Prime Purchases


I get so many positive comments on my Prime Purchases posts and it makes me happy that I can recommend items that you might enjoy or need as well.   So, here's the February Prime Purchase post for your enjoyment.  


 OXIMETER  BLOOD  OXYGEN METER



I saw this on another blogger's post 2 - 3 months ago.  I didn't order it at that time but, after Christmas and the rampant activity of Covid, I decided it would be good for us to have one on hand.  It is simple to use and will tell you in 15 seconds what your blood oxygen level is and that is VERY important if you have Covid.  It could be the best $30 you have ever spent.

AMAZON


SKETCHERS  SLIPPERS

I think I may have featured these before because this is my second pair, but, nonetheless, they are worth mentioning again.  I love substantial house shoes/slippers.  I want to be able to walk out to the mailbox if need be and not have to put on my regular shoes.  These are especially warm, very well constructed and comfortable.  They are my winter slippers and very reasonably priced.



ACACIA  WOOD  TRAYS



If you have been reading my blog for very long then you know that I love anything that is made of Acacia wood.  These two trays were no exception.  I am using the octangle one as a tray beside my coffee pot that holds the creamer, the sweetner and a spoon holder.  They can be used for a host of things, one being a small Charcuterie board.



OXO  GOOD  GRIPES  COOKIE  PRESS



I love baking cookies and saw this featured on another blogger's prime purchases and decided I wanted to give it a try.  I had bought an electric cookie press many years ago and it was a disaster as far as I was concerned.  But, the description of this one sounded like something that I could very easily use and enjoy.  And, it is!  Let me give you a little "heads up" though.  The instructions say to place the press on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Well, I always use parchment paper when I am baking cookies, so I put parchment paper on the pan.  I tried 6 or 7 cookies and they were disasterous, they stuck to the bottom of the gun.  It finally dawned upon me that perhaps the parchment paper was the issue.  And, sure enough it was.  When I removed the parchment paper and placed the press directly on the cookie sheet it worked like a charm and each cookie turned out perfectly. 


 The press comes with 12 different discs and 4 really good recipes. I used the sunflower disc for the above pictured cookies  I couldn't tell you the dozens and dozens of cookies that I have made since Covid reared its ugly head last March.  It has become a favorite past time and this cookie press has made it even more enjoyable.



GORILLA  PADS
 


Okay folks, if you have a piece of furniture that you DO NOT want to move, then you need these "bad boys."  Hubby's recliner seems to never be where it is suppose to be, always slid back 2-3 inches. I had put some rubber strips on the runners of the chair that were "suppose" to keep it from sliding but they did not work.  I've never seen such grippers as these and I have grippers on a whole lot of furniture in our house.  I did have to cut these down to fit but that was not a problem.  I put two on each runner and, as I said, the chair has not moved!



MAGNETIC  BOOKMARKS



These little magnetic book marks make the neatest little enclosure to a card.  It might be a birthday, get well, or thinking of you card.  It's always fun to get a card with a little "happie" tucked inside.

AMAZON


MAGNETIC  CORD  AND  CABLE  TIES

These are just dandy!!!!  They are magnetic and work great for phone charging cords and other smaller cords.  They keep the cord neat and out of the way.  I cannot stand cords everywhere and I generally used zip ties but these are so much better.  They do need to make them for bigger cords though.

AMAZON


AMBER  SPRAY  BOTTLES


I seem to quite often need a spray bottle for something.  It's generally for something to do with general house cleaning.  These are such nice ones and they DO NOT leak and have a great spray.  They are 8 ounces and that is plenty big enough for my needs.  Hubby has also been known to use them for things out in his shop.  They are a nice item to have on hand.  You just never know when you might need a spray bottle.



BLACK  DISPOSABLE  FACE  MASKS


I've gone the whole gambit with mask wearing.  I started out with the whiteish  ones and then went to those that made a fashion statement and now I'm "loving" these.  They are individually wrapped, they do not shed on the inside and I like the black color.  I really like that they are individually wrapped and I can keep a couple in my purse without them getting messed up. And, I love the fit, I never have to pull them up or down.  They stay in place very well.  

AMAZON


TIFFANY  LAMP


I LOVE Tiffany lamps!!!  I have several throughout our home and just added this one.  


I have this little space in my kitchen and I thought this lamp would be the perfect addition to the corner.  I am very pleased and, as with most all of our lamps, they are never turned off.  I guess you might say, I LOVE lamp light!  They give such a warm feeling to a house.

AMAZON


STORAGE  OTTOMAN



 I am so excited to tell you about this purchase.  I was looking for some smaller storage ottomans to replace some large woven baskets I had.


Here is where I am using the ottomans.  I use one of them for throws and one for toys for the Grans.  I just wanted a little dressier look than the baskets.  One issue with my search was finding the right size and look.  I could find lots of square ones where the tops lifted off , and I found a lot of longer ones with tops that lifted.  After keeping on with my search I finally found these and I could not love them more. They are 24x18x18 and the tops lift and stay until you push it shut.  And, the fabric is perfect.  It comes in both fabric and a faux leather in about 5 colors each.  The bronze brads around the bottom and the curved legs give it such a nice look.  And, the tops are tufted and it says they can hold up to 300 pounds if anyone wants to sit on them.  Well, we won't put that to the test but the Grans can sure sit on them.

AMAZON


FIREPLACE  SCREEN


I've sort of had a "decorating bug" this month and have enjoyed "fluffing our nest" a bit.  We had a tri-fold fireplace screen and I wanted one that would just be flat across the fireplace opening. This one fit the bill to a "T."  It is a beautiful oil rubbed bronze and I love the vine design on the very sturdy screen.  And, the brackets it sits in are sturdy but do not stick out.


And, it has handles on both sides at the top that makes moving it very easy.  The only draw back is that it is PRICEY but the workmanship is stellar and it's exactly the look I wanted. It also comes in black and gray.

AMAZON

And, there you have it!  

I'll leave you with these............

  1. You always share the best stuff! I like that those masks are individually wrapped! The open packs at our office and in our work cars gross me out thinking about what might be contaminating them now that the pack is open.

  2. Those gorilla pads were a serious game changing find for me with one of our sofas. I've tried so many in the past and was so excited these work so well. So many other great finds here and your cookies turned out so pretty!

  4. I just saw the cord things on Tanya's old Amazon post, and they're genius. The Gorilla pads are a must. We have something similar and oh my word. They've made it possible for me to move furniture and paint rooms by myself. You are the 2nd person today to share that cookie press. Those make the best little cookies. The wood trays are beautiful, and I'm kind of obsessed with all wood trays. HA! XOXO

  10. Love the idea of closing cards with a magnetic bookmark. I might need to steal that idea. My family has the oximeter, which is handy, since we all have Covid right now. It's always good to know if your oxygen is dropping too much.

  13. Wow, you are ready to open your own bakery with those pretty cookies. That might be a great tool to have, especially for the holidays.

    I have a storage bench that I keep my purses in!! But they are so well out of sight that I forget to change my purse out now and then.

    Those magnetic bookmarks are soooo pretty. I have an online book club and would like to send one of those to each member. Thank you for the inspiration and the link.

  15. I always enjoy these posts. Sure wish those sweet little book magnets were still available but I just looked and they aren't. Love, love that lamp! I have two Tiffany "style" lamps, both have dragonflies, and I just love them. They give off such a pretty light. You have really been on a decorating binge, haven't you...lol!!! Your home is lovely. I think I may have that same valance but in burgandy. I am soooo wanting to do some redecorating but just haven't figured out what I want to do...gotta make some choices first!!! Maybe soon.

  16. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
