Look at what the Kate dragged in...

Hi girls, so here is what the Kate dragged in....

Kate had been fussing that she needed more family seating

Of course she informed hubs that she wanted the coastal look

Hubs said it would cost money $$$



Goodwill here I come and then hubs was LAUGHING until.....




Kate meowed & called hubs to pick it up from the goodwill

  straight from a furniture store where it was a NEW floor sample

it is twill cotton blend & washable

color is Oatmeal perfect for coastal decor

 Hold on for the best part Kate's mommy gave her a 25% coupon

  for any goodwill in Orange County. The NEW floor model sofa

cost was 47.02

Kate LIKEY!!!!



now Kate is shopping her family member's spaces for

the perfect piece for that bare wall and some lovely pillows

I love washable furniture that looks awesome



more lovelies in # 31 at Country Roads



more goodness


vintage wood Bingo balls


now to find the perfect glassware to display these in...



vintage strainers that I added mirror inside


When I am finished with the blank wall I will post the new photos

Okay Kate, THAT is ABSOLUTELY R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S!!!!! I am sooooo jealous! You have some really scary lucky Goodwill mojo!! Please give us Goodwillers in other parts of the country some pointers...when to go shopping, where to get coupons...is there a secret? Let me tell you, I NEVER find stuff anywhere near as fabulous as you!! You ARE Goodwill blessed, my dear.

PS Hope you are feeling well!

I'm back. I like what you did with the vintage strainers, that was such a great idea! I can't wait to see your newly decorated area with sofa pillows and all!

Tee hee! Love that title! Clever girl!

That sofa rocks it! That is a fabulous find! I have noticed that our Goodwills have started to get lots of "new" merchandise (returns, floor samples, etc...), but here, it is really expensive!

I want to check out the white Ektorp slipcovered sofa from IKEA. We're planning a trip there soon!

Hope all is well out on the west coast girl! I am feeling a little better this afternoon, but not 100% yet. It's either stress or one really weird bug I've picked up. I just feel like crap!

Hugs to you,

Polly

What a score!

I live in the Portland Or. area, but I've been to Country Roads a few times with my friend that lives in Laguna Nigel....it's such a great place to shop and i've had to ship things home every time I go there!

My Vintage Treasures said...

CRAZY WOW!!! You are one lucky treasure hunting lady :)

homebody0404 said...

You know Kate, I've been thinking ....here you are struggling with this disease. It's difficult, it's scary, it can easily open the door to bring darkness into your life. I think you are incredible to have such a strong, positive attitude. In spite of it, you do your thing and enjoy your life.

Personally, I believe that one of the ways God lets you know He's faithful is by blessing you at Goodwill...yeah I know it sounds silly...but still!!! You're on a tight budget but still manage to snag all these incredible finds. No one has gotten there before you to snatch any of these things up, they're right there waiting for you. I bet it keeps your spirit up and your mind racing with creative ideas that take your mind off the L (I won't give it power by actually spelling it out). Girl, it's a God thing.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.

When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior Isaiah 43:2-3

Heidi said...

no kidding on that sofa...it is BEAUTIFUL!!!! awesome. your ideas are beautiful, thank you for sharing your creativity with us!!!

Sue said...

You, my friend, never cease to amaze me! A couch, for that price, with that look? You rock! You must have been in yesterday, since your little corner of the world at Country Roads looks different than it did on Monday! Looks good as always!
Take care, Sue

Beth Gales said...

Now are you selling those vintage bingo balls or keeping them....inquiring minds, like oh I don't ME want to know! :)

Holy Crow Kate!!!! The Goodwill is the best for anything - Baseball cleats/Aurora Borealis necklaces/Vintage glassware and yes - Sofas. you just never know what you are going to find there. I wish I had room to drag home everything I ever wanted from there. I need to rent a POD. You had a great score. It looks fabulous ~ can't wait to see your wall. Your thrifting pal ~ Dee

No way! Get out! I cannot believe you snagged that, I am so happy for you. It is really amazing and I'm sure the hubster loved the price!
I am so loving the lamp and white table. Thank you for all your feedback on my dilemmas. I still need your help though. I am painting the table black and then I will post when finished! I still need to comment on your other thoughts, hmmmm.
