|Lamp: $8. Wreath: $1.99. Plate: 49 cents.|
Cork wreath: "I am not from Goodwill! How dare you imply such a thing?"
Nope, just the things on the table there. I made the cork wreath. Pompous little thing.
I gotta admit, $8 for the lamp was a little more than I am usually prepared to spend at the G-Dub. But it was a cute bronze buffet lamp (only the exact thing I need in the hallway) and it is so rare to find a lamp that doesn't need sandpaper/paint/pressure washing at Goodwill. By the way, that is a Christmas wreath originally $8 at Walmart--I know because it still had its tag! And I am not at all shy about using it right now--it can kinda pass for Fall, right?
This was my second trip to Goodwill this week. On my first trip I found this little guy:
I'm almost positive it is silver-plate, and the sad little thing has handles glued on, messily. But I liked it anyway and nabbed it for $1.99.
This is my second silver-plate purchase from Goodwill--here's the first:
It was $3.99--compare that against PB's version (which sells for $24) and I am almost ready to show you my happy dance!

So I smashed that together with these 50% off stems from my favorite place in the world (Hobby Lobby in case you're new here) for a little Fall flower arrangement:
|$3.99 julep cup + $3.99 flowers = well over $8 of cuteness.|
And here's how it all looks on my ledges:
|BTW, all four of those candleholders are the same--they hold tapers in one side and tealights in the other.|
And they are only 49 cents at Ikea, my other favorite place in the world.
|Yep, still not polished.|
|But still pretty!|
Oh, Fall, how you make my heart flutter. I love how things are shaping up. Now if only this disaster could clean itself up while I sleep tonight, I'll be golden!
|It's not gonna clean itself up! |
And I seriously doubt the cat is gonna do it.
