Keep your coffee cozy!

Take a sweater from your Goodwill pile, or pick one up at the Goodwill on half off day...
Cut the buttons off KEEPING the stiching attached to the sweater fabric. That way you can see the stitching and it will look like you sewed them on your cozy but you just hot glued them on.

Just cut the sleeve off a little longer than you need it. Hot glue a little hem on the cut side. Hot glue your buttons back on, and Viola! Look how cozy your coffee can be!

Pottery Barn Hack

Our story starts with this lantern from the Goodwill.

As you can see it was $6.99 but I waited for the half off day and hoped that it would still be there. Hooray! There it was.

I thought that I was going to have to tape off all of the glass when I noticed that it was removable! Yessssss! (I hate prep work)
I pulled out the secret stash of spray paint.
(My husband tried to ban me from painting.
Something about turning our street multiple colors)
What a great afternoon for s'mores. Hmmmm maybe our lantern would look pretty out here.

Ohhhh it does.... I filled it with Fall Leaves from the ground and a FLAMELESS CANDLE, (they have them at Target) don't burn the house down!

Some other Goodwill Finds thrown in.

Outdoor Chandelier
Outdoor Cart
Silver S'mores Tray
Oh is that from Pottery Barn? Why no, it is from the G-Dub!!
Not bad for $3.50 and some left-over spray paint!!

Lookie What I Found!!

I write for the blog . It is run by Goodwill, so basically my job is to hang out at the Goodwill and take pictures, put together ideas, and present them to the reader.
I was working on a piece about Velvet for Fall. I just started pulling all of the velvet that I could find and stacked them up to photograph.
Oh guess what? This piece is Giorgio Armani and it just so happens to be in my size. Whhhhaaaatttt?
I spend WAY more that I make, this job is verrrry expensive, but I LOVE IT!

You can't find treasure if you don't go on the hunt!

The weirdest thing happened last night at the Goodwill!

It is amazing how many times I have uttered that sentence, but it's TRUE!! This one takes the cake!!!

So I came across these two framed art pieces a few weeks ago at the Goodwill. They were $16.99 each, so I figured I would wait for the half off day, and if they were still there I would buy them for a friend. On the half off day they were gone (of course) so I went on my merry way. (After buying a boat load of other stuff)......Aaannnywaay......
So I'm there last night and there they were.....weird.....maybe someone returned them I don't they were back to full price, (dang) so I flipped one over to see if there was any information about the quality of the prints and that is when I saw it.......

Look at the tag....... Do you see the name.......... S0icher.......

That is my last name......A very RARE last name. Isn't that strange? Of course I bought them are you crazy??? It was meant to be!!
