Sometimes I go to TJ Maxx and I don't find a thing. But other times I go there and my shopping cart just isn't big enough to hold everything I want to buy.

My last trip to TJ Maxx was a great one. I found some great things. Here, let me show you.

I found these two cute stackable boxes. They are covered in a darling little pink polka dot fabric and pink bows on the lids. I thought these would be perfect to hid things in my office. You know stuff that you have to have in your office but it's all ugly stuff.

I also got a perfect color pink candle too.

I just fell in love with this cork board. I love the frame and it even came with 6 darling little rose push pins.

They had so many cute frames. I wanted to get all of them but I settled on three. When I was home I quickly put this cute little vintage picture of a little girl holding a kitty and puppy in there. I think it goes great.

This little frame is perfect. I know just the picture I'm going to put in there. I'll show it to you when I show my finished office. It's going to be done real soon. I promise.

The little frame is sitting on top of a small cake plate. But, I'm going to use it as a little lift and keep the frame on it.

The last frame I got was full of pink roses. Come on! How could I pass that up? After all, my office is a pink rose cottage theme.

I'm thinking I should be ready to show my office to you in about a week or so. I'm sure you will be so happy so you don't have to hear about it any more.

I've been having so much fun gathering things up and now I just need to put everything together and paint the desk then I'm done. Well, except I still want a pink rug and some kind of room divider to hide our fax/copy machine/scanner. But that can come later.

Hi Joanne
We have that store too but over here it is called TK Maxx for some strange reason. I can be in there for hours! I love the cork board. I have been looking for one like that for my daughters room for ages. The rose frame looks exquisite. I can't wait to see your finished office.


Hi Joanne,
It's all so PRETTY, PINK and PRECIOUS...Great finds...Think I need to better hit a garage sale or two and the thrift store :)
Warmly, Deb

SoCal Helene said...

Hi Joanne,
Glad that you enjoyed the pictures, now when I go back I see the beauty but growing up as a child you just “lived in the boonies” and it was not that much fun ;0)
I live in Corona since -97, lived in Los Alamitos before that, still miss it as that was
the first place we lived at since we moved to US. Where do live? Hope your brother is doing OK!
Have a great evening,

Judy said...

The frames are awesome. I love finding goodies I can't live without and bringing them home and deciding where to put them. I'm anxious to see your office.
