Saturday Shopping with Me and My Friends #10

Welcome to Saturday Shopping at this Small House

I don’t know about you but shopping is just more fun with friends. I love to see what they like. I don’t know about you but I find things to add to my cart each week.

Going on Vacation

We are heading to California at the end of this month to celebrate our son’s and new daughter-in-law’s wedding. It’s going to be a fun weekend meeting our new in-laws and toasting to the new couple.

I need some new clothes that are both comfortable and casual but fun for the festivities.

  • I found two dresses that are flowy and fun and can be dressed up or down. I can also wear them through the rest of the spring/summer. You can find them HERE and HERE.
  • New shoes are also in order. I need something a little dressy and these wedges will be perfect. I also need some great walking shoes and I love Keds gym shoes.
  • Have you heard of Quince? I love this shopping spot. They have everything from clothing to vintage-inspired rugs. It’s high-quality, high-end items at affordable prices, and it’s all sustainably sourced and made. I love this leather tote that will be perfect for travel. I have a pair of lounge pants from Quince that I live in!
  • Most of my jewelry was either lost or stolen when we were traveling for Annie’s wedding so I’m treating myself to a new bracelet and earrings.

What My Friends Are Loving

Anna – Sky Lark House

  • Have you heard of FiFi O’Neill? She is a talented designer and writer who just published a new book entitled The Romantic Home. This book is so inspiring.
  • Now that the weather has been slowly getting warmer, Mr. SLH and I have been walking about 3 miles in the evening almost every day. These are my favorite shoes to wear. They are comfortable, supportive, and cute.
  • I saw this marble dish at Target and had to buy it! It was only $30 and is perfect for the coffee table.
  • This is my favorite sweater to wear in the spring. It’s a fine gauge knit so that it’s not too hot but keeps you warm on chilly spring days. Since it was less than $25 and comes in an array of colors, I bought two.

Cindy – Reinvented Delaware

My mom and I were at our local Walmart recently and found the most comfy pj’s on the planet! I started wearing Joyspun jammies last year and I love this brand so much. All of the pieces I’m sharing are under $20! I’m still trying to choose which pajamas to purchase, but here are the ones currently in my cart!

Diane – South House Designs

This week’s shopping list is all over the place, kind of like how my week has been.

  • Recently I shared the most amazing terra cotta pots. From the same amazing store, JSH Home Essentials, comes this adorable wrapping paper. I’m obsessed! It comes in a pack of four sheets. I’m going to turn one sheet into some mounted artwork.
  • Sun tea season is here — hallelujah! And I finally found a great pitcher to replace the one that broke last year (after 30+ years). Two signifiant, but simple asks: 1) a lid to secure the tea bags (no more rubber bands and saran wrap) 2) a wide mouth for easy, thorough cleaning + dishwasher safe. Oh, and I want glass, a sturdy handle, and stylish. I love this one, PLUS it comes in three styles to choose from. And super reasonable price.
  • These bookshelves are at the top of my list for our book-loving granddaughter due in August. In this family, she has no choice but to be a book-lover! These are a bit better priced than you’ll find in standard retail shops. And they are handmade with great attention to detail by a small US business on Etsy. And also from Etsy, this amazing set of six stacking, flexible dinosaurs! What kid wouldn’t flip over these?
  • Have you heard of Nathan James, yet? They have a West Elm aesthetic with IKEA price tags! I wish I was in the market for outdoor furniture. I’d be all over this set. And these coffee tables and two of these nightstands, please! And more and more.

Lora – Lora Bloomquist

  • The birds are building their nests outside my window and I can’t get enough of decorating with them inside! Whenever I spy a decorative bird figure, it usually needs to come home with me. Whether it’s when I’m thrifting or at the target dollar spot, I mix and match different varieties together and tuck them all over the house. HERE are some of my favorites, both old and new. (And follow me while you’re there, too;)
  • I’ve got a stack of thrifted plates in colors to match our bedroom wallpaper. I’m going to hang them in a creative display around the mirror. These easy hangers will make it so much easier than using old-fashioned plate hangers.
  • Vintage umbrellas are a fun find and make a statement in your decor. Especially in the rainy Spring, it’s fun to open them up and prop them in a vignette. You can find vintage umbrellas HERE.
  • Pretty, old frames are always a happy find; they can be used in so many ways in decor. I love to have several varieties of THIS handy product on hand to refresh them. It comes in several different colorways and is so helpful for quick fixes.

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 house businesses.

Peace and Love,
