My Goodwill Finds.....

Be sure to stop by Southern Hospitality and see what other treasures people have found.
This week I stopped by our local Goodwill and found these fun things.
Cheerleader throw (it feels a little stiff and still had the washing sticker on the back so it is brand new) - $2.99
Two books for Lexi - 15 cents each
Decorative Accents for the Garden - 99 cents
Unopened package of finials - $1.99 (Look at what Ramona does with finials!!)
Care Bears cross stitch (Lexi wants to try it) - 50 cents
We are on vacation this week, but just doing things around the area. I'll be sure to visit you as I can. On Monday we are headed to a water park in Denton, Texas. I'm sure it will be lots of fun!

Our GW always has books for $1.50 at the cheapest so I never buy books there! Good finds for Lexi!

Those are some good finds, Darlene! The cheerleader throw is cute as are the little books. And that's a snazzy idea about the finials.

Hope the play went well!

Love the cheer throw! Books love me some kids books! I can read those so much more than anything else.

Oh and the amusement park...I am like you I can't ride many rides anymore...guess the age is catching up with me. Looks like Lexi had a great time! The beautiful smile she has shows it!

Now the water park...love it when I feel like I own the park and no one is hardly there...glad your vacation is going great...

Have a great weekend...I am trying to catch up on so many blogs!
