Snow Days = Fun Finds

Last week we got 3 snow days in a row, heck yes!. I could have used that time to get ahead in my lesson planning or work on grad school homework, but how much fun would that have been?

I agree.

As I began to go a little stir crazy, we, ok I, decided that we should head out to the mall and do some shopping. It was cold and the roads weren't the best, but that didn't stop us from picking up a couple of fun finds.

I tweeted about these adorable mini garden stool-esque oil warmers at Bath and Body Works and I couldn't help but pick up one for myself. Most warmers are not my style at all, but these I could totally get into to!


I also picked up a pineapple mango candle {my fav} because of the silver holder I could use with it.


I normally only buy the wallflowers because I just do not like the appearance of candles, but now because of the little silver holder, I was sold! Way to go Bath and Body Works!

And, I almost bought this little lady, but didn't for some reason. How I walked away from chevron, I'll never know!
After the mall we hit up World Market and I walked away with some great finds. I absolutely adore their wrapping paper selection. If you have never checked it out, you totally should. I picked up this cherry blossom paper and gift box. I don't have specific plans for either, but the print was too pretty to pass up. On a previous trip I picked up a different pattern that I'm also crazy about!


I also grabbed a couple of napkins with intentions of pillow making!


Mom, are you listening? Get that sewing machine ready.

It was funny, because the cashier said, "These would be so cool as pillows!" She was pleasantly surprised when I told her those were my plans.

As I was just about to checkout I spotted this floor pillow that was calling my name for Miss. Scoutie Bear.


I scooped it up and she's already given it her seal of approval. I took this pic on my phone when I woke up and she was all sprawled out right before I clicked. She jumped up, repositioned, and posed too cute. I just love that little lady-she almost looks a little mad because I woke her up!


And those close out our fun finds. I didn't plan on any of them, but sometimes those are the best kind!

I especially love that floor pillow--I may have to get one or two for our cat, woods!

Thanks for sharing :)

Courtney@SDB said...

Oh, I am soooo going to B&BW to look for that warmer today!

Liz @ It's Great To Be Home said...

How funny, I literally had those same placemats in my hands in the checkout with plans to make them into pillows - why oh why did I put them back?!?

Catherine said...

Oh I totally agree, World Market's wrapping paper is THE BEST! I didn't see the pretty cherry blossom paper last time I was there... I will have to head back and see if I can get my hands on some!

Can't wait to see the pillows :)

You always spot chic things I'd have overlooked. Further proof I need you as a shopping buddy. How 'bout it? I can promise you good humor the whole way (until you get sick of me & "accidentally" leave me at the food court).

Scout's all, Do you MIND?! Such a diva.

Hi Joi - I love your site. I was wondering where you got the 'this is life' print behind your new (and super cute) oil warmer
