Goodwill Goodies

My mom and I spent an ENTIRE day shopping - I can't remember the last time we did that. I can't remember the last time *I* did that.

It all started because I nearly forgot about 2 $20 Groupons I had for Old Navy. I ran across them the night before they expired - cuttin' it a little close there! So going to Old Navy turned into a full day of shopping. Old Navy, Ross, Avenue, Joann ETC, Goodwill, another Ross. Throw in lunch at Steak n Shake and dinner at Long Horn and it was a very successful trip.

Today - it's Goodwill. I spent $14 and got a large crystal bowl with a silver plate rim (stamped ENGLAND), an awesome metal three tier basket (perfect for the soon to happen office make-over) and a wood mug holder (which I've been looking for). Oh and a cool silverplate platter / tray sort of thing that I will post as soon as I get around to taking a photo of it.

Pardon the mess by the door. Mr. Paisley has been doing some work on the truck as well as some electrical work for one of the neighbors and well...he's been dropping his bag by the front door.
 The basket is super cool. It's heavy and the baskets are deep. Reminds me of a smaller version of the ones they have at Michael's with the $1 ribbon and stamps tossed in! It has that cool round loop at the top - i'm thinking I might HANG it from the ceiling so it's not sitting on the new work surface. We'll see what I come up with. The mug holder was Pinterest inspired.
My mug holder only has 4 pegs...I think it's enough for my decorative edge scissors. I don't have 5000 pairs of them or anything :-) and really, I only use 1 pair. I'm also totally lovin' the cupcake stand with little containers of embellishments. Super awesome.
