I love gift certificates!

Joe and I headed to the mall today with gift certificates in hand. First stop was Brighton where I got the watch I've had my eye on for a while. Second stop was Pottery Barn Kids, and after looking around a bit at the beautiful, but over-priced items, we decided to get some bath stuff that was on sale. We want to redecorate our guest bathroom for Lauren since it's right across from her room, but wanted to find somthing that would match the color already on the walls so we don't have to repaint the room (it's kind of a light mossy green). We found a really cute striped pattern and the darker green stripe goes perfectly with the wall color and the pink is so nice an cheery.

Here's the shower curtain...


and here's the matching striped towels. We got the hand towel size and will pick up matching pink bath size towels somewhere else.


The sales clerk sucked me into the matching bath rug...


The non-slip tub appliques just happened to be ladybugs...


After that, we wandered into Gymboree and since we had no gift certificate, went straight to the little sale rack. Check out the adorable things I picked up....

I love this little fleece, hooded poncho and matching velvetly pants. The poncho was regularly $24.50 and we got it for $6.99 and the pants were regular $22 on sale for $6.99. We got size 18-24 months in these.



Check out this little lavender knit dress with the adorable embroidery pattern along the bottom. This was regularly $36 and on sale for $11.99! We got a size 12-18 month in this one.


The last item is just a little onesie, but it's a really pretty light green with mauve, pink and white flowers. This was regular $14.50 on sale for $5.99. They only had this one in 18-24 months.


Also, today I got all the Gymboree outfits I ordered on-line and everything is so adorable, especially the ladybug white, cable hooded sweater...I know several of you ordered this sweater too.

Ooh Brighton, my fave. What watch did you get?

Karen and Jon said...

I love bargains!! I also love the colors in that shower curtain. Just convinced Jon last night that we need to go ahead and re-do the guest bath that is next the soon-to-be nursery.

Donna - thanks for the bath info from PBK as I love those colors! I've been thinking about redoing my guest bath to make it more girly and less adult looking. Those colors would go so perfect! I'm going to grab my Mom and head over there this eve! hehe Lucky you that you won't have to paint! I'll have to paint my bathroom though as it is in olive green with a tuscany type wallpaper. OYYYY! That will be fun to strip off the walls! Please show your finished bathroom!

Hi..ok first I must confess that I "borrowed" your cartoon (without your credit..I might add.) I just love it. Second...I have your same stuff in our Hannah's bathroom! Please check out my blog - you can see. I got a different rug, but alot of the other stuff. :-) I love PBK! :-)

Thanks for the tip...sleepless nite in China so I checked it out. Got lots of stuff. Some so cute I bought a couple in two different sizes :) Your discount code was a better deal than the free shipping!

Thanks!

Susan (and Olivia who will be so rockin' in her new outfits :) )
