Friday's Find: Goodwill Pumpkins & Dollar Store Embellishments!

Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! It makes my day when I find seasonal decor while thrifting.  Even better is a thrifty upcycle via the dollar store...

My little town has a new Goodwill store--woo hoo! It's been open for about a month and I try to go once a week.  It's really nice and I almost always find something in the home section.  This time, I found pumpkins! Now the first one might as well have had my name on it, with the gorgeous color and the glittered stem :) Plus, they were comparable in size and stacked together nicely.

Lately, my local Dollar Tree has started carrying really fabulous stickers--like the ones that are too expensive at my favorite craft stores--fabulous.  I've learned from experience that they go fast though, so when I see them I stock up.  Such was the case with these pretty lace and pearl varieties; I didn't have a specific project in mind when I bought them, but knew I would use them...

...Enter the Goodwill pumpkins! Who says gourds can't be glamorous?!

It can still be purchased directly from my blog and the link is available in the right corner.  This is my first experience with Selz, and though it has received really good reviews, please email me if you have had any issues with it.  I welcome and appreciate your feedback!
