G is for GIVEAWAY and Goodwill treasures!!

Are you starting to see it at your house???

We are, and I couldn't be more excited!

Yep, little bits of spring are popping up everywhere.

Before you know it we'll all be playing in our yards and enjoying the warmth all day long(fingers crossed anyway)!!

I just had to show you some of the great treasures I have found at my Goodwill recently!
**The info. about the giveaway is at the bottom of the post....feel free to scroll on down :)**

I loved this little jar. It came with a bright orange top, which made me think it was a juice holder. However, I decided it hold my spring flowers beautifully!!
To the right of the polka dot frame is a small hand embroidered picture. Even though it did not "fit" with the colors in my bedroom, I loved it too much not to put it up. Now that I have it, I actually think it goes perfectly.
I don't know why, but I am a sucker for these juice pitchers with the matching glasses. Nothing says "cottage home" more to me than these. This set was only $5. Now I want the apple one I've seen before!!
Finally, this is just a tiny little print of Dresden dolls. My aunt always had the figurines around and this picture reminds me of family. The size is great. It's so petite that I can pop it anywhere!!

Now....on to the good stuff!!


I love, love, love giveaways!! So here is a spring one just for you!!!

I thought these just shouted "YAY SPRING!"
Here is a beautiful, little teacup and saucer.

Two cute spring chicks to cheer up your kitchen!

A vintage-inspired Easter decoration!
And, the H-O-M-E banner that you see in the first pic.!! All you have to do is leave me a comment and you're entered, easy-peasy!!
If you want to post about this giveaway on your blog, feel free! Let me know if you do and I'll put your name in 2 more times :o)

The winner will be picked next Wednesday (March 31st)!! Hope everyone has a great week!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!

1 camera cord + 1 moment to create something = 1 happy girl!!

Yay, yay, yay!!

I found the camera cord....literally, I found it one minute ago!

Guess where it was???

Right where I left it the last time!! :o)

Who knew?! ha ha ha

I would have promised you that I looked in that spot at least twice...either I didn't, or I did and my brain is not working correctly.

I'd say either one is a solid possibility!

So let's get to it....

I want to show you something that I made today.

I had an old book sitting around and just had to try this. I've seen it done well so many times!

Now, I'm not a big fan of ripping books up (that's just me personally), but I'm a HUGE fan of re-purposing things. The book (which I got for free), was an old copy of "Jo's Boys" by Louisa May Alcott. Several other pages were missing so I knew this would be the perfect test-run item.

I got all my things together....I didn't use the stickers on this particular one, but I do think stickers would be a really cute addition to a banner!

I just used a plain, old Sharpie for the stencil. It worked like a charm!

Those particular stencils came from Hobby Lobby for about $6......I have used them lots of times! I love it when you get your moneys worth out of something!!

Sorry it's sideways.......I still have lots to learn about putting pics on Blogger!

Once I finished all the letters I found some ribbon sitting around and used my scissors to cut little slits in the top of the paper.

I fed the ribbon through and voila!!!

Hope you like it!!

I'm going to post again this weekend and show you some new fun things I've gotten from Goodwill!! I've been hitting the jackpot there lately :o)

Hope y'all have a happy, happy Friday!!
