New Year's Treasures

I was hoping to share my new hallway accessories with you today. But with the cold weather, my door knobs are still a little tacky to touch. So I better leave them alone for another day before install. But other than that, our hallway is done and we are sure enjoying it!

I'm doing great with my January cleaning and overhaul in my house. I'm taking baby steps but I am seeing big changes!!

Yesterday, my 3 year old and I hit up Dollar Tree for some organization bins...Goodwill was in the area so I just had to stop by, right? I know doesn't make sense since I'm organizing and purging at home..but in my defense I haven't been to that store in "ages". :)

I would pick a garage sale over Goodwill anyday but this store holds me over til' spring time garages sales. :) The Goodwill stores in my area are Expensive!! I don't know who prices these items but I'm jealous of your cheap Goodwills out there!

I managed to find a few treasure to come home with me.



This frame was $5, a big splurge for me. But it's going to get a wonderful makeover. I loved the big chunky detail!



The bowl was $1. I think I always pick up a white bowl or plate when thrifting. I just can't get enough!
The pillowcase was $2. I loved the lace detail...still deciding what to do with it.



LOVE was $3. A nice coat of spray paint and it should be good to go for V-Day.


This wire basket was too perfect to pass up for $3. So many ideas floating around in my head for this one!


But the deal of the trip was nothing to decorate with. While I was checking out, behind the glass case window, I see this beautiful bottle staring at me.
Clinique Happy makes me Happy...especially for $4. 


My favorite perfume since high school.

I got it on and I'm ready for a hot date! But I guess a cute 3 year old will have to do today.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Snow is in the forecast for my neck of the woods. What are your plans?

  3. Great finds, Kindra! I'm with you on the white dishes - that's all I own and I'm always picking up more.

    I thought I was already following you, but I guess I wasn't! Good to find you again. My style has evolved a little as well this year. I'm trying to add more pretty and less grungy. It feels so fresh!

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Hubby and I stopped by a Goodwill in a town about an hour from us that we traveled thru last weekend. I didn't buy a thing because they wanted an arm and a leg for their stuff! There's another one about 45 minutes from where I live that is much more reasonable. I'm with you, who prices this stuff?? But you did find some goodies! I love the wire basket the best. Can't wait to see what you do with it and you've piqued my curiosity with that frame!
    Love your hall makeover and can't wait to see it accessorized! Enjoy your weekend!
    Hugs,
    Donna

  10. I am with you on Goodwill - around here they have nothing and are overpriced. But you did great! I have seen so many bloggers using those wire baskets in so many neat ways and I know you will come up with something perfect. I am still loving all your changes!

    I am looking forward to a quiet weekend at home doing more of what you are doing - purging and oraginizing. And maybe I will paint some white! Okaaaaaaaaay not white... maybe ivory though!! ;-)
    Have a great weekend!!

  12. Holy finds Kindra! You scored big!! Love the basket. I need to get out to our Goodwill soon, it seems I only get out there to drop stuff off!!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  13. Love the Goodwill finds! Our Goodwill never has anything so I've given up on it. Your hallway is looking fabulous. Someday I'd like to replace all of our wood trim. It's builder basic stained popular and so boring.

    We're expecting snow this weekend too so we're taking down the last of the Christmas decor, cleaning out closets and getting things organized.

    Have a great weekend!

  14. Kindra..I love the "love" sign and wire basket you found..My Goodwill here is very highly priced..When I read about the finds some people get I say really, my Goodwill would of charged two to three times that amount..Can't wait to see what you come up with..Patiently waiting to see that hallway..As I have said before I love your blog..

  15. I love that frame! Our Goodwills can be a little pricey, too. But once in awhile, you can find a good deal! Hope you get snow... we are suppose to get some, too!

  16. Our GW isn't as good as it used to be, but I did find a few things there right after Christmas.
    Love the wire basket!! I've been looking for some with no luck yet.
    Have a great weekend.

  17. I'm glad you are sticking to the organizing and cleaning. It's such a great feeling when you can see progress in your hard work.

    I'm with you on the garage sale/GW thing. I finally found some thrift stores that I hit up occasionally instead of GW. Our GW's are high too! But the thrift stores are like garage sale prices and you can find the same kind of stuff. I love that chunky frame! I have one that has my grandma and grandpa's wedding picture in it and I just adore the look of it!

  18. What great finds...those are the best. I would say you struck it rich! I am thinking that there will be a snow day in our near future! I hope you are having a good weekend!!!!
    Blessings~

  19. Kindra your finds are beautiful!!!
    That is too funny and a great deal on the perfume! That is absolutely my favourite perfume too since... years now. I LOVE mine always, and appreciate it more now because we cant wear any scents at my work. I got a brand new bottle from my hubby at Christmas..I treasure it...its scent is so clean and I love the smell of oranges and citrus.
    Have a great weekend dear..
