I Can't Believe That I Only Purchased Two Items.........

OUR THIRD SUNDAY SHOPPING SECRETS




What a handy tool for the bar or kitchen. Wine opener!

We enjoy having a glass of wine in the evening; my daughter had a wine opener like
this and I decided that the old fashion openers with the screw cork took too much time.
So this week I purchased one for us. This removes the cork and then reverse and pops
the cork loose.

This box caught my eye. I love to accessories my home; my girls think I have too much sitting
around. What would they think if they came to visit and I removed all my accessories or just
half of them. I like lots of stuff and I like to change them out as the seasons come and go.

This box is black and gold. It's not a bright gold nor is it shiny it's a really pretty gold color
and it works great in several rooms. I just don't know where its' home will be for now. It
is on the bedroom dresser for now.



I really thought I got a good deal for this box is fairly large. It's as large as a dinner plate.
Oh, gosh I guess I shouldn't have said that; Gollum will tell me to hide my dishes in here!


I guess I saved money this week; I usually have a lot of items in my bag.

I thank all you ladies who have joined us in the past and those who will be joining us this week.

Great looking wine opener. Sometimes they are so big and bulky. This one looks so sleek and contemporary. LOVE the box. It is just gorgeous. I know you will find a lot of different places to use it. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Marty

Hello !
I love that ornamental box, so neat -I know you
will figure out where it belongs. I remember when I was a little younger, I thought also of
having too much stuff...since then I really like my stuff , it makes me happy - so there ya are ! I love to change out things too - lucky for my family it is only the things and not always the furniture ! My mom was an interior decorator and changed the furniture all the time ! I remember that you always had to make sure to turn on a light , as not to walk into the furniture that had been moved....LOL ! Thanks so much for hosting again-I like this one as I always am shopping for a deal !

Anita,
I love the idea of this wine cork opener, does it work well? Your new box is very pretty and looks like something I would buy. I hope you are doing well, you are in my thoughts and prayers. ~Cathy~

Hi Blossom,
What a lovely surprise I had when I found out you had come by for a visit and want to follow my blog. I feel honored. I have been reading through your two blogs and have enjoyed my time.I love planning weddings, I planned both my daughters weddings and it was so much fun but also very stressful at times. You have a beautiful family, I was so sorry to read about your Mom. I am sure your memories and love for her will keep your hearts full of joy instead of sorrow. You will even find yourself smiling when you recall a loving moment or memory of her.
Have a wonderful day,
Elizabeth
