A Few Things That Make Me Happy

Since the direction of my blog is changing as I embark on a journey to decorate this old house (on a very tight budget!) , I thought I would share with you some of my favorite finds.

This sweet little painting was 49 cents at Goodwill. When I find pretty little handmade items I feel I must rescue them. The purses were 2.50 each.

I found this pretty Stiffel lamp at Good Will for 7.99. The Fenton Bowl was 5.95 and the little basket was 4.95. Perfect for my blue and white bedroom.

My kitchen farm sink. I love it so much! I almost don't even mind washing dishes now!

This fun teapot. 2.95 at my favorite thrift store.

Pyrex Bowls. I have my Grandma's original set of 4 and others I have added. I use them every day.

This needle point calendar was only 3.99 at Good Will. So much work went into it, and it is so pretty, I had to rescue it too. It hangs in my kitchen now.

Milk Glass collection. It got a little out of control so now I don't even buy it when I see it, unless it's blue! (This is only a corner of it. The top of this hutch is full of it!

I love, love, love nesting dolls!

Alot. Most are on the book shelf in my daughter's room, but these are the ones I kept for my office.
So, what are some of the things that you have found that make you smile? Link me up!
