Preppy Pink and Green Finds and A Crafty Spring Break!

Monday, March 8, 2010

It’s finally starting to feel like spring...and in perfect time because I am off from work this week for spring break! Since the husband is in the middle of tests we won’t be taking off to anywhere exotic, but I am so excited to have a whole week to organize, decorate, and try a couple of projects from Amy Butler’s book In Stitches (which I bought last week)! It’s going to be a crafty spring break!

I headed to Joann’s to pick up some supplies this morning and then decided to stop at Michaels before going home. I hit the preppy pink and green jackpot at Michaels! Look at all the fun items I found in their dollar section!

Even a cute new placemat for the Poe Cat!

He tried it out as soon as I put it down!

They had so many delightful things...I had to stop myself from buying them all! In Florida I used to find fun preppy items at Marshalls and TJ Maxx, but the stores where I live in Virginia are not so great and I hardly ever find anything. Where do you find fun pink and green things? On the topic of preppy items...what are your favorite online boutiques for monogrammed gifts and goodies?


  1. Great post and adorable finds. They are oozing with Spring. I can't wait to hear where people find cute Monogrammed finds online. Swoozies has a store by me and the cutest pink and green finds. They can monogram almost anything too.

  2. Oooh I love those folders.... and are those magnets? I'm always in need of more magnets!

    I find a lot of my stuff at Marshall's and TJ Maxx, but I also find treasures at Michael's and when it comes to home decor there is a cast off/overstock store near the preppy boyfriends home that has the best deals in the whole world I wish it were a chain!

  3. dang what fabulous finds! I need to find some super cute pink items like butterflies for my wedding!

  4. Love your finds! Too cute... I recently found some adorable things in the dollar sections of target! They had pink and green buckets that I used and stocked up on for delivering cookies and treats to people! They also has a lot of preppy and nautical themed items (so a little tacky, but a lot of great finds!) and also some cooking items! I got some great measuring cups in pink and green and also some good mixing bowls! I also have had some luck at Homegoods, very similar to TJ Maxx and Marshalls.

    As for online monogrammed gifts, I like They have a great selection and some really good finds at reasonable prices. If you type in "preppy monogrammed gifts" into google the first couple sites that come up are pretty good, although most of them have the same stuff at more or less the same prices.

    Hope this helps! Loved this post!

  5. What fun finds! I hope you accomplish a lot over Spring Break!

  6. I feel your pain on the TJ Maxx and Marshalls in VA. I'm from the Charlottesville area and the TJ Maxx here in Tennessee is TONS better! Looks like you hit gold in Michael's!
