A little Retail therapy...

After the week I had, my Plan was to stay in bed all day watching old movies
with my Bingee. But then at noon I remembered there was an Estate auction
in King that we wanted to check out so we started there... Then we went to Costco
and Home Goods where I found these cute little Soaps on ropes. You know what
a sucker I am for soap on a rope... And these Frog princes were a must have!

Marshall's was our next stop where I found these Beautiful cake plates. I cannot tell
you how ready for Spring I am... I miss my trees and Flowers so much I can barely
stand it. I woke up this morning Thinking about wandering around our favorite
Garden shop in bright sunlight picking out all sorts of Lovelies to fill the
planters out on the deck. Of course, these are not my usual first waking
thoughts, however, since I woke up to someone Watching his gardening
shows I guess I owe, or can blame it on P. Allan Smith! Any way,
speaking of Spring... I found a little spring at Marshall's today!

Flowers, butterflies and Lady bugs. Lady bugs... Oh, my!

There were three different Designs so I
bought two of each to Build my own set!

I love them all! They are delicate and Pretty, and I can't wait to
bake something Light and spring-like just to use them!

Oh, and next to the Butterflies, lady bugs, flowers and feelings of spring these
plates inspire...The Best part is the price and the fact that they're Lenox too!

I also cleaned up on Spanish saffron today!

My new Spring plates deserve to have me bake a
zesty Lemon cake so I picked up this loaf pan too!

Speaking of baking... I felt bad about ruining the Blueberry crumble
muffins I attempted to make him last week so on the way home
I picked up a muffin mix. It won't be the same as my from-
scratch blueberry Crumble muffins, but if you won't tell...

Neither will I!

Time for a Costco-throw-together dinner! They were demo'ing fresh
(not frozen) chicken Pot stickers there today, and they smelled great! I say
smelled great instead of tasted great because the kid demo'ing them was too
busy chatting up the young girl leaned up against the Cooler door next to him
to actually have any ready to taste. When I inquired about his pot Stickers, he
told us that since he Forgot to turn on his electric Skillet, it would, be a while...

At least he was able to tell me where to Find them!

And let me tell you... They taste as Good as they smelled cooking at Costco!

Now that his Muffins are done I can have my dinner!

Yup! They look like, from-Scratch to me!

  1. So man ylovelies all in one post! I adore those bunnies on a rope. So darn cute.

    And the lemon Nordic Ware pan- oooh! I saw it online awhile back but never saw any in stores. A loaf of that would be pretty on your lemon cake stand from Sur La Table. I'm gonna have to hit up Marshalls soon!

    Pot stickers- be still my heart. Love them! I want to make my own but who knows when that will be. I'll have to settle for Costco's for now. Are they with all the refrigerated meals?
