"Thrift"-y Decorating

I wanted to share a recent find at the local Goodwill store. I don't stop in there often, but I do like to stop from time to time and see what is new. I bought this oil painting for $39.99. It measures 45" x 33". I hung it above my bed to tie in with all the ship pictures I have in my bathroom. I just love this painting. It is so peaceful and relaxing. And what a deal! The frame is so nice.

I have donated so many nice things to Goodwill through the years. I truly hope someone found a treasure when they found my donation. I realize that others do the same. You never know what you will find at a thrift store. I have read so many blogs where others have found some awesome furniture pieces or art.

I was just admiring my mom and dad's collection of sailing items...paintings, etc., and I just love that look- what a great buy that was that you got!

Isn't it wonderful to find a treasure! I also like knowing I am continuing the recycle/reuse motion. I give to thrift shops hoping more love is down the road for my outgrown treasures!

Do you think that you'll have some sales again of things you don't want, on your blog?
