This Weeks Treasures & Wrap Up

I took a day last week and went to the mall, had lunch and shopped at all my favorite places.  A great way to spend a really, really hot day.  I found some super treasures too.

I think I hit just about every store in town.  TJMaxx is always a super place to roam up and down every aisle and look at it all.  I know these preserved topiaries have been the rage for a while, but I always found the prices more than I wanted to pay.  I found these on sale $16 for the large one and $12 for the smaller one. Great prices and I can use them almost anywhere.

 On my way to the mall I stopped at Goodwill.  There's usually a treasure or two there.  Today I found this beautiful silver dresser set.  Isn't it stunning.  $5.95.

 A stop at Target always finds a fresh new t-shirt, and the color is so yummy don't you think?  $8.99

 I am not big on the mall, but I really did want to find a new skirt, so a trip to Dillards found this Navy stunner.  On sale of course for $29.99.

 I love that it is a wrap skirt, they are always so comfortable and relaxed.  I can pair this with anything.

The rest of the week was spent on some projects around the house.  I removed the medecine cabinet and patched the hole.  I'll give you a complete tutorial on how to do this.

I worked on a project using this, and I antiqued the mirror in the bathroom.

Tutorial and pictures to follow.

  So, how was your week, did you get a lot done too?

Don't forget, Inspire Me Tuesday will be up later this evening.  Hope to see you there and see what all you have been up to.

  1. Great finds! Yes, it is good to take a day for yourself! Have a good upcoming week!

  2. Wonderful treasures, Marty! I love all of your treasures, but the vanity set is amazing- quite a score!

  3. I saw a similar brush / dresser set in our local thrift store not too long ago....both that one as well as yours remind me of the set on my mom's dresser when I was little :)

  4. Very productive week Marty. Cute skirt and top. I have a jean skirt and a few summer sun dresses.
    Live mostly in capris and shorts.

  5. Hi Marty... love all your new treasures... your dresser set is beautiful and what a fabulous price!... I love to shop TJ's too, also Marshalls and Home Goods... xoxo Julie Marie

  6. You've got some lovely treasures, Marty. Love the topiaries. I have them all over the place here.

  7. Some many good deals you found. I had dresser set like that one that My Mother gave me years ago. I just recently gave it to My Granddaughter.

  8. Great the mirror set, so pretty!

  9. As usual, you found some great things!! Love the mirror set. I got a lot done over the weekend but not much during the week!

  10. It is always nice to take some time to walk around the mall and just enjoy.

  11. I love seeing your projects! You always inspire me. I have a dresser brush and mirror set like the one you found at the Goodwill. It's stored away - maybe it's time to get it out again!

  12. I've had my eye on those topiaries at HG for a while now. You got them for a good price. I don't need any more but the shape of yours are cute and the pots are nice, too. Love that skirt you picked up.

  13. Love your beautiful silver dresser set Marty!
    Have a lovely week!

  14. That seems like a steal on the silver dresser set...isn't it? I spent last week trying to get things back in order after 9 days in Michigan. I don't know why it always seems like chaos when we get home from a trip. I guess I am a creature of habit and my routine gets messed worth it!

  15. Hi Marty ! Great things you've found. The skirts are really cute. There you go teasing us about what you're up to.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  16. Marty... great buys!! I bought those topiaries at TJ Maxx too! Great minds think alike!

  17. I love TJ Maxx and Marshalls. Target has espadrilles on sale for half price.

  18. Marty,
    You did an amazing job of selections during your Retail Therapy session, dear friend!!!
    I went shopping for a dress and shoes today. . .but came home empty~handed!!!
    Love the dresser set you found at Goodwill!!!
    Have a marvelous week ahead!!!

  19. I love the dresser set and I can't wait to see what you've done with the mirror.
