Bargain Easter Finds and More

Who doesn't love a good bargain?

While shopping at the Christmas Tree Shops last week, I found the following:

Ceramic Easter Egg Crates for $1.69 each! I have seen many blogs using these crates year-round to house your earrings. I think I will have to go back for some more as I am thinking of giving them to my nieces for Easter with a pair of earrings in one of the egg holes.

I found this egg cup for 69 cents and the find of the day were these 3 inch alabaster eggs! They are very heavy and I just love the colors and the veins that you can see in the eggs. The eggs were 69 cents each as well! I will definitely have to go back and get more! I am regretting that I didn't scoop up more because as we all know, good things go fast.

I have a Coastal-inspired room in my house and I could not pass up this lighthouse lamp. It was $4.99. Found this print for $2.50.
And after my weekly stop at the Dollar Tree, I found these candlesticks for $1.00 each. I have been inspired by many great projects I have seen on some blogs using these in various ways. Don't you just love a bargain? What bargains have you found lately?

Cool finds! Your lighthouse has inspired me. Embarrassed to admit it for two reasons but #1 there is a metal lighthouse in my backyard that stayed out all winter and is now very rusted and very dented. #2 even though I spray paint everything that does not move it didnt occur to me to paint it till I saw your white one. Hulloh? Glad I stopped by!

Wow! You did great! I love Christmas Tree Shops! We don't have them here in Houston, but I used to go to Boston for business and I would make sure to plan an outing there every time. Love the egg cups and the lighthouse lantern!
