For $10? Why not?


Goodwill was good to us today!  We found a flat woven rung - for 9.99!  I don't have anywhere in my house for the rug, but Janice is going to measure her kitchen to see if it would fit there...its 5'11" x 4'3"

We also found an unsigned watercolour, apparently 'custom framed' by Let's Frame it on Bloor street.  I likie!  It was SUPER EXPENSIVE at $14.99 from salvation army...I think this is the most I ever spent on one item at a thrift store...

These red and white bowls match my set of Christmas dishes (originally from the bay)...$0.99 each! Score!

The Japanese bowls just came out of the back...LOVE THEM!

and some cappuccino mugs for my better half...and a little more blue, white & fragile for me!



Almost forgot!  A new waste paper basket for the upstairs bathroom, and chunky book ends from Prince Edward Island.

  3. Oooh, I like the rug. If she doesn't want it, I'll take it. Why is your salvation army/goodwill cheaper than ours? Our prices are much higher. I saw a cool antique guild frame mirror for $70. Seriously?! I did a double take. It would have probably been $15 at your stores.

  5. I own the teapot that matches the red/white bowls. I use it all year round because it's just too perfect. Plus, it goes well with my white-with-a-hint-of-red kitchen. Some great deals to be had, forsure! Congrats!

    p.s. I think it's great that you're giving away the Martha poufs. I made white ones for a friend's birthday a couple of weeks ago...and then I felt sad when I put them in the recycle bin.

  6. OMG I have been looking for a grey or blue rug with those dimensions EVERYWHERE. I have the weirdest front entryway. I've clearly been looking in the wrong places! If you guys don't want it/can't fit it, I'd be so happy to buy it off you for more than you paid!!!!

  7. Hi Natalya!
    I think Janice is going to go for it...its actually not grey or blue...its very very BEIGE! But I think beige-oatmealy colours look great with grey and blue!!!

    For now the carpet is in my garage! It doesn't smell, but I figure most things can use an airing out!
