Fall Goodies!

Well I've been trying to be good and stay away from Homegoods but it really isn't my fault as I got closer my car automatically turned right in there, I didn't have anything to do with it, the car has a mind of it's own!LOL. Anyway I found these candle holders for my table (for now) believe it or not I did not have any matching wooden candle holders.
I bought this swan on clearance just cause I thought she was so pretty!

I added a couple of roosters to my collection and I found this cute wooden stand for them, I love the scalloped edges on it. This candle smells so good right now as I'm typing.


And just to add a little whimsy for fall I found this throw, I liked the colors together pink and brown! I never buy animal prints but I guess I liked this one because of the pink!



I can't believe I'm showing this picture because my yard looks horrible but it will look different when I get it done, have I ever said I am not a gardener, my Husband put up this cozy little fence area in front of my front patio, this is where I want to put my dresser if I ever get it done! It is just so hot here, I might wait till it cools off a little bit. I don't know if you can see the sky in this pic but we are going to have a terrible summer storm, those clouds look bad! I'm hurrying to get this post done before my power goes out, I always end up posting when it gets ready to rain. Talk soon(;
P.S. We are also replacing my front porch railings and posts, just in case anyone notices they need it.

Hi Kelly,

I love HoME GoODs, too!!! I just wish we had one closer than almost an hour away.

Your candlesticks are gorgeous, as is everything I see here! You have such lovely items in your China Cabinet and that Chandelier, what a tease...can only see a bit of it!! LOL!!

~Blessings,

Hi Kelly,
Well great minds think alike because I went to HomeGoods today too with my daughter. I also got some goodies for fall. I will post some pics tomorrow. I love love love the zebra throw. You are not going to believe this but I bought a zebra pillow to match my zebra plates at Hobby Lobby yesterday and I love it. I think a little bit of animal print looks good in any room. You got some great finds. I LOVE HOMEGOODS!!! I know it may be a tad early but I am decorated for fall.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

I love Homegoods and they know me by name in there. I stay over an hour everytime as I don't want to miss a thing.
My hubby works over in Ft Lauderdale every other week and the office is close to Davie. We plan to bring the RV over instead of staying in a hotel when he needs to be there and so that I can come too. I need to find out from you where all the great shops are as we seem to have the same taste. I was looking at your fireplace screen...I have the same one. lol Looking forward to hearing from you.

I have been hearing Home Goods call my name this week. Today may be the day I answer back and go! You found some cute things! They have such great rooster stuff right now!

So enjoy your blog. I found you through Sea Cottage.
I love pink too, and I live in Mississippi and long for some cooler weather!

You know I never thought of telling my farmer hubby that it was my car's fault, that it had a mind of its own. That the car just naturally drove to certain places because it was so depressed over gas prices, that it naturally had to comfort itself by driving straight to my, I mean its favorite places. That is good. Really good!
Love your finds!
Blessings, Debbie

Hi Kellie,
Becky again. Here is my e-mail address. www.lacelures@aol.com.
We have never stayed in that area before but I guess there is a RV park called Yacht Haven on Marina Mile Road which is very close to Dave's office. So probably in the next 3 weeks as the floors will keep us out of the Eufaula house one more time and then we bring the RV home. I would love to get together with you. Our hubby's like the same toys too :)
This could be dangerous ya know!
lol

Our Homegoods is about an hour away away! Love your finds! I had swans in the late 80's...but I still love them. I am now starting to be up and coming on Roosters. lol. Love the pink and brown leopord blankie...where did you get that? Did you get my comment on the meet up?

Hi again Kelly, oh my hubby can relate to the car thing. His farm truck pulls into Farm stores, tractor supply stores, Feed stores, auctions (that sell live animals). Let me tell you girlfriend it works both ways!! Big smile. My hubby asks me how much I spent and I say it cost 5 bales of hay!! (Bigger smile)
Have a great day!
Debbie

What a fun store that must be, I hear about it from so many bloggers, the nearest one to us is 2 1/2 hours away in Portland Oregon! Dang!!!!!My car goes into Starbucks like yours does to Home Goods, bad, bad cars...

Take care and hopefully you will be enjoying cooler weather soon!

Can you believe I have never been to a HomeGoods!! There is one by my Aunts who we visit weekly, I am going to stop in there next week!
And those clouds rolling in, yikes! I like a summer shower but those spooky clouds make me get my candles out and I head downstairs!! Hope all is good there!

Your yard might seem to look bad to you but that pretty fence does a lot for it. I really like it. Have a great weekend. I wish we had a Homegoods in Califronia.
