Mini Good Will Haul

I think I've said before that the Good Will here in S. GA, is not like ours in N. Georgia.  To begin with, it's small, and the prices are somewhat higher on most items.  They are more like a salvage store because they will have large quantities of certain items, like ladies sandals. They had some that were really cute, new, and for $13.  They had a whole rack of non-stick pans, still with the packaging on the front.  They were $12.99.  It's just quite different. The visit before this week was a really good one.  I found some wonderful bowls, a planter, a pretty sham.  This week I bought another sham, and a hobnail pitcher.  I think it is a syrup pitcher.  It's only 5" tall and has the knobs and bars.

pillow sham (1.99)  I'll show you where it landed in another post.

This belonged to my MIL.
S/P shakers are vintage



The plates are Currier & Ives, The Old Grist Mill

If anyone knows what the name of the white vase above is, please let me know in the comments.  We found it in one of the storage sheds.

I love having vintage items in this hutch.  Cookbooks go years back, and the Southern Living books on the left are from the 80's.  They all belonged to my MIL.

I painted the hutch some time ago, and we are enjoying the change.

So only 2 items from GW this time, but there wasn't lots of choice.

On another note, I've posted about clearing out some of my decorations stored in bins in the basement.  I'm happy to tell you I've emptied 6 bins.(I had 23 bins). There is a huge shelving unit that has lots of stuff that can go too.   I found it hard to purge Christmas decor, but by the time I got to them, I was tired. So I'll go through them another day.  I plan to purge lots of table linens as well.  I love table cloths and runners, and have so many that I need to really let some go.  I'm planning a yard sale when I'm through purging.  Prices will be low, because I want it gone!!

Updating Old Tables & Lamps

I've been busy for a couple of days making some changes to some of my small tables and lamps.  Both are easy DIY projects that don't...
