my four day weekend.

I did some little sewing projects. The purse I embroidered the butterfly design on my machine. The design is not my original. If the designer recognizes their design let me know and I will give credit where credit is due. I added some rosette trim.
The little pillow I sewed and added the trim. The little wall hanging thing was silver. I covered it with scrap booking paper and added lace and scrap book flowers. I love to alter items, scrap booking has become a second hobby for me.

I transformed these ugly gold cherubs to the glittery beauties you see below. They are all ready for my Christmas tree this year. I  spray painted them and then gave a second coat of Gesso. I applied modge podge and sprinkled them with iridescent glitter.

Goodwill HAUL

I  went to Goodwill Saturday morning.  I found a few little items. The two little candle votive holders are from Kirkland  .

The two white candlesticks were 3.00 and the little bunny was a 1.91

Ollie's Haul
I went to Ollie's it is a discount store that sells overstock buy outs from other stores. At times I can find some neat finds. This weekend I found the little chicken wire basket. I use it to store my napkins on my kitchen table.
I found a similar larger basket at Ross sometime back. I use it store cook books.  It is sitting on a bench with a Longerberger basket.
I also found this set of three wooden candle sticks. They were only eight dollars. For wooden candlesticks I thought that was pretty darn good.


  1. You found such pretty things! Love them all. I have some of those baskets, and love using them. Great buys!

  2. Looks like you found a lot of good deals! I like those wire lined baskets. I found some of those at Walmart in a large size too.

  3. I love how you've re-purposed everything! The basket and the angels are my favorites. Great job!
