So.....I decided to head West......
I did score a few handmade necklaces at a few of the cute boutiques......
I wore this one to dinner last night.......sorry fo the BAD pic. It was taken on my phone.
It is rhinestone crosses and damask print glass charms. Love it! ONLY $26.
This was another glass pendant charm. Very vintage looking...with a sweet crown with glitter. ONLY $8.50
Oh well....on my way back into the Fort Worth area I had to stop off at TJ Maxx, of coarse! I found a few things for the house.....
I also got these pretty BLUE dishes. I got several pieces that included the oval serving plates and some bowls. I thought they would be good at parties to put appetizers and dips in. PRETTY!
I also got 3 new dresses off the clearance racks.....all for $35. My new obsession is dresses.....that seems to be all I am wearing this summer.
I got this cute antiqued sign....not sure where I am going to hang it yet, but I love the look and color. It was 50% off of coarse....so it was only $9!
I ended my day with an evening trip to Barnes and Nobles....all alone. Ahhhhh.....
I first went to the Starbucks counter......of coarse. I have to say....I was a bit sad. This is not my usual Starbucks. My usual local Starbucks friends make the best White Mocha "with an extra shot of expresso" ever! It was not the same....but again....I am a bit SPOILED!
I found a book that Reid needed for summer reading for his AP History class. "American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House". I have to say it looks pretty interesting...I may just have to read it.
Then, I was off to browse the other areas and ended up in the Cookbooks, Home Interior and Crafting sections. And......I came across this book......Tara Frey's book. "Blogging for Bliss: Crafting Your Own Online Journal". I visit Tara's blog daily and some of the other blogs I follow have mentioned that they have been featured in her book, however I had never seen it (although I never looked for it) in a store. I just happened to be scanning the books and it caught my eye!! YAY! I am looking forward to reading it this weekend!
I will try and get the pics of my NEW Family Room in the next few days.....it is still a work in progress!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with the ones you love........
My Maddie will be home from her trip with her MiMi and Aunt Sisssy and her cousin Hannah. I have missed her and can't wait to see her! It was TOO quiet around here with out her.
