Shopping Finds

Is there anything more fun that opening presents?  When I go shopping at my favorite stores and they wrap my purchases willy nilly in bubble wrap and white tissue paper, it makes me smile because I know that when I get home I can unwrap my purchases and discover them all over again. 

I love these dogs.  They are about 15 inches tall and are just too cute.  No idea what I am going to do with them yet, but they will find a home somewhere. 

You have probably heard the saying that something is so ugly it's cute...for this price, that is my sentiment exactly for these two guys.

Getting ready in my mind for picnic season.  Found these cuties marked down.

Lenox napkins for $3.00

White pitcher...can't help myself when I see one of these my heart just sings.  Beautiful white with clean, classic lines.

These beauties were not on sale, but I could not resist either.

Spring table lines

By the time I get home and open my packages, I have forgotten everything that I purchased so it really is like Christmas or my birthday.  Does anyone else enjoy this rediscovery?  Anyone been on a mad shopping spree lately?  What did you find that you couldn't resist?
All The Best,
Pin It!

You got some good finds there, Anita! Love the pitcher! If I make more than one stop, I do enjoy unwrapping everything once I get home and "rediscover" what I purchased.

Great finds, I love shopping their bargain aisles. I even found a real prim table with drawers at one of ours. They are a good place to hit every week, frequent turn around, so lots of bargains.

Anita, you shop where I shop. Isn't it fun? Love your deals, especially the white pitcher, they always do it for me too. I am drawn to them. Thanks for sharing your goodies with us, it's almost as good as doing it myself. Hugs, Marla

Having just had a birthday I just opened up many presents that I didn't even have to purchase! That was fun too!

Oh my, I could have written this post. I recognize several of your TJ finds. I debated on that gorgeous bird cage, but so far have resisted. That store is the best! We recently had one open about 5 mins. from my house....Dangerous?? uh huh!

What great buys - darn it now I HAVE to go to Home Goods to see what my store has.

Anita, I bought that bird cage last week! Don't you just love it? I haven't decorated it yet. I am thinking about it still, but I am sure I will be doing something springy with eggs and nest. I bought dome eggs at TJ Maxx. Looks like you had fun! Joan

One of my favorite parts of coming home with my treasures is opening them back up. Looks like you had a lot of fun on this shopping day.
