Kelli, over at "There is no Place like Home" is hosting Show and Tell Friday today. Be sure to visit her blog for a list of all the participants. You just never know what you might find!
I love a bargain! I can't resist a bargain! This is why I rarely go shopping anymore due to my lack of willpower. I can just imagine how lovely each item would be and where it would go. Why then, would I want to leave that pretty little thing at the store?
Well, after showing remarkable restraint through Dec., I went shopping last weekend. I found some lovely treasures at dirt cheap prices. Yes, I said DIRT CHEAP!
Here's some of my bargains:
At Hobby Lobby, Christmas was 80% off. I bought these two tan colored Santa's to go in my guest room. I love how detailed they are even on the back.
I purchased several other things I didn't unwrap like frosted snow people in lavender and pink (lovely) and 5 packages of crystal icicles.
Also, I bought the cutest glass jar with a lid that has "LOVE" etched on it. I'll use it for a variety of things. Today, I put a votive inside and added red hots around it.
The red bowls in the above picture are from Wal-Mart - on sale for $4.50!
Next stop...Michael's. Besides all the flowers I bought, I found these cute little amber etched votive cups. They work just great on my living room mantle.
Last stop was Penney's where I found my best bargain. I have been wanting the flameless candles for the table in my foyer. What I had found was just too expensive. Well...I found them! They had been $100 originally and were marked down to 27.90. I had to have them! Along with them, I picked up the two mercury glass votives. I just love the scroll design.
NOW, here's the good news. When I went to pay, the flameless candles were only $17.00. Woohoo!
