Christmas Clearance

I usually try to find some bargains right after Christmas.
This year, I didn't get much since we were out of town
 but I did find a few things.

I found this pretty vintage snowman towel at Sur le Table.
~ love the red ball fringe on the bottom ~
If you have one of these stores near you and you haven't been
there, you might want to check it out.
They have so many cute kitchen gadgets, dishes, linens, etc. 
A great place for gifts too.

At my local Meijer store, I bought these two ornaments...
~ she has such a sweet face, I just love her ~
~ this Santa is very regal and I love the soft aqua/blue on him ~
~ that Santa, he has good taste I tell ya ~

Unrelated to Christmas, I found this bottle of cumin at Target.
I just thought the bottle was so charming ~ much better than the containers most spices come in.
They have a large selection of spices and some larger bottles also.

That's it for my bargains.
My kids went back to school today 
so I am in cleanup and organization mode!

~  I hope your day is wonderful ~

    I just love the cumin bottle.
    When you open your christmas boxes next year, you will have the lovely new ornaments.. they are so cute.

  4. I love the dish cloth with the snowman...Don't you just love bargains! Thanks for sharing your great buys!

  5. You found some great bargains. The ornaments look very vintage. And that cumin container is great -- definitely can be reused even once the contents are used up. I use a lot of cumin in my cooking. We go back to school on Sunday. I've enjoyed these past two weeks of winter break. Now it's back to reality. Have a great weekend. Tammy

  6. Love the adorable snowman towel - it's so cute.

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.



Home For The Holidays ~ Entry, Family Room and Kitchen

I have always loved the phrase "Home for the Holidays". Even though we are taking a short trip right before Christmas, we will be back in time to enjoy Christmas at home.

Of course, home can be wherever the people I love will be.
That's the most important thing and the most necessary ingredient.

But I don't mind if it also includes a cute little reindeer.

And a decorated mantel.

A Christmas tree, of course.

Pretty packages.

And a cozy kitchen with little bits of Christmas sprinkled around.

Christmas also includes our cute kitty with visions of sugarplums dancing
in his little head . . . or kitty treats, whichever.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
I know there are so many beautiful homes to visit right now.

Hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright!

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.

I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!

Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!

Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…
