I always see so many bloggers find such wonderful things at Goodwill. Every time I have gone I have found absolutely NOTHING!! And I would get so jealous. So, a few Saturday's ago I thought about Sherrie at A Conversation At Goodwill and all her finds and headed over to see what could be found.
Immediately my eyes found this pretty pink thing on a bottom shelf of a cart. I picked it up, looked it over and set it down. A worker there asked me if I was going to buy it. I said no, then thought it over and said you bet!
I'm not sure what it is, some type of hurricane glass the worker told me. But it's pink and iridescent and beautiful and I had to have it. And it was only $6.99!!!
I tried to capture the greens that pop up when the light hits it but I just couldn't get it to photograph.
It's exactly the same on both sides and open in the middle. I really can't imagine what in the world it is or what I will use it for other than decoration. But I knew I would find somewhere for it.
If you have any ideas, please let me know.
I also found this cute little saucer for 99 cents. I love the delicate flowers and the pretty greenish-blue.
Another pretty I knew I could find use for somewhere. I am stalking eBay for a matching cup. No luck yet!
This cute little birdie was given to me by the sweet Danish lady that does our bead work. I went by to drop off some things and saw this on her workbench. I told her it was so pretty and was admiring it. She told me it was given to her by the daughter of one of her friends from the Beading Club that passed away. She said I was welcome to take it if I wanted.
It's made of mother of pearl. I'm not sure of it's age but it appears pretty old. It does have some condition problems but my hubby is going to fix her up for me.
We are thinking about having an onyx beak made and maybe emeralds or sapphires for eyes.
The colors are so amazing. I absolutely love it!!
The cute little feet are made of metal.
So for now she sits on my mantle. As you can see I haven't taken my fall decor down yet. This photo has definitely embarrassed me enough to do that...tomorrow.
You can always join in on the Pink Saturday fun by hopping over to the wonderful Beverly's blog to see more participants!
I'm off to making Praline Apple Bread for Ms. Lassen, the bead lady. She called yesterday and said our things are ready. I took all of our loose beads over to her and she made us five necklaces and three bracelets. I can't wait to see what she created!! She told me she loves apple bread so I thought it would be a sweet surprise to send her a loaf!
After that my nose will be stuck in the books studying cytology. I have another test next Friday over 4 chapters. Good lord, wish me luck!
