More Shopping and Lunch With A Friend

Having lunch with a friend is always special and then shopping is the icing on the cake.  My friend had never been to Hobby Lobby, so of course we had to go.  There isn't one very close to us, but we made the trek.  Great fun and she loved the trip.

After we had lunch, we stopped by Tuesday Morning on the way to HL.  I couldn't resist this cute tin planter for $5.99.  Love the colors and of course it had roosters, so I just had to have it.

Then on to Hobby Lobby.  That took us quite a while.  She couldn't believe there was so much to see.  We went up and down every aisle.  I found a super bargain in the floral section.  I love urns, and really nice ones can be a little expensive.  This one is about 12" tall and is really heavy.  It was only $19.99 and then I discovered a clearance tag on it for $7.50.  Mine for sure.

Love the lions heads on each side with the rings.  It has more of a yellow cast to it than the picture is showing.  Love it.

I love using baby English ivy in arrangements.  They had their stems on sale for 1/2 off, so for .64c each, I bought several.

After we left HL, we stopped in at the Dollar Tree.  She bought a lot of fall decor and I found another picture frame that I liked.  You can't beat them for $1.

Super fun day.  With my granddaughter visiting and then shopping and lunch with a friend, I've had a great week.  Hope all of you had a super week too.  Now I need to catch up with everyone.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I always appreciate your visits.

  5. Hi Marty! Oh, I am sooooo jealous of you folks with a Hobby Lobby! I have been to one but they haven't made their way to the NW yet! We have a Tuesday's and I love going there and finding those deals too. You have some great finds there!

  6. I am another one who is so envious of those with a Hobby Lobby. Such great finds. I am sure you will do amazing things with those. Glad you had a wonderful week.

  7. Hi Marty- love your rooster planter!! So cute and the perfect colors! The lion urn is just beautiful!! We don't have a Hobby Lobby that I know of out here, but sure seems like so many people out there in blogland find some great stuff there! :)

  8. How fun!!! Friends AND family! Doesn't get much better than that!

    LOVE the rooster planter and the URN!!! Awesome finds!!

  9. Hello Marty,

    I love your rooster planter and urn! Sounds like you had a wonderful day! I recently found out a HL will be opening up about 33 miles from me on 11/01/2010! Too bad the opening day is on a Monday!

  10. Sounds like you've had a great week, Marty! Good for you.

    I haven't been to HL in quite awhile. There's one about 45 minutes from me. . . I need to remind myself that 45 minutes really isn't very long and get myself over there! Thanks for the reminder!

    Have a great weekend!

  11. What fun it must have been to see HL through the eyes of someone that hasn't been!

    Love the rooster planter AND that rooster candlestick below!!


  12. I can't think of a better way to spend the day. I love your urn and rooster tin!

  13. Oh Marty!! How are you doing?? The tin planter is the cutest ever!!

    Hope you have a fab weekend!

  14. Marty,

    You've really had a great week. I love shopping with my best friend. She's as thrifty as I and has always loved antiques. She has some beautiful things. We always have a great time together.

    I really like your things from this shopping trip. What a great price on the urn. Love it!

    Have a great weekend!

  15. Marty, you've gone to my two favorite places!!! And what great finds and bargains.
    Have a great weekend.

  16. More wonderful finds as usual. Hobby Lobby probably blew her away for her first visit. Love the rooster tin you found at Tuesday morning. My Tuesday Morning and Hobby Lobby and flea market are all in the same shopping center and too close to home.

  17. I love urns too! I so wish we had a Hobby Lobby close by. The closest one to me is about 4 hours away. Someone please send one my way.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  18. Love the urn! So stately. Wish I had a Hobby Lobby but I frankly don't need another temptation.

  19. love those! hmmm Hobby Lobby trip? I think so!

  20. Hey Marty!

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog today. As for blogger, the problem today is when I get to my dashboard, all the recent posts have huge pics so it's hard to see what the post is...I thought it was something new blogger was doing. I hope your problem gets fixed soon.

    What a buy on that urn! I can just imagine all the ways you can use it around the house.


  21. That is a nice looking frame from the dollar store. I really like your new tin planter and urn. I am sure you are going to use them to create some wonderful displays. I went to Ross today and saw those cute little rooster candlesticks like you got but I ended up not getting them because I found a beautiful glass pumpkin instead. Sounds like you had a great day out today. I always love going shopping with a friend. Have a great weekend!

  22. You found some great buys there. I'm especially loving that urn! Beautiful.

  23. Gotta love HL! :D Really like that urn. It is a rare time that I play full price for something there. Sounds like a fun week.
    Enjoy your weekend.
