All south west Florida Good Will Stores had a 1/2 off day, I picked up some good finds!
Hi there! Hope you are enjoying your week end I don't know if your local Good-Will thrift store was having a 1/2 off day but they were in these parts. It's a crazy day there, the lines are very long and people will run you down if your not careful. I went later in the day and I still found some really neat stuff. Lets take a look....
A very pretty wire basket for 3.00 Looks so pretty on the table and counter and can be filled with so many things.
I also picked up this very ancient crock ,It does show signs of some wear for sure. I can only imagine what was once made in this crock. My grandmother used to make Polish pickles in a crock just the same as this. They were the best pickles ever the smell of fresh dill and garlic was present when we would lift the lid when gram wasn't looking, she would always know though... "stop opening that lid", She would yell to us. She somehow knew but they were well worth the wait especially paired up with some homemade kielbasa from my home town.
I bought these small tiger stripe pumpkins at Wal-Mart, they are so darn cute!
I think my favorite find of the day was this Pottery Barn set of dishes, 4 Super huge dinner plates and 4 huge salad plates. The dinner plates are 12 inches wide. The golden color is very pretty.
Not a bad find for 7.50 if only there was soup dishes there, but I have looked them up online at Pottery barn And they could be ordered @29.99.
This very pretty teapot from Elite, dishwasher and micro safe, I think little Natalie has graduated from the little kids set so this will be hers. She was actually with us shopping so she was excited about a big girl set. The cups and saucers are Imusa and go so very well with the Tea pot. The cups are small cups and there is also an extra saucer for goodies. You haven't been to a tea party until you have been to Natalies. Pretty table cloths, napkins, and even signs. You really must attend some time.
I also found this very tall tin "vasin" , my home made word to match this piece. I don't know what I'll be doing with this but I certainly will give it some thought. I also bought 2 brand new Iron curtain rods and some wonderful big childrens books and all this for 30.00. So have you found any treasures this weekend? So very happy you stopped by so I could share my finds. This only makes that statement true....ya never know what your going to find.
Welcome everyone! It's finally Christmas here at Sweet Tea N' Salty Air, a time for rejoice, and happiness to share with family and friends! Traditions are also kept such as here every Christmas morning I make homemade cinnamon buns a sweet doe recipe from my late gram. Well what are you waiting for come on in!
Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
Little miss smarty pants which is my oldest daughter decided to show off with he…
