Good Finds!

I went out to Goodwill today and found these items at really good prices. Most of it was from the sale color they post each week.

I'm planning on taking the pictures out of the frames and changing their colors for some primitive stitcheries that I will be working on. Probably won't get them done for a few months though. I'm planning on the wooden candlestick being a make-do pumpkin or Christmas item, the little green can I'm going to put a snowman inside it, and the can that is already painted I think I will just put that in my flower garden this summer.

Any ideas on what I can do with the white candlestick? It is very heavy (I think cast iron that was painted) but because of it's weight I'm not sure what to use it for.

The little red stool I'm either going to repaint a different color and put in my flower garden too or I'll incorporate it into my Christmas decorating. Not sure yet on that one.

The snowflake luminary thing I'm going to spray paint white and go from there.

If you have any other thoughts I'd love to hear them. Ya know the great minds think alike philosophy.


  1. Lisa~
    What great finds you bought at goodwill!
    I wish that I could give you ideas...but to be truthful the finds that I posted about last year are still in their original goodwill bag, waiting patiently to be revamped!
    I hope to get to them when the warmer weather appears.
    Keep us posted on the redo!

  2. Hi Lisa,
    Love all your goodies!
    I think your ideas for them are great!
    I don't know right off the top of my head what to do w/the candle's neat tho!

    Have a wonderful day!


  3. You really got some good deals! I like all of your ideas! That candle holder reminds me of a bird nest for some reason. Why don't you put a bird of some sort in it? You could make one or since it is iron you could get any kind of bird and use it in a garden. Just a thought. :)

  4. Looks like you got some good finds. At the moment I don't have any ideas for the candlestick. Too tired at the moment. I am sure inspiration will strike when you least expect it.
