Blast From the past

This morning Scott dug out the old percolator that we found at a thrift store to make some coffee.  It is missing a piece so he ended up with some grounds in his coffee but it was fun to watch it bubble once more.

I will have to keep my eyes open for the missing piece when I go to the Goodwill Clearance Center.  Last time I went I found some wonderful treasures and some lovely pieces of clothing for myself.  I seem obsessed with shawls for some reason these days and sound two really beautiful ones in the bins.  I find it so hard to find things I like in the stores these days and am very thankful for the Goodwill stores as they have things I actually like and for a LOT less money. Here are some pictures of some of the clothing I've found in the bins.
Black knit shawl that looks like a poncho
Glam Shawl for an evening out - perhaps with a black tank dress
Crocheted sweater for a Victorian feel.
Super comfy top good with black slacks or skirt and GREAT with jeans.
Koret top with beading
Lined linen loafers with embroidered edging
Crocheted tank - not sure I will be keeping this one.
Perhaps I will stop in there this afternoon since I am off today and only have plans to catch up with a friend this morning. HMMMMM... what treasures will I find?


  1. Oh Becky I think you and I would have a lot of fun in that store. The percolator brings me back to my parents house long ago I loved watching that thing work:)
    Great selection have fun today. B

  2. Mmm.... I can smell the coffee here. Sue
