HomeGoods, Kirklands, TJMaxx, Marshall’s and Hobby Lobby!

First though I have to be a bragging GrammySmilefor a moment.

Isn’t he adorable, I took so many pictures of Nicholas as he was bouncing away in his saucer. He’s 5 months old and the picture of his dad, I have a picture of Nick at 4 months and they could be twins. I baby sat  him at his house Thursday, I just love kissing those cheeks.

His dad trying to get him to smile.


Here’s one where I didn’t cut the top of his head off. He’s such a good baby tooSmile




Friday was shopping day and I bought something in each store, you see I don’t get to go to Homegoods this was just my second time there and my first to Hobby Lobby which I  loved! You ladies are so lucky to have one close to you, ours is about 35 miles away which is ok but you have to fight Pittsburgh traffic to get there and home and leave at certain times to avoid the traffic, Lynda and I already have plans to go again in the springSmile

Here’s what I bought:

First we went to HomeGoods and I found a subway art that caught my eye, it’s all about wine, my favorite wine is the sixth one down! Love it next to my white corner hutch! Not to bad of a price for it…$24.99.


Next we hit Kirkland’s which is right next door, a lot of sales going on there and was happy to find a chalkboard rooster on clearance for $6.99. It had a homespun ribbon on it but I cut it off and used black and white French ribbon that I already had.


Then guess what? At TJMaxx I found the hammered, silver, oval tray, Lynda found it for me, I couldn’t believe it but the greatest was that it was on clearance for $15.00 down from $19.99. Score, it was meant to be. LOLP2112315

It was made for the place that I wanted it to go I think.Smile


Marshall’s had these wire baskets just waiting for me at $7.99 a piece.


When I went to pay for them the cashier said that they had been very popular that day, so glad I got the two of the three that was left, later I saw one young lady carrying the last one around. I added the chalkboard tags and was happy.Smile


Our last place to go was Hobby Lobby, what can I say, it was huge! They had everything you could possibly want, loved this framed glass with our initial on it, I hung it in the bathroom.


Loved the clean lines of the distressing too


I also bought some burlap and some upholstery tacks for a project I want to do soon.


The first place in the store that I headed to was the knobs they were half off so some were either all gone or picked over and I don’t blame the person because it was such a deal! I bought these three knobs for the end table I found at GW couldn’t make up my mind so I got all three. It will be fun deciding on which one to use.


I had a great time, sometimes shopping is such great therapy don’t you think? SmileEspecially with a great friend!

I’ll be joining these parties:

What a great shopping adventure you had! I would have loved to have been with you! They closed down our Kirklands :( I can't wait to see what you are doing with the burlap! I'm glad I stumbled upon your blog. I love it! Hope you visit me :)

Hi Rondell,
You found some wonderful goodies on your shopping trip.
We have a Hobby Lobby here in takes me about 10 minutes to get there. Love that store!! We had a Kirklands, but they closed it a couple of years ago. Made me sad, because I used to get alot of things from there. I'm happy to say that we are getting a Homes Good will open in March and I can't wait to go there.
Your little grandson is adorable!!

Love all your new goodies. I really like the framed glass initial. Love the black and white in your kitchen.

You definitely found my favorite shops! I love them all. We don't have a Kirkland's by us but I did just find their website and ordered a few decorative things online! Great sales!

I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with the burlap. I have some and am at a loss as to what to do with it. Just little ideas floating in my head! :)

Your grandson is a doll! I am sure your time with him is precious!

Happy Sunday!

You had me a shopping of my favorite hobbies! I love when I'm successful at finding great buys and you really di get some great stuff. We have a Hobby Lobby nearby and I have to stay away because I lose control when I'm in there! Thanks for linking up at Sunday Blog Love, you're one of my top five picks! If you've got time, please come on over and show more of what you've been up to! Have a great weekend!

Kristel said...

I absolutely have to agree....although shopping with someone or alone still does it for me. What great finds you found....I would call this a very successful shopping day indeed...I am now craving one :) I love the knob on the left by the way! I'm your newest LInky follower!
