Goodwill Finds ~

I hit my local Goodwill yesterday and thought I would share my finds. I picked up the tall urns for $5.99 each. I think these would be great outside or even next to my sink...

Maybe something kinda like this...
And a couple glass bowls for .99 cents and candlestick holders for $1.99. I am not sure yet, but I can see some sort of project with the holders. I just love how chunky they are.

And I picked up two glass plates and two more candle holders. Now I know you have all seen this next action -

But I just love a cakestand! A little gorilla glue and you have yourself a beautiful stand.
I especially love them stacked.

When they are not holding scrumptious treats, mine holds a few of my necessities.

Great finds, Chelsea! I love the urns! Will you leave them as is or paint them? The glass pieces together make great cake stands. Why not use something pretty to hold our everyday necessities. Even bills might look good sitting on there!

The urns look great next to your sink, like they were meant to be there and the little cake stands are near perfection - perfect if they were sitting in my kitchen!

Best wishes,

You must have the best GoodWill in the country! I love your idea of putting the daily "things" on those cake stands. Hmmmmm, now I'm thinking.
Glad you got the candlelight! Do you know where you will use it? I am thinking maybe dining room ceiling?

Wow, you do so good in the goodwill store!
Why not make some topiaries out of those urns. maybe a ribbon topiary?
I know if you found Fleur De lis ribbon you would be in heaven.

anyway great finds!!
