I mentioned it briefly in yesterday’s post. While strolling the aisles of random cast-off items at my favorite Goodwill, I found these puppies, just sitting there on the shelf.

My parents’ house backs to a creek and woods and I used to scour those woods for ‘treasures’ as a kid. There were all kinds of antique… Continue reading Milky Window Gallery
You know those moments. You’re walking along minding your own business when BAAM you’re hit with inspiration. Well while on a recent trip to the Pittsburgh Habitat ReStore I found this ugly old lamp.

I needed a quick little piece of glassware to replace a nice yankee candle I broke, so a quick trip to Goodwill was in order. And of COURSE I left with way more than a single glass candle holder. Well I came home with two extras I hadn’t planned on. These beauties may look familiar…… Continue reading Weekend Score! ~ Crystal Candlesticks
