Good Deal at a Goodwill!



First of all, I'd like to wish each and every one of you a sweet and love-filled Valentine's Day!

I hope you know how special you are. I appreciate you more than you will ever know!

And now for today's post....



A special treat on one of these dark winter afternoons was taking a run into a Goodwill thrift store.



Within minutes, a couple of delightful bargains came my way.



The $3.99 teddy bear appears to have been handmade with rose-covered fabric and parts of a chenille bedspread.



The little she-bear looks perfect in a white wicker child-sized chair in the hallway. 

The chair was part of a set found last summer at a yard sale.



I added a couple of lacy heart-shaped pillows, also thrifted, for a perfect extra touch.  



Today we are joining Thrifty Things Friday on Diann's blog, The Thrifty Groove, with co-host, Linda, from A La Carte.



WHAT WAS THE LAST GREAT BARGAIN YOU WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO FIND?

You and Kinda both find wonderful things at thrift stores. And if I go with Linda I do too. But I haven't found anything in awhile because I just have not been out.

I love your Teddy Bear.

Love,

Cute bear and great colors for Valentine's Day! I remember way back when, chenille bedspreads were all the rage...

Don't think I have gotten any great deals lately, but I haven't been in the Goodwill Store for quite a few weeks.

Happy snowy Valentine's Day!

Sweet little Valentine bear! And I think the best bargain I ever got was my old Home Comfort 1913 cast iron cookstove, for $60. But that was a looooooong time ago. But even then it was a real steal! Love that thing.

I do not find the treasures you do...I think it must take a special eye to spot them....

Hearts and teddy bears used to be what I collected. I still do collect hearts but put a halt to the teddy bears. Although, now looking at this one, I wish I hadn't sold my patchwork teddies at a carboot sale -- but it was for charity. So be it! Blessings, Tammy
