It’s Exhausting!

Yep….it’s just exhausting….all of this shopping that I MUST do, just to have something to show all of you every week!  No?  Not going for it huh?  Well…it sounded like a good excuse anyway!

But REALLY, I ask ‘ya….how could I possibly have passed these up?


I found these yummy dishes at T.J. Maxx.  That place is one of my greatest weaknesses!  Salad plates $2.99 each, dinner plates, $3.99 each.  They’re kind of a smoky black with a cream background.  A wonderful neutral color that I can see used in so many different ways.  With red for Christmas, burnt orange for autumn or Thanksgiving, hot pink or lime green for Spring or Easter.   I think that they would also be wonderful with neutrals. 


I threw these ribbons in with them and they look lovely with neutrals and taupe's.


I found some inexpensive little goodies at the Rink this week.  My other weakness!


These sweet little vintage dolls.


They have found their way into this Vignette (for now.)

This cute little leather first aid “zip kit.”  I’m not sure what I’ll do with it, maybe put buttons in it?

These spools…..$2.50 each!  Perfect for keeping lace organized.

A fun and decorative way to keep supplies organized.  Sort them into colors, this has really helped me.

Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. find the most wonderful and lovely things. I especially love the plates. I have an obsession with dessert plates (I don't dare tell you how many I have!)


  2. Love those plates!!! I'll have to check out my local TJ Maxx! You have such a gift at making vignettes around your home...including the apothecary jars. I'd love to see a post just on those. I absolutely love your decorating style!!

  9. Oh my goodness, you like vintage dollies too! I should have known! I like the cast off broken and cracked "parts" even better than the whole dollies sometimes!
