After Christmas Finds With My Gift Cards!

Yesterday, my ex (trying not to be an ex anymore) and I went shopping for some after Christmas sales. Not all sales were that great but I did find some cute things with the gift cards I got for Christmas! I have to say one of my favorite stores is TJ Maxx. You can find some really nice things for so little money! Here's a few cute finds that I purchased with my gift card.

These pillows are so soft. They are filled with down. I even love the little ties in the back. I got two down pillows covered in beautiful quilt shams in baby blue.



Then I found this obnoxiously pink frame! It was discounted to $6.99. There was a black one as well but that was $9.99. The pink was probably discounted because it was so obnoxiously bright but I love it! Now, I have no idea what to do with it. Ha! :) By the way, that isn't my Cockatoo in that picture but have you ever seen picture frames in the store with the most beautiful black and white photos in them that you just wanted to keep those photos in the frames? I've done that before, I ADMIT! However, they were scenery pictures and not of people. Leaving strangers in picture frames is just a little much for me and kinda sad like I don't know enough people to put in frames. Hehe!



Hope you are all relaxing now that the holidays are over!

Great pillows and I like the frame too!

I don't have the patience for TJ Maxx or Marshalls at all but I know you can get some great stuff there.

Is your ex making any progress ;-)

I'm not much on shopping. Our T.J. Maxx is so disorganized that I rarely go in there. You found some great buys. The pink is a little bright, but the bird picture looks great in the frame.

I loved Goody's... but it just closed.

We drove around all afternoon and I'm tired. I took lots of pictures and now have to find the energy to process them :-)

Zaroga,

Well, let's just say he's been on his best behavior. During this snow storm he came and picked me up and drove me around everyday to where I needed to go. Then he has been dropping me off at the front doors of stores and then parking....then got my two kitties toys. He's been enduring shopping with me without one complaint. He's been doing very well for the last two weeks. :)

I can't wait to see your pictures!

Lovely pillows you've got there! I personally could do with more pillows in my home.

Love those pillows, but yeah, hmmm, not sure about that pink frame. Pink isn't my color, well, not that pink.
Glad you had fun, I love gift cards too. The best store I love to go to is called an outlet. LOL
I go to Williams Sonoma outlet and I'm in blisssss

Great finds Michelle! I hope that you had a wonderful holiday!

PS . . . I have had my dough come out hard from time to time . . their are a million reasons why. . . yeast too old, water too hot, or too much flour . . . Happy cooking!

Heather said...

Michelle, I love TJ Maxx too.. My house if filled with finds from there.. there are actually 3 that are close enough to my home to shop away. The comment you made about the pics in frames at the store tickles me. I had a friend that use to keep the people in the frame and tell everyone that they were his family..lol..I can't believe others think about it. my sister and I joke everytime we go out. Love your finds,,enjoy your weekend.. tracey

mMy daughter loves TJ Max, I will have to give it a try. We have one in the next town.

My cat is about 13yrs and I don't have the money to take it to a pet eye doctor. (didn't even know there was such) Anyway, vet says it's permanent but that she will adjust. I am trying to keep her routine and let her know when it's night and day. That might help her better. :)

Gotta love that T J Maxx....you never know what treasures you will find there. Those pillows are to die for...love the shades of blue. Love your furry friend. Have you seen my Siamese? Kathleen

Those pillows would look great in Sea Cottage. I think I have the middle one(from Target though). I just can't ever have enough pillows and throw quilts. Like stationary, I want to buy every pretty piece that I see.

Teresa R said...

Terrific pillow finds!! Thanks for taking pics because I'm about to make some pillow covers and was wondering how I want to close them, so I'm going to try ties...at least for one of them.

As for the pink frame, well, ya know, to each her own, and it's very lucky you love it! 8)
