GW & GS Finds

It's been a while since I have been to Goodwill or to garage sales, so this past weekend I treated myself. My husband came along for the ride as well and scored on a T.V. DVD combo for his camper. He won't admit it, but he also enjoys GW & GS.
So this is what I found, a lrg pic frame $2, sewing basket $1(from JC Penney), 2 sm gold pic frames $1, silver pear.75, sm frame $1, metal urn $6(a little pricey, but I had to have it),and this beautiful desk for my daughter for only $5! This desk is so adorable, and I am loving the details. The only think is that it's missing a handle, but that's OK.
Imagine this frame heirloom white.(minus the picture)
Somehow I am going to redo this basket, not liking the color very much.

Love it, still deciding if I should keep it as is or paint it.
Well these are my sweet finds for the week, hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Love your garage sale spirit! You got yourself some great finds. I think the urn was great for $6.

These are great finds, Lilia! I love the larger frame ~ the detail is great. I think all the frames are great actually; I'm finding it's good to have extra on hand for projects. Love your urn, too. That was a great price for the desk. Productive trip for you!

Lilia OMG! if you don't want the print of the old guy pleasssssse sell or send it to me. My mom used to have that print hanging on the wall in the kitchen when I was small. Don't know where it is now. It's just a childhood memory for me that's all. :)

I so remember having that photo of the man praying hanging in a friends house growing up. Lots of great treasures! Lucky you!

Great finds, love the desk, it's darling for a girls room. Can't wait to see the redo.

I think I would have jumped at the urn as well, awesome find! Frames are always a great addition to any decor.

Love your blog by the way.

Great finds. Funny thing is I have searched many Goodwills and thrift shops for that picture of the old man praying. I love that pic. Can't wait to see what you do with everything.
