Weekend Finds and Crafts

This weekend I found some time for a little shopping and crafting, two of my favorite things. Friday night I convinced Rob to go to Old Time Pottery. I could literally spend hours in this store. I didn't, of course, because I did have Rob with me. I found these cute ceramic pumpkins for less than $2 each and they are the perfect addition to my fall decorations.

And THEN I spotted this.....That's right, folks! The cutest lamp EVER for how much? Yup, $9.99. The PERFECT addition to our computer room/study (colors are green and brown). I love it!!!!
I also picked up some pillar candles for $1.99 each, which is the cheapest I have found pillar candles in forever. I really should go back and get some more.

On Saturday, I headed to Michaels while Rob raked leaves. Yes, I'm a lucky girl. :) I had to pick up some scrapbook paper and ribbon for some Christmas gifts that I'm making. I have some new candlesticks on my mantle that needed jazzed up a little. I used the pillar candles from Old Time Pottery along with scrapbook paper and ribbon and VOILA....

How much better do these candles look than just drab beige candles? I am amazed every day at what scrapbook paper can do!

And just an extra tidbit...Look what I found at Hobby Lobby...

That's right all you UA fans......houndstooth wrapping paper. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this yet, but it is too awesome to wrap gifts with! ;)

If you are wondering, I did pick up some things for Christmas but I can't show them because people might see their own gifts. I'll post those projects after Christmas! I love these kinds of weekends! :)
