Out with the old. In with the new!

Good Evening Bloggers!!
Another weekend coming to an end and another work week starts! Some day I can stay home and just play but for now its back to work I go.

I have done some shopping and so I thought I would post some of my purchases. They were all bought at different times.
I also thought I would share the wreath I made with recycled materials. I am trying to use up some of my crafting supplies, all a part of my purging plan.
So I hope you enjoy!

I have needed new every day dinner ware for a long time now. I was out shopping at Big Lots this weekend. I came across this set of basic red. I thought they would be just fine since I love red and red is my kitchen theme.
I have the old dinner ware boxed and ready to go to Goodwill.

I bought these two tea towels at TJ Max some time ago. I forgot to post them. I thought they were adorable, so they had to come home with me.

I was at Belk's the other day looking for a wind jacket for my hubbie. I was able to find one.
I always roam through the home department to look at all their beautiful things. I rarely buy new decorations because I can either fix something up or find it at a yard sale. But that day Belk had some fall decor on 85% off. I found this cute little sunflower bowl, so I could not resist it for such an awesome price.

I had an old foam ring upstairs in storage with all my extra silk florals. I thought I would try to make a wreath. This is what I came up with. I have this hanging on a wall in our sun room. It probably will not stay there long. I tend to get tired of wreaths pretty fast. But for now here it is.


  1. What great finds. I love the reds.
    Have a great New week.

  2. Hi Susan, The red dishes are great and you can mix and match them with other colors. Great buys.

  4. Hi Susan,
    Great finds once again my friend. Love the red dishes and those darling cupcake towels are too perfect. But that sunflower bowl from Belks was a great find for new too.
    Your wreath is very pretty and spring inspiring.

    Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment. Have a great week and don't work too hard.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie XO

  5. I love your red dishes!!! You always find the best buys ;)

  6. I am so loving those red dishes Susan! Hummmm, the hubby and I are going to Big Lots tomorrow afternoon...I wonder if I will have to explain why I bought a set of red dishes? LOL And those cupcake towels are too adorable! Great find with the sunflower dish. And I love your wreath! How about if I win the lottery, I will pay you to stay at home and make beautiful things and we will just open a pretty little shop? Okay, a girl can dream! I hope all is well with you and the Mr. Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Diann :)

  7. Susan, I like the choices you made for your home. I don't think I know any other blogger who shops more than you do my friend. Just such fun.
    Makes my day when I do too.


  8. The Red is so fabulous and I'm sure it looks great in your kitchen, such a pretty wreath too!
