I just couldn't ignore all those sales as I was finishing up the last of my shopping. Seems like every store has everything marked down to 1/2 off and rows of clearance aisles. Of course I found a few things that I just couldn't resist.
Target usually has something that I can't walk away from. Love these small gold bowls. I can think of a dozen things to use them for - a small candle - tiny floral arrangement - filled with candy on the coffee table - so many uses.
The snowflake inside is pretty all by itself. These are marked down to $1.48.
I am sure you can never have too many trays. I use them all over the house. This is a small one that is just perfect for so many places at 8 x 13 inches. Of couse since it was gold it had to come home with me too. How could you leave this behind for only $4.98.
Steinmart has all of their Christmas and most of the store marked down. I couldn't resist this fun faux fur wine cozy. With New Year's eve right around the corner, this would be a fabulous Hostess gift to hold a bottle of champagne for that big party.
I have been hunting for a bust for a while and everything I find is either really small or way too big, plus some of the price tags are way out of my budget too. Ross usually comes to the rescue sooner or later.
I found this one on their clearance rack for $5.95. It is about 12 inches tall, so the perfect size - however, it is a really ugly sort of beige/brown clay color. There is also a gouge right above the eye.
Nothing at all a little spray paint won't fix. So much better in white don't you think? (You know me, I almost painted it gold.)
I am already thinking about decorating when all the Christmas comes down. Ready for a fresh clean house for the New Year.
How about you, do you leave yours up or do you take it down right away too?
Be sure to get all of your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday. Party goes live this afternoon at 3 PM CMT. Can't wait to see you there.
I am joining the following parties:
