My Shopping Craze

Hey guys!! This past week I did some shopping. I got some new home decor items. Ross has become my new best friend. I am finding so many good things there for great prices! Here are some pics of what I got. 
I got these two rugs from Ross. The top one I put in the kitchen it fits the length in front of my sink and dishwasher. I love that! The bottom one I put in the front living room in front of the door. I love it. Both of these were only 14.99 not too shabby.



On Saturday, I went to Kirkland's and loved these canisters. I have been looking for some new ones for awhile.


I found this container at Tuesday Morning, I was admiring Liz's and was so excited when I found the same one just a different color. I love it!!



I moved the initial frame I made down to the table below. I think it looks better there.


I wanted to go for more of a formal look out here, so I moved my dining room centerpiece to this table and added these two lamps I had on the sides. I also put the runner from the table on here too. I am going to be making a centerpiece for my table very soon!




I love these cord covers from Hobby Lobby. I think they look better than looking at a cord. 


Lastly, I found this big fleur de lis at Ross it was 10 dollars so I couldn't pass it up! It's actually a candle holder. I haven't figured out where I want to put it yet.


Well, that's it for today guys! I hope you enjoyed my new finds. Now I need to go work on that baby shower stuff. I will share some pictures with you once I am all finished. 

You still have time to enter my giveaway if you haven't already. It ends Thursday!

I will be joining Marty for Tabletop Tuesday's

Have a great day!!

I saw that zebra rug last week at Ross and wanted to buy it but my cart was filled to the rim....hmmm, maybe later this week I'll run over and buy it! You found some wonderful items. I love those canisters, too! I've had my eye on those for awhile now. I love your table vignette and the way you have everything arranged on the wall...BEAUTIFUL!!! The Fleur de Les is lovely, too!

Hi there! I am a new follower to your blog. I love all your new finds. Especially that pretty container that you and Liz have. I was just in Tuesday Morning and didn't see anything at all like those. I wish I had..I would have one as well! ha Love the zebra rug, too. Cute. The canisters are really nice. All of your new decorative items are very pretty. I look forward to reading more of your blog.

Gosh, how I wish those stores were near me..but they are not. Such cute things. I guess garage sales are my best bet for something cute and inexpensive.
You really did find some darling things...
