Fall in the Diningroom - Giveaway Reminder

I am always amazed that you can find some neat Fall items at GW when it is at the height of the season.  I found a couple of treasures that will be so fun to work with for years.

I found a pretty ceramic pumpkin with wire leaves and stem.  It is about 5 inches across.  The color is a really soft greenish/blue color.  Really pretty..

Not bad and it was Senior Day, so 25 % off.  Yip-Skip

Another cute ceramic gourd.

Had to have it for this price less the 25%.

Then I spied this wonderful cornacopia full of wonderful foliage, gourds and pumpkins.

It is really full with such pretty things.  $5.99 less the 25%.

This piece is really large, it measures over 2 ft. to the tip.

A great size for the dining room table.

A pair of tall candlesticks, more flowers and pumpkins and the table has a totally new look.

  4. Now you know I'm loving the Goodwill stuff!!! Nice finds!

  5. You found GREAT things! My GW never has such nice seasonal items! Loved your "yip skip!". :)

  6. You got some great goodies. The only thing they have at our GW are uky clothes and old tupperware-type plastic containers.

  8. all your new found treasures! it looks FABULOUS!
    now, i've got to get GW in the morning!! :)

  9. Marty,
    You bargain hunter, you! Great finds! Adore the cornucopia! Lovely Fall vignette!

  10. I found the local GW by accident today, Marty! I was looking for the library and found the GW instead! Ha! So much for GPS. I love your cornucopia. I made one many years ago and I'm sure its still in a box somewhere. I loved bringing it out every year to put on my dining room table.

  11. Those are beautiful finds from Goodwill. It's interesting to me that your store has a senior discount. None of the ones I've been to in VA have that.

  12. You find the best things at your Goodwill! Your new fall tablescape looks great.

  13. Wow, you did good. Love how you displayed it too.
    Have a lovely day.

  14. Marty,

    You really racked up this time!!! Everything is really nice and looks great on your table! Love your candlesticks and the runner too.


  15. Love your seasonal and festive GW finds!

  16. What great finds at awesome prices! Good job, Marty!

    I can tell from the tags that you have an up to date Goodwill. All of ours still have the little colored stickers and definitely no bar codes!!

  17. You hit the jackpot Marty!! Cute pumpkins and that cornacoppia is beautiful! Martina

  18. Great finds. Where do you keep all your decor when its not out?

  19. I think that there must be a conspiracy going on some place...our GW never has anything that neat. You found some wonderful treasures...the pumpkin is pretty incredible. Thank you for sharing your lovely tablescape. Cherry Kay

  20. You got some great fall finds. I agree it is funny they are at a thrift store now - you would expect them to appear when people declutter after the season. I wonder if the thrift store hangs on to them until the right season.

  21. Hi Marty! What great finds you have from the GW!! The cornucopia is AWESOME! It really sets the tone for the whole table. Don't you just love great finds like that?

  22. Your table looks lovely! I love the checkered runner. You always find the nicest things at Goodwill.

  23. Marty, I'm beginning to be envious of all those cute things you get at such fabulous prices. I really am happy for you but I want some cute great buys, too! Hehe. Your table looks very pretty.----------Shannon

  24. Marty, great Autumn finds, you just never know what you will come across!!

    Oh I have a Designer Pillows Giveaway! I hope you will join! ( a great resource as well)

    Then please keep me in your prayers as I have a hip replacement surgery next week.

  25. Your new centerpiece looks so pretty with that cute checked runner. You found some great stuff!

  26. Okay ... I'm so glad that you took pictures of these items with the GW price tags on them because I wasn't sure if I was going to believe you otherwise! LOL. You truly do have the best GW there is ... period! You always come home with such treasures. Your vignette is gorgeous, full of Fall beauty !!

  27. You found some great stuff...I love Goodwill, just wish their prices weren't so crazy expensive...well the one here anyway. :)
    Oh, glad you liked my chairs I re-did..I just LOVE them! I found some that were similar, but the fabric wasn't as pretty, and they were $600 EACH! Youzer...mine were less than $400 for all four, and for me, that was pricey! :)

  28. Love your fall display...also saw your pics of your trip to HA...lucky lovely - it's on my list of places I want to go someday!

  29. Your cornicopia is lovely. We bought two at garage sales this past weekend. Your table looks wouldn't dare NOT! :):)

  30. Hi Marty, What awesome finds from your "GW", they look perfect on your table. I wanted to stop at GW the other day but I was short on time, sigh...

  31. Marty,

    You found such lovely autumn treasures! I love visiting my GW too. :)

  32. Marty, such great finds at GW. I don't have one of those close to me. Enjoyed seeing your fall decor.

  33. I really enjoyed your blog. I am fairly new to the blogging world and am always learning. My youngest child will be going off to college next year and so I am entering a new phase in my life. I look forward to learning from you and other bloggers.
    Thanks, Pam @ #healthilyeverafter

  34. Marty your table looks great! You gotta love Goodwill!

  35. Marty, you are the Goodwill queen! I love all of your finds from there, really awesome treasures. I love your table runner too!


  36. Love the cornucopia, that was a great find! I'll be there for the Fall Cloche party:)

  37. Marty, your Autumn centerpiece looks so pretty! It is the perfect Fall look for your table. And I am always amazed when I find cute seasonal items at the thrift store during the actual season. Those little pumpkins are so cute! Thank you for being part of TTF and have a wonderful weekend!
