Marshalls,etc. Goodies

I am actually writing this post in response to Nicole at She has a terrific blog and wonderful products, too. Way back (June)she wrote about some goodies she had found at TJ Maxx and I was about to respond when my computer "malfunctioned". It didn't crash but I couldn't do a thing that required more than one page being open! So finally I can access some pics!

I am a lover of TJ Maxx, Homegoods, and Marshalls. Usually in that order, but, lately it has been Marshalls and TJ Maxx. Homegoods has not been good to me!Perhaps because everyone is catching on to going there very frequently. I used to go there when no one else I knew was aware of it. I think the whole yard decor really took off there, because there is nothing left. A new one is opening this weekend nearby...hmmm.
I went a few times in the past month for present ideas...yeah that did not happen-right to the home department! So, here are a few of the great things that I have gotten lately. I saw this beauty :

...I waited from $12 to 10 to 7 to $5! It took restraint, but I like it so much more when I have gotten the deal! I found these pretty white dishes with a crown at Marshalls- the bowl- $2.99 and the plate $3.99. It seemed worth it! The sticker on the plate says Annabelle ~so cute I don't want to remove it!

Then for the garden, I found a sweet bunny for $5.99 and it is very heavy! I will take some garden shots-now that the garden is finally getting sun!

I also found a sleeping puppy, which I had searched for when our 2 year old lab died last year (another story-another time). I did find one on ebay and sent for it to find it was not real "sandicast', but plastic. I liked it but.... Unfortunately, our present lab thinks it is funny to run around the yard with it and not respect poor Buster. The new sleeping pup is very heavy and will not travel around the yard. It is placed under the "dogwood" tree that we planted -and has silly wire fence around it, too!

But, the best find was this pair of bird prints that I found at Marshalls. They were $19.99 each. I wanted to wait, but I got panicky when I left them behind. I told myself that I would go back the next day and if they were there-it was meant to be. Joy, joy! They were there and now they hang in my living room. I will post pics of my rooms soon. College son is home and everything gets dropped!

So, now on the lookout for more bargains to love.
