Goodwill Hunting Shopping

What a sunny, beautiful day! After severe thunderstorms and even two tornadoes within 30 miles away last night, today turned out about as perfect a day as you could ask for. There is just something about a gorgeous day like this that just makes me want to get out and shop.

I'm really trying to be careful with my money. This week a client came into the agency wearing the cutest outfit and sporting a darling purse. She was so excited because she found them at Goodwill and wanted to look good for a job interview. Well I just had to go check it out myself! Just look at the cute orange blouse from Sag Harbor that I found! And I really like the black tank with rhinestones. The dark brown purse is great. I have one almost exactly like it in tan. I swear this one has never been used. It looks like a brand new purse for only $5! Everyone says that the one I have looks like a Coach purse. Ha, I can't spend that much on a purse! I hope this one fools people too.

Here is a placemat I found for the table on my deck. I thought it fit in really well with my decor. It was just a dollar.

I love this little Winnie the Pooh figurine! My daughter is trying to get pregnant and has decided that when she does, she is doing the nursery in Pooh. I'm sure any baby is going to have poo of its own to add! This is going to be my way of letting her know I am pulling for her.

Grand total for my Goodwill shopping spree was only $17. Can't beat that! I found some other bargains, but you are going to have to wait until June 5 and see what I got for the porch! Check out my next posting on the Porch Party!

Irises have bloomed in the garden next to my deck. Aren't they gorgeous?

These pretty purple flowers are blooming just on the edge of the riverbank.

Have a great day everyone! Hope its as beautiful where you are as it is here.
