I can't help myself but to pop into Goodwill throughout the holiday season.
I pass up the 'Ugly Sweater' display easily.
(I lived through the 80's after all and probably owned a few.)
I have a deep seeded need to keep a lookout for vintage ornaments.
The quest gets me in the mood to decorate.
Sadly, this year no vintage ornaments have flown into my cart,
but a few goodies have found their way in.
A Christmas Card List tin.
The original cards are inside.
Before the days of excel spreadsheets and downloading labels.
Even e-cards for that matter.
I think it can have a whole new life holding Christmas tags.
The little chick cup has a new purpose too.
Keeping my earrings safe for 10 seconds before I lose them.
Then there's this:
I've looked for a year for a large piece of artwork for my apartment.
It started it's life at Marshall's, the tag was still on it.
It eventually found it's way to Goodwill where it was waiting for me.
It instantly made me think of Cheryl, Jenny and Jeanne.
Our Porch Nights live on.
Three lovely ladies, gorgeous.
I think it looks pretty fantastic with my little metal tree.
