One (wo)mans trash but oh what a Treasure.....

So my friend Tina asks me if I want to look through some of her "stuff for the Goodwill" before she bags it up and knowing her decorating style, I'm thinkin Oh yeah! She bought this flower arrangement mail order a couple of years ago and just decided she doesn't like "fake flower arrangements". Well, I love them and they go perfectly in my dining room.

If these faux bulbs don't welcome Spring, I don't know what does. She said they were an impulse buy at Home Goods. How impulsive of her and how lucky for me.....

Now I don't know how to describe this or why I even took it but it is clearly "homemade" and she threatened to just throw it away if I did not take it. I cannot bear to just discard something that has potential so I hung it in my slider window sort of in between the opening in my curtains. It resembles a wedding boquet gone bad in its present state but I think I may be able to disassemble some of the silk flowers and repurpose them.....any suggestions?

I cannot wait to show you the pictures of the Armoire she is just giving to me (I pick it up this weekend). She said if I buy her lunch at the Ventura County Flea Market in March, the armoire is mine!!! What a wonderful friend I have. Thanks Tina!

Wow, Debbie! What a great friend - next time she decides to make a Goodwill run, you just send her to my house first - LOL! Everything is lovely and I can't wait to see the armoire. What an adorable rabbit planter. I'm a lover of rabbits too.

Thank you so much for visiting me at my blog. I've enjoyed reading yours too and I hope you have a wonderful day!
