Hi.  My name is Jaime.  And I am addicted to flowers.

The first step is ackowledgement they say.

But how am I supposed to kick it if Goodwill keeps providing me with such lovely flowered cover things??

For so cheap??

I don’t know, but its best just not to fight it, I think.

Small hanging canvas, .99.  Priced on the spot.  Reasonably:)

Is it not the cutest thing ever??? I ’bout had a heart attack when I picked it up.

This is known as a GBISHA- the ‘Goodwill bargain induced shock heart attack’.

Standing Photo album/frame, $2.99.

Three mason jars, $.49 each,

used to make tealight on water candle holders like this:

So pretty!?

Tealights were $2 for 20 at Family Dollar, one of my other favorite places to shop.

They have candles like this on the bar top where I work, and I loved it so much I wanted to copy it at my house.  I knew Goodwill has mason jars a lot, so I popped over to get these, and found them along with all my other great items as well.

Pretty simple:

Just fill the mason jar with water.  Place the tealight on top.

Immediate pretty and romantic ambience.

What I DIDN’T take home:

This awesome Mossimo from Target (donated, not purchased from Target by Goodwill) striped boatneck pocket shirt for $4.49.

Why you ask?

This:

Normally, I would buy the shirt/item, get home, and notice the indiscretion.  Somehow I noticed it before I purchased it this time and couldn’t bring myself to buy it.  For the best I guess.  $4.49 more in my pocket.

A GREAT day at Goodwill, I’d say.  I love all my items so much, and do not care how flowery or feminine they are.  I am flowery and feminine and am proud of it.  I may have to change my decor ways someday when I get married…but we’ll see.

Until then….

Thanks for stopping by!

Go out and support your local Goodwills and thrift stores!  They do great work!  (For both our closets, homes, and society 😉

      And yes, Wednesday and Sundays are .99 on the color of the week instead of just half off.

    You sure do find lovely things at Goodwfill!

    If it helps, here’s Oscar Wilde, who wrote, “The best way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.”
