♥ Goodies for Decorating ♥

It's been awhile since I've been thrift shopping, or at least thrift shopping where I have found something to bring home with me.  However, this past Saturday I was so excited to spy these goodies and bring them home! 

I get really excited when I find one of these brown crocks, especially at a good price, so I knew it was coming home with me, if nothing else did.  I will probably rub some mocha glaze over the lighter spots and chips of the crock to give them an aged patina.



I also have a thing about cookie cutters, especially these red handled ones.  And the price was right on this little mason jar and tin, so I couldn't pass them up either.  Oh, and wooden spoons....I like those too.  I will be grubbying those up a little.



Finding these things is only half the fun.  The second half of the fun comes in decorating with them.  :)  I'll be working on that. 

I had to show you my woolie bunny made by Trace.  I won her contest by guessing how much she paid for a thrifty find and the prize was this little fella.  Isn't he cute?  :)



And just yesterday, I received the penny rug that I ordered from Felicia. It matches my kitchen perfectly!  I love these colors! 



I get a little excited when I get to add a few new goodies to my home.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll come back and join my guest and I on the sunporch tomorrow for a chat.....the more the merrier!  :)

Oh, and if you would like to sign up for The Bible Mini-Series giveaway, you can do so here.  I will announce the winner on my Faithful Friday post on Friday, March 15th. 

Have a great day!

Tammy, I love all the great goodies that you bought, you now can decorate with all your goodies and the blue eggs you bought are wonderful. You could keep them out even through summer.

I also love the cute bunny that you won from Trace. She does beautiful work and puts alot of love in her creations.
I got 3 chicks that she made me last year and I have them out!
