New Year Finds

I was so inspired to read Polly's post A Blank Page that I did a little hunting at my local goodwills looking for that fresh new look!!




this mirror was only 3.99 and it had hubby's initial etched on the bottom, then I realized I had some drape tie back holders sitting in my shed so I hung it from one...




6.00 dollar lamp that had a new shade on it!!!!




After drooling over Pottery Barns new catalog " Farm Style"

I found this for 6.99 with the PB store tag still on it




framed vintage floral print 9.99 love the beveled mirror




Anthropologie journal that had store sticker priced at 30.00
got this for 2.99  So perfect for me to keep decor notes




My six year old Gracie already left me pearls of wisdom...

Is that stinkin cute or what?

If you have not stopped by Sassafras Stuff

make sure you do Polly is such a doll!!!!

Happy January 2nd 2010

OH my - what a fun time you had! LOVE the mirror frame!
Love your header photo too - you look so familiar it's driving me nuts. (I know - that probably reads pretty creepy :)
Happy new year.

I love all your finds. Our Goodwill rarely has stuff like this and when they do everything it's soooo over priced.
Thanks for coming by. I love your blog.

First of all Gracie is adorable:) You have to keep that little note in that book forever. Second, OMG! I can't believe what treasures you found. I love that mirror! And the way you hung it. The journal is great, they have the most creative things and that PB shelf is fabulous too. Isn't it amazing what a trained eye can find in a thrift shop or even a dollar store for that matter? Have fun!

Besos, Rose
