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-

Savoring the Summer

Wow
Where does the time go?
You wait all year for the relaxing days of summer
 and its already mid July-

Do you ever wonder why?  I seem to be doing that a lot lately-
It's time to savor the glorious weather, the eased up schedules,
 the added freckles and enjoy the moment-













Enjoy each day
Live for the moment
Love your life
Shower kindness wherever you go
"Be the change you wish to see in the world"

Take care, gotta fly-
Claire
