Spending the last of my Gift Certificates

For Christmas I got several gift certificates and I still had one that was burning a hole in my pocket, so last week when my daughter and I did some shopping for the bathroom things, I found a few more treasures too.

 I love adding a little black to my decor, and these two pieces will be so fun to play with.  I found both of these at Hobby Lobby.


This swan just made me drool.  Love the crackled finish.  How fun is this going to be to decorate with.  this wonderful guy came from Home Goods.


I have a very large apothecary jar, so I wanted a small one and this is just the perfect sized and shape.  They always have a great selection at TJMaxx and their prices are fabulous.


A couple more things to add to my wardrobe.  I know, more stripes.  I just really like them.  This style is so flattering, love it.  I found both of these at Marshall's.


Nice plain jane white.  I needed a new white tee and this one looks amazing on.


 I love the crochet and a great neckline also.


 Ok, this one doesn't have stripes.  Cute sweetheart neckline and some bling.  This one came from Ross.


 Can you see the shape of the sweetheart v-neckline and see the silver beads.  Fun and so cute.


I havn't had time to play with everything, but I did have to put the cow next to my farmer vignette.  I think he is the perfect addition.

All 7 items for just over $100.  I had fun.  I just need some more gift certificates so I can do this all over again. lol  Just kidding, this was a real treat, I know that I am totally spoiled.

I am joining the following parties:

  23. What great finds Marty!! How fun to get to spend some fun money!! Those blouses are going to be so fun to use putting some new outfits together!

    Bill got me a $50.00 gift certificate to get my nails done back in August for my birthday and I have torn the house apart trying to find it. I am so upset that I have misplaced that certificate! I did this when we were first married too. Had gotten several gift certificates and they never did show up. Oh if I only had a brain!
