Some Great Finds This Week...
I was in desperate need of a second trivet to keep next to my stove. The first one I purchased came from a specialty kitchen store and cost a whole bunch of money. I seem to recall having to come home and put a cold cloth on my forehead after that purchase.
When I was at Ross a few weeks ago I noticed they had some trivets so I headed over to see if they had any left. I couldn't resist the pink enamel flower one, even though it was waaaaaay over my comfort zone at $4.99. Did I mention I'm cheap?
I snagged the cute little French style containers a few months ago at Michael's. They had been marked down to the point where they were almost paying the customer to take them home. I think the small one was $1.00 and the large French flower pail was $2.00
Then I had a few (meaning two) things to pick up at the $$ Store. Sixteen dollars later I emerged with mostly necessities - except for the bird picture. It was just too cute to leave behind and it was chirping for a home. It's actually on canvas.
I hung it behind my stove. Anything that can go up with a pushpin is A-ok in my book~~~
But the best find of all was at the thrift store. A whole stack of practically new Elle Decor and House Beautiful magazines. The cost of a few decorating magazines now-a-days would make a good down payment on a house. Total cost? $2.75 + tax. Wowzers!!
I've already started ripping out stuff for my idea files~~~
Before you leave ~~ Susan over at Writing Straight From the Heart, has an excellent post up Home is Where the Heart Is. She is on top of my "must read list" everyday.
Susan would really love to join in some linky parties but she's a bit nervous about the process. I sent her step-by-step instructions, and I know if you took a moment to go over there and encourage her, we'll have her up and running in no time at all.
