Goodwill Goodies

I haven't posted any Goodwill Goodies for may be thinking I haven't been there....well...I have...I just have been a poor blogger lately.  I usually stop in once a week, but I don't go unless I have an hour to spare.
Yesterday was a fun stop.
First I found two HUGE cones full of yarn.  They were both made in Canada.  The thicker yarn is 60% cotton and 40% wool.  The thinner yarn has 60% cotton, 35% wool and 5% acrylic ....but still has a really nice feel to it.
I was thinking they would both be really nice for knitting if I could just perfect my sock knitting skills.
Oh yes...I paid $2.99 for each one.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted this sweet planter sitting among the wicker baskets on the very top shelf....

It is in totally mint condition.....I am so excited to put it in my sewing room.
Someone obviously didn't look at the bottom before pricing it.....

My mother is always telling me to keep and eye out for yarn....she would be envious. ;D
