A Case of Mistaken Identity

Felt that urge to do a little shopping this morning, so I thought I would share with you my treasures!  Oh, the bounty!

Here you are viewing the whole kit and kaboodle. (Oops! Irish Garfield is lurking in the background - better box that kitty up until next year!)  Check out the metal/woven container.  It is the neatest thing.  I am thinking of spraying the outside a different color, but I am going to think that one over.  I know it will look good outside in our front sitting area filled with plants. A cheapie deal at $1.99!

A little closer view:  $2 fabric squares from JoAnn, soon to be coming to life as basket liners for Easter brunch.  I love these squares - discontinued upholstery, high end fabric!  I buy them every chance I get.  They make great pillows, little table toppers - the sky's the limit.  

I also popped into Kirkland's and this is where the identity crisis comes in.  These little metal "bugs" were only $2.99 ea. and I thought they would be fab-oh-la in a tablescape with my "bee" glasses.  I thought that because they looked like....well, like bees!  After I got them home, though, I think they may be butterflies.  Not sure.  So, I think I will just go on pretending they are bees.  Either way they are so stinkin' cute!  They have a bronze-y type finish right now, but they may get a blast from the ol' spray paint can. 

This sweet egg picture came from Goodwill.  At $1.99!  What more can I say?  The frame is pretty beat up, but I am going to spray paint it anyway.  I love it!

I also bought six Mason/Kerr jars at 49 cents each.  They are currently lounging in a warm, sudsy spa and are looking forward to spending some time being pampered with spray paint.  Such a popular idea right now and you can count me in on that bandwagon.

Hey...thanks a bunch for stopping in to see my treasures du jour! I will show you them worked into my decor in future posts.  Hope you are having a wonderful day.

I will be partying it up with Kim @   Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesday.  Be sure to stop by and see not only Kim's fabulous blog, but tons of inspiration from other bloggers. 

Wishing you happiness,


  1. You did find some neat things today! You're like me and use spray paint whenever possible. Ha! I painted my basket in the center of my table with spray paint. That stuff is magic! Love all your goodies. I never knew that Joannes sold fabric squares like that. Good to know!

    1. That fabric is just the best! The four I picked up the other day are actually outdoor fabric, so they could have future as patio pillows. Every imaginable color and style combo. Check them out!

  2. This looks great. I would love for you to drop by My Dream Canvas as well :-) I’m visiting from Wow Us Wednesdays. Really like your blog.

  3. Thank you for your visit. Welcome to My Dream Canvas :-)

  4. Love the Easter print... The frame will look fab when spray painted perhaps - yellow or teal... !!
