I've Went Shopping ;)

Hello, Dear Ones! Oh, isn't there just something about getting a bargain? I mean really getting a bargain price for something. You know that wonderful feeling! Well, I've been shopping for some little treasures and looking for some bargains. My first stop was Pier One - I love that place! Can you love Pier One? You bet your little bean bag chair you can! See what I found in the clearance area? Precious little candelabra.
See the cute little birdie? Oh, my heart went pitter pat. I had to have this!
Then I spied this huge candle and look - it had been marked down because the top had a little scrunchedness on it. Who cares about scrunchedness! I'm gonna burn this baby.
Oh, and one of the most important things - one of my favorite flavors. I know, you call them scents, I call them flavors. If you love candles, really and truly the ones from Pier One do smell terrific.
Okay, LOOKIE! I thought I was getting bargain prices, but when I got to the check out, they practically were giving these little treasures to me! Whoopeeness! Do you see the price I paid for both items? $9.17! The candelabra had been $20 and I got it for $4.98, I think! I'm just so thrilled and I know I really got a these items for a great price. Now, should I spray paint the little birdie candlestick or leave it bronze!? Decisions decisions! :)

I'm not finished yet! I got another chance to get out and about the other day and ran into Cracker Barrel to look at their little cute shop. You know what sweet things they have sometimes. Well, let me tell you something...the kid in me just popped out and I just started gathering little Easter things right and left. Let me show you what I found.

Precious little sweetnesses...

Little chicks salt and peppers in the softest pastel yellow and green.
Then little bunny salt and peppers in soft pastel blue and pink! Now you know how I love my little salt and peppers! Can you love salt and peppers? You bet your little Peter Cottontail you can! ;)
I know this photo and the next are a tad blurry - I was just so excited! I found four of these darling little Easter egg cups.
One side had the Easter Bunny on it...
the other side a pretty little bouquet of flowers.
This is the inside of the egg cup. Isn't this just the cutest little thing? Now you know why I had to have them.
Then I spied this little birdie - I believe she's made of some sort of tin.
Then I spied this little birdie. What in the world am I going to do with these birdies? I don't have a clue but they really were calling my name! :)
Now if you know me, you know it doesn't take too much to make me happy. Well, Dear Ones, these little Easter trinkets just made my day! I'm very happy and I'm smiling as I type these words! Go on over to the Cracker Barrel and get happy!!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

The Partridge Family Theme Song

Hello, world, here's a song that we're singin',
C'mon get happy
A whole lotta lovin' is what we'll be bringin',
We'll make you happy
We had a dream we'd go trav'lin' together
We'd spread a little lovin' then we'd keep movin' on
Somethin' always happens whenever we're together
We get a happy feelin' when we're singin' a song
Trav'lin' along there's a song that we're singin',
C'mon get happy
A whole lotta lovin' is what we'll be bringin',
We'll make you happy
We'll make you happy,
We'll make you happy
~sung by the Partridge Family
