What I Bought On My Summer Vacation

Any time I can walk out of Marshalls {or Home Goods, TJ Maxx, Pier 1, Tuesday Morning ~ you get the idea} spending under $50.00 it’s a great shopping day for me.   Today’s trip to Marshalls was just such a morning and the $49.79 spent included a pair of shorts at $16.99!  Here’s what I got:

A few of these items were on clearance {the wire tray and the 1, 2, 3 hooks}.  The leaf bowl was $4.99.  I’m thinking I need a little bit of a change from the floral arrangement I currently have on my kitchen table.  Although, I might wait until September and add some Fall-like things to this bowl.  {Digressing ahead: Dollar Tree already has Fall decor out.  They had some cute little ceramic pumpkins that I made myself put down and walk away from}.

These crown hooks were $5.99 each.  About what I’d expect to pay at Marshalls so no win or loss on those.

I couldn’t pass up this wire tray for $5.00.  I don’t know why I like these.  Even though I have enough trays like this I still look when I see them.  I guess it plays to my liking to have things organized yet in view.

I saw this 1, 2, 3 hook in a sage green {$7.50} and right away thought, “uh-oh, they’re onto us!”.  I’ve seen various numbered items in blogland before I saw them in stores.   I know this has been mentioned before but sometimes you have to wonder where it showed up first ~ the blog or the store!

I could have spent so much more, but I have learned restraint.  They had some great dishware and a wonderful white teapot {it was missing it’s lid though};  frames, florals and even small appliances like a coffee maker.   I have an upcoming chance for you to throw restraint to the wind.  I’ll be hosting a CSN giveaway that I will be announcing shortly, so please make sure to come back and enter.

I love the hooks! I saw the little pumpkins in Dollar Tree too, and didn't have your will power. I got 3 of them.

Ooouu! So many goodies! I really like the black bowl too! I know what you mean about Marshalls and the dishes, I was in there last week and saw a whole new display of several different patterns! Had me going crazy cause I was being a good girl and only shopping for a gift for a friend. Very cute number hooks and wire basket. Must be that office mentality that you have that makes you like these things. LOL! Just kidding!

Nice finds Kathy. The little number hooks are cute. I always wonder that too. Are the stores paying attention to the blogs. Hmmmm. They should.
Speaking of fall... I found a little double leaf sort of candy dish with the 1950's gold glaze highlights. It was $1.00. I was so excited. You know I usually buy furniture.

Great finds! The number hooks are cute. I would like some of those for myself.

This is all fine and dandy Kathy, but they are not quite the pictures I am looking for!
