Treasures From The Past Week

My friend Kele and I went to The Nutcracker Market over the weekend. It is local tradition put on by The Houston Ballet. I have been for the last 3 years and it is always so much fun.
This year even though we got there in time for opening it was packed. Normally we have an hour or so before it gets busy to enjoy shopping without all the hustle and bustle.
There is always lots of eye candy. Last year I was able to get more pictures but this year there were just too many people. 
I loved this hanging basket lantern light.
 Kele and I agreed that this year there were way too many clothing booths and not enough home decor booths. We go mainly for the home decor. With that being said 
I managed to find me some new flops. 
Those who know me personally know I wear flops all year long. I was not even looking for any but a booth an isle over had plopped a pile of flops down at the register and I spied what they were doing out of the corner of my eye. I ran right over and the booth owner said she was putting them on special because the larger sizes do not sell as well. I wear an 11 in flops which are normally super hard to find so it was my lucky day. 
I loved these because they are bright and cheery and the design goes all the around the flop. Flops normally run $40 and up because I buy Yellow Box so $25 for these was a steal in my book. I will probably save them for the spring. 
As far as home decor goes I was on the hunt for little things to accessorize with. I found this cute snowy birds nest and tiny hanging basket. You have to be careful and shop smart because this little basket was actually $2 less a few isles over at another booth. We weren't smart!;) 
This was my big purchase for the day. I fell head over heals for it instantly and knew I had to bring it home. It was a great price at only $40. I am thinking it will become the centerpiece for my holiday dining display.
All in all it was a great day of shopping and girl time plus I came home with $$!;)

Speaking of treasures, I received some new goods for the shop!
I had ordered this metal clip holder way back in August and it was back ordered. I actually forgot all about it till a box showed up on my porch.

I also received some cute metal frames that had  been back ordered as well.

Head on over to the shop if you have been eyeing anything. I am offering $10 off any order $65 or more. Just enter code Holiday2012 at check out. If you order anything between now and Thursday your order will ship this week. All orders placed between 11/16-11/24 will be shipped out starting on 11/26!:) I am taking a break during the week of Thanksgiving to be with family.
