MY GOOD WILL FINDS

Good evening; I hope every one out in Blog Land had a wonderful day.....  I spent some of my morning taking photos of the pretties I found at the Huge Good Will on Sat..... I wish I remembered to take my camera I really wanted to show you all how big it was,,, I took some with my Phone, and then Honey Bunny reminded me that I could not get my photos of my phone to my laptop,, it I don't have that set up..... : {  any way he gets so embarrassed when I am taking all kinds of pictures, so I can blog about them... It is kind of funny how he gets, so sometimes I really go crazy just to make him crazy,,,  OK I know that is not nice but hey what can ya do.............  So on with the photos.... ready?????

Good Will Finds 001  I had so much fun digging and looking at all the pretties they had,,, I found some real treasures...  I took individual ones too, so you can get a better look at them...

Good Will Finds 039  When I spied this little beauty, I could not get to it fast enough,,,, now when I got there some lady was checking it out,, I was really thinking about just pushing her out of the way and grad and run,,,,,,  but I didn't I just was really hoping she did not want it,,,, and as you can see I got it.... I was so excited poor honey bunny was hiding,,,,,,,,,,,, hmmm wonder why... oh well. I just love the look I don't even have to do any thing to it.. it is very heavy too. I am still trying to find a spot for it,, and when I do I will make sure I show you..... 

Good Will Finds 040

It has such beautiful detail, love the heart shape on the scroll work,,, it is iron by the way...

Good Will Finds 041

Good Will Finds 004

Wish this was not so blurry, but I have been looking for one of these beautiful Angles for so long,, and I finally found one... another loud squeal,,, and it is stone and only 2.00  she is a good size too. and just the perfect color and aging no need to do any work on her either...

Good Will Finds 009  Sorry just had to show her off again..... lol

Good Will Finds 002 Honey Bunny found this little gem, and old iron magazine stand... I was so impressed with his shopping skills and a great eye for a treasure.. I am going to spray paint it a creamy white, if you look close you can see some round circles and I was thinking of doing something with them... not sure what to put in them,, any Ideas Ladies????  would love to hear some....

Good Will Finds 018 

This photo you can see it better,, I love all the detail in it... it was only 9.00... what a buy.... can't wait to get my paint....

Good Will Finds 003

Just had to have these two cuties... the creamer is a very pretty blue, and the vase is a off white,, no markings on the bottom of the vase, but some on the creamer....

Good Will Finds 010

I have not heard of Harker before, but the date is 1840 when the Company was Est. hope you can see it if not click on it and you should be able to read it better...  I think it my be German, if any one out there knows any thing about this one, please let me know, I just might have to Google it..

Good Will Finds 011

Good Will Finds 012

Love the shape of this, it is so smooth, not sure what it is made of, but it is of good weight..

Good Will Finds 005

Now this is just so lovely the workman ship on this is just amazing,, I love the roses around the bowl, it is oval shaped and has a pitcher with it...

Good Will Finds 006

They yellow roses and babies breath and greenery came with it.. they are all in such great shape,, just needed some dusting...

Good Will Finds 008

OH my just look at those Roses on the front of the pitcher,,, I am in love with this,,,,,,,

Good Will Finds 007

Close up of the bowl edge of Roses, just think of the work that went into making this,, and it is mine..... oh I am so in love with it...............  lol

 

Good Will Finds 013

Our last find of the day, this beautiful old very heavy wood desk... Honey Bunny wanted something to sit our flat screen tv on, and I said it had to fit in with my style I was going for,,, and low and behold we found this... now don't pay any never mind to the computer tower on the floor,,, it will be hidden with some fabric just on the front under the drawer... it is our Media center, and Honey bunny just won't do with out it... so I have a way of hiding it.... just need some fabric and a curtain rod... poof!!! gone... will show you when I get it done..

Good Will Finds 016

It even has a pull out side table,  the only thing I plan on doing to this is getting some gel stain to age it a bit and tone down the white,, it is very white,, too white for me.....  but it is in great shape,,, love the key holes I am now on the hunt for a skeleton key to hang from it...

 

Good Will Finds 035

I fell in Love with this too, it was only 2.00 and in good shape,, it is a jewelry box, it has a really pretty green on it, Love the blue flowers on top.  just a few more photos then I am done, sorry for so many, but I just had to get them all on.... I was so proud of myself,,, hope I have not lost any one yet....

Good Will Finds 033

Good Will Finds 034

The inside was in great shape too, as you can see, love the mirror I sat this afternoon cleaning it up a bit, and putting all my pretties in it,, I just might have to show you it held every thing,, it is deep enough for my larger pieces...   Ok I am done now,,, I hope you enjoyed looking at all my wonderful finds as much as I did finding them.... When I find out where to put them I will be doing a post on them.. I did take a few more photos of our home to show,,, but I will save them for another post,, I think I have done enough photos this time....lol

Thank you all for the lovely comments you left me,, and for stopping by,,, I so appreciate each and every one of you.... So until next time; God Bless;

Hugs;

Alaura

What lovely finds, good for you. I, too, love that bench & angel.

I wish our GW was worth going to anymore ... so overpriced you can't get anything.

What great finds! Our Goodwill is getting a little high for a thrift store...they're even calling some glass items "collectibles" and charging $20 for a plate! Congrats on getting some really nice items!
