I’m a big fan of the tablescape, but since we’ve moved and have more company I’ve decided to only set the table with things I actually use. Well, kinda. And it’s spring and Pioneer Woman has her new spring collection at Walmart, so I was all over it like mayo on white bread.
The fun thing about her products is that they’re so affordable. This cute little butter dish was $5.46, the round rug placemats were $3.00 each, the underneath yellow bandana placemats $1.50 each, napkins were $6 for a set of 4, the set of 4 plates were under $20 and they have flowers and yellow polka dots on them, I’m a huge fan of yellow polka dots! The 4 glasses were $15.86, this great old fashioned pitcher was $12.72, the fluted pie plate was $12. I got the cow last year for $5 and change. I also have a napkin holder and coasters, you’re getting the picture, you can have a whole lot of fun for not a whole lot of money. And you’re thinking, but.. it adds up. Yeah, it does but you could easily spend this much money on an Easter outfit or a spring purse.
Now I’m eyeing up this cookie jar, okay I admit, it’s in my shopping cart, okay, okay, so I bought it just now. It was $15 - I’m the queen of justification, just ask my friends, I can justify anything and I really wanted this cookie jar to complete my collection. I love the old fashioned look of it, the glasses are sturdy and the pitcher is the perfect size. Do I need this stuff? Of course not, but I had a heck of a good time buying all of this and it makes me happy. I walk into the kitchen and I smile.
And did I mention her knife set? We’re in overload here, I’m saving that little gem for another post.
