Thrifting Goodies & A Question

Monday is half off day at the Goodwill stores in my area.  Here a couple of things I snagged this week.

This little guy has been hanging around at one store for a few months.  I got him for $1.25.  I'm planning to paint the frame cream and distress the edges.  I'll probably hang it on the door around Memorial Day and July 4th.

I got these for my Milk Glass collection.  They were 50 cents each!  I only get my Milk Glass at Goodwill so it's usually a vase that I end up with.  I was super excited to find these.

I didn't get this beauty on Monday so she wasn't half price, but $3 still isn't bad.  I'm still trying to decide if I want to paint her or not.  Any suggestions?

I got some steals on a few larger items too, but I'm saving those for makeover posts.

My question is, if you've been inspired (project-related) by someone's blog, but you can't remember what blog you got your idea from, how do you handle that?  Do you just put up a shout-out to see if someone else knows, and then link to the person's blog if you find out who they are?

Thanks for any responses!

  1. Love that little box. What about a little rub n buff just to bring out the details? I have had that problem in the past and used to save those posts to my Favorites. Now I print them out! Made a binder and everything for it. This way I have the link to the blog and the post I was inspired by. I actually did a post on it! : ) Otherwise, yes, I would mention you were inspired by someone's project, put in a shout-out and then edit if you find out who it was.

  2. You make me so jealous! I never spot anything at Goodwill! You must have a great eye! I am visiting from The Girl Creative. Come visit me!

  3. I really dig your milk glass cups! Nice find. And I really dig your style. I think your fine to give a shout out and give credit later.
