FRIDAY FINDS

Oh the luck I had today!! I walked into my local Goodwill store and instantly spotted this soup tureen!! I hurried my bum over to wear it sat and scooped it up like a crazy lady.

Is it normal for something that holds soup to totally make my day??? Can anyone understand my madness?? Please tell me that I'm not the only one.


Oh, and before I forget, I also found this cute little wreath. I thought it would be perfect for fall. I added a little raffia and I think it looks just lovely.

Oh happy day!!

I need to find a soup tureen like yours - love it! I also love that you took the doors off the cabinets above the refrigerator. Such a cute little space!

I totally get it! My heart skips beats when I find something that will be perfect at the ol' homestead. Great tureen! I would have bought that, too.

Your house is always so pretty.

I want to eat soup from that tureen! Great wreath, the raffia totally does it.

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

I completely understand! It doesn't have to be something big to make your day! There is something so wonderful about finding something beautiful for a good deal. Sometimes it even makes my WEEK! :) And I love the soup tureen; it is gorgeous! Will you use it for soup or just for decoration? Either way, it will be so fun to have! :) Oh and I love the wreath. I'd definitely say you had some fantastic luck! :)

The tureen looks beautiful with your fall arrangement. The white with the falls colors is very classy.

LOVE your tureen! I found one while out at yard sales this weekend! I will be 'showing it off' sometime this week. It's missing it's spoon though. Hopefully I will find one. Thanks for following me.
