Vintage Mason Jar – SCORE

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. They weren't specially marked.  Just sitting in the midst of the glassware, minding their own business. You better believe I swooped in, tore them from their… Continue reading Vintage Mason Jar – SCORE

A Little Bathroom Beautification for Book Project Bonanza Vol. 2!

We haven't talked that much about our Bathroom.  I recently showed you a peek of mine in DC when revealing my closet clean-up skills last week.   But the only glimpse you've gotten of the water closet in Pittsburgh was when I showed you our first B&B artwork. Surprisingly, the room has 3 other walls you… Continue reading A Little Bathroom Beautification for Book Project Bonanza Vol. 2!

Weekend Score! ~ Crystal Candlesticks

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

WEEKEND SCORE – Goodwill Meets Target?

While on an adventure to a Target we don't typically frequent North of Pittsburgh, we came across a 'legit' looking Goodwill.  It was previously an Ekerd and took advantage of what was the drive through pharmacy and instead allowed you to drive up and donate.  Well we couldn't pass that up!  And boy was I… Continue reading WEEKEND SCORE – Goodwill Meets Target?
