Frugal Fleurs

I spent some time with my daughter Wednesday evening at a gluten free cooking demonstration at a bookstore that, happily, was a few doors away from our local Joann's. Without a list and measurement of things, I was really unprepared for a trip into Joann's, but {sigh} I forced myself.

They really had some lovely Christmas decorations out ~ really large ornaments, large pair of bells, bows and more. A bit rich for my blood at $25.00 and up, but it did lead me to a clearance shelf where I found this:





My daughter was quick to point them out to me because she knows I love them. They only had the two and I grabbed one ~ and took about 10 seconds to consider if I should just get both of them. Yeah. I did. I couldn't just leave one behind ~ what if no one bought it.







On clearance at $5.97 each, originally $19.99 each. A real steal as far as I'm concerned! These will be making their way into my living room refresher.

Hooking this find up with Frugalicious Fridays at Finding Fabulous.



This week's giveaway will end at midnight, so make sure you enter!

Oh, I'd like a pair please. They will look great with the colors you are bringing into your living room. If they were mine I'd be tempted to give them the rub n' buff treatment! Janell
