Goodwill scores

Stopping by Goodwill last week on a whim, here's what I found:
The jar is destined to hold Gray's marbles as a bookend - for 99 cents, I consider it a bargain!
I think these carved wood thingies are supposed to be trivets.  I'm going to use them as wall plaques.  Don't know yet if I will paint them - it might detract from the detail.  Again, 99 cents each.  
But the thing I was most excited about was:
This lamp! $3!!  The base is beautifully variegated and glazed pottery. 
And with a little green in it, I think it will be perfect for the boy's room. 
A $6 stop-over - not bad!

Great finds!! That lamp is wonderful! :) p.s.-I have to hurry when thrifting to. Mostly because I still carry my daughter in a backpack thing and my back gets tired! Oh, and it's HOT!

Very nice finds. I appreciate the natural colors and variations in wood and try not to paint over things unless I need a very dramatic look, or they are too dinged and scratched to bear.
