FUN FINDS and SMELL-O-SCREEN

For the past few months, whenever I go hunting for FUN FINDS I look for these milk glass bubble bowls.  There is something about them that draws me in.  I love their skim milk color that you can almost see through.  The bubbles of white are just full of whimsy.  I've now amassed 4 of them!  YAY!  Then the other day, I came upon a little STACK of wee itsy bitsy bubble bowls.  THEY HAD TO COME HOME WITH ME!  I didn't know they made little ones too!  Apparently they are called berry bowls, at least that's what they were labeled.  I also found this super sweet covered milk glass butter dish.
Isn't she lovely too?  She would only hold about a half stick of butter, not nearly enough for ANY of the Paula Deen recipes I'm fond of but hey, she's CUTE! 
I must have recently sat on a four leaf clover because I was LUCKY and won a SCENTSY warmer from super sweet Layla and Kevin at THE LETTERED COTTAGE and Lisa Smedley of Scentsy .  I totally wish I had SMELL-O-SCREEN so you could get a whiff of CLEAN BREEZE, it's the scent I have in my warming unit.  It smells like your house in the spring when you leave all the windows open.  PERFECT!
I think I'm addicted to this thing!  You can pour out the hot wax back into it's container and re-use it, plus switch scents. Cool! 

In other fun finds, I want to share some blogs that I've been enjoying lately.  You probably already follow them, but just in case you are not...

FUNKY JUNK INTERIORS  She has this hilarious post about "you know you are a blogger when..."  I could totally relate!
OLD GREY MARE  Lovely photos and prose to go with them
URBAN FARM GIRL She's an upbeat chick with wonderful white wares and great ideas!
FADED PRAIRIE Photos that stop you in your tracks, ideas in abundance and a great little Etsy shop
TWIG She just gets me laughing, has great photos and her ideas ROCK!

Okay, there are some blogs to munch on.  If you haven't already saved them into your faves, then RUN and do it!  And if you have, well, um I guess we both have great taste! LOL

ONE last little tidbit.  It's definitely going to be one of those stories that isn't really funny 'cause "you had to be there" but I simply must share.  Last week, Callie, Cole and I were at Target getting some back to school supplies (basically giving away my arm and leg) and I decided to get a few towels if they had any on sale.  As we are looking at the towels, Callie holds up one of those RUG thingies that goes over your toilet lid.  She wanted to know what it was.  So I told her it fits over your toilet lid.  She looked at me kinda weird and then said, "Excuse me, I can't find the toilet, all I see is a rug covered seat in your bathroom."  Again, you had to be there but I got tickled over the whole idea of trying to camouflage what a toilet really is by "beautifying" it! 
Joining a couple fun parties...come along and join in the fun, check out the party link on the right!

I just went on a thrifting trip to the beach last week and I scored 4 of those bubble bowls! I was thrilled. I am looking for a milk glass butter dish, but have not found one cheap enough yet. I like a good bargain! Love & blessings from NC!

I love milk glass too...and you know a couple of years ago I passed a pitcher and 6 drinking glasses that were only $14.00!! I still think about that..*sigh*.

Great collection I'm sure you'll have good use for the little bowls...sweet.
