I love supporting the GW cause

Here are my Incredible finds from GW
~~brought to you by Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday~ the letter I~~
Here are a few of my GW finds over three trips recently. I hit the motherload!! Here's what I procured (in the name of prIm crafting)~~
  • dove tail oak recipe box
  • dark stained wood & bamboo japanese tea pot (this is my most special find) it even has japanese writing carved on the side. I have never seen anything like this before!! The top even comes off
  • handcrafted pottery jar
  • 3 candle holders (brass & pewter)
  • wooden wagon (for annies or whatnot)
  • oak ladder shelf
  • 2 willow baskets
  • 5 bird n nests (new)
  • beaded halloween table runner (to put appliques on)
  • 48 colonial style candles (to grunge and prim with cinnamon, dye, wax and such)~I just about died when I found all of these white many possibilities to use in prim crafting!
  • 3 small and 1 large canning glass jars (for pin keeps)
  • Awesome heavy metal star on a base (this has gorgeous texture and definition)
  • wooden tray (with doved corners)
  • wooden basket with cool curved handle (to paint black and sand up a bit)
  • 8 heavy hand towels-new from Target~the fabric is thick but flexible (deep orange color for fall pumpkins or whatever)
  • wooden heart shelf (to paint black and maybe crackle too)
and so to sum up my recent finds, I would utter these ~I~ words:
  • Incomparable
  • Impressive
  • Illustrious
  • Inspiring
  • Invaluable
It is Incomparable for most to comprehend but a big "Thanks" to all of my new blog friends as I have found another way to support my addiction of prim crafting while contributing to the Invaluable mission of GW.

  7. I don't have a GW in my town, but we have a Deseret Industries and I give my excess when I can...much to the chagrin of my kids who would love to have a garage sale. Great finds! Joni
