GW Shopping and Debbie Do’s Giveaway

First before I go any further, look at this picture I took with my new camera, I’m so amazed with myself… oh, and my camera too! I bought these fresh tea roses at Walmart for $5.00 a bunch and really should have bought two, they smell so good! I bought them because the day before I had read Kate’s blog Kate’s Place and she had bought some beautiful, fresh flowers and well, they looked so pretty on her table that when I went to Walmart for a curtain rod I picked some up … so glad I did, we received a snowstorm right after I got home, which I knew was coming in a few hours, at least 5 inches and now it’s 11 degrees out but I have a little bit of spring in this corner.
That didn’t stop my intended trip to GW though, I hadn’t been there for a while and was hoping to find something for my walls…and I did:) I got them for $3.99 a piece, love them, and on the back is a price of $85.00!!! They are very well made and the frames are in great condition, no nicks or scratches which is a miracle since GW just throws them all together one on top of each other.
Here’s a closer look at it. The mats are a grayish color which I don’t mind at all.
 The other one.
and the close up, the light from outside is very bright and I’m trying to figure out what the blue is from, oh well, still learning. I’m painting the frames white BTW.
 Guess what I get to do? Yep, I got the go ahead to paint it white, I’m thinking new hardware too.

Our GW gets merchandise from Target, which is nice, you just don’t get a discount on it, so I got the white 8x10 matted  frame for $2.99.
The clock was $1.99, I don’t know if I should take the shells off or not someone had glued them on at one time but I’ll see, the maker of the clock is Sterling and Noble.

I was also looking for mirrors for my entryway and found this one, I’ll see how it looks after I paint it.
I finally found one of these cow creamers too…just .59!

I did good didn’t I ? Now to do some painting very soon!
Before I forget our Debbie Do is having a giveaway on enameled signs from and here is the greatest part about it…you get to customize it, which drew me right in… I’d love that. I would like to have our house number right next to our door which is going to be painted black in the spring. So stop over and read all about it , I know you will be so glad you did.
I think that’s about it, I’ll be back tomorrow with for Sunday Favorites so have a good evening wherever you are♥

Looks like you found some great things at the Goodwill. It seems like you find more when you don't go for awhile. Great prints!

Can't wait to see your hutch painted! I'm sure it will be beautiful!

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Nice finds Rondell :) I would take the shells off unless you are putting them in a beach themed room. Cute cow creamer!

Hi Rondell,
The pink roses are so pretty!! Love the clock, but I would most likely take the shells off unless it was going in a beach cottage themed room.
I can't wait to see your hutch painted!!
