goodwill finds this week

Our AC died Wednesday.  It will be fixed today (Friday).  It's HOT!  Florida HOT!  Enough of my complaining - I'm too hot to complain anymore.
Jillian from Catch My Party made me forget ALL about the heat - my Rosh Hashanah dinner is one of the parties of the day!!  I could not be more excited!

Catch My Party

The ladybug and I have gotten in the habit of checking out our local Goodwill Store.  These are the goodies I found the previous trip.
I wasn't really looking for anything specific.  Maybe something to use for the Halloween Carnival I'm planning...or some fun things to revamp. 
I think I got some great things this week.

Dollar Tree candle sticks (.39 each) and 5 glass plates (.99 for all) ) = cute cake stands

Cute little apple dish (the ladybug grabbed this one)  .69 = too cute to pass.

Toss across game (like tic-tac-toe using bean bags).  $1.99.  
Remove the sticker to add Halloween themed ones = 
a fun game to use at my Halloween Carnival.

Little spider tea light holders ($ 3.99 for 6) = cute decorations for Halloween

Total for the trip ~ $9
Not too shabby!

Ohhh, I love a successful trip to Good Will! If those spider holders are big enough, you could even use them as cupcake holders. I just posted about this myself over on my blog. : )

I have never developed the skill to really thrift store shop very well...

Loving the little spider candle holders. Pottery Barn had a similar piece two years ago.

Have fun making your cupcake stands. I used similar candlesticks from the dollar store to make apothecary jars last week. You'll have to stop by and see them.
