This a.m. we drove to a neighboring city to see what "stuff" they have there. I swear they have ALL my favorite stores --and a Chili's (does anyone else love Chili's chips and salsa as much as we do?)
Cole's not feeling great today so we didn't stay too long, but I did manage to convince the boys that they should stop into Toys R Us (ok-- so it didn't take much convincing) while I ducked into Jo-Ann Fabrics. We also hit up the Dollar Tree (for some birthday party supplies) and then I took a quick run-thru of the Goodwill store. I <3 that place!
I hit the jackpot!! I'm so glad I made them wait in the car while I quickly perused the "stuff" department at Goodwill. Check these out:
2 apothecary jars + 1 large glass bowl + 1 white ceramic vase = $15!
And the best part about it is that I'm in LOVE with each of them-- not just like -- LOVE! That's when I know I've made a good purchase.
note: the apple in the following photos is for size reference, not necessarily because I love apples :)
We had a beautiful dark wood fruit bowl out for fall/winter. Just putting the fruit in an open and airy glass bowl makes a HUGE difference. It really feels like Spring! $5.
And this adorable ceramic vase. I immediately saw it on my dining room table with tulips in it and I was sold. $3.
I also got this today at Jo-Ann Fabrics (among other things)-- stay tuned to see what it becomes! (FYI-- I don't sew but I'm pretty excited to see how this project turns out)
