I love finding treasures to freshen things up around the house...and it is amazing what can be found for way less then $20.
The candles came from a blow out sale at a Smith & Hawken store in the neighborhood and after discount I got them for $12.00.
The small bird paperweight is from Pier 1, $7.95. The same source for the tea light.
These happy dish towels came from A & P (!) and are just the thing needed in my kitchen. $ 3.99 a double pack. Hard to beat!
Cute flip flops for my daughter at Pier 1, $ 6.95, they are available in Kelly green and hot pink as well, and you could get matching polka dotted woven straw totes for $14.95
Gorgeous azaleas now on my window ledge and going to live in my garden for long: $ 6.50 at the local market.
Fresh flowers from Trader Joe's $6.50!
I did not actually buy these, but they all would fit right in my scheme...
Right in time for the Easter bunny: egg crate from Anthropologie $14.00.
Spring scented magnolia candle $18.00
New favorite tea cup $10.00
This list could go on...
You do not have to break the bank to get some small lovely things, which will bring a breeze of fresh air into your house and lift your spirits at the same time. And it will last much longer then the small investment might suggest!
