I love getting gift cards as gifts……..

…….especially from Good Will!!!


I had no idea Good Will even gave gift cards!!

My daughter gave me one for my birthday back in October and I just now got around to spending it!

We took a day to go shopping at all the Goodwill’s around town!!! We actually have 4 that I know of but have a hunch there are more!!!


Today was “metal” day for me…….


My first find was this brass “pot”……I think it’s a decorative planter but has no holes in the bottom.

I love the detail of the gargoyle heads on the sides!!!


Of course, when I put it in my cart I had absolutely no idea what I was going to do with it but I knew one day, I would!


When I repurposed our kitchen eating area, I felt I needed to add a plant and the brass pot worked perfectly!

I just set the plant in the pot for now and covered the top with spanish moss!


Next, I found this wonderful copper rectangular pot!  I can’t believe someone just gave this away!


I have yet to find the perfect place for it but, for now, it sits by my kitchen island with a garland of yellow pip berries and an old wooden spoon nestled inside!

I tried to polish the copper a little but it wouldn’t shine up so I decided it was beautiful just the way it was!IMG_7435

My last metal treasure is this beautiful silver piece.  I think it looks like a shamrock!


 It’s perfect for parties to set out nuts, candies or use as a condiment holder!

I know when my hubby gets home and sits down at his computer, these will be gone!! (I need do to something “crafty” with that purple computer mouse pad…..soon!).

There ya go!  Not a bad day thrifting at Goodwill on someone else’s dime!  Thank you my sweet daughter for the awesome gift card!

Until next time……..
