I went to TJ Maxx this weekend to look for, well, I don't know, a good deal on something. And a good deal is what I got! This particular store is moving, so all of their home, shoes and clearance items were an additional 40% off.
I found this ultra cute rod. I like the patina on it, but I may paint it later depending on where I put it. I don't have any plans for it, but it was so cute, and such a good price, I bought it anyway.
See the sweet little bird on the one end?
At a price that can't be beat (40% off $9.99).
I also found this cute easel...a girl can never have too many of those. So many ways to use them!
I may or may not paint this. I liked the shape and detail a lot. I also liked the price (40% off $5.99)
Here's a little wall pocket I made this weekend. I'd bought the actual pocket at a thrift store quite a while back, for something like $1.00. This weekend I got the brilliant idea to load it up with fall florals, tie a pretty ribbon on it, and hang it out front. The florals were 50% off, as was the ribbon. What do you think?
I need to plant the mums. I didn't buy enough for that planter. The purple one was supposed to go on the back patio. I want the front planter to have red and yellow.
I also bought some little pumpkins (gourds?) to put in my birdbath in the front flower bed since the birds don't use it.
As with the mums, I didn't buy enough pumpkins (gourds?) so I need to go back and get a few more.
The only other crafty thing I managed to do was to make these earrings. I saw some similar ones online somewhere, and thought "I have the supplies, I can do that!" I used black and pewter colored beads.
Now, I need to go find out about those Pat Green tix! Wishing hubs would have taken my hint and bought them. No such luck!
