Anything Gold Always Catches My Eye

You know that I love gold and can see that wonderful glittery color a mile away.  Goodwill has had a ton of brass lately with that wonderful gold luster that just yells my name.

I found some really super treasures this week too.   I thought this was a gorgeous wall sconce too.  Really large and very heavy.  Love, love, love.



 I needed a clock for my desk and of course if it was gold and lucite, then it had to be mine. 

 See how perfect it is on my desk.  So fun, I am really having a ball with this desk makeover and all the new accessories.

 This ships candle holder was a super fun find.  You know about these.  They were originally used on ships.


 See the candle part swivels.  You could sit it on a table and if the ship swayed the candle would swing back and forth and stay perfectly upright.


 See, it swivels this way too.  Plus, see the hook, it could hang on the wall and if the ship rocked, the candle just rocked back and forth but always was straight.  I was so thrilled when I found this.


Goodwill is still one of my favorite shopping places and each of these special treasures were $2.99 with 25% off for Sr. Day.  What kind of a bargain is that!!!

  9. Marty, I have the exact same candle holder! It was the first gift my husband ever gave me, while we were dating! It's at least 28 years old! We have moved so many times that I am not sure where it is now but of course you have me wanting to find it right away! Fun post! Nancy

  15. All your gold accessories look so good on your desk, Marty! You certainly pulled that together very well on a budget. I was hoping to hit Goodwill today, but it is pouring so bad and there are thunder storms off and on that I just went home after work this morning (Goodwill is not far from where I work so I was going to go right from work). I still aim to get there and if not tomorrow then definitely next week. I've got stuff to drop off anyway and now that it is in my car I pretty much have to go! : )

  18. What kind of deal is that? A terrific one ...yes indeed it is, Marty. Now I also have candlestick envy..and well as Autumn in the East envy. The tree's are already starting to change and we are just sittin' here cookin' in California...with a tad of teasing rain to make us all more nuts than we already are!... I need to pay a visit to Goodwill. It's been a long time.
    Hugs!
