A couple of finds ...

Today on my way home from work, I made a stop at Michaels. They already have all their fall stuff out so all the spring/summer things were on sale. While I was there though, I came across a roll of burlap. Who knew the stuff came in rolls? Well, I had made a second larger shell wreath to accompany the first I'd made and thought it looked plain so this is what became of the burlap once I got it home.

Back to the sale though ... I had looked at a bunch of pitchers they had a few times over the past few months but always passed them up. I found this one for $6. Once I was at the check-out, I noticed a scuff mark on it so I told the woman that I didn't want it. She offered a further discount! I took another look at the scuff mark and thought I could remove it so I got it for $4. Sure enough, the mark came off. I got some flowers (poorly arranged because they were falling apart after I got them!) to fill it with on my trip to pick up dinner.

Tomorrow, I'll share a few little things I picked up in Delaware last weekend.


  1. I didn't know that burlap came in rolls either. Love it. The wreath is just gorgeous. I also LOVE the pitcher. I guess I need to make a trip to Michaels. Your finds are just gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

  2. I stopped at M's last week and got a pitcher very similiar to your's for 60% off!!

    Love your wreath and the burlap just makes it look that much more beachier - who knew!!

    Great finds -

  3. The burlap ribbon looks fabulous on your wreath. I did know about this little secret
    ; ) and have a couple of posts on the blog where I used it. I found it in back in the fall while looking for a Styrofoam cone. Fantastic stuff and it isn't very expensive which makes it even better.

    Your father did a beautiful job with the furniture. Looks like a completely different room bathed in white and blue. The chandy is lovely too. Very pretty room.

  4. Love the pitcher and the little birds that are with it.

  5. I love that burlap that you added to the wreath. It's the perfect touch! I saw that pitcher at Michael's too and loved it. But it was too pricey. I may have to go back and see if it is on sale. Thanks for the "head's up"!

  6. Love the burlap on you're shell wreath. I have been looking for a roll of it - but hadn't checked Michael's yet. Guess where I'm heading tomorrow? Thanks for the tip! The pitcher and little birdies are so cute too - I have something similar. Great minds = same tastes. :)


  7. I have the same pitcher - nice to know I might start being on the same page as you!

  8. Love your shell wreath and the burlap makes it look even more chic! And the pitcher is so cute - I love discounts!

  9. I love the way you've incorporated the two together
