Santa Baby: Great $20 gift find!

I know ceramic garden stools have been around for some time now.


I always oh and ah when I see them in magazines, but


I’ve yet to bite the bullet and pick one up for my self.


I’ve seen them at numerous price points from ridiculously expensive to a steal at Homegoods.

Today though I found some at even better than a steal!

Available at Big Lots and only $20! I went and checked them out. They are perfect and sturdy. A total must buy. Talk about a wow gift for a secret Santa exchange.



Did I get one? No, I walked away empty handed thinking maybe there are just too many of them out there to be unique. But now as I was getting images for my post I realized how much I do like them. So, guess who is going back tomorrow to snag a white one.


I hope you are all having an enjoyable weekend. I’m about to get ready for a Christmas fete I have this evening. The theme was Christmas Balls.  I have two outfits to pick from a black short mini dress or a sequined leopard number. Both total impulse buys from today. Either way I’m going to be rocking some red lipstick! I’ll talk pics and report back on Monday.


FYI: Jon is in the shop trying to rig some LED lights to his outfit! I’ve already heard an Oops from there so we’ll see how things go.


Enjoy all the GIVE-AWAYS!

Those stools are adorable. I say for $20 it's a must-have. Too bad I don't have a Big Lots around here.

I saw the metallic one on Wysteria I think and if i had the money (for shipping, let alone the whole item) it would be mine by now.

$20?!?! I thought I was getting one for a steal when I bought my West Elm one on sale for a little over $100. My advice: buy two!

First of all, I am glad you are going back to get one. Who cares if they are all over the place? What makes it special is the way you will use it and the statement it makes in your space!

And secondly, I cannot wait to see your party outfit! Please post pictures soon!

Ooh...I love Big Lots! There's one near my place at the beach and it is where I found most of my decor. It looks great and costs little so I don't have to obsess about what happens when we rent the house to our guests.

If I were there now, I would by 2 of these! (I like things in pairs)

ooo, I am an admirer of the garden stool too. I can't believe the deal at Big Lots. I have absolutely no place for one of these cuties, but I feel an uncontrollable need to visit Big Lots and buy a few, just because I don't want to "miss out". ;)

I say, if you like it, go for it! Who cares if it's not unique if it makes you happy. I picked up a white one at HomeGoods over the summer for $40 and thought it was a good deal. At $20 it's a must!!
