Prime Purchases

Oh, my goodness, it's already September folks!  I can't believe it is almost time to start thinking about Christmas.  It seems we just celebrated Christmas a couple of months ago.  Well, maybe I can help you with some of your Christmas shopping as you browse this Prime Purchase post.


I wanted/needed some new linens for our Master Bath.  I did not want to chase all over the place trying to find some so, of course, I went straight to Amazon.  AND, I found exactly what I wanted.  They come in sets, 2 bath towels, 2 wash cloths and 2 hand towels.  They are ultra soft and I will say that it took about 4-5 washings before they dried like I want a towel to dry.  But, after a few washings, they are perfect.  I replaced Ralph Lauren towels with these and, in my humble opinion, these are soooo much better and cost less than half as much.  They come in 6 colors, so if you need/want some new towels, give these a try.



I'm pretty sure you can get any color, pattern or graphic you could possibly want in a paper cocktail napkin off of Amazon.  Of course, I love birds so these were one of my choices.



I have tried 4-5 of the long lasting lipsticks and Colorstay by Revlon is my favorite.  You will need a clear gloss to go over it once it dries and I posted that last month.  Colorstay comes in great colors (this is color 025) and is very affordable.



These are the cutest tea towels and make such a great little "happie" for someone.  There are lots of designs to choose from but I thought this one was just too cute and so true. 



I have been using these oven liners for years and years.  I just replaced the ones I had in my oven and it's so nice to just take it out and throw it away.  The old ones were not in awful shape but, they've been in my ovens for 5 years and it was time for some new ones.  They do such a great job of protecting the bottom of your oven from spills, drips and crumbs.  If you do not have these in your oven(s), you should.~chuckle~


If you have been around here long, then you know that I love nutritional shakes and have them for lunch 3-4 times a week.  They come in a 24 oz. plastic cup and these fit over them perfectly and make them easier to hold and keep them cold, cold.


This bracelet popped up while I was looking at something else and I couldn't resist it.  It is so pretty and I love the wide width.  Lucky Brand makes some good looking and nicely made fashion jewelry.


My sweet Daddy has a TV tray on one side of his recliner.  Well, he is constantly knocking stuff off of it or things slip off while he's searching for something else.  With only 20% eyesight he needs all the assistance I can come up with.  So, a couple of weeks ago I decided I would check and see if there was a TV tray with a lip.  Eureka!  look no further, these popped right up!  They are exactly what he needed and they have worked perfectly.  The lip is about 1/2 inch and things do not easily fall off nor can he push anything off while he's reaching for something else.  If you or someone you know need a lipped TV try, look no further.


This is a dandy kitchen utensil.  After I brown hamburger meat I use this is chop it up.  It's also great to use to break up canned chicken and tuna.   A genius idea for sure!


It can be difficult to find bronze dress or casual shoes, so when I saw these, I snagged them.  They are a great casual, comfortable shoe.  I love the wedge!  NOTE: it runs a tad small so you may want to order 1/2 size up.


I love flickering light and especially outdoors at night.  This weatherproof lantern is so attractive and is battery operated with a timer.  I hung this one from a shepherd's hook outside our living area windows.  It is so pretty and I plan to get a couple more to place around.  The candle comes inside the lantern and is securely mounted. The lantern is made of some type of very nice plastic that holds up to the weather.  This one only comes in a bronze finish and that is what I wanted.  


I do not know who the brilliant person was that came up with these jewels but, expandable hoses are "all that and a bag of chips."  We have owned several since they came out but none have been as hardy and well made as this one.  These are so easily managed and I keep this one in a big clay flower pot on the back porch.  It stays hooked up and ready for use.  No lugging those heavy hoses and fighting to roll them back up for me.  

And, there you have it, my "finds" for August.  Now, go have yourself a "terrific Tuesday!"

  1. I always love your Prime post😉. I tried to buy the beautiful bracelet but it is currently unavailable, dang it. I will keep an eye out for it. Love those napkins too. Enjoy your day dear friend. Hugs

  2. Great picks, Leah! Those hoses are great. Enjoy your week!

  3. I've got one of those meat choppers. Although I seldom use it these days, now that I'm usually cooking for just one person, this is indeed a great tool to have on hand.

  4. I always enjoy your prime purchases. I too love the Revlon colorstay lipstick. My fav! I am checking out those cup sleeves too! OOH, love the colors. Oh I am sucker for lanterns too! I have so many of them. Different sizes and styles. But they go with so many different types of decor. Have a good week Lea. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. I have so many tabs open on the computer now with all your great finds. That oven liner is genius. Thanks so much for linking up!

  6. I’ve been looking for a good lipstick that’ll stay in place! Thanks for sharing.

  7. I always love your Prime posts! Going back to check out a few things! I agree that it is hard to believe it is September already. Time is flying! Blessings! xo

  8. I really like that kitchen tea towel and that bracelet is very pretty.

  9. Hi beautiful. Hope you all are doing well. Great finds. Pretty bracelet and I love the sweet lanterns and precious cocktail napkins. Big hugs!

  10. All good suggestions. I ordered a solar lantern to go on our outdoor table when our patio finally gets finished. As it will be near the front sidewalk, and it is lined with solar lights, I thought having one on the table would be nice as well. Yes, to the water hose. We have to keep ours out-of-sight so it's imperative it be a coil one. I have a fancy for pretty cocktail napkins too.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
