Ahh, The Christmas Tree Shop!

I took some "me" time yesterday since the hubby was at work and the kiddies were at school. I shot down to the Christmas Tree Shop. I. LOVE. THAT. STORE! If you don't have Christmas Tree Shops in your area, I'm sorry. It's one of my favorite places to search for cute home accessories on the cheap.

This arrangemet is courtesy of my trip from yesterday (except for the wreath, that was an eBay find). The pendulum clock was only $12.99! I love the dark red face on it! The fabric sample in the frame was only $4.99!!! It has one of my favorite sayings on it, so it was definately coming home with me! This arrangement is just ahead of you as you come in the back door of my home.

I also found a really cute frame for my niece-to-be. It's off white, and says "Fairy tales do come true" in pink. Too cute! Lastly I found a Vera Bradley-esque quilted bag in brown and pink- for $6.99!!!

Just another successful shopping trip at the CTS!!! I hope you guys have a great weekend!!!

  2. I love that clock too, I may have to take a trip. Our shop is in Syracuse so don't get too often.

  3. I too love the Christmas Tree Shop! You got some great finds! And it's always fun to shop those kind of shops on "me" time!

  4. Great finds! We just got a CTS in our area, but I have yet to find time to get there. Now I am hoping to carve a few minutes from this weekend to check it out! Looks like they have GREAT things! I love the little display!

  5. Okay I have heard of this store, but sadly we do not have one here!!! I love the things you were able to purchase, right up my alley! Enjoy your weekend as well!

  6. I just can't get enough of that store! I love it too. We just got ours recently and I can't even count the number of times I have been there already. Great prices. I love all your purchases!

  7. Love the arrangement! Don't have a Christmas Tree Shoppe here - dang!

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my wedding post. The bright green was just one of the wedding colors my SIL picked. She chose a hot pink, bright orange and lime color scheme - I think it was so springy and happy...even though it won't stop snowing here!

  8. Oh how fun are those finds!!!! I need to get to one of those stores! I love, love, love the clock!!

    Have a great Saturday!


  9. Oh my goodness! I just found your blog, and have enjoyed my visit here! Your dogs are fabulous...I have a yellow Lab, Maggie Bleu, who is out furbaby! Hope you can come by for a visit!
