Tuesday's Club G.W. {Goodwill} with Charm Bracelet Diva No. 21, Features and a Holiday Wish

November 21, 2011


I can't believe it's almost Thanksgiving.  Because that means it's almost Christmas.  And that means another year has managed to fly by.  How DOES that happen?  I'm partly excited and partly overwhelmed at the thought of it all.  And so another holiday season begins...............

I want to thank all the well wishers who sympathized with my recent Internet troubles.  It's a real drag to have to deal with it when you're a blogger.  Fingers are crossed as I type this....now on to features and the party! 

I'm loving that the first three features are new faces to the party.  Be sure to stop by all four features and say hello!

Rachel @ Acts of Life
Okay, this is one of the coolest things I've ever seen.  Yes, I know I'm pathetic that way.  But just look at the color!  Seriously, I was longing for a vintage scale for quite some time but just couldn't seem to find one that's reasonably priced.  Then Rachel shares this great e-bay find of only $15.00 (by her sweet hubby, no less!) and I was motivated to give e-bay a look-see.  Somehow {?} I got involved in an auction for a vintage scale and what do you know?  I got it!  For $11.50.  I can see how people get seriously addicted to e-bay.  But that probably won't ever happen to me, of course.  Stop by and say hi to Rachel. Tell her I sent you.

Denise @ Pink Postcard
What do you get when you combine Goodwill, some white paint and a little Pier One inspiration? This gorgeous thrifty lamp redo. I'm loving me some pink right now! Stop on by Denise's blog for a tutorial and feel free to drool over her fabulous white living room!

Can you say ROOKWOOD?  Heather hit the jackpot with this Club G.W. find, one of the best I've seen yet!  This girl knows her stuff, too.  She nabbed up this authentic Rookwood pottery beauty for a mere $2.99.  She says it's worth several hundred dollars!  Cha-ching!  I want to go Goodwill shopping with HER!

Nothing like a 50 cent garage sale mirror to get those creative juices flowin'.  Vanessa really put her personal stamp on this one!  (No pun intended.)  Go on and give her some blog lovin' and check out this crafty redo. 

I know I've featured my friend Anita and her amazing shabby chic Texas ranch at least once before but I can't help myself.  I mean, look at that porch!  Stop on over and she'll share with you an amazing transformation of an old run-of-the-mill chandelier into a spectacular shabby chic chandy. Best part: it was free, thanks to her infamous friend Peggy who I REALLY want to meet. (I think Peggy's like her thrifting angel or something.  Here's to wishing I had me one of those....).

Party time!

I have been having computer trouble all fall, so have not been able to play along. My Thanksgiving wish for you is that things go smoothly from this point on.

I am still looking for a great scale find. I have a mini one (from Sal Army) to hold me over, that will look better after a redo. The trouble with ebay is I would go into shipping cost shock.
