I Couldn't Help Myself....

I had to get out! The sun is shining and it is an absolutely beautiful day here! So I went to ....Walmart, that happens on occasion and I don't really understand why ~giggle~ . I found these fun things and I paid less then $15.00, so I am proud of myself.
The red box, I hope will help me with my organization problem on my desk. Is there really any help with that? .....Usually, for about a week, then I don't know what happens! I'll show you why I bought these flowers in a second.

These are tealight holders and I thought they would be perfect for Valentines Day to put at each setting on the table. They could also be used to hold salt crystals or pepper or even a dip of some sort for part of a special meal. And will look good anytime, really!

Okay, here are the flowers. I purchased this pot a while ago and I love it! It is magnetic and can be used in alot of places to dress up anything that is metal. Obviously, this is my fridge, but it could also be used on a metal filing cabinet in an office space to hold pencils, pens, scissors. Or any over the desk cabinet that is metal in an office. How about in a laundry room to dress up, say the side of a dryer or washer that is the stackable kind. Or even a medicine cabinet in a bathroom. Lots of places!

This is the bottom of the vase. It is called MagPots and here is their website:

I just love mine!

And then I couldn't resist this candle. It was clearanced for $5.00 and I figure once the candle is gone I can use it for storage somewhere in my home. Bathroom, laundry room, even the kitchen.

And when I got home....this was waiting for me.
My new copy of Create & Decorate!

(Update: I should probably mention that I purchased my MagPot in a specialty shop.)


  1. You're not going to believe this but I wanted to get one of those candle from Wal-mart for my windowsill...I was tweaking the kitchen window and thought one of those candles would look perfect on it.

  2. I just got my new candle...stop over and take a look!

  5. Popping in to say thank you for your nice visit and sweet comments. I've been having myself a great time looking around in your cheerful blog.

    I really like that magnetic pot and will look for one when I get to Wal*Mart (one of my favorite places ;>) later this afternoon.

    Hope that you'll feel free to visit often!
