Goodwill Hunting


I don't have to remind all of you that I'm a thrift store junkie.
My all time favorite store to shop in is the Goodwill outlet-

I'm always on the hunt for cool display items for my fair booth.
That day was no different-
the minute I walked in my eyes shot towards this-
LOVE was in the air!


These shutters-
forget to take a picture before I went to
 town with my spray paint-



And this storage bin-


Birdhouses galore!
I was in my glory!!

The shelf was cute and I loved the black and white trim but not the rest-
 If I was a patient crafter, I would have hand painted it and
attempted to 
keep the checkerboard border in tact- but alas, I'm not-
So, I wiped it down with a lick and a promise and sprayed myself silly with glee!






Isn't that the cutest display shelf for Bless My Nest Shop?
Don't all start cheering!

The shutters were yucky, covered in dirt and webs-

Wiped down and sprayed,
I think they will make an adorable display for my earrings.
Can't wait to show you the earring display cards I 
found on Etsy- adorable!!






This birdhouse step storage got one coat of white paint-
I haven't decided but probably this will also become turquoise and
I have to decide how and what I'll display on it-



Great for storage and the wicker sleigh will be a great display at the Holiday Fairs!



Craft supplies galore-






Fabulous tulle items to use for decorative pumpkins and witch hats!

                                           

Even new gift bags-lol



Iron pumpkins!



Some pretty decent finds for a quick run through
 my "fave" store in town-
Until next Goodwill hunting,
Take care, gotta fly-

Then it doesn't...


Yesterday, I told you about my book, It Works, and
I said all you have to do is believe it will, live like it does-

But, you may take a misstep, doubt, failings, they happen-
confidence is shattered
you feel as though it can't happen-
but you have to get up again-
no one said it would be easy, it's not but
we know that-
we just have to believe in our dreams
to make them happen-

because,
it works-

Take care, gotta fly-

It Works









There's a tiny little book in my library entitled, It Works, on Amazon.
A few years back I wrote about this little marvel-
all about setting dreams and wishes in motion
you can read about it here
It's about 20 pages long-
a quick read but
filled with power-
the power within us to make it work-

Whatever it is-
you can make it work-
you just have to believe in the power of you-

Believe

Take care, gotta fly-
