Here we are a couple of days away from Christmas 2011! Isn’t that amazing? Time is really moving a break-neck speed to me this year. But, I think that happens every year. The older you get, the faster time moves. It really feels that way to me!
I know everyone is showing Christmas treasures in one form or another right now but, I am going to be the odd man out! LOL
One of the last stores we all visit before we say our goodbyes at the Girls Annual Shopping Trip is Pier 1. We have a Pier 1 near my home but, I don’t go there very often. It’s one of those stores that my credit card keeps jumping out of my purse and wanting to be used! I do check it out every few months for clearance items and have found some really fun things marked down to prices I can handle.
When we stop at Pier, we are generally all done with our Christmas shopping and are ready to splurge a little on ourselves. We scour the aisles for those glorious red clearance stickers! LOL
Back in the summer I had stopped at Pier and spotted these cute ant picnic dishes. I thought they were so much fun but, no way could I afford to just buy them full price. Well, they had 3 left and clearanced to $1.18 and then 30% off . So, I snatched them up (there is just me, the Hubs and the Princess so, I often buy just 3 dishes). I think they are going to be so much fun this summer!
Don’t you love big tassels? I like to use them in decor and tablescapes. I picked up 4 in 2 different fun summer colors for .89 cents each. I make a lot of my own tassels and I can’t make them for that price!
And I love fun napkin rings. I generally thrift all my napkin rings or make them. There are so many awesome ones out there but, they are expensive! This was a big ‘ol honkin’ splurge for me since I usually buy thrifted napkin rings for $1.00-$2.00 a set. But, they are so fun and colorful and I knew I would not see them at a thrift store or yard sale. So, I forked over the $1.18 a piece clearanced price (original price $6.00 each! yikes!) for these cute beaded bird napkin rings..
