~ New Favourites ~


I wanted to share with you a few of my new favourite finds



I recently discovered Trader Joe's ~French Market~ Sparkling Lemonade, It is so refreshing and my family loves it. I love the packaging too,very french. ($2.99)
Also, Target sells these plastic tumblers in assorted sizes. They look identical to the ones Anthropologie sells but they are kid friendly and inexpensive. 



 I purchased 6-8 of each style tumblers and goblets. I first found about about these tumblers on Tausha's blog Simply Me Tausha sometimes uses these as flower vases and they look so pretty. ($2.99-$3.99 )

Two of my favourite places to shop, Target and Trader Joes  



My new favourite place for fresh flowers is Trader Joes ($3.99) for bunches
LOVE these roses



I displayed them in my favourite chippy french bottle rack
You can find similar antique french bottle racks on Etsy

~Let me know if you end up trying a few of my new favourites and how you like them~

Have a wonderful Sunday
xo,
Rachel

We don't have a Trader Joe's, the closest one is in Atlanta 8 hours away. That's just a little to far for lemonade and flowers for me. But I do have Tausha! She's a friend who comes to my shop to shop. What a sweet heart.
I love the lemonade bottle, I might find that at World Market?
What a pretty inspiration today Rachel, love it!
Hope you enjoy your Sunday~SueBee

Yes, that TJ's lemonade is good! I was just at Target last night! We get most of our dry good type groceries/misc. there, and then go to the regular grocery store for fresh food - saves money for us. I just bought these chunky, clear/simple glass votive cups in the candle aisle... I'm going to wrap dried corn stalk leaves around them as seen on Martha Stewart's site. ;-) Hope you are having a fab weekend!

Sparkling lemonaide is one of my favorite drinks too. I have used empty Italian soda bottles for vases because they are so pretty. I love your roses. They are just gorgeous! I plan on shopping at Target today. I want to look at some French grain sack inspired lampshades they are carrying now. :)

Great finds! I love the Trader Joes lemonade and use the bottles for vases. So pretty with the label left on. Thanks for the info about Target. They have some great stuff sometimes!

Good Morning Rachel-
We always buy the lemonade!! It is yummy and then when you are finished, you can use the bottle as a flower vase!!! The tumblers I have not seen. Surprising since I go to Target 3 times a week:))Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Hi Rachel! How are you? Your favorites are great! Our family enjoys the TJ's lemonade & the bottles also double as vases too. ;) And that's a great place to buy flowers as well. Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday! I hope you can take the time to stop by my blog when you get a chance.


Blessings,
Jessie

As soon as we get a Trader Joe's in this area, I would love to try those things. We have Target though!

Ashley said...

I do quite like this lemonade from Trader Joe's, but have yet to see these cups at Target, I will definitely search for them next time...however, I just could not wait till we head up to the pumpkin patch, so I did buy some pumpkins today from Trader Joe's =) Have a great week dear Xoxoxo

I saw those tumblers at Target...love them!!! I did not know Trader Joes had such gorgeous, inexpensive flowers...so glad you shared with us!!

Have a fabulous week!!

simpledaisy said...

Oh my goodness!!! Your photos are just beautiful!!!!!!!

Tricia said...

Looks so pretty, Rachel! I love that lemonade too. I've bought the pink kind in the past. I should take a trip to Trader Joe's...I always love it there.

Simply Me said...

So Beautiful !!! Looks so pretty with them flowers!! I love the Lemonade bottles!! I want some .... lol

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

So pretty and I will have to try that lemonade, Rachel. We don't have a Trader Joe's here but one town over... I will go there one day at an unbusy time (they're right off the freeway and very bad traffic). That is a great price for flowers. I bet if you added a little lavender sugar to that lemonade it would go very good as well.

The glasses from Target are so cute, maybe I can get some for outside (and my hubby & daughter) so they don't have to say "are these important glasses"? A funny joke here!

I love Tausha, she's a good friend & so talented in her style, as are you.

Ok, Rachel, I think I need to head right on over to Target (or "Tar-jay", as I like to call it!) for some of those pretty glasses! I, too, love Trader Joe's, and I think I would buy the lemonade just for the neat bottles! Love, love, love your vintage metal bottle carrier! It all looks tres magnifique!!
