My good fortune at my GOODWILL

My cup run'ith over this week with doctors appointments to be ready for next weeks vacation with my surgeon.  (Otherwise known as my surgery).  Today, I thought my appointment was at 9:00 am and when I got there the secretary looked a bit incredulous.  She said, "You are VERY early, are you going to wait? "  Come to find out my appointment wasn't until 10:45.  I did NOT have time to go home and come back so I went to the local Goodwill.

THERE, I found this SUPER sweet needlepoint doggie on a leash. (click on the photo to make it larger!)  That inspired me to make a little doggie wall collage.  You KNOW I love dogs (and birds) so then I was on a quest to find another doggie print.  I KNEW I needed 3.  Then I came across this SWEET little boy with the pup.  I got these little black frames to frame a doggie print I got from BOB at the YE OLE CURIOSITY SHOP.  I haven't decided on which one yet.  Let's see, the needlepoint was 4, the oval doggie print was 2 dollars and the little frames were 2 for 5.  I also picked up this SWEET milk glass bowl for's so purty !  Lastly they had chairs on sale and eventually I want to get all mismatched chairs for my kitchen table and unify themwith the same wooden chair was 2.00!  I SCORED BIG TIME! 

I took off the back of the needlepoint to paint the frame, more on that in another post!  It's drying in the basement and I hope it has a cool finish I can share, If NOT I'll still share it so you don't make the same mistake! LOL
