Lately, my Goodwill has had a lot of neat things. If I had a lot of money I would probably be bringing home a bunch of goodies, but since we are on a pretty tight budget I have to choose a few special items. Here are some of my latest finds:
This lovely Japanese teapot was only $1!
I think the blue and brown Herons match nicely with the rest of my kitchen. :o)
This cute cork sculpture was only $1! There is a small missing piece of glass in the back, but I don’t mind.
I love all the detail in cork sculptures! I have a couple of small ones, but could never bring myself to spend the money on a larger one.
See how pretty it looks on the shelf over one of my windows in the kitchen?
This heavy wooden tray was a real bargain at $2.50!
And I knew I had to have this vase when I saw it! The glass is blueish and I love the woven bamboo around it! Someone hid this behind a bunch of junk. I saw it peeking out and pulled it out to get a better look. I would’ve paid full price for this ($4.99 at World Market), I only paid $2.
And it’s “Made in Vietnam” just like my husband! 😉
They make a nice addition to my living room decor, don’t you think?
And Robyn, I did think of you when I dropped by Goodwill this week! 😉 For those of you who do not know, Robyn is a lovely lady with a sweet blog called Forest Hills Road. She has a really positive and uplifting outlook on life. I hope that you will stop by and visit her! :o)
Forest Hills Road has had a “blog not found” message for the last few days. I’m not really sure what has happened to my friend and I hope that you will all keep her in your prayers!
Thanks for visiting! :o)

You got some fun finds!
Very cute finds. I like your teapot but most especially the vase w/bamboo. It's fabulous! Thanks for stopping by my blog and your comments too!
Great finds! I went to two Goodwill stores yesterday and walked out with nothing! Gonna try again Thursday when I go for my weigh-in. Where in NC are you located? I am from York, SC.
I think you got some great finds! Love the last vase and it goes great on your table.
Thanks Charlotte! I live close to Charlotte, NC where there are a lot of Goodwill Stores. I've also found some great deals shopping the Goodwill stores in smaller nearby towns. Sometimes I walk out empty handed too…I think the key is to check back frequently. Or else I've just been hitting it real lucky lately. 😉
Great finds! That wooden tray is awesome. I'm always looking for different trays.-heather(I"m entry #4 in the linky party)

Visiting from Coastal Charm – very beautiful finds!Mary Ellen
Michelle, I just know this is totally God working today. I have tried twice to email Robyn and her blog is shut down. I'm so worried about her and how she's doing. I didn't have a thing to link to this party but I wanted to look at the great stuff and what do I see, but a mention of Robyn. Have you heard from her in the past few days?Any friend of Robyns is a friend of mine 🙂
What great finds! I love cork sculptures, but could never afford one. What a great deal you got. The Goodwill in my little town is terrible and so overpriced, I miss the one in Tampa, FL where I never walked out empty-handed.
You have adorable finds that fit perfect in your home ! Looks like you had a great time thrifting !Eunice
What great find from Goodwill. Thrifting is so much fun when you get great deals!
They made a nice arrangement together! Im really liking the blue and bamboo bottle
Thanks for coming to my party…lovin' that "COOL" tray and WM bottle!Blessings,Linda
I just paid more than the World Market price for the rattan wrapped vase.:( I found mine at Tuesday Morning. You certainly scored!!Fondly,Ann@The Tattered Tassel
Very neat finds! No wonder you ♥ them!
Everything looks so nicely put together. I've had the good fortune of finding wooden bowls and such at GW to refinish :).
The World Market find is great! I heart G.W.
