Adds, Moves, Changes, Mergers and Acquistions




Look what I found! I was sooooo thrilled.

I have been hitting Goodwill about once a week at lunchtime. Usually, I sadly leave empty handed. But this week was pay dirt. I only found one thing, but it was awesome.


See! Made in ancient Thailand.... LOL!
Very Rare and highly prized! snicker.....

Here's the deal .... Every day a certain week number or color is an additional 50% off. Every Saturday is also 50% off. This particular lunch hour it was week 45 or the color green.....
$2 bucks!!
SWEET SCORE! RIGHT?

Of course this fact only fuels the treasure hunting addiction!

I knew that I must have it. I simply needed it and that was all there was to that! But where would I put it? Oh bother!
There is always room for more in a small cottage.....



Well,I did find a spot for it and I am really happy that
I went ahead and got it. This is where I decided it looked best.








Love it!

Oh Liz!
I love it sweetie. It is just perfect. Your plates look absolutely gorgeous in it. Matches your wood colors too.

I have one that I hung on my dining room wall above my buffet. I just love it. Oddly enough I found mine at Goodwill also. I painted mine pink for my red wall. It looks positively beautiful on the wall.

Thanks for sharing sweetie. Just love it.

Country hugs...Sherry
