Don’t you love it when you find something you’ve been searching for for a very long time? I want to share with you a couple of the items that had been on my search list and then one other fun item that is too good a deal not to share with you!
#1. I had purchased an outdoor rug some yers ago for my front porch that was only about 3 x 5 and cost me $65 – which is steep in my book. I really wanted to purchase a similar rug for my patio, but didn’t want to spend a fortune on it. My sister put me onto Lowe’s patio furniture area that had huge outdoor rugs for $30!
I made my way to Lowe’s as quick as I learned about this. Sure enough, there were several patterns and colors available and for only $30. Here’s the one I came home with. I’m loving it! I believe its size is 5×8.
#2. White jewelry for summertime is so perfect, but I had a really difficult time finding white earrings that weren’t either too huge, or too small. I was at Charming Charile’s on our vacation and came across their buy one get one free sale! I found the perfect set – a tassel necklace and matching earrings that were gold and WHITE! Chances are if you see me two days in a row, one of those days I’ll be wearing this duo!
Do you own a tassel necklace? I’m probably a bit behind the rage, but I’m glad I’m finally on board! I love this one.
#3. Lastly let me show you what I stumbled across at Big Lots this week. I’m a gonner when it comes to pretty dishes. I’ve really held myself back since we moved, but since we eat outside on the back porch so much I thought it would be nice to have some outdoor (unbreakable) plates. TJ Maax had a turquoise set I loved but they were more than I wanted to pay. Then when I ran into Big Lots for something else entirely I saw these for only $2.50 each.
I bought the lunch size and they’re also perfect for salad or dessert. I got four and my have to go back for four more so I’ll have enough to use when we entertain outside. They also had yellow, and I’m thinking I may do half and half. Pretty dishes can make even a simple meal more special!
So there you go! Who else is on the quest for a special item? I hope my recommendation helps someone with their search!
