I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Fabulous Finds

Win me!


As I mentioned previously I managed to find some great deals when we went away for for Christmas. My very favorite with out a doubt is the little birdy you see above. It was only $1...From Walmart! When I saw it in the Christmas clearance department I'm sure I let out a little squeal and thought 'Do not go over $5 on that!' I was so excited to get it for half off at only $1. There is really nothing Christmas-y about it and the orange glitter matches my living room walls perfectly. It is now hanging on a little hook on the mantle. I did buy another at my local store a few days later. Who wants one? Leave a comment and you will placed in a drawing I will pull on January 20th!!

Did I ever mention that my very favorite way to relax is with a cup of Tazo Zen tea and a biscotti? I don't think so. Anyways I was quite pleased to find a lovely ceramic jar filled with Nonni's Biscottis for around $4(also at Walmart). I then found even another fun deal at BB's. No trip to my In-Laws is complete with out a visit to BB's. Its a grocery outlet ran by the Amish. We find the most fabulous deals there like crazy ethnic sauces for $.25 and big bottles of juice for $.60. Sometimes you have to be careful because some stuff is way out of date(a few weeks isn't gonna hurt!) the best find though was 3 boxes of Nonni's Biscotti's for $.75 each! Sure their 'best by' date was in November but they are supposed to be hard anyways! It's the little things I tell you...the little things.



*Since only 2 of you commented and one already has this and the other suffers from Ornithophobia I will be using this for something else. I was trying to get to know my readers because according the the FEEDjit there sure are a lot of them! Oh well!*

Aren't those caged birds awesome!! I bought three of them when I first found the at WallyWorld at the start of the season, and grabbed 3 more when they went on clearance. They are hanging in my kitchen (I will have to post a pic). Say what you will, but I love Wal-mart!!

...but not as much as Target ;-)
