At least in the decor shops it has. Yesterday I spent the day with my mom and sister for a fun day of shopping and lunch together to celebrate my mom's upcoming birthday next week. We don't get together as often as we would like to because this thing called life gets in the way. We enjoy getting together and laughing and even crying together depending on what we are talking about and discussing what is going on in our lives. Everyone should spend time with the people that we can have fun with or vent to when needed. Not good to hold all that in.
I found this great store close to my home at the Mall Of Georgia for those Georgia girls who are close enough to shop there. This store opened last summer and I did not find it until the fall. This store is huge and so full of eye candy and super deals on most everything. They even have a seventy percent off room in the back! I didn't find anything in it I wanted or needed, but my sister took home a couple of treasures she found. Now, the thing with my sister though, shhh don't tell her I am posting about her, is she will buy things and find a place for them and keep it out for a while and then she changes her mind about it or finds something else to put in it's place and the other new piece is shipped off down to the basement grave of all her other cast offs. People I'm not talking about just a few things! Why no, she has boxes and boxes stacked up of stuff that may come out for a second life in her home or it gets carried off to the consignment store in hopes of finding a new life in another home that will love it. I know she will read this and kill me for telling her secrets. Sis you know I love you!!
Here are some pictures of some eye candy in this great big store so enjoy!
This is the outside entrance and they set all these goodies to entice you to come on in.
Look at this cute bird cage thing. Such a cute piece that just exudes spring and summer. This would be cute on a porch or in a sun room.
This is a cute hat stand with a bird perched on top. Very reasonable price, I think.
They had this perched on a bench outside. Really pretty colors and only $5.99! I also like the weathered look of the bench.
This store carries furniture, too. Lot of the Belgium or Swedish looking pieces, but very affordable.
I love this white crackled finish bowl. It comes in three different sizes and all under twenty dollars.
Here's for you tablescaping lovers. This was so pretty with the vibrant colors of the dishes on the black table.
I love the tiered piece for the centerpiece.
Look at the beautiful color of this pottery. The teapot with the bird on it is so cute. I liked the matching cake stand, too.
My sister and I both loved these. I thought of the cloche party at Marty's at a Stroll Thru Life when I saw these. The possibilities of these are endless.
Another cute item to join a cloche party.
They have so much pottery. Just makes you want to start playing in the garden and adding those spring items to your home.
Love the unusual shape of this cloche.
More and more cloches and candle sticks.
This picture did not turn out clear, but look at all these dishes you dish people.
I loved the pattern and color of this bowl. At $2.99 I may have to go back and get these.
Beautiful colors on these canisters. This is the new color of the year, I hear.
Cute bunnies for an Easter table.
These lamps have been in all the decor and design mags and books and even on blogs this year. This one is solid wood and very affordable at $99. I have seen them for a lot more than that.
Lots of clocks for you clock lovers and a lot cheaper than Ballard's and other stores, but with the same look.
Well, that is all the pictures I took before my batteries died on me. I am not use to taking pictures when I shop and I am sure some people were looking at me like I was some fool. Just part of blogging, I guess. All in a days work. We went to Pottery Barn, too and found a couple of sell items there.
This olive oil jar look alike was marked down to $18.99 from $39.99
It just said country French to me and had to come home with me.
Sister bought one, too.
This is the piece that I bought from the first store and I added the succulents and moss to it.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the shopping trip and you Georgia gals really need to check this place out. They also have a lot of florals and greenery that I did not get pics of. There is also a florist there that will make you a custom arrangement for way less than I have seen at other places. So if your in the Buford, Ga. area check out this store. You won't be sorry!
I appreciate you letting me know you came by.
Everyone have a super weekend!! Weather is great here finally!
Y'all come back now,
