A Few New but Still Thirfty Finds!

I had such a nice day out with the hubby yesterday. I had to have blood drawn for labs and he had to get some x-rays, so we both took the day off work to get these things done and then spent a fun day together. We ate a yummy lunch at Red Robin...I had a bruschetta grilled chicken sandwich that was very tasty. The hubs had a burger...he's a burger lover! After lunch, we headed to the movie theater. We had about half an hour to wait and lucky for me...Tuesday Morning is just around the corner from the movie theater, so of f we went. I found several little things to bring home with me. First up was this burlap covered glass vase/candle holder. I actually found one similar at TJ Maxx a while back that I wanted but the bee image was not centered, so I passed on it. This one looks great. I had to have it. 

I also got this boxwood ball. I have been wanting some faux boxwood but it is normally really pricey. This little guy was only $2.95!

I got lots of crafty items.....buttons & glitter,

metal embellishments,

and some stamps and colored pencils. I love Tuesday Morning but I hardly ever get to go. They have so many lovely things! I bought a couple other things too that I forgot to take pictures of.

After we left Tuesday Morning, we went to the movie theater and watched this:

The movie was really good...we both enjoyed it. After the movie, I needed wanted to run by the new Jo-Ann's fabric and craft store. I had not been to the new one yet and I was in awe! It is huge...I could have spent a few hours in there but I didn't. That's not the hubby's cup of tea, but he was a good sport and didn't complain. I bought a few things while I was there. I needed a few more fabrics for making yo-yo's. These are the ones I got. All the fat quarters were just $0.99 yesterday!

I love the rainbow colors!

I loved this print too and bought a quarter yard of it as well.

I also bought the items below. The fabric is what I went to Jo-Ann's for to begin with. I have been needing a coral colored fabric for a project I wanted to complete. I found this piece which has silver polka dots on it and love it! The other items are for the project as well.

It will be combined with this tea towel I bought a few weeks ago.

 I am almost finished with it and will share soon!
I have to get the hubby to help me with the grommets tomorrow. 
I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I am enjoying mine very much!
Until next time.....


  1. 0.99 cents for fat quarters! You lucky, lucky girl :) Yes, I do love the rainbow of colors - they make me smile.

    Your day sounded wonderful, sweet friend. I pray your test come back with good and positive news. Love and hugs to you!

  2. I agree that is a deal on the fat quarter. I like the bee image and I LOVE Tuesday Morning. I have a store right next to where we buy pet supplies. chucks always knows if I go to get pet food, I will come back with a bird or a head from there :>) It sounds like a fantastic weekend.

  3. Looks like great stuff Vicky! I have one of the burlap covered vases but I think mine has a chandelier printed on it and it is from TJ Maxx. We have a Tuesday Morning too but I always forget about it, I may have to check it out soon!

    Sounds like a nice day with your husband... sometimes I miss those....


  4. Love the burlap candle holder! Frenchy stuff always makes me smile. Glad you are having a good weekend. I'm happy to have both my daughters around this weekend.
    hugs, Linda
