Rooster Rug and More!

Hi everyone! September 2nd, still can’t believe it and it’s going to be 91 today, I think I’ll decorate for fall after Labor Day! Being so hot today just isn’t the day to do it! Yesterday was my daughter Michele’s birthday so I took her out to breakfast than went shopping, seems like that’s all I get done, never any projects do I get finished as far as painting furniture goes, I do have some projects in mind though so that ‘s half the battle!

So here’s what I found to to add to my little abode:) One of my favorite blogs to visit is Dreaming of a Farmhouse, Michele’s home is so full of things that she loves and you can tell by how she decorates it, she lives in military housing but you sure wouldn’t know it, she has done it so beautifully! Anyway, someone left her a comment that Walmart had black kitchen rooster rugs , when I went with my daughter we stopped there and there were only two left….I love it and can just imagine how it will look up against the cabinet doors when they are painted Cottage White!


There was only one of these jars left, I wavered back and forth, you know how you do, should I or shouldn’t I….I should! LOL I had a crockery lookin cookie jar and wanted a different one because you see I have a Cookie Monster living with me, Mr. K! He loves cookies so I bought the peanut butter cookies for him and ah, so I’d have something in the jar when I took the picture to show you:)


We also stopped by GW, my daughter is not a GW person but she’s learning, she is redoing her home too, her walls are painted RL Hemp so now she is painting her dark pine trim Cottage White! She is off this week and has painted her coffee table and bench plus they painted the front door black, so she’s doing good.

I did find this arrangement for $1.99, Michele turned her nose up at it though but it’s fall and for the price I thought I could add to it, which I will.


Also found one of these, the taller one, I can never remember what they are called, I’m sure it’s new though because it has a scan label on the bottom!  Neat though I thought!


I don’t think I showed my kitchen door to you yet, I painted it Cottage White back in July and also making spaghetti there as you can see! I still turn the handles to the side like I have four little ones at home still.LOL


Next stop Big Lots….I found this rug for in my entryway, I had an old, navy braided one there before and it just didn’t go with the look I’m after. Michele bought new kitchen rugs and a waste basket for her bathroom for $5.00, Big Lot’s has some great saving at times I think!


Day before yesterday I stopped at our local hardware store and was so impressed to see these paint chips called Cottage Style, I picked up Fantasy Gray there were so many neat paint colors! This is for a project I have in mind!


Here is the paint chip and the guy actually put a dab of the paint on the bottom right hand corner so I think it matched great!


That’s it guys, hopefully I’ll have something done to show you next time, I feel like such a slacker.LOL  Also thanks for all your sweet comments on the arrival of Nicholas he is doing great and hopefully I’ll be seeing him again tomorrow!

I’m joining these sweet ladies for their linky parties, thanks ladies for all you do!

Look at you with a ROO rug, I have the same one by our door coming in from the garage...Love that rug! You have some pretties going on for Fall. Enjoy the weekend, I am digging out boxes today.

I think it would be fun to start shopping for fall right now, but we have the high temps, too and that's all I feel like decorating yet!! ;-D

Love all your great finds, the rooster rug will look great in front of white cabinets! When do the projects start?!!


Gina said...

You've done very well with your shopping trips...lots of great stuff at even better prices!

The rooster rug is wonderful. You girls are all making me very sorry I sold all my roosters a few years ago in a garage sale. :(

Pamela said...

Wow you had an awesome week!! Love the rooster rug. Thane for stopping by THT!

NanaDiana said...

You had a wonderful week of shopping finds. I hope you daughter doesn't develop the "taste" for GW and like the same things you do...otherwise there is always that race to see WHO GETS IT. to who gets it...if I were you I would hide that rooster rug from DebbieDoo AND Kim from Savvy SL!

Great post- xo Diana

Your shopping week has been far more successful than mine, LOL! I would love a really large glass container like yours for laundry detergent....and I would like a child's enamelware mug to scoop it out with!

Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!

Love the rooster rug!! I think I might have to check out our Walmart. I have a few roosters in my kitchen and that rug would look great in front of my sink.
I'm going to start my Fall decorating next week is just way too hot here!! I've heard that next week will be in the 70's.
Have a great weekend.

Debbie said...

Wow! looks like you went "power shopping"!!!

Hugs to you.

Looks as if you got in some shopping this week! You bought some really cute things! Like that Rooster rug, and may have to make a trip to Walmart for a super canister!

I am so pleased that you linked to Potpourri Friday and helping to make it a success! I appreciate you and hope you will link up again next week!

I love chickens, too, and that cookie jar is the one on my kitchen counter! It's always empty b/c we are big-time cookie eaters around here! andrea @ townandprairie

Donna said...

Love your demi john! I have one similar to yours, and I'd love to find some more!! Enjoy your week:)

Ellen said...

Happy Birthday to your daughter. Isn't it fun to shop with someone who would never admit that they like the sme thing. My daughter does the same thing, she loves my taste but will not admit to it.
Love the rooster rug.
