Some bargain shopping.

I just have to share some "pretties" that I found yesterday when I was out checking some of my favorite haunts & then this morning as I shopped for groceries.  First the goodies from yesterday.  The 2 rooster plates ($3.99 & $2.99) & the cute little artsy rooster ($3.99) are from Ross's, the green pitcher ($5.99) is from Marshall's, the earthy brown planter/urn ($4.99) is from Joanne's, & I already had the matching bird  from Michaels (on sale for less than $2).


This little guy just cracks me up.  I absolutely love the colors.


I was so surprised to find these plates.  The colors are so bright & clear & they were so cheap!




I have to confess that the chicken/rooster-thing is new to me, but seeing them on so many blogs had peeked my interest.  I guess now I'm officially hooked & have started a collection.  So with that in mind, my trip to Walmart this morning for "groceries" garnered a couple more things.  I've been gradually replacing some old & well-worn kitchen textiles;  so when I found these, I had to have them.  I love both sets, but the earthy colors are my favs.  I can see mixing the green/red set with some of my Christmas items.


Okay, this is my start-up collection of roostery-stuff!  I'm thinking this is going to be fun.


Had to do a bit of re-arranging of some vignettes in my kitchen to incorporate my newfound collection pieces.  What do you think?


This is my island re-do.  I love this plate.  It's called "Fruity Rooster!"  FYI, this layered candle is also from Walmart -- Mulled Cider/Cinnamon Sticks/Golden Apple -- & it smells incredibly good!


I made a couple of other purchases yesterday, but they are Christmas-related & I'm not ready to show any Christmas decor yet.  That doesn't mean I won't be buying items when I see them for good prices.  That would be borderline irresponsible, wouldn't it?

You should check out the nice give-away from Deserae at Peeking Thru The Sunflowers.  What a nice way to start the weekend.  And a big "thank you" to Kim at Savvy Southern Style for the heads-up regarding this give-away.  Then be sure to head on over to Susan's Tablescape Thursday.  Also linking to Laurie at Bargain Hunting with Laurie



Ya'll have a great weekend & stop back again soon.

I'm so glad you linked these great barggains to Favorite Things Sat., because it got me over here to see your fun blog! I love your finds, and I love your attitude. (I also feel it is irresponsible to not buy something if it's a good sale!) I've been a collector of roosters for so long that I was afraid they were going to go out of style. Love those square plates, and the color of that pitcher is beautiful. I also liked your pretty vignettes you created with your finds. Again, thanks so much for linking up. laurie
