Wishful thinking and Goodwill

Maybe this is a bit of wishful thinking on my part, but I've started making the charms for the first 10 folks to sign up for the Paper Cowgirl Retreat.

This is the goodies found at the Goodwill store yesterday:
Who can pass up a Scrabble game, you always need letters for something, right? And the icky silver plated plate will make a good altered something, right?, The flower book just had to be picked up because it's got some great b/w photos to use as backgrounds...somewhere..



But the best find was this box with Russian Matches in it:




Must have been some kind of tourist trinket, you think?? I can barely read English let alone Russian...But they looked cool and most of them were in the box, a few missing..looked on the vintage side too, not too new and brite..

We are having a Wonderful Cloudy/rainy Cool Day here on the Prairie!! Lovin' it!!
Hope your lovin' your day too!

I love the Goodwill, Salvaton Army, thrift stores, garage sales, estate sales, flea markets..
I use to sell on eBay a lot of the good stuff I found got sold, but the junkie stuff is more fun anyway. I love making something from nothing, Repurposing things. LOL

I love your blog. Just found it today.
