Good Finds

I was minding my own business watching Basketball wives and saw Shauney O'Neal eating from a bowl that took my heart. I searched high and low for this bowl and nothing. Well my son had a basketball tournament last weekend far far away, and bam. There they were in Marshalls. I love these bowls. And at only $7.99 a piece. Talk about conversation piece while eating some pasta.

My other great find. Tarjay of course. I have wanted the Thomas Obrien duvet (below) for a hot minute. Sold out at all the stores and online. I did not want to pay $80 for it so I left it, and left it. Sad because I really wanted it. Well one day after my sons game I was alone and stopped by a neighboring Tarjay. There is was..$19.99---I looked at it and said

“If you don’t get yourself in this cart”…the rest is herstory.

Any good finds for you? Has anyone seen these bowls? I would like more.

High Fives & Hugs,

So I have seen that bowl and was wondering what people did with it. LOL. Joking. Will you be donning it with pasta?

The TO duvet is is my list as well. I think it may still be available around here. It reminds me of the Cocoozy throw. Both are nice.

I think of all the brands in Tarjay TO is by far the one I like best.

OK!!! These are similar to the bowls that I wanted from Crate & Barrell (a good while back) but those were $20 each & I wasnt spending that! I LOVE THEM!! Now you're gonna make me go to Marshalls to look for these damn bowls! TODAY!

Girl you crazy! I talk to a few things of mine like that too! Like a missing shoe, earring or clutch when I find it! "You've been hiding from me"!!

LOL!

Glad you're happy with your new FINDS!

Those are some really great finds! I have been holding off on buying coffee + end tables because I wanted something with color instead of the usual wood hues. I recently found a great coffee table + 2 end tables on craigslist for $50 and am painting them now to match the paintings I made this past fall! I am so amped because the wood is high quality so I know it will last a long time :)

Hello!! The bed is looking all kinds of AWESOME!!!! Love that bowl too but if I bring ONE MORE WHITE BOWL into the house? Seriously, it wouldn't be pretty.

yes..i saw these bowls at home goods..i love marshalls white bowls and platters though. I'm currently obsessed with this one at crate and barrel. I want a large and small one. I figured that it'd be great for candy and such at a dinner party

I saw these bowls at my local Marshall's today. They are very eyecatching. The comforter warms my heart and especially with that price tag. Sometimes it pays to wait.
