Goodwill Wednesday-Edition 1

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

Welcome friends!!

Today brings the first edition of Goodwill Wednesday! Every Wednesday, (until I get tired of going there, because eww and yuck) I will be presenting you with my newest treasure that I have added to mine and Blue Eyes' home decor. He is totally thrilled by the way. Anyone catch that sarcasm? Anyone?

My lovely ladies over at The Two Twins are joining me on this, so after you read all about my awesome treasure, don't forget to go over there and check their's out!!

Ok, on with the show!!

As soon as I walked in to Goodwill, I noticed how many people were there! My gosh. It was like a 50% off sale at Bloomingdales was going on. I moseyed on back to the "knick knacks", if you will, and was very disappointed with my findings. If this is how it's going to be every time I go, I will have to resort to buying cheap, disgusting, tacky heels that they were offering in the "shoe section".

I walked around for about 5 minutes and then I saw it. I've really been wanting a little something to go with our neutral colored living room to spice things up and when I saw this guy, I could NOT pass it up.

Ladies and Gents, I give you,

The freaky looking lamb thing with cock-eyed eyes candle:

Perhaps my favorite thing about this little treasure is the dirt all over his face. It really gives it that special touch, don't you think?

Can I be honest here? My insides were so happy that this little fella was going to be all mine for only 39cents. I mean, what a BARGAIN, right? I'm just glad I got there when I did, because who knows how much longer he would have been available!

I'm thinking about putting him on Blue Eyes' night stand and lighting it. Can you imagine waking up to those eyes?

And just for the record, when B.E. found out what I was doing, he said, very nicely, "You are retarded."

Aww...love.....

Well, that's it for now. Come back next Wednesday and see what God awful piece of crap treasure I can find!!

what really adds a touch of class to the lamb is it's beautiful gold bow. Imagine how freaky the eyes are going to look when you light the candle! lol

That really is freaky. Is there anything like that but a pig instead of a lamb? I would love to purchase and scare people off.
