My heart went *pitter - patter*...

...when I realized I was going to have time
to go to my very favorite store
*Home Goods*
last week when I met my daughter to help
watch the grands at the hospital.
I had to leave early because I knew that was the
only chance I would get that day to shop and
since I had to drive two hours to meet her
I wanted to take full advantage of my time
in the city.

I had three things on my list...
a white wreath
a white ruffled bedspread
and new white dishes.

I had to shop fast and I was pleasantly
surprised to find all three in record time! :)

That is enough to make anyones heart go

pitter patter don't you think?

I purchased this ruffled spread in a twin size to use as a throw , tablecloth, etc. I haven't even taken it out of the package yet.

My new white dishes...love them, but I have a broken cup already. When I brought them home hubby said, "are they breakable" and I said *Yes*, but the beauty of that is there are always more white dishes out there." ha! I don't know if I broke it or if it was that way when I purchased it. I found it in the dishwater that way when I was washing them up. Being the clutz that I am it was probably me! I love how they incorporate both the round and the square shape.

Simply white.

Love all my white finds and my Home Goods store. {no I was not paid to say this.lol.}

Be sure and visit Kathleen over at Faded Charm for more WW posts. Many thanks to her for continuing to host this for all of us who are addicted to white. Blessings~

Ah Sandi ..we are all thinking alike .. I bought this bedspread 2 months back at Homegoods and last week finally took it out of the package and made my bed with it. It's so beautiful and really makes me feel so happy everytime I walk in my bedroom.

I have seen it mentioned on several other blogs lately ..one person even using it on their couch wrapping the bottom cushions with the ruffles falling down the front of it ..It's gorgeous that way too.

Love all your finds and I've been wanting to go to homegoods and wouldn't allow myself but I may have to sneek out tomorrow ..LOL !!

Have a Beautiful WW ...

Blessings ..Sara

Lucky u! I wish I had a Home Goods in my area. I have white square dishes like yours. I purchased them years ago and of course some are chipped or just broken but I love them.
Love the new comforter.

I love your white wreath! I wonder if Home Goods has it here, I'll have to check it out. I have a Home Goods a mile away and that can be really dangerous!!

Faded Charm said...

I love all three of your white purchases. I wish we had a Home Goods store here. Do they have a website?

I will delete your entry as soon as I get a chance...LOL.

You've talked me in to it, I need a trip to Home Goods (that took a lot of convincing didn't it)!!! Love everything, especially the bedspread!!!

Amy Kinser said...

That ruffled bedspread is gorgeous! Love that you would use it as a tablecloth.

The nearest HomeGoods store for me is a couple of hours away also so it is rare that I get to go. I do have TJ Maxx fairly nearby so that makes me happy.

Love all of your finds.

Nice to visit with you.

I must get to HG to try and score a ruffled bedspread. I think it will go perfect in my paris hotel suite for the summer!

Happy WW!
