My $4.00 wreaths....

...yes, you read that right. About three months ago - I happened to be shopping at a Goodwill and I was lucky enough to find 3 pre-lit wreaths for $4.00 each. They actually still had the "new" tags on them for $69.99. So out of a possible $210.00 - I spent a whole $12.00 - I LOVE GOODWILL!!!
Now, they are nothing too fancy - I jus' put on a lil' ribbon, some berries and ornaments and they add a lot of life to the walls. Next year when I have more time (that never happens) I'll do a lil' better with them - But for now, I'll just enjoy my bargains.

In the den...

Over the bed...
You all have a wonderful day!

Oh my gosh Cathy, that is great. They are beautiful. I'm sure you added your touch to them. Love the one over the bed, never thought of that. I went to Goodwill last week and found a couple of little things, but I never find anything that good.

Cathy said...

Oh Cathy!
Those are so cute! You did a great job jazzing them up! I had to giggle because I was remembering when I bought some pre-lit wreaths and hung them outside in our Kansas winter and by morning they weren't working anymore. Too cold! I love all of your embellishments on them! They a fabulous! Even better that you got such a great deal, what a find!

Smiles, Nancy
