Spring Mantel!

It is officially spring here! The unusually warm weather has been awesome. It feels so good to walk outside without a coat and take long walks after supper. I love the Magnolia trees blooming and my cute, little daffodils. It's been hard to do anything inside because you just want to absorb every minute of the beautiful weather. I did manage to get a little spring decorating in.

I found this quote by Robin Williams, it just seemed so appropriate for spring!  

I have really been into aqua and green here lately. I am also a little obsessed with Ball jars. This one was my grandmother's and I love being able to display it.

We received the,green, ceramic pitcher as a wedding present. It was one of my favorite gifts and always reminds me of that day. The white pitcher was a Goodwill find (gotta love those).

And here is the finished mantel. It's simple, but makes me happy!

Goodwill Hunting

I woke up early this morning and headed to our local Goodwill for their 50% off sale. I must say I found some really cute decor items and  I found several tops, shorts and capris for my little girl. It's amazing the name brands that you can get for next to nothing. Here are some pictures for your enjoyment! I didn't include pictures of all of the clothes. And if you have never been to a Goodwill store on 50% off day you are missing out.

This little pitcher was $.25 after the 50% discount. I pictured a little plant in it or spring flower!

This is a small jelly jar (it is very itty bitty)! It was 50% off of $.25 and I actually got two of them.

Candle sticks ranging from $1.00 to $2.00! Have you seen the cute, little cake stands made from candle sticks. I am thinking about painting these and turning them into cake stands. 

I paid $1.25 for this tray! Isn't it gorgeous, I am not sure if I am going to paint it or leave it as?!?! 

Ok, this next find was one of my favorites! My little girl isn't quite old enough for this little grocery cart but I couldn't resist. I always see these metal carts ranging from $20 to $50. I got this cart for $2.00. I literally squealed when I saw this cutey. There is also a seat for her dolly to sit in.

I got his pillow for $1.00. I think I am going to use it for my out door furniture this summer. I liked the stripes! 

This pillow was also a $1.00, I just need to make a cover for it. It is way cheaper than going out an buying brand new pillows. 

So, there you have it! I hoped you enjoyed my Goodwill finds as much as I did.
