Feelin' Home Goods Happy

Hi Everyone!

Oh boy, Monday here we are.  Don't the weekends just fly by?  They surely do for me.  On the bright side, we are one day closer to spring and I am more than ready for that!

I happened upon this old soda crate awhile back and thought it would be perfect to put on top of the new-to-me cabinet I recently acquired from my mom.  For more on the cabinet, check out this post. I had hoped to fill two of the large compartments with antique glass demijohns, but holy cats Batman, those things are a tad expensive!  (On a side note, the little wicker demijohn was a $1.99 Goodwill find a few years ago.  I do not know why it looks dusty (it isn't), but several of the pictures in today's post look that way, too.  I am still learning the ins and outs of my new camera.  Need to figure out the "anti-dust" mode, lol, lest you think I have been neglectful of my cleaning!)

A-n-y-w-a-y, back at the ranch.....antique glass demijohns weren't happening for me, so this morning I set off to my local Home Goods to see if they had any "reasonable facsimiles."

Trying not to be distracted by the pillows, lamps, and candles (who am I kidding? I checked out the whole store?!), I kept to my mission of finding something for the crate. 

 Of course, Home Goods did not disappoint!  I found these vintage looking canning jars with antique bronze lids.  They are the perfect size and scale for my crate.  For under $15.00 with tax, they jumped into my cart and made the drive home with me.

They fit quite nicely, thank you.

Hooray for Home Goods (and an honorable mention to Marshall's - located in the same store - for having a super cute infinity scarf for me as well).  Have you gotten Home Goods happy lately?

Thanks for stopping by,

  7. I have not been to Home Goods in way too long. Things have been a bit crazy in our household, and not in a good way, so I think retail therapy is just the ticket.

  8. I love your new crate! I have a thing for wooden crates. They're so versatile. Those jars are cute that you found for it too. I love shopping at HomeGoods. I always seem to find something I love.

  9. Hi Jane! Oh, I love that crate and your new goodies! I'm always looking for those vintage scales and I love yours. Thanks for popping in to see me.
