weekend nesting

Since it rained yesterday and a beach day was out of the question I did some errands and shopping. I could wander around HomeGoods for hours. And I did. I have really been wanting a white pitcher for flowers for a long time. I like how simple they look. Very pretty. So I found this one for $10 and a set of four quilted placemats for $10. My guy isn't a fan of placemats on the table...he likes the plain wood but he might like it when he sees them. We'll see!

I also got this very cute red ceramic pie dish and wire "caddy" for $10. I got home and made myself a blueberry pie. One of my favorites. I tried a Trader Joes crust and wasn't as happy with it as I thought I'd be. It didn't come out flaky...a little soft. Almost like it needed to be baked longer but that didn't help either. Not sure why. I think it's the first thing from there I haven't been 100% satisfied with...
At HomeGoods I also found these adorable little cards I plan to use as invites when I host Girl's Night in July...


They are vintage-like images of Barbie. I love them! Today I get to see my girls for lunch and the movies. We were supposed to go to the beach originally...but

alas...

today isn't a beach day either! Oh well.

Happy Sunday!

I haven't been to Home Goods in ages. I agree, it's a store that easily lends it self to wandering. Love the pitcher and cards.

I love the pitcher! I guess I need to find a Home Goods one of these days... ;) How are the placemats working out?

Hope you get to the beach soon! Dig your toes in the sand for me...

HUGS!

I know how you feel. Last weekend my husband and I went to Cape Cod, and it rained most of the time we were there. Hopefully this weekend the weather will cooperate, and we'll get a beach day!

There is something so simple yet so incredibly beautiful about a vase of flowers. I have some pink Canterbury bells on the mantle and every time I walk by them, they cheer me so much. I'm hoping next year my garden will be more mature and I can make lots of my own bouquets.

Don't feel bad about not keeping up with the challenge. You tried, and if it didn't work, that's OK!
