Pssst.... want to see?

Do you want to see my Goodwill finds from today?  (I told myself I was NOT going to go there today.  But  I had to run an errand anyways, so.... my car automatically turned into the GW parking lot!!)

Look at this sweet little chair:

For $1.99, I thought it would be perfect for my little rag doll that I 'plan' to make soon.  :o)  I love this chair!!

And, if I had not stopped at Goodwill today, I would have missed this:


Another vintage stitchery!  If you click to enlarge the picture, you will see the pretting handmade lace that trims the little spread.  CUTE!

Here's the other end of it ... identical to the first one you saw.  I think it's pretty sweet for $2.  I also found a huge crisp white cotton sheet that I plan to cut up for an embroidery project.  And of course, I brought home a couple more books... one on rug making and one about training  dogs. (for my daughter...mine are not trainable! )  Yes, I'm glad I stopped at Goodwill.  You see, it doesn't take much to make my heart sing. :o)

Great finds Penny, I like looking at Goodwill also but my husband hates it when I do because he knows I will always come home with somehting we don't need???Isn't he just silly, we NEED everything!!!
