Christmas Break ~ A Trip To Goodwill

I took a little break from Christmas shopping, wrapping, and futzing around to go to Goodwill.  I had a small box of things to drop off anyway, so I figured I’d go in and check it out.  While I expected to see a lot of Christmas décor {which they will have come January once I purge my stuff}, they didn’t have much.  I did find a few things though.  These three dimensional snowflake ornaments.

I put these in the bathroom.  They seemed to go well with the wood sign I have on the shelf just above.

I also found this crackle looking urn in a cream color and this large white gravy boat.

The urn says Big Lots on the bottom.

The gravy boat is from Linens and Things.

Since I used the tureen from my whites cabinet for a Rosemary tree, and since the tureen will be going on top of the kitchen cabinets once Christmas is over, I thought this might be a good replacement in that space.

I put some small green moss balls in the urn.

The gravy boat also found a place in my whites cabinet, once I moved a couple of things around.

It was nice to make a little change in this cabinet.   Now, back to Christmas!

Hi Kathy, Thanks for the boot sock tutorial. My daughter lives in her boots and has been begging for very expensive boot socks. I might sneak a few of these into her stocking. Have a great week! E

Great finds. I bet after Christmas there will be much more at Goodwill. Probably a good time to go.

I had a Goodwill shopping day today, too! You're right, not much Christmas stuff out, except plastic this or that. Found a lamp shade, not sure if it'll even work with my lamp, but had to take the chance. The only Christmas decorating I have left to do is cleaning- yeah, I consider that decorating, too, because everything looks crappy if there is a pile of clutter around it! :\

Love the display! Those snowflake ornaments go perfectly with your sign.

We took a whole bunch of stuff to Goodwill last weekend but I didn't go in.
