A Little (Lot) of Retail Therapy

I've had some time to myself recently, so a little shopping was in order.  I showed you the bedding I bought for $33.00.  I also bought sofa and loveseat slipcovers. I had grown tired of the drop cloth covers I made.  I knew about all the mistakes, and just couldn't get past that, so after a couple of months, I packed them up.  At some point, I might make some corrections to them and use them again.  I picked up the stretch slip covers from Wal Mart.  They only had taupe to choose from, but at least they cover the worn areas of my furniture, and fit fairly well after some adjustments where I sewed the arm sections by hand to make them fit.

I would have liked a sage green color, but none available.

I also got this pillow.  I saw it a few days ago, and couldn't get it out of my head, so I went back and got it to go on the guest bed.

It's a Wal Mart find (BHG), but it reminds me of the high end pillows we see on some of the blogs.  Mine:  $13.++

Consignment finds from Queen of Hearts:

Love this tray:  $14.00

I'm collecting plates with pink roses for above the windows in the sun room, $7.00.
This lantern holds a candle.  It will probably get a paint job soon.

I went to At Home, and bought a rug to go under the breakfast table.

 It's a little smaller than I wanted, but I was thinking I needed a 5x8, and bought that.  I actually needed at least a 6x9.  Oh well, it wasn't expensive, so I can replace it whenever.  I do like the design alot.

I found this wreath on clearance at KMart for $8.99, originally $29.99.

I found a lovely runner that looks like it has been embroidered, but it hasn't.  I'm thinking I'll finish it.  It was only $3.50 at an antique shop I visited.  

Then, this lovely fretwork platter for only $5.00, at the same antique shop.

There are a few other things that I will share later.  I've been busy shopping! Time to stop!!!!!
