Let's Go Virtual Shopping

Come along with me today as we go on a virtual shopping trip.  If you have followed my blog, you know that I absolutely love the Fall season and one of my favorite holidays is Halloween.  In shopping this weekend, I found lots of Halloween and Fall goodies at Home Goods. 

When I entered the store, I immediately saw the shelves of orange and black and knew that I was in trouble.  I squared my shoulders and stuck my willpower out in front...and did not grab a shopping cart.  I reasonsed that without a cart, I could only buy what I could comfortably carry.  It actually worked, although I did buy a set of Halloween plates...there are four differant patterns.  An owl, a cat, a bat and a pumpkin.  Love these.

Here is all the wonderfulness that matches the plates I bought....I'm sure I'll be 'adopting' more into the family.

I love this punch bowl but I didn't buy it.  When I drop by this weekend, if the punch bowl is still available, I'll have to consider that fate is at work and purchase it as a 'meant to be' item.  Doesn't that make some kind of weird sense?

Be still my heart.

Love these canisters...look at the bat on top of the one in the back.  Cute!

More dreadful goodness...

Hope you enjoyed your shopping, let's go have lunch.

All The Best,
Pin It!

Whoa, that's a lot of good stuff! Love the canisters and the punch bowl! I have only been in HomeGoods once because there isn't one close to me:(

Enjoy your day and I am ready for lunch:)

Oh wow...You know, I keep trying to not be in the mood for Fall..but it's not working! It's a good thing stores like this are a good 2 hours from me or I would be broke! ;D

What's really scary, Anita, is that they probably have the racks and shelves up for Christmas ornaments and stuff right behind!

See, now, because my birthday is Halloween I'd feel obligated to buy some of this stuff. I love those dishes that you got. Great idea to get one of each design ~ mix it up a bit in a tablescape.

Wow, that is a lot of Halloween stuff. I haven't been in a couple of weeks. I will have to check it out. I don't usually decorate for Halloween. No kids here anymore. I do some fall stuff though.

Oh my gosh. We don't have a HomeGoods anywhere near us. When I'm in Florida, I go several times during my stay. I think it is probably a good thing I can't get to one more often...but, it is such a fun store!

I just picked up the Phyllis Hoffman one this week at Sam's. Can't wait for a moment or 2 this weekend to give it a good going over :)
