finding stuff for my Garden art projects
Thursday, October 07, 2010
Another beautiful day here on the east coast. I'd rate it a "10". So, in my on-going quest for pottery, plates, bowls, glassware, figurines etc. for my craft called "Garden Art" I took a trip to my local Salvation Army. I hadn't been there is years & thought it would be the usual ares of semi-clutter. I wasn't sure they would even have a china section but to my surprise I found a lovely well organized beautifully displayed area. There was a gorgeous end display of red glassware with stemware, plates, bowls & vases all artfully displayed with several stems of flowers & a lovely silk-like scarf. There were equally lovely displays in blues, yellows, greens & clear crystal & a striking display of black glassware & dishes also with vases & figurines. For a moment I thought I was at Neiman Marcus. I bought a few more items for my craft project & had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Take a few minutes or hours & go to your local Salvation Army. You'll have just as much fun as I did while helping a good cause.

Just to let you know what "garden art" I was refering to in my blog. The "insects" are beach stones I painted to look like insects...some real, some imagined....some fun! The bird house was a gift from my grandson & his wife. The plate was 99¢ & the blue galss bowl was $1.99 boith from Savers thrift shop.
I love the Salvation Army!

I always donate things there. When I was there the last time, after donating I went inside and got a wonderful white wicker chair for $10.00!!!!
Joy Joy Joy!
