Goodwill was SO BUSY. I was upset. I couldn't even get my cart down the aisles! What were these people thinking? They KNOW that I like to look at stuff by myself! Harumph!! Plus...I had a UTI and wasn't feeling 100%. It must be all these thrifting blogs getting the word out that Goodwill is the place to shop!!
Next....I had been looking for a lamp for my formal living room. I have a really long white couch in there
(7 ft), so I only have one small table on the side of it. I needed a tall lamp there. I was willing to wait for it and find the deal at Goodwill. Lamps are always available at Goodwill. Found it Monday!
There was just one more lamp I had spied in there the other day. It was still there, all by it's lonesome waiting on my return. I bought it Monday for $4 and I'm hoping it will give some nice light at night next to the computer. Don't you like the gold frame and lamp next to the black?
As we were shopping, we were
So...we were off to Big Lots. I was dreaming of finding those lanterns. Not one single lantern to be found. Oh well...we looked around and I found this.
I've decided to wait until I decorate my mantle for Fall this coming weekend to do the reveal of that little makeover. I'm still getting use to it and we found something at Goodwill today that is now on the mantle. We were both undecided about how it looked...it's a very dramatic change, but the Goodwill find brought it together and I'm starting to think we made the right decision. With the Fall decor going up and all those bright colors to hit my mantle....I can't wait to show you. Those containers will just have to wait until this coming weekend and so will you!
I've got the Pig reveal to do next. Promise!! She's just gorgeous!!
