Pink Saturday/ Some Goodwill Finds

For this week's Pink Saturday, I thought I'd show a couple pinky type things I found at Goodwill this summer. I love this little hook with the pink flower which I found for $3. It is perfect in my bedroom though I haven't hung it up on the wall yet. Not sure what I'll hang from it.


I also found this pretty shabby chic letter holder for only 75 cents. I know those are grapes and you would think they should be purple, but they look pink to me! My intent is to put this in my living room.




To check out other bloggers' Pink Saturday posts, visit our hostess Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

A couple months back I posted about a pretty teapot that I had found in a thrift shop for only $8. It was, however, missing the lid. Thanks to help from friendly bloggers, I found out that the teapot was from Lefton china in the Heritage brown floral pattern. Not only that, a lid could be found at www.replacements.com! I was shocked to learn that even without the lid, my teapot, which is actually called a coffeepot, was worth around $79! I sure got my money's worth! With a lid, it was worth as much as $115. So of course, I ordered the lid! It increased in value by more than what I paid for the lid alone.

I was sure excited to see my coffeepot looking whole with it's beautiful lid!

Have a happy Pink Saturday! We are supposed to have a very snowy Saturday with up to 10" of snow on the ground.

Hi, Kady. Your coffeepot is gorgeous. What a wonderful find. How nice to have the lid to complete it.

Don't you wonder why coffee pots and teapots are different shapes? They both hold hot liquid - I wonder why?

You probably never would have found the lid if you had not posted your teapot on your blog. Isn't that amazing that someone was able to help you find a lid. I think that is so cool! Happy Belated Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday, Kady. As you can see, I am so late getting around, but I am still trying.

I am so excited that you got a lid for your coffee pot. It is exquisite.
