...a little Random Shopping ♥ ♥ ♥

I love some of the cute things

It's a store that if you find something you like,
you had better buy it because when they are out
of certain items,
they may never stock them again..

I was online the other day and went to  their web site...
saw a pumpkin pillow and FELL IN LUV !
Of course, they had sold out so I went on a HUNT...  

We have 3 or 4 here in Lubbock and I went to all of them today...
I FOUND THE PILLOW at the last one...YAY !!! little BEATLE car in light turquoise is the pillow
I used on my bench in the dining room......

I just love this cute  pillow...
and it was only $12...
no zipper, tho....and I am trying to buy just the covers...
Oh, well...
(another pillow won't take up too much room....
I'm pretty sure I have a "pillow fetish" 😍
This enchanted pumpkin looks cute on 
The Bench That Bill Built !!!

I didn't buy these from Big Lots
but they came in the mail today from VERMONT STORE...
...can you even
guess what I will do with them..?
 absolutely LOVE gum drops.

All my friends know how much I adore signage...

I saw this cutie pie at
and it wouldn't take NO for an answer and leaped into my cart....

THE NERVE of some signs.....

See how cute it looks with my coffee/chocolate bar...'s the little things....

Who knew that LIFESAVERS looked THIS cute ???

from Big Lots...
they really do have some cute things...
you just have to swing by and take a look at what they have.
I love that store.

I'm not sure if I told you or not....

I had all my upper teeth pulled and just take a look at these amazing dentures !!

I am sooo proud of them.
Mr. Sweet kept telling me 
"when you have it done, you will wonder why you waited so long." 

I just had them pulled last Friday and they put the new ones right in...
very sore...but no pain...
they are a bit too big and dentist says to wait 2 weeks
 (time for all the swelling to go down )
and they will make another one..

LOVE to all of you, bj


  1. You can always use the pumpkin pillow with other covers. I do that, but sometimes I forget where the real pillow is and it's a search!

  2. Love the pumpkin pillow . . .
    And the turquoise VW bug . . .
    And that SMILE . . . wonderful . . .
    Happy for you bj . . .

  3. I love the stuff at Big Lots. I like all the cream and torquise they have on display this year. It’s a change from all the orange and browns seen in the fall.
    Love your smile!

  4. Lucky girl... pretty pillows, gum drops and a new smile:) You looks AMAZING! Enjoy your day dear B.J. HUGS!

  5. You find the best things! Your smile is beautiful and always has been. 😁 All the best with the healing process. You’re a brave one!

  6. Those pillows are adorable. And I know what you mean about Vermont country store -- they're the best!

  7. The pumpkin pillow is so cute. Great photos. Love the smile on your face and the new upper dentures. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  8. You are just full of surprises. So far I still have all my teeth except two jaw teeth. Your dentures look really nice. Most problems is getting them to fit right and getting used to them. You will do just fine tho.

  9. Your shopping trip looks like it was fun! I love to find little goodies like that here and there.

    Your teeth are so pretty! My mom has full dentures and has had them for a long time. She didn't have dental care and her teeth weren't great...she was always having pain of one sort of another. They pulled all her teeth and she loves her dentures.

  10. Good Morning BJ . . . you really did find some lovely things for your home. I'm a nut for pillows, too :) They are just a sweet way to add a little charm and character to a room without nails in the walls or any permanent construction. Nice on the purse strings, too :) You have plenty to smile about and you have a beautiful new smile.
    Keep Smiling . . . I know you will.
    Connie :)

  11. Now I need an excuse to go to Big Lots. I need birdseed and that is just next door to Big Lots. Love your new dentures.
    Keep smiling.

  12. BJ, You look fabulous. One day I may have to tell my dentist I am sick of throwing good money after bad. I have my teeth , I get x-rays and cleanings every six months. and I have pain at times. So sad. I love the pillows. I did see the cute pumpkin things at Big Lots. Being chic and stylish doesn't mean you have to spend big bucks. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  13. Your teeth are just beautiful! The pillow is adorable. So nice to visit with you today, BJ!

  14. You look great - beautiful smile!! GUMDROPS are my fav candy (but my body doesn't like them very much!!) When I see them at the store I have to walk by quickly!! Cute pillows, too

  15. BJ your smile is so pretty. Love your new teeth. I love those pillows you found at Big Lots. I do not think we have those near where I live now. I have never seen them. Have a great week.

