Goodwill Finds!!!

Okay, so I came home from the Goodwill today and told my DH that I'd found a bunch of cool stuff to re-purpose. And you know what he said to me?! "Oh, is THAT the politically correct way to say recycle now?" Why, YES, it is, DH! ;) So, I thought I'd just show you my finds. I'll be posting projects I re-purpose from these items later on...

Here is the first group of finds--not really re-purpose-ful, but good deals anyway.~

My favorite painting is Starry Night, so this $5 canvas of part of it was too hard to pass up.~

I've been really stressed lately, so I got this book to give me some ideas on how to focus. $0.99!~

These are prints of a young Jesus being taught by his parents by Simon Dewey were a steal at $1.49 each, and they'll look fabulous re-framed and in my nursery.~

Here's the second group--ready for repurposing!~

Three different beaded projects that will be dismantled and remade into heaven know what at the moment. $2.50 for all of them~

I fell in love with this print because it looks like something out of Jane Austen's life. I've been wanting to do a Jane Austen journal for a while, and once I get PTI's Simply Jane set, I'll be ready! The print will be the cover and the frame re-purposed somehow. $2.99~

So, I got out of there with all this plus a new shirt (literally--brand new!) and a few more books for only $25!!! What have YOU found today that can be repurposed?! Happy crafting! :)
