I Love....Goodwill

I have mentioned before my deep love of yards and thrift stores. Two weeks ago, I went looking for materials to make a few cakes stands for Lina's First Birthday. I found what I wanted and then some...

Here are two wooden candlesticks, I found for $2 each. I have two wooden plates which I'm going to glue them to and make two cake stands. Much better than the $60 cake stands I saw at Pottery Barn last week!

I got this book for $ seriously rocks! I had never heard of this series before but they are great, interactive restaurant companions. You can find this particular book here.

Obviously, it was a success.

This is Lina's favorite page. I think she has a thing about mice. Maybe her first stuffed animal shouldn't have been Papa Rat.

This book was also $1. I couldn't resist a book about growing up in the country, now could I?

This statement is true. True of me and true of my daughter.

Here is a funny little book I found about nursing. At first glance, I thought it was a homemade board book because the photos look so unprofessional and grainy. But,'s actually one of the few board books which depict a toddler nursing. The idea is sweet - the execution definitely needs some work. It cost me a $1, so I won't complain.

Lina adores carrying her toys in a basket with a handle. Can't beat the price.

Needs some polish. But, I am always on the look-out for little trays for Montessori materials.

Also needs a little bit of love.

At $1.50, I couldn't resist this sweater for Valentine's Day.

I walked away from my little Adventure very, very happy with my Luck. What was your best thrift store or yard sale find?
