A Shopping We Will Go ...

(*Yawn*) ... if it rains or continues to be cold and gloomy much longer, I am going to turn into a bear and hybernate for the remainder of winter!  Please wake me up when Spring arrives!

During this stretch of icky weather we've had lately, I've been shopping!  However, admittedly, my favorite stops have been a bit disappointing as they're all doing inventory and s-l-o-w-l-y restocking with Spring goodies. 

Here are snippets of a few fun things I've found:

A collection of natural decorative balls ... the textures are fabulous:

A beautiful cream/glazed rooster:

A fun, french clock that I splashed with green, metallic paint:

Spring daisies promising me that warmer temps are around the corner:

Vinyl labels that I embellished with my chalkboard paint:

A beautiful wood and wrought iron piece:

Potpourri that has sea shells mixed in with beautiful reds, golds and creams pieces!

And, lastly, a beautiful brown and gold container:

I'm off to "tweak" so that I may share where I placed my fun, new finds!  And, while I'm playing, I'll join my fun and super talented friend, Kara, for Whassup Wednesday.

Have a great day and stay warm,



  1. I am loving the snippet of the green clock. Where did you get the vinyl labels at?

  2. Where oh where did you find that clock??? It needed to come home with me! :-) I really have been looking for one like that and the only one I found that I liked was $50 and well...couldn't justify it! I'm so with you on the weather and we cracked up the other day when the sun peaked out and Lauren said, "dat sun is too bwight mama!" Bless her little NW heart! :-)
    Love all of your finds my friend and can't wait to see the results of your "tweaking"!

  3. I have a cream rooster and I love mine! I know what you mean by this "doom and gloom" weather, sooooo depressing...today I woke up under the weather so to speak so didn't get anything done. Looking forward to sunshine and spring!


  4. Becca, I am so over this gloomy wet cold weather, too. Love your finds. Cute roo and you are already enhancing the clock.

  5. Awesome finds Becca!! I feel for you guys with that nasty weather. Here in AZ its hot today its like 80 BLAH I am dreading when it gets to be a 100 and higher! Yuck!! Have a good day..


  6. What wonderful finds. I love them all. I can't wait to see what you do with them and where they end up. Great fun. Hugs, Marty

  7. Becca you always find the most perfect items for your home. Stunning! I adore the iron and wood piece. Gorgeousness. :)

  8. I love your rooster...can't wait to see where you "tweak" him. Stay warm...I won't even tell you that it's 80 degrees here today :)

  9. I love all your finds. They're all really pretty. Be sure to show us when you get them where you want them.

  10. Beautiful finds!! Can't wait to see where you're placing all of them...especially the clock.

    This weather has almost gotten the best of me! Sun came out yesterday and it was WonDerFul!! I was about to turn into Freddie Krueger...and that would not be pretty, especially with this full moon. We have a chance of rain & snow on Thursday so keeping my fingers crossed it doesn't arrive.

    Have a wonderful week!

  11. Look at you girl, I want to go shopping with you....great stuff there. Love the roo of course I would.

  12. I can't wait to see it all put together. I amtrying to get my house back together after the holidays with a NEW LOOK...it is coming along slooooowly. But I get to go shoppipng tomorrow and again next Monday(my birthday) so I may be sharing some cute finds too.


  13. Uuuhhh! FUN! I cant wait to see what you do with all your GREAT finds! I have a feeling you and I together shopping would do some MAJIOR DAMAGE!


  14. Oh, I want to go shopping with you!!! Love your finds.

  16. Great finds! Can't wait to see what you do with all the pretties! I also like to go shopping in this yucky weather - that way, if I get snowed in (or iced in), I will have some new decorative items to "play" with!

  17. Beautiful finds, Becca! I love the rooster! I hope you are having a great week!....hugs...Debbie
