Here are some of the goodies I bought from our little shopping trip 2 weekends ago! This is a little dove dish that i love! I bought these cute little soaps to put in it that smell awesome and a rock that says Inspire. I cant get enough of those rocks that have words on them. I dont see them very often.

This pillow I actually bought at Target, so that dosnt count as being from a little cutsey shop does it? Its in their Shabby Chic area...I love that collection.
This light hangs in my living room above a chair. We got this from Ikea. That store rocks. Very affordable and lots of things for the home that are different. I like different things--things you wont see in everyone's home.
This little tea-light lamp gives off the prettiest glow at night. I bought this from a little store that specialized in dishes. Everything in that store was a "dont touch" price. I actually was afraid to look at this price expecting it to be in the hundreds like everything else. Surprisingly, this was only 25.00. Its going to be one of my favorite pieces this winter---a soft glowing light in the dining room. I picked up a small glass pitcher for cream or milk--and it was well over 200.00. So, not sure why this wasnt high priced--but thats ok--at least I could afford it and IF it were to ever break, I wont sob over the fact that it cost hundreds of dollars!

7 Thanks for your comments!:

I haven't been in Target for awhile since we don't have one here, but I love that I'll have to go to Target when I go to Las Vegas next month. It would be perfect in my guest bedroom. Cute light too.

A lot of our stuff is from IKEA. The quality of the materials they use though has decreased over the past few years. We bought an entertainment center a few years back and its really nice. Now though they have some that are THREE TIMES the price and they use terrible materials for them. Very strange.

That little tea light is very nice. We have little red glass holders for small candles on our mantle. Great for Halloween. :)

Hi Dawn:
I made the pumpkin bars tonight and I have to tell you, they are so good. I put them in the refrigertor that I have in the garage so I won't be tempted to eat too many. At least until the kids get here tomorrow night. lol.
