Fun New Things From My Shopping Spreeeee

During the visit with my Mom last week, of course we had to go shopping. I took her to Hobby Lobby which is a new store to this area. Hobby Lobby has been open for only a couple of months and so far, I have spent quite a bit of money there. They have fantastic deals, especially during the grand opening which I purchased lots of scrap booking supplies for 50% off.

While shopping for items for my Primary class party I saw these two fairies. I resisted and didn't purchase them. When Mom and I went back last week, they were still there at 50% off and I couldn't resist them this time. Mom purchased one as a birthday gift (she wanted to purchase both but I wouldn't let her) and I purchased the other one.
They have the sweetest faces. I love them!

I also purchased tulip silk flowers to put out in the front of my house. Yes, I put fake flowers out in my yard - ha ha!! Saturday my sister brought my the dragon fly stake to put in the pots (for my birthday). Thanks Chris!
Here is a look at the tulips and my Easter Egg tree. You can see my Easter decorations here and here from last year.
I also purchased this sign. I loved the saying: "The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have".
I've also been looking for some new larger candle holders to go on my new table under the big picture in my living room. My older ones were too small and not the right scale for the table or the picture. I can't show the picture of the candle sticks on the table right now because it has the Easter village on it. Anyway, they are beautiful and were also 50% off. Yeah!
Originally my Mom was going to purchase a blow up queen bed for me as a Christmas present, but she gave me my big picture instead. Then she was going to buy it for my birthday. We looked at it while we were at Shopko last Tuesday (while I purchased DVD of New Moon and The Time Travelers Wife). They were $80 and I told her she could not spend that much money on me. Sheeeeesh you'd think she had a job or something instead of retired. Anyway I told her NO and that I really didn't need one that bad.

We get by fine when someone visits, poor Brady has to give up his room and sleep on the twin blow up mattress that we use for camping in my scrap book room.

I wasn't going to spend $80 on one when you can find it on sale. This was Tuesday and on Wednesday it was on Sale in an ad in the newspaper at Shopko and JC Penney's. I thought the one at JC Penney's looked more deluxe then the one at Shopko. They were on sale for the same price $45. We stopped by JC Penney's and it was on sale for $29.99 and I had a 15% off coupon making it $25.

Woo Hoo on a super bargain theirs was down from $90. Again, Mom wanted to purchase it, but I wouldn't let her. Here she is working with me to make extra money and it kind of defeats the purpose when she wants to spend money I gave her on me (shaking head).
Anyway, lots of shopping and spending money last week. But I got some AWESOME deals which makes me happy.

We don't have a Hobby Lobby close but I had heard they have some fun stuff. Your decorations look beautiful.

Wow! Score for you. You are a master bargain shopper-hold out for the best deal-girl.

Nice for your mom to be with you and helping you.

I love your doorscape. I wish it looked like spring around here.

Awww it's always fun to spend money isn't it!! Glad you had fun shopping with your mom :D

Are you on Hobby Lobby's e-mail list? They send a 40% off coupon at least once a month!

P.S. I just had to add that I am shocked (and a little delighted :D) but still shocked that you bought New Moon - You said how much you hated it in your posts and comments so often, that I thought you would not go near it!!
I knew you couldn't stay away! (wink)
