Tuesday's Treasures....with a safety Tip...

I know I have been trying to limit what I bring in the house, and I have been getting better, but sometimes Goodwill just has too many things that I love! I took one(and only one) trip to GW last week... I found 4 panels of these Lover's Knot coverlet curtains!! I have these same ones in my half bath(but in black and mustard). Now I just need to figure out where they can go, or if they will be turned into something else.
And this double tier vintage sheer curtain is going to be cut in half(to make two curtains) and will be going in the master bedroom of the camper.
And then I found glassware, for my kitchen and the camper!! Most of it was half off :)
And now for the safety tip.... I'm sure you all have heard that you should where gloves when you are chopping jalapeno peppers, and let me tell you, YOU REALLY SHOULD!!! I was making zucchini relish this weekend and decided to make the second batch spicy for my hubby. I chopped up 4 jalapeno peppers without much thought and started cooking the relish. Within minutes I noticed that the tips of my thumbs were hurting but I didn't realize what from. My finger tips starting hurting a bit too, but not as much as my thumbs. I washed my hands several times, but by then they were burning! I finally figured it out that it was the peppers! I tried milk and rubbing alcohol, but it was all too late, at this point, it had turned into a slight chemical burn. This lasted an entire day, everytime I would put any pressure on my thumbs or get them wet they would burn. Luckily it went away and healed overnight, but the pain of that day is a huge reminder to me that I must wear gloves when chopping hot peppers!!!! Learn from my mistake.

Have a great day,



  1. You poor thing! Is that what they mean by "too hot to handle"? I love your finds. I can just picture some of them in the camper which will be right nice by the time you're done with it!

  2. Wow, I never come across an awesome find like that! I'm jealous!

  3. You lucky duck! Finding those curtains! I am sorry you got burned by the peppers. Thanks for sharing your tip with the gloves.
    Have a good night.

  4. Tiff,
    You always have the best luck at GW.
    Lucky lady!!
    Love those coverlet curtains.

  5. What great finds - I wanna go to your goodwill - ours never have anything cool! Oh I feel your pain about the peppers - ONE TIME - many years ago - I was making something with the jalapeno's and chopping them - later that night I took my contacts out of my eyes! Can you say painful! I learned my lesson - We are growing them and just picked some Sunday from the garden for our fajitas for dinner - needless to say i took my contacts out first to be on the safe side just in case!

  6. Those curtains are awesome! They never have anything like that at our Goodwill! :) Bet they will be lovely no matter what you do with them Tiff :)
