So tacky and I'm LOVING them!!

On Saturday, the girls and I made a donation run to our local Goodwill. Always on the hunt for a few vintage holiday items, we perused a few aisles of the store. These two illuminated pilgrim figurines came home with me.

The sales woman told me that just a few minutes earlier, the illuminated turkey was sold. I swear I would have bought him too!! My front porch was looking a little bare after our Halloween "thunder" was put away.

I also have plans for my "special sunroom" tree too. It's getting a Thanksgiving makeover. It won't be as elaborate as my Halloween tree, but just you wait!

Josie's face is so sweet in the collage at the top of your blog. She knows how to work the camera...what a cutie. Sherry

I don't think that they look tacky at all! So maybe in the store they look a little odd, but they look adorable on your porch!

You are an expert at your fabulous finds~the Pilgrim pair are cute!
Laying low here with a cold. Hubby leaves midweek so I will be free to do whatever. Looking forward to shopping without deadlines!
Have a great week!

Hey Kim,
I really like the new header...The pics of the girls are great! (But, of course they are always great!)

Love your finds and creations. . .and Mr. and Mrs. Pilgram aren't tacky at all! They are a great addition to your porch decor. When I find second-hand treasures, I always wonder about their previous owner. Do you think about that, too?

Have a great week!

NOTHING from Goodwill is tacky! They're 'unique' finds :)
I swear I go to Goodwill at least 3 times a week. Always treasures to be found.
Can't wait to see your Thanksgiving tree!

I have the same ones! I love them too! These are collectibles and are very rare blow mold finds! They are not made anymore.
