7 Days of Somethings: Day 6

I was a slack-off yesterday. No "Day 6" posting and no "Photo Friday" posting. But it was a busy day; Dentist appointment, then work, then Cleveland Indians game, then sleep for 10 HOURS!! It was an unprecedented morning here in our house -- the boys slept in until 9 o'clock! 

I am well-rested and back at it!

Today we'll be venturing away from garage sales and trash finds and heading into another one of my favorite shopping venues -- the thrift store.

On Thursday I spent the afternoon in Akron having lunch with D then visiting Goodwill Industries to talk about some potential blog posts I might write for them in the future. Exciting stuff!! Of course, after our meeting, I couldn't help but do a little shoppin'! I didn't have a ton of time, but I managed to scoop up these goodies:

Ann Taylor flats, size 6. I'm a size 7 so I sorta feel like the ugly stepsister shoving my foot into these, but I'm  convinced that they'll stretch. That or I will painfully wear them with a smile on my face :)
Gianni Bini gold sandles! Fit perfectly and I already wore
them to work yesterday. GREAT find!! 
Mortons Salt Tin. Looks vintage but I think it's a vintage replication that was probably sold at Home Goods or something.
Another one of these white ironstone vases. Love love! I used one of these on my three-tiered painted table.
Just a little glass jar.
White ironstone-ish utensil holder. I've been wanting to replcae my stainless steel one for awhile. This is perfect!
Wooden picture frame. Looks like there was something glued to this then yanked off. I thought it had some potential...

The next few items came from Goodwill's outlet store. It's connected right to the main Goodwill store, but has a different entrance and checkout. This is digger's paradise!! Everything is super, super cheap, but you have to DIG!

MORE Ball Mason jars. I am stocking up on these for my end of summer sale. Plan to DIY them up to look like these...

A little mini cowboy boot. It just made me smile, partner.
Wood crate to be painted and distressed. 
Wood candle holder. Random? Yes. But, I plan to finally start converting my cheese dome collection into something and this is EXACTLY what I needed to do something like this....
Saw these pictures of Enjoy Cupcakes storefront on the Design is Mine blog.
 How cute are these pedestals! I'd like to glue that random wood candlestick to the base of a cheese plate,
paint them a fun color, put something cute on top, then cover them with the
glass dome. Easy peasy. Oh, and how amazing is that wood plank table they are sitting on!
And last are these rustic little stars. After a little google'n I found out that the cast iron one on the left was actually used as reinforcement in brick walls. Could be cute as decoration, affixed to a wreath, or maybe even a little gallery wall of stars. Crap... now I want to start collecting stars.

Day six was a day late, but there you have it.

Day 7, here we come!

  1. Great photos- but I could barely get past the green shoes! I love them- xo Diana

  2. You found some real goodies there! Good for you. Do you have any idea how to give the ball jars the look of mercury glass?
