Hey friends.  How are you?  I know…I know…I usually don’t post on the weekend.  I happened to take one of those old lady naps in the evening…and now I am having trouble sleeping.  Plus…I happened upon some amazingly cool stuff at Wal-Mart today…and I couldn’t wait to share it with you.  Does the big W. ever surprise you like that?  You know, not just your basics, but some pretty nifty stuff!

The whole reason that we even went to Wal-Mart was to get a new welcome mat.  My Mr. has been painting our exterior doors and we wanted a new mat for the front.  I am totally in love with the color that we have chosen for our doors.  It’s called Slate Tile.  I love the depth that it adds.  Anyway…..we decided to park back by the automotive entrance…and head to the rugs.  Two perks in this.  One…you usually don’t meet up with tons of people who you know…just in case you didn’t dress like you were going to an inaugural ball and two…you get to go right past the CRAFT department.  Yes…I can hear your *sigh*!  😉

So…I picked up a lone cart that was left back there, (Hey…at least I didn’t jump on the motorized one.) and zipped right down a craft aisle.  What to my wondering eyes did appear….but a little shelf full of wondermous things!  Rolls of burlap ribbon and cute little grapevine wreaths.  They even had a little chicken wire basket.  What chicken farmer’s wife could turn that down?

I figured it up on the way home and my little shopping spree cost us about thirteen dollars.  (As far as my sashay through the craft department goes.)  How fun is that?  I actually had two rolls of burlap ribbon…but I could live without the original color.  The apple green had to come home with me.

Thanks for coming along on our Wal-Mart trip, Dirt Roaders.  Sometimes the big W. surprises me.  What a fun little trip!  By the way…I was sweet and let the Mr. pick out the rug.  He did great.  I love it when we do this.  It may or may not be exactly what I would have picked…but I love it even more…because he picked it.  He is my sweetheart. 😉
