12 Days of Goodwill Christmas – Finding the perfect outfit for family pictures

My son turned one in October and I wanted to get family pictures to celebrate his birthday, and also use the pictures for our holiday cards.  I had been searching stores like Target and Kohl’s for the perfect outfit, but just couldn’t come up with anything.  Then one day I was in the 72nd and Ames Goodwill when I came across a plaid vest.  It was so cute – black and red checkers with a tan collar.  The vest was only 99 cents.  Once I saw it, I knew this was the outfit for family pictures!  I paired the vest with a white onzie and jeans.

It doesn’t take a lot to find inspiration for outfits . . . sometimes all it take is one small item to tie the whole look together!

12 Days of Goodwill Christmas – Trash to Treasure

A few months back Brett Karnes, Goodwill’s facilities manager, was walking through the WearHouse at 72nd and F Street.  As he was heading to the back, another employee was wheeling a piano into the back.  It had been on the retail floor for two weeks with no takers.  Brett looked at it and was surprised to find it was a player piano.  There was one hitch – it didn’t work.  That didn’t stop Brett and he bought the piano for $50.

In doing research, he found out it was a 1929 Wurlitzer player piano.  The varnish was cracked, so Brett stripped the piano and refinished it.  The harder part was going to be fixing the inside.  Brett found an older gentleman in Lincoln who gave him a users manuals and some tips on how to re-key and fix the piano.

Brett’s hard work paid off and he now has a beautiful player piano that he can treasure for years to come.

12 Days of Goodwill Christmas – Decorating your home for Christmas with vintage finds

The Christmas holiday is my favorite.  I love decorating my home with family heirlooms and thrift store finds for a very vintage feel.

One of my favorite things to decorate with are vintage Christmas bulbs.  I have some from my grandmother, but many I got at Goodwill and other thrift stores.  I use the bulbs in table center pieces as well as other room decor.

I even use them to decorate a vintage candle holder I bought at a thrift store and spray painted to match my decor.

For me, there is no better decoration than a beautiful tree.  Most of the vintage bulbs on our tree were bought second-hand.  I am obsessed with how whimsical and unique each one is.
