Scott's in December!

I have some great pictures that I took at Scott's this month.  I think I told you guys that Better Homes filmed me shopping there for the launch of the Ipad app in May.  I was nervous but since it is something I am so passionate about and love doing...it wasn't as scary as I thought it was.  I guess we will see if they use it!

It was cold weekend and I didn't get to do that much shopping on Thursday but I went back on Friday with Lisa and Jan and we were pretty successful.  Even though Lisa didn't buy anything I didn't hold it against her since it is the holidays :)
Here are some of the wonderful things I saw.  If only money grew on trees....
Let's start with pillows.

Black and white.
These are beautiful.  This fabric is quite expensive [between $600-800 a yard] so 200.00 a pillow is pretty good!
Yummy...gold and dark gray.
Love this Osborne and Little fabric.
Dreamy...
My favorite colors!
 Which leads me to these!!!  I love me some shutters and I bought those small ones in the right hand corner.  I used them in my Christmas decor which you will see sometime before Christmas :)

And I bought some of the blue leather books for $10 each!  Score.
Great sunburst mirrors.  They were practically all sold.
LOVE...I had no place for it!
I know you want this....:)
Beautiful.  I bought this for a client.  It was a lovely french blue with old mirror in it.
I bought these for me...$3.00 each!
Old green leather chesterfield sofa....
These would make me happy.
So cool.  Old pieces of slate with numbers on them.  They were "Target" cheap and I bought 2 for my house...you'll see !
Wish I had gotten this...
This girl took old fabric and wrapped it in a tight ball....I loved it with the old scissors.
large spools of thread.
Great in a boys room.
Lockers are hot now...
So are these...
I really kind of wanted this....price was too high.
I'll take it all!!!
Stunning.  Was afraid to look at the price :)
Is there anybody who wouldn't want this?????
Why do I like mirrors so much???
Jan bought this for her master.  She put some pretty necklaces on it.
These would be great hung together on al wall.
Something Jonathan Adler would like I think.
Covered in Tom Filicia's new fabric line from Kravet.
Aren't they cute?

OK...you must be bored by now.  Or pissed cause you weren't there.  Scott's is the best place to shop....for real people.

On another note, I am going to one of those Christmas Cookie parties tonight.  I got a stern note that you could not BUY your cookies.  Whatever.  So I made some that had 2 ingredients.  And I almost screwed it up.  Yep.  The recipe said all you do is melt mint chocolate chips in the microwave and dip the ritz crackers in it.  Sounds easy enough.  Except it doesn't exactly melt all the way which confused me and I dipped one in there and it was so hot it took my skin off.  I had to use some tongs and then it left a place where there was no chocolate when I put it on the wax paper.  They aren't very pretty but they taste like the Girl Scouts thin mints.  Taste is all that counts in cookies.  Cause if you are eating them in the dark and they're good who cares right?

It is cold...... like Iceland...... today in Atlanta.

Great post...and I promise I'll buy something next time, when it isn't the season to "think of others." You and Jan made good purchases...I'm proud of you both.
p.s. Your cookies sound pretty good!

Sarah Bragg said...

I definitely need to make it to Scott's! That was really funny about the cookies because I had a similar experience except I didn't persevere. I tossed it!

Freezing here too! I miss going to Scott's but my husband doesn't miss me going. haha. Great finds Sherry! I'm still not over Lakewood's demise...

You are a Scott's rock star! You pick the best pieces. Not bored--just pissed. ;-)

I'm coming to Atlanta in May for a graduation and I may have to extend my trip to hit Scott's!

P.S. You looked fab at Flourish via Milk and Honey Home!

Paige @ The Wandering Cottage said...

Great stuff! I could get in trouble there. It's a good thing we just passed thru Atlanta.

Mandi Smith T said...

My hubby is begging to go the National Championship game in January, sooo it looks like I may be able to negotiate another trip to Scott's soon. Hope I run into you there! M.

Naomi Stein said...

Deserae said...

Wow, so many wonderful goodies....I am completely envious!!! I am a complete hazzard in the kitchen too so don't feel bad. Besides,who cares what they look like as long as they taste good right?!?!?!

Definitely not bored, just a little, er, jealous! Not angry. I try to get Zen this time of year. Ha.

Seriously, love all your finds (of course), but I love that chair with the Thom Filicia fabric. Perfect color way for my den/family room.

I vow to hit Scott's sometime in the next few months (if I have any money left after Christmas)!

Mimi said...

Love the blog Sher... Clever and great pics as always. Love everything.

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

We are sporting 12 degrees here today! Seriously, what is THAT about!
I am all about winter but this is ridiculous!

Love your finds!!! And the ones you didn't get too!

Hampton said...

wow-so many amazing things all in one place! I love the sunburst mirrors and the red armoire is fantastic-thanks for sharing!

Teresa said...

your posts are always so funny :)

Tiphany said...

Sher, I think that white china cabinet would look so good in my dining room and you can take my old one and refurbish and sell it! Easy cookie idea - snowmen - melt white chocolate and dip nutter butters in it. Use mini m&ms and tube frosting for face, buttons, and neck scarf.

Julie Holloway said...

yum--those pillows and that recipe! Have fun and thanks for the pics.

Design Blooms said...

I am kicking myself right now. I sat right beside you at Lavish, and didnt even talk to you or introduce myself. I dont know the faces behind the blogs! I was looking through Milk and Honey Home and was lead here when I saw your pic! Anyhow, love Scott's, it's my favorite place ever to shop...my parents joke that I ONLY come to visit on the second weekend of every month!

mydesignchic said...

So many amazing finds...must get to Atlanta. 25 degrees in NC today and whipping winds...

Emily A. Clark said...

I always love your commentary :) Such a great shopping trip--and you're going to be a BH&G superstar!

Freezing here in Charlotte today, too. Miserable.

And, you're my kind of cookie baker. I would be a rebel, buy my cookies at Sam's and put them on a pretty platter. . .

Rene said...

Maybe one day I will make it there. An older gentleman came by to look at chairs we listed on craigs and he sells at Scott's. One of each please.
