I have been looking for one of these ceramic egg crates. I saw them on a blog (can't remember which one) and thought it was a clever idea to put jewelry in for daily use - easy to grab and go. There was a link to a site where it was, I think $12. I didn't want to spend the money at the time, but had regretted not getting it. I ended up seeing it online at Cost Plus World Market and for only $5.99! I happened to be by the store today and they had 2 left in white. Score!
Then, I went to Joann to use a gift card I got for Christmas. I bought some of the smaller letters (12 inch) for a project. I originally was going to get the larger ones. They were 23 1/2 inches - I decided they were way too big and I didn't think they were chunky enough.
Here are some cute mugs from Target. I almost got this Rome one since I was just there and it happens to be in the blue/aqua color I love. And that moped is too cute. But, I don't drink coffee and rarely use mugs, so I didn't get it. :(
This New York City one was cute too. I've been there as well and love the coral color. They also had a Miami and Paris one too. I thought about getting the whole set, but I've never been to Paris (yet) and still couldn't justify getting them since I don't use mugs. They were very hard to resist.
Another Target find - these canisters with chalkboard tags are so cool! I love the lid colors and anything chalkboard is a bonus! Didn't purchase these either, though.
It was a really good day and after being sick for 2 days, it was good to get out, but boy was I beat by the time I got home!
Can't wait to start some new projects for the new year and see what everyone else has in store!
