Goodwill comes through - again.

Did you read this post?

If you did, then you know I've been on the lookout for a kangaroo. (If you didn't read the post before or check out the link, I bet you're really curious now, aren't you?)

Saturday, hubby and I went to several yard sales, but there weren't any kangaroos to be found.

Before we went home, he suggested we stop at a few Goodwill stores. The first one is 2 miles from my house. Guess what we found?


Isn't she cute? And can you believe we (hubby) found her so close to home? Now I'm the one who always says that I can find anything at Goodwill, but even I was feeling doubtful about this pursuit.

See that pretty pink butterfly?


Guess what happens when you pull it?


Isn't that just the cutest thing?

The price was right, too. Just $1.95 ~ not a bad price to make my dad happy.
