Goodwill Hunting

I have a recently acquired problem that involves now working from home, my days now typically start with a cup of coffee and a “oh, I guess I could make a quick run over to Goodwill”. This is a problem people, mainly because once you start going to Goodwill on an almost daily basis the lines between a really cool find and a piece of junk start to rapidly blur. I think I had a pretty good haul yesterday though.

I’m a lover of personal photographs, it’s a trait I got from my momma, so much so that I basically wallpaper every room in vacation, wedding, puppy, etc. pictures so I’m trying to sprinkle some art throughout the house as well.

On my trip this week I scored these two adorable farm oil paintings for 10 bucks a pop. Not too bad. Something I’m learning about myself – I like farm art, barns, animals, you name it. I’m thinking it would look really cool to pickle the frames on the wood – maybe these would go well in the Dining Room or Master bedroom? Thoughts?

Then there’s this little gem. I’m pretty sure this is one of those finds that borders on the line of being creeptastic, but I’m kind of in to it. Plus, I talked them down from the marked price of $30, to $20.

Tip: Goodwill usually does a markdown on every item that’s been in the store over 30 days, and this one was dated just at the one month mark so I asked the manager for a discount, and it worked!

I somehow think with a whitewashed frame this could look really sweet in a girl’s nursery, but we’ll see where it ends up.

Happy Goodwill Hunting!

  1. I see what you mean about the Amish painting however there is something sweet and it gives me a feeling of home. I think it is the Mom doing her daughters hair. One of the wonderful little things that moms get to do to their daughters while they are young.

  2. you had me at Good Will Hunting….
    i love reading your thoughts…
    ohhh that sounded a little creepy but you know what I mean, lol

  3. Sonja, you say “it gives you a feeling of home”. Well I have a great idea, I think you should take it and find a place for it in your home 🙂 It creeps me out! No seriously please take it!!!
