Goodwill Hunting...

Today was a great day for thrifting at our local Goodwill store.  My sweet girl and I were actually headed to a different thrift store for some bargain hunting when we spotted a beautiful sign. (Cue the hallelujah chorus...) 50% off Sale at Goodwill.  We immediately pulled into the parking lot with high hopes of a bargain.  I made a beeline for the dishes area and spotted this gorgeous, round copper tray.
It has beautiful patina on it and, at almost 18 inches in diameter, is a great size. I knew it would be perfect for fall decorating.
The other gem I picked up was this adorable Crate and Barrel 3 section serving dish with a little handle.  I made good use of it this evening with a little sweet treat trio from Trader Joe's that my hubby picked up today. In case you're wondering what the goodies are...Chocolate Sunflower Seed Drops, Dark Chocolate Covered Powerberries, and Salt Water Taffy.  I love how the colors all coordinated. 

I came out of Goodwill having spent less than ten dollars and that included a little decorative wire cage that my sweet girl got to keep a couple of her stuffed animals in. So, now I am motivated to start pulling out the fall decorations to incorporate my new copper tray.  I love it when just one little piece can be your inspiration. Sometimes all it takes is a little nudge.  When do you start decorating for fall?

I'm linking up at some of these great parties and
