O.K., I just had to stop at Goodwill again this week when I was out on the road and it was just two blocks off my planned route. I gave myself a 15 minute limit and headed straight for the plates, bowls and glasses isle. I found nothing there so I headed for the isle where there are sewing and craft supplies, kits, yarn, fabric, etc. I found two plastic bags stuffed with linens, each priced at $2.99. Of course they were stapled and taped closed so I had to make a decision, buy both or pick one and take my chances. I chose to do the later, I am also trying to limit my spending to the cash in my wallet. So I headed out and walked by the Holiday decorations tables, I took a quick look and found something I just had to have for 99 cents. Total, $3.98 plus tax.
Enough "talking", I will show you my finds.
First the linens
All of these items were stuffed in my $2.99 plastic bag.
A little closer view
I will add the four cut work napkins, bottom left, to the six I purchased last summer and used in my
tablescape last week, they are very similar.
S M E, not my initials but I will find a way to use them separately.
I really like the tan colored netting like piece on the left.
This crochet edging was worth the price of the whole bag to me.
I really like the flower ring crochet trivet and the two napkins in the back right.
I will have to work a little on the stains.
This is what I found in the Christmas section for 99cents.
The pictures on the side of the box show suggestions on how to use this.
The television in this picture takes me back and makes me think vintage.
The couch and table in this picture make me think 50's or 60's
The box says this is ANOTHER CAMPANA ORIGINAL
made by Campana's Art Novelties in Camden, NJ
I decided that if I left my Noel in this condition it would probably sit in it's original box and not be used, so I decided to update it. I am working on that right now and will show my finished product at the end of this post.
Oh, I can't forget this, $1.00 at Goodwill last week, it will go on the back of my sewing chair in my sewing room.
I spray painted it off white, painted the holly and berries and covered it all with glitter. I had thought of keeping it all white, but this way it will match my Christmas Holly Tea Pot.
Here we are all finished and back in its box, what do you think?
