Made a lot of progress...

Yesterday and guess what I did! Went out and bought more stuff! LOL

Actually, every Friday I love to go to this store we have called "Burke's Outlet" because they have a "Friday Club" and you can get an additional 15% off your purchase. It's just fun to plunder around there. It's like a much smaller version of a TJ Maxx or Marshall's. I have really found some amazing deals in there. LOTS of neat stuff from there for my gift closet! :)

Anyhow, yesterday I was able to get a Callaway golf visor for Jeff for $3.00!! Which was a STEAL b/c normally those are about $25.00. He has Callaway golf clubs, so now he is all coordinated. Which I am soo sure he appreciates. LOL

They also had some candle holders that I had been eyeing for Maddie's room for 50% off that go PERFECTLY with her room redo and I also found some super cute maryjanes by Skechers for school for her. I got all this for less than $30! Normally just ONE pair of the shoes are more than that!

Oh and I am trying to be better about taking pics so I took one of my stash. There actually six candleholders but I only took a pic of 3 of them.


I was also able to get a super cute candlebra that I wanted to put on my mantle for $10 at Belk's but it's too wide so it now sits on my coffee table. I really like it though and am thinking about going back and getting a couple more to give as gifts. I thought at Christmas it would really festive to put Christmas bulbs in place of the wicker orbs.

Anyhow, what do you think? Good gift idea??


Oh and I redid my mantle yesterday after the candles didn't work. I feel like it's missing something. I need some ideas! Maybe sconces on the sides of the clock?? I dunno, give me some ideas ladies!

If you have a mantle, I would love to see what you have on it. Maybe I need some more color or something? Oh and I promise my mantle is not lopsided, it's me! LOL

Any ideas are appreciated! :)
