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)
