Lots of flooding going on in Missouri, which is how we normally go home to Texas from Illinois.
To avoid the flooding, we decided to take the long way home. West to Iowa, Southwest to Kansas, and then down through Tulsa to Texas we drove. Luckily the route was close to Atchison Kansas, so we took a little detour there.
One of Nell Hill's stores is located in Atchinson. We were there waiting for the store to open at 10 on Saturday morning. As luck would have it, the store was having a 50% off Christmas decor sale.
The reindeer cloche and stand was less than $10. The metal holiday ornament signs were less than $3 each.
I bought two of the metal ornament signs--not to decorate with-- but to use as inspiration to make a wooden sign for the kitchen wall next year.
After I got them home and saw how cute they looked, I regretted not buying more to decorate a tree with.
The horse head hooks were not on sale, but I couldn't pass them up. I have been on a quest to find something similar for our bathroom hand towels to hang on and look forward to finally hanging them up.
I fell hard for this rejoice sign, which was considered Christmas decor and 50% off. I'm going to hang it up for a short while, even though Christmas has passed. The metal angel goes out to the front and the signage part has brackets to the right of the words, which is where it will attach to the wall. The colors are perfect for me, though I may paint the angel a different color so she will show up better.
The rooms at Nell Hill's store are set up with furniture in various room settings. In one area, there's a kitchen setting with a large chippy farm table that has a large old ladder hanging over it, taking the place of a chandelier. Three barn-type lights hanging from the ladder provide light over the table. I was smitten!
Rejoice!I think that will be my "word" for the year. I've downsized clutter, spent 6 months going to the gym almost daily, lost some weight by eliminating "white foods" from my diet...surely it's time for a little rejoicing this year!
Thanks for dropping by!
