Goodwill Goodness

We have been on a much tighter budget since we moved into this house. I did, however, get to go to Goodwill almost two weeks ago. I was looking for a tube pan, but found these goodies instead. I love the vintage-looking lines of these kind of baskets. The are probably more associated with funeral flowers instead of the Easter baskets of yesteryear, however, I love them!! I have been wanting to collect little lambs as well, and this guy starts my collection beautifully. He was actually a part of a Nativity set someone made, but Goodwill was selling each part separately and at eighty eight cents I couldn't pass it up. When I see The Little House on the Prairie books, I snatch them up.
Here is a closer view of the little lamb. He's so sweet.

Christmas In The Big Woods.
Gotta love Goodwill!!

I love Little House books, too! We scored a boxed set of the chapter books last summer..I was a bit too excited about that..lol. I think I may or may not have squealed in the store. (ok, I did) It has been fun to watch my daughter reading the same books I enjoyed at her age. I love that basket too..it looks so retro!

Great goodwill finds! Love that basket! Perfect for spring. :) I just saw in the paper that our local goodwill have thrown out all toys and books with the new lead law. That is just so sad. :( Even clothes with small parts were thrown away. How does your goodwill look like?

So glad you want to play the alphabet game with me! :) I'll give you the letter B. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

I spent the entire day shopping at various Goodwill stores and thrift shops. Found some great ice cream and milk shake glasses and tons of wool sweaters for felting. I love it!!!
