Thrift store finds

 Happy Saturday! I like to stop by my local Good Will at least once a week.  I don't always find anything I can use, but this week I got two lucky finds.  First up is this beautiful silver champagne bucket.   The tag is marked $6.49, but I got her half price - only $3.25! Score!! As you can see she has very little tarnish, but lots of finger print smudges, I was holding on tight!  I will probably save her for Christmas with some pretty reds ornaments or greenery.

My other lucky find was this Southern Living at Home plant holder. She was only $4.54, I don't know how much she was new, but I would guess around $30. Score again! I'm glad she came home  with me because she will look great on my front porch with some fall leaves or flowers in her.

The rest of the weekend plans are to try to finish painting the island and start packing the downstairs for the guys to lay the new floor.

I'm joining Kate at Flaunt it Friday.

Great finds. I love the champagne bucket, I have one and it is fabulous filled with fruit and some grapes hanging down too. Love the gold planter also. Such great finds. I am jealous of the new floors. I can't wait to see them. Hugs, Marty

Wow! Love your GW finds. You can do so much with the champagne bucket, at you know. :) and the SL vase is beautiful. Way to go.
Have fun getting ready for the floors.
