Goodwill Finds....and one Splurge!

I'm busy painting my new shelves in my great room and have been out scouting things to display on them. I scored some good loot at Goodwill last week and one Splurge at my favorite downtown antique store, which is in the same spot, but has a new name...Mary's Antiques.

My first score was this barn star with a candle attachment which can easily be screwed off. I'll be taking that off and spraypainting this! I paid $1.99!
Glass dome for $3.99!

A brand new in the box Cake Stand with cover....i've always wanted one....$6.99!


Antique candy jar....$1.99!



A stack of little cute plates....$.49 each!




and last but not least...the splurge. Mary is known for her collection of antique tin ceiling tiles that have been painted and polyeurtaned. I had to have this for over my fireplace (the TV cabinet doors are GONE!) and the colors were just perfect. I forked over $65...but I love it!!!
I have one more coat of paint to go and then hopefully I will be assembling a wonder team of 2 close friends to help put it all together. They said they will work for "dough". You two read my blog, you know who you are!!!
