Things I'm Delighted To Share With You

We finally got some snow!!  As I bring some of my delightful finds to you this Sunday, I am delighted to share a pic of the snow in my backyard. It's only a little bit...but it's the first we have actually had this winter. So pretty! I knew if I did a winter tablescape, it would bring on the snow! Now, for some other things I want to share. 

I'm delighted to find my snowmen throughout the house. I enjoy my winter decorations as much, if not more, than the Christmas decorations. Having winter decorations helps the house to not look so bare and sad after the Christmas decorations are put away. 

Although the snow is pretty, I can find winter a little depressing, so the cheerful snowmen pick up my wintry spirits!

What I didn't find a bit depressing, was Jan Karon's new book which I received at Christmas from Mr.thisandthat. Oh my goodness...I LOVED this book! Kelly over at Talk of the House did an amazing blog post on this book earlier this year, so I won't say too much. Check out her wonderful post. But, I highly recommend your reading this book!

How about this delightful find?! I'm loving these jewelry hangers that I picked up at Big Lots for around $3 for two hangers. They are a terrific way to keep my costume jewelry organized so I can slip things on easily in the mornings. No digging around trying to find things I wear frequently! Similar here.

Now this is really delightful...clothes hangers that take up less space in the closet! Found these at Target and Mr.thisandthat and I are gradually changing out all hangers in our closets to these. We both find we can fit more clothes in less space with these. I don't have any still packaged to show you the brand...but Target seems to carry these regularly. We've purchased more about three different times! These look similar.

I'm loving the extra space and organization.

Does your skin get dry during the winter?  Mine sure does.  That's why I was delighted to find Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer. It is a pleasant smelling heavier lotion that absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling great even after several hand washings throughout the day. Great for my legs, heels and elbows, also. 

My face dries out as well, so you know I was delighted to find my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion on my shelf.  One of my sisters introduced me to Clinique years ago and I have used this lotion as a moisturizer ever since. It's a little pricey at around $26 per bottle, but it lasts a long time. I also try to buy it around the time Clinique has their give away gift days and I get a makeup bag filled with great products for my $26 purchase. 

And, although I do like Clinique, I have always been a mix and match girl when it comes to makeup. So, I don't use just exclusively one brand of anything. That's why I am delighted to find these two choices in my makeup bag. Maybelline Great Lash has long been my go to choice for mascara. And I found these pretty eye shadow colors for $3 at the drugstore around Christmas and have been using them a lot. They were billed as stocking stuffers, but I chose them for the pretty blues and greys and for the price! (Yes, I do wear blue eyeshadow and am proud to do so. I'm over 50 so who cares anyway????) The brand is Jesse's Girl.

So, that's it for delightful finds this Sunday!  How about you?  Do you have favorite finds for organizing, decorating or makeup? I'd love to hear from you, so please leave a comment!

Thank you for sharing the post on Jan Karon's book! I'm so glad your husband gave you a copy for Christmas. What a fun read on a winter's day! I also took a peek at your winter table. Very cute! Snowmen are so fun to use for decorations this time of year. And how lucky you are to get a dusting of snow. I would LOVE some here! :)
