Shopping: Still meditative Mother’s Day gifts and open – Belleville News

May 6, 2015 - garden totes

For a moment, I’m ignoring all a red, white and blue sell that is being paraded around for Memorial Day celebrations.

I’m not certain I’m there yet: Summer still seems distant off — and is officially. But, everybody starts meditative about it once Memorial Day draws near. we only wish to suffer open a bit more.

It’s been a potpourri week — with a tiny bit of all in a mix.

On a theme of color: AtHome (formerly Garden Ridge) in O’Fallon has rows and rows of forged timber filagree plaques in engaging shades that operation from dark immature to splendid yellow. The unsettled paint gives them a selected “found” look. They are labelled during $14.99 for a tiny turn ones, $19.99 for a block chronicle and $69.99 for a large rectilinear piece.

I see most creativity with these decorations. Hang a contingent in opposite colors plumb on a slight wall. Add hooks (they’re thick adequate for this) and hang several inside a window. Horizontally, lay one on a list as partial of a centerpiece. The turn ones would make appealing trivets on a smorgasboard table.

Still need a Mother’s Day gift? Ulta Beauty in Fairview Heights is charity a really appealing receptacle bag (in dual floral and dual plain colors) giveaway with a $40 (or more) squeeze of any fragrance. Good by Saturday.

Silly me, doesn’t everybody know about Grumpy Cat? I’m a bit out of a loop. we was unknowingly that he has stretched his horizons to embody salt and peppers shakers. He’s been assimilated by his hermit Pokey (so we can tell one shaker from a other, of course). The ceramic set is $15.95 during Eckert’s Country Store in Belleville.

If a male cavern needs sprucing adult for a ball season, Gordman’s in Fairview Heights has several photos of Busch Stadium that are prepared to be mounted on a wall. we favourite a really slight rectilinear version, that looks like canvas. It’s labelled during $19.99. Other incomparable ones are $29.99.

OK, here’s my one difference to a not-thinking-of-summer mindset: Old Time Pottery in Fairview Heights has red, mid-high board folding chairs for a beach labelled during $14.99. Look for them during a front of a store nearby a outside furniture.
