Sunday Shopping at HomeGoods

11.01.2009

I made my usual Sunday rounds at HomeGoods today and thought I'd show you my goodies. This time I shopped both for myself and a design project I am working on for someone else. I'll show you my haul today, and later this week I'll show you how I shop for a specific project.

Last month I found these great Halloween cling stickers and purchased a pack that included *BOO*,which I used on the side window at my front door...


and *WICKED* which I used on a wall in my foyer that includes a black and white theme year-round. I've been joking with people that this is the wall my husband always decorates for Halloween and this year he dedicated it to me -
ha! ha!cackle! cackle!


So today when I was rooting around in the paper goods section, I came across these great clings for the Christmas holidays and snatched them up. At $5.99 for the pack (there are two different sets in each) they are a great value for sticking on walls, windows and even mirrors.

And these can even be used after the holidays throughout the winter.


I also picked up a packet of letters and came right home and "monogrammed" a plate in my powder room.


I also found this very versatile two-tiered round iron basket perfect for setting on a kitchen island, buffet or wine bar. Fill with goodies or pretty ornaments for a holiday party... or with things for a coffee, wine or relaxation theme for a hostess gift.


I'm a sucker for little glass animals ... look at this handsome turtle. I love that he looks like he's on his way somewhere.


If you're a HomeGoods Scout like me, make sure you browse the bed + bath section really well. I've found all of my favorite little porcelain "fill-ins" scattered among the soap dishes and toothbrush holders. Found this one today - robins egg blue with brown designs. You can't see the colors very well but trust me - it's fab*u*lous.



I've had this little trio of white/royal blue for a couple years. They rotate different places in my house and are currently on a little side chest in a corner of my keeping room. Each was priced $4.99 - $7.99.


Beautiful scarf with luscious large pink roses - $7.99.

And my greatest find of the day. I've been struggling with stacked plastic drawers in my small walk-in closet to hold my workout clothes and lounge pants that won't fit in my dresser drawers. They were functional, but also tipsy, and the drawers didn't work great. I found this marked down to $75 because a leg had broken off and was hastily glued back on. It's not noticeable from the front and I knew it would fit the space in my closet perfectly.


All my homeless clothes will easily stack here and I can add some baskets to fill with tights, scarves, small wallets, and belts.

That's the end of my shopping adventure. Thanks for coming along. And just think - you didn't even have to push the cart, maneuver all the crowds, stand in line or pay!

Tonja :

I'm sure it is a 'God thing' that I do not live near Homegoods! There is 200 miles between me and the nearest one! Cause if I did, I could not be trusted to stay away. I would have to visit often. I know the one is B'ham is full of things meant for ME...and someone else is taking them home!
Breaks my heart!

Wacie's Way :

Hubby and I hit our brand new HomeGoods Friday night (yep, that was our Friday night date!!). We had dinner first and I limited myself to one drink - didn't want to get too loopy and then spend a buttload of money. Anyway, I LOVE that store!! $71 later, we got alot of really cool stuff. I asked the cashier what days did their shipment come in, but she wasn't sure. Somehow I'm going to have to work this into my weekly routine!!

Heidi :

I haven't been to HomeGoods in SO long. You've inspired me to go soon!

Great finds!

Hugs!
