I love Goodwill!

When I go into Goodwill looking for something specific, I never find it. But I do usually find something wonderful!

Look at these great plates that I found a couple of weeks ago. They were a $1.99 each. I thought that they might be ruined because they had rust and black marks. I brought them home and cleaned them up. I wish I would have taken a before picture. I think they look really nice in my office.

When I bought this one I couldn't think of where it would go. But I think it looks pretty here on the sideboard. It's perfectly shabby/cottage for $1.29. Don't you think?!

Beautiul. Yes. I enjoy looking for dishes at the Goodwill too. The Goodwill was my mother's favorite place to shop until the day she died at age 86. For many years I think it was the only place she could afford to shop and so she learned to love it.
Your living room is beautiful too. Yes, we had a Levitz close to us that was closing for what seemed like forever. They finally did close. We bought a wood rocker there several years ago. They had good prices.

Great finds! Your office is beautiful, I could *work* there.

I can't get my mind off of those roses! I've googled everything I can think of. They have to be english, right?
