I picked up 20 of these for just $1.99 each. I was supposed to be getting 10 for my friend, but I got carried away and bought 20. After I re-read her text requesting 10, I figured I would keep the extras.
Like I needed more wine glasses. Oh well, I ended up giving my friend 12, I kept 8 and stored them in the pantry. I have some clumsy friends, so they will probably end up coming in handy.
Slowly but surely my daughter's bedroom makeover is coming together. I knew I wanted to hang two frames on either side of her bed and I found these at Ikea for only $10 a piece. I had recently bought some oversized 17"x17" mats at the Pottery Barn outlet and had planned to buy the 18"x18" frames to go with them. The frames sell for $39 each. But when I saw these for just $10, I knew they would do the trick, and for a fraction of the cost of the Pottery Barn frames. I had already covered the 17"x17" mats in a graphic blue fabric so I simply cut them down to fit the new frames. Still not quite sure what to put in the frames, but at least I've made some headway.
I also picked up this cute little tray for $5.99. Since I am adding blue to my daughter's revamped room, I thought I would bring a little blue into her bathroom as well.
The other non picture worthy items I came home with were two 26"x26" pillows to cover for my
daughter's bed and a some plain old glasses for our kitchen. My glasses seem to be disappearing.
All in all, it was a productive trip and the best part was that the kids loved the childcare. They are dying to go back. Me, not so much.
