This morning I headed out for a trip to Hobby Lobby (Luuuuv this store). All I wanted was some scrapbook paper, and that's it, nothing else I promise! But oh my, they were having a sale, 50 & 60 % off selected Home Accents. They were also having 80% off Christmas, BUT, once Christmas is over I have a hard time shopping for next year. Am I the only one like that? If I buy something, I want to use it NOW. Anyway, back to my haul.
I only needed 4 sheets of Leopard print scrapbook paper for a project that I hope to show you tomorrow. But, for some reason, when I get in that store the creative juices start flowing and I have a hard time containing myself! I ended up getting 4 extra sheet, which were 50% off, and plan to use them for an up coming Valentine project.
The "puffy" paper mache' hearts were $.99 each and the package of wooden hearts were 4 to a package for $.99. I will show you what I do with these later!
I love dark red, such as a brick red, and leopard print together, so I picked up some paint to help me out with the project I'm working on right now.
The next items in my haul are a little unique. Back in July, before we moved here, I was supposed to be looking for a house but took time out to visit my future Hobby Lobby store. That's important, right?! Well, I found something I really liked but didn't know what it was supposed to be and it was on clearance for $.70. It is made of metal and kind of looks like a vintage plate that goes behind a door knob. Maybe? I don't know, but knew I could find the perfect place for it in our new house, which we hadn't found yet. And I did!
Today, I found two more, and even though I had to pay $1.70 for each of them, a collection of 3 is always good. These were regular $4.99
I love this wire basket and it was a steal at $4.80, I'm not sure about the original price but it was on the 60% off isle.
I love this next piece. I was originally $39.99 and I picked it up today for $13.80. I am all about "chippy" paint and this doesn't disappoint!
