"Goodwill Hunting-Vancouver Style Day 3"

     Returning back to a local Goodwill store on Friday, looking for more ironstone and picture frames to repurpose into chalkboards, what I found instead was these glorious professionally upholstered pillows. I usually buy all my pillows from Pottery Barn because you can change out pillows (seasonally or new color scheme) just by buying the pillow top after you have made the initial investment of the down pillow.

     The fabric print immediately reminded me of a pillow I purchased and post "Santa Barbara-America's French Rivera" and I will infuse it with these pillows. Ending my search I found a Homer Laughlin platter and brown/white transferware salt and pepper shakers.

     I would call it another successful day of thrifting and I hope your return each day to see what treasures I might find. Well I better hurry now because I'm off to Battleground, Washington for The Barn House Boys "5th Annual Vintage & Antique Marketplace"event.

     Wish me luck and immediately after the event we are heading to Port Angeles for more shopping and visiting family.

     Until next time....The Blue Farmhouse.

Total of 4 pillows (2 throw & 2 bolsters)
