This is my haul from yesterdays GW stop and a new thrift I found....First day open!!!!
Frames were$1.00 at GW....the two Very cool hangers I found at the new thrift...
and the wooden lamp, (loved the lines) from GW also....
a great day!
usually I need to repaint and spruce up everything to make it my own....
Only a little sanding and voila!
and ready to go!
What do you think of adding some french numbers to the hangers?...could be very chic!

Clearance section at the Maxx...Thank You...I'll take that.

finally found this window...for which I have big plans for!

No one wants this on a Friday morning in APRIL....
Tomorrow is calling for 60's....
Mothers Nature's going through menopause...I think.
Enjoy your Friday !


  1. I think Mother Nature needs a "hot flash", sugar! That's way too cold for April. But you did good with your treasures....

  2. You said you liked white:) You always get what you wish for:) Just kidding..

    Mother Nature has a way of playing with our Spring nerves..

    Great finds Kathy..I finally now know what you have meant by GW!:) I have seen those stores in Florida..they are fun?

    You know how to have you always go with a friend?

  3. Hello Kathy.nice stuff you find.......ooooooooooo.i 'am in love of the window !! so beatiful.............and the last item..............mmmmmmmmmmmmmm................i don't know...............i must think about it.............60 years !!! congratulations............wowww beautiful age..............for a beautiful woman !! lots of hugs enjoy !! love Ria

  4. I love all your finds! Very nice! ;) Did you know that today is Friday?....just want to help keep you on schedule! hee! ;)
    Have a great day! Sorry you have snow up there! uck! We're suppose to go up there in a few weeks too....I hope it's gone by then! ;)
    A Day In The Life.....

  5. Monique...
    I have some friends who don't like to go to the goodwill...and others who love to.
    These days Dave and I do most everything together.
    If there's somewhere he'd rather go ...he'll just drop me off and I'll call him on the cell and he'll swing by and pick me up when I've gathered all the goodies!
    Give them a try when your in Florida...You'll know immediately if it's for you or not!
    I think it's the "diamond in the rough"
    mentality...that keeps me going back...creating a treasure out of someones discarded "JUNK"!

  6. Thanks Betsy...Today is Friday!!!!
    Great ! I get an extra day ! Lol!

    Ria...I love how things get lost in translation!!!!
    60 degrees....not 60 years old!!!!Lol

  14. It was nice stopping by to see you today...looks like you're keeping busy, I enjoyed the pictures of all your GW finds!

  15. Kathy Girl, You always inspire me. I love the Goodwill. My favorite is the one in Burlingame, Ca.
    Good stuff there. You do a great job sprucing things up. Great finds and a great post.
    That snow is Mother Nature's last attempt at winter.

  16. Great finds! I can't wait to see what you do with your window. You certainly have a good eye.

  17. Love all your new found treasures Kathy!

    I agree I think mother nature is making us more impatient for spring to come and stay!
    The last few days its like we live in a snow dome!

    Hugz, Dolly

  18. Kathy your white finds are perfect! I love all of them....what a gorgeous frame...everything actually is divine!!!

    great finds!

    ciao bella

  19. Kathy, I love all your treasures. Don't you just love GW? My favorite spot. I stop by there several times a week to look for treasures. Haven't found anything great lately. I'm loving all your white stuff. I am seriously thinking of doing a white guest bedroom when I re-do it. Won't that be fun? Love & blessings from NC!

  20. Hi Kathy,
    I love all of your finds and those hangers are just the cutest ever! Yes, numbers would look great.
    That window is reall something. Very hard to find looking that good. Can't wait to see what you do with it.


  21. Great window. Have a wonderful weekend!

  22. Your blog is delightful, always full of new, creative ideas. Thanks for sharing your latest treasures!

  23. Kathy....It has been very warm here until yesterday. We even had to turn the a/c on 2 nights ago and now tonight I am snuggled up in my winter robe with the heater on! That's Ohio for ya! Love all your white finds! You were very lucky!~Hugs, Patti

  24. I love that window! And yes, I think snow is too much in April. Enjoy the weekend!

  25. Wonderful finds, Kathy! I love everything! I can't wait to see what you do with the window. :)

  26. Love all the treasures you found! We have several GW stores that have opened in our area, and I will hit everyone of them!! Yes, I think mother nature is going through menopause!! This morning it is 38 here! My poor plants in the greenhouse, I hope that they are ok..

  27. Kathy.....thank you for stopping by the farm...but my heart aches for you right now with that comment.......your description of cancer has been haunting me.......I'm so sorry to hear that you are going through that.....

    but I'm so glad you stopped by - your blog is full of creativity! and a fun spirit!
    p.s. I'm from Michigan!
    you should drive down for my barn sale!!

  28. Great finds and ready to go except for a french embellishment here and there and...
    snow in April? M.N. just needs a few hot flashes to turn the season dial and bring on the flowers.
    Glad you got to come visit the flowers and sunshine in Texas.
    Happy Day Anyway ;-)

  29. I hope you get to enjoy 60's this weekend. Snow in April is not fun!

    Love all your new finds! Can't wait to see what you do with the window!

  30. Mother Nature can play some dirty tricks with Michigan weather, Kathy! How well I remember.
    You got some great finds!

  31. Kathy, you gals are FINALLY inspiring me. I found 3 antique windows similar to yours ... what I originally wanted to do with the help of another, can't happen, so one day a LIGHT BULB WENT OFF ... I actually had an idea of my own. I am soooo excited & hope I can actually pull it off ... if NOT, then out comes my real talent, writing a check to have someone else do it.

    Hope your sweetheart is doing better ... I think of you both often, my friend.

    WOW! What a stash you got ... good for you. I nearly bought the same frame yesterday TJM as you did.

    Have a lovely weekend.
    TTFN ~Hugs, Marydon

  32. Hi Kathy!! thank you so much for your visit and sweet comment. I will come back soon, I have just seen the photos of your fantastic home!! wow!! and these darling children?? Sleeping Owen is so cute.

    I send you hugs from me

  33. HI KATHY!!!

    I just wanted to let you know that you have won a painting from my giveaway. Chloe chose the winner of the cherry blossom painting, which was number 6 ( sorry:) but because everyone had been so kind in entering, I decided to give away another smaller painting. (9"x12") My husband drew number 205 and that is YOU! Congrats!!

    You can e-mail me your address at and I will send it to you on Monday!!!

    Have a lovely weekend, Kathy!


  34. Kathy, remember when I posted about Melanie's giveaway at Pretties and Posies? Well, guess what? You won!!! I am so excited that I posted, you saw it and you won!!! You did not win the original painting, but another really pretty one that she decided to give away as a bonus. Melanie was also excited that you lived near her. I hope you enjoy your painting and I am so thrilled that you won!!!! Have a great weekend. Love & blessings from NC!

  35. Kathy-I had to come by and see what you are up to--I have been busy working on a silent auction and not getting to visit as much. Can't wait to see what you do with the window! Hope all is well :)

  36. Hi Kathy....I love white too but I have to agree with you...snow in April?? But, it did give you a great pic of the wagon! Love your blog...glad I found you!

  37. Hi friend, I posted last night and then I thought of you and what you and your hubby are going through. I know you will reap "JOY".

    Love ALL you white, but you can keep the "white" in the last shot! hehe!


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me...I am always encouraged by your kind expressions and thoughtful comments....Know that you are loved....xoxo Kathy.
