Goodwill Hunting

I love holidays at Goodwill! 50% off everything! I got a ton of cute clothes for work and lots of shirts and shorts for Max, but that's not as exciting as the crafting goodness. These darling patterns for babies and girls were only .25 each!
I got this entire box full of tiny Christmas goodies for only $2! I can't wait to make little worlds and ornaments and ....other stuff that I will think of later!
I think I'm most excited about this dollhouse furniture kit. $1.50! It's so sweet and naive looking. I'm going to paint the pieces white and add little Norwegian-looking motifs to them.
The only obstacle is....
I've got to clear a little space in my work area! Nothing like new inspiration to get me to clean up my act.

*sigh* Can we have Labor Day again tomorrow?

  1. Hmmm...50% off days? Didn't know about that. Quite the score on the Christmas ornaments!

  2. I looove the hunt too, I don't always get as many treasures as you did, but it's so much fun and I look forward to shopping my thrifty stores at least once a week! I can hardly wait to see all the wonderful things you make with all these goodies! Thanks for visiting my blog, and your kind words! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

  3. That is a great deal on the doll furniture kits! I'm always looking at the big doll houses they have at Hobby Lobby, and the prices on some of the doll furniture is just crazy!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  4. Hi Bettsi, thanks for your comment on my new blog! I love your idea of painting on the little chairs. I've always wanted a life-size set like that myself! I am going to join your followers!
