Goodwill, Dollar Tree, and Michaels!

I've been seeing the fab deals that some of you are getting lately so I had to get out there and find some for myself!

First stop, Goodwill:

I found these stainless steel canisters for $3.99/set!!! Not sure what I'll use them for but I couldn't pass them up!

I also found this round frame. It's nicely made and I love the shape. I'm envisioning it painted white, but we'll see.

Second stop, Michaels:

While I didn't find the things that I was looking for, I did find these cute finds!

This tin box was on clearance for $4.34. I'm going to use it in my bathroom to keep an extra roll of tp in.

The little cloche has a sweet little nest and eggs in it. Too cute! It will aslo find a home in the bathroom.

Last stop, Dollar Tree:

I found these cute little Christmas buckets. I see them painted black with white numbers painted on them. Stay tuned!

Also these cute little bird tealight holders. I couldn't believe how cute they were!

I also picked up some flour sack towels. They remind me of the dish towels that my grandmother used to have.

My dear cousin also gave me another free piece of furniture! A desk that I will re-do and use in my workshop if that ever comes to fruition! It's not in a spot that I can get to easily to take a picture, but I promise to take one before I re-do it.

I totally apologize for my lack of posting over the past few weeks. It's been a busy time here at the cottage as I know it has been for many of you, too!

My little niece should be making her long awaited arrival any day now, so stay tuned!!!
