First, this sweet Edwin M. Knowles bowl. From researching it, it was made in 1934. I love the pattern, and the 22k gold around the top. Plus it's shape is unusual. I'm assuming it is a berry bowl.
It would be great for holding jewelry, or placing a small plant in. I will use it in a vignette, probably.
Next, I found this small picture. It's about an 8x6 I believe. It has a date of 1987 on the bottom.
The barn, and the old pump are so charming. The frame was plain brown stained wood, but I used Moss chalk paint on it, to better bring out the colors.

My other purchase was a set of pillow shams! I opened them up and saw they were like new. I knew I had seen this pattern somewhere, but just couldn't think where. I kept racking my brain and finally remembered.
Suddenly it dawned on me where I had seen this pattern. It's the same pattern as the quilt on our bed at the lake.
When I purchased the quilt a while back, the store didn't have any of the shams, so I bought the yellow pillow cases to use instead. Now I have the matching shams from Good Will for $3.93!! Can't wait to get them on that bed, but it will be a while before we go back. Can you believe I found these?
I made another GW run on Friday, and found more goodies. Look at these pillow covers. I don't believe they were ever used. I'm not too crazy about the yellow, but they are a great quality, and I found comparable ones online for $36.00 each. I got 2 for $3.93.
My next find was this lovely colander. I almost didn't buy it but as so glad I did. It was less than $4.00, and is heavy enamel with brass handles and trim. It's retro to around 1950 according to my research. It's wonderful for holding fresh veggies and fruits.
I found this Roseville Pottery banded bowl. The cashier told me someone had just bought 3 matching bowls like this. I guess they didn't see this one. I gave $1.91 for it. I placed it beside my Mother's yellow ware bowl.
I added a piece of milk glass to my growing collection. It was $1.21. Small but sweet pedestal dish.
So once again, great finds at our Good Will. After visiting 2 Good Will stores while we were away, both very disappointing, I couldn't wait to check out what was in our local store. Did good, don't you think? Everything here for just under $20.00!!
