Saturday Shopping with Me and My Friends #7

Welcome to Saturday Shopping at this Small House

It’s the third Saturday of the month and I’m shopping with my friends! I never know what they are going to share so it’s always a surprise for me. They also share things that end up in my cart too!

While I do not do much decorating for Valentine’s Day, I found a few things that I might get to make the day special.

These are the things that I have in My Cart This Week

  • I found these fun heart ice cube trays at William Sonoma and thought that the heart alone or maybe a fruit-flavored heart ice cube could elevate any drink for Valentine’s Day.
  • This pink etched glassware has been something I’ve loved for some time now. How pretty would it be on a Valentine’s Day Tablescape?
  • While I’m not sure “Handy” would appreciate it, it might be fun to have a frilly romantic duvet for our bed. It would transition well into the spring and even the summer.
  • Another thing that can transition well from Valentine’s Day into spring is faux tulips. They make them so real-looking and they can be used longer than real.

What My Friends Are Loving

New year, new beginning, new outlook. And as I am finishing tucking away all the holiday finery, I’m looking at our home with fresh eyes. And there are some specific spots that need (and deserve) some help!

  • Starting with the kitchen and dining area. With the whole clan here for almost a week, these two areas of our home put in their time providing great meals and a comfy setting for games, conversation, and more. I think they deserve some love starting with these gorgeous sleek canisters. that have stolen my heart. With these sweet scoops to go with the canisters.
  • To up the pantry organization a notch, I NEED these cord wranglers for sure.
  • And then for all-purpose serving and decor, I think this round, handled marble serving board would be on the constant reshuffle, serving nibbles, and then as a centerpiece tray, then as a backdrop against the backsplash. Can’t you see that centerpiece with a couple of these candle holders and this sweet faux potted plant and a charming handcrafted piece like this bowl?
  • I can’t forget table linens! Love these new chambray placemats for Spring’s arrival — great quality at a great price! I can’t go wrong with these white napkins (hemstitched and 20″). And how about “fun” napkins too.
  • And one more goodie I’ve been wanting — a brushed gold cocktail shaker!

I hope that you enjoyed shopping with us today!

If you made a purchase, please know that we all appreciate it as it helps in a small way to support our small businesses.

Peace & Love,