  16. Boy- False teeth are so different today than they were years ago. No one could even tell, bj. I bet you will be smiling and smiling and smiling all the time now. That is a really cute pillow. I think I have to go to Big Lots. It is across town here and I think I have only ever been there once or twice.

    Hope you have a wonderful night, bj. Love to you- xo Diana

  17. Oh I adore your pillows BJ. LOVE them but I LOVE your precious smile even more. You are so beautiful. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  18. Big lots has neat decor, but really deceptive on their prices about saving more than something like walmart. Ollies (if you have one) deals more with true factory rejects/overstock

  19. Good luck. It will take a while to get used to them and maybe need an adjustment or two down the road but they will be great. By the way, they look awesome!!!

  20. Pretty lady, BJ! Your new teeth are great. My mother had full dentures from age 37 (12 pregnancies, pre-flouride) until she died at 86. You look great. And I love Big Lots too! They have great home decor (and dishware!!), but ya gottat get there quick when they change over seasonal stuff or it's gone (and no wonder, with their great prices). Love your pillows. Happy Fall!

  21. You have such a beautiful smile! I rarely go into Big Lots but when I do I always wonder why I don't go in more often. I always find something so cute and I never walk out empty handed!

  22. I’m repeating what has already been said, beautiful smile on a beautiful lady!, I love gumdrops too, your pillow covers are lovely, I really love the soft colours,, we don’t have big lots here in our Canadian town but I have been to one across the border in sault Michigan, I love that store!

  23. Girl I LOVE LOVE LOVE Big Lots. There is one within WALKING distance of my house. I saw that SAME pillow there but had just bought some pillow covers in the same colors on eBay so I didn't get it. I go in there for two things and always come out with ten. Yes, their candles are always a great deal and their seasonal decorations you can't beat the prices. We've even bought our outdoor furniture there and some smaller pieces for indoors too and they've all held up really well.

  24. What a cute pillow.

    Wow! What a wonderful smile you have now, it makes it worth all of the discomfort and pain. You look great!

  25. Another pillow is a necessity! I love the pumpkin.

    Your teeth look great.

    God bless.

  26. My Mom loves Big Lots also and I have found some super cute home decor there! Love the pumpkin pillow!

  27. I enjoy shopping at Big Lots too! So true if you don't grab it when you see it, it will be gone! Love the pillows and my oldest daughters dream car is a volkswagon bug, the older ones :-) She would love that pillow! Your teeth looks wonderful :-) Hope your week is off to a great start!


  28. I haven’t been to Big Lots since my husband passed away. He always liked to go and rummage around and look at things. I can’t believe the cute things that you found. As far as those gumdrops, oh my! I am absolutely crazy about gumdrops! I’m assuming these came from the Vermont Country Store, am I right? I am going to have to treat myself to some of those. I find them irresistible. I hope my teeth stay in place while I eat them. I’m glad your dental work is behind you, I hope you’re feeling better.

  29. The Gumdrops are going in your sweet jars or your giving them away at halloween. Talking about teeth. I can't stand mine. They hurt so bad have done everything I just can't wear them have had three sets.

  30. A cousin of mine sent me to big lots to buy coffee,he said he finds unusual brands and flavors and he likes Big Lots
    I should have looked for that cute pumpkin pillow I would have bought it also
    You always have the cutest decorating things to show

  31. SAdly, no Big Lots in Canada...:o(....cute pillows!!
    I see you found a use for your wee jars! hahaha!!
    Ouch on the teeth...hopefully everything will calm down...
    Enjoy your week!!
    Linda :o)

  32. I’m a BIG fan of Big Lots!
    Your smile is beautiful! No pain? Wow! I am impressed! I had to go back several times for tweaking and then they did something or other after about 6 weeks. But I had bottom ones pulled too. Now that’s a game changer! I had no choice and am grateful for modern dentistry. I’ve had upper dentures since I was 18 years old. Good grief! Who needs dentures that young?? Well, I did!

  33. Your smile is as sweet as it always was! I love your pillows - and you could take the stuffing out of it and make it into a pillow cover if you really need to save space. If not, just sit back and enjoy it just the way it is! I feel motivated to head to Big Lots now. For some reason!

So sorry but I have no other choice.
I love my blogging friends and most of all my family but these spam prone people are so rude and selfish have made my blogging not nearly as much fun..
