Monday Colors and Goodwill Finds..

what a busy week..
worried about earthquakes and hurricanes..
worried about my son on the east coast of Florida..
You know how those surfers are..
especially when waves are surfable..

Have heard from family and friends in all the affected areas..
all are fine..none have any major damages..
Thank God!!!
Spent Wednesday  with Brooklyn..
as she made her debut at the BIG REAL school..
the one her brother and sister attend..
was really a special day for her Mommy..
this is the last of her babies making the leap from babyhood..
into the BIG kid world..
photos later..
Did Goodwill this past Saturday..
50% off the entire store..
picked up several items..
or rather they picked me up..
hopped right into my cart..

 My hubby was Flight Surgeon for the Blues..
When I spied this, I grabbed it..!!!!

It was a perfect fit!!
(Hubby loves all my neat "Finds" for him from GW!)

When I saw this being brought out to the floor,
I signaled I wanted was marked $20.00..
but this beautiful LEATHER chair..
in perfect, like new condition..
no dings or tears..
oh so very COMFY..
was mine for $10.00!!!
then these four dessert plates with the French flair..
jumped into my buggy..
all four for $1.00!!!!!
speaking of Buggy..
this was parked in front of my house when I returned!
reminded me of a sweet friend who often drove her Dad's VINTAGE VW to work..
often encountering problems which delayed her arrival time..
had a note in the mailbox from friend Margo in Florida....
enclosed were stickers from 30A...
the scenic hiway along the Gulf where we often photo shoot..
but back to my finds...
I think I told you earlier....
I'm gonna be a Grandmom around Christmas..
His name is Braxton..
Brax for short..
Both of his parents attended Colorado University..
His dad played football there..
home of the CU Buffs..
Now aren't these just adorable and perfect for a little boy?
as well as these??

Also purchased a white wicker dresser..
for $20.00!!!!
it is still in my car..
Can't get it out until next weekend..
 when current furniture is SOLD!
ahhhh! the joys of thrifting Goodwill!!!
am joining these wonderful parties..
won't you come along for the fun??

(Please excuse the Long spaces
Blogger has gone wacky on me again..)

  6. Please tell me your friend, Margo, is a sailor!! We met the sweetest couple while sailing the seas and her name was Mermaid Margo. They hail from Florida but I think she teaches in Colorado. I've lost her email and I'm dying to talk to her...oh how cool it would be if your margo and my margo were the same margo!!

welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
