May Prime Purchases

Folks, here it is, the first Tuesday of June!  Wow!  we are almost half way thru 2022 and what a year it has been and continues to be.  And, do I even have to mention the high costs of pretty much everything? If things continue, there may be no more Prime posts as all money will be going for gas and food. ~I'm not joking~


I love a loaf cake because they cut so beautifully.  But, I also like to have a way to keep it fresh.  I have never been able to find a container that would fit my extra long loaf pan.  That is until now.  I haven't looked for one for quite some time and decided to check a few weeks ago and ran across this. My long loaf pan is right at 14" long and it fits perfectly in this keeper.  It is certainly not the most attractive keeper but it works.  I have looked and searched for a glass keeper that would fit this large loaf pan, or even a regular size loaf pan, and I just don't think there is such a "beast."  But, I'm thrilled as can be to have found this to keep my pound cakes FRESH when I bake them in a long loaf pan.


I diffuse lavender essential oil every night!  I have been doing this 3-4 years and I truly do believe it enhances my sleep.  I found this brand several months ago and is so much more affordable than other brands I had bought.  I buy the 4 ounce bottle and it lasts me quite a while.  I also rub it on the bottoms of my feet and inside my wrists.  I have never had any serious sleep issues but at times I will wake up between 1:00 - 2:00 AM and have difficulty going back to sleep.  I do believe this helps.  This brand also has lots of other oils, so if you prefer another oil, you'll probably find it here.


Folks, this is the greatest kitchen gadget!  My sister in law had their coffee pot on this and it makes sliding the pot in and out from under the cabinets "smooth as silk.".  It has a locking mechanism that keeps it in place while you are filling it or making your coffee.  It comes in two sizes and is good for any other appliance that you may want to place on it.  I got the smaller of the two for my coffee pot.


And, this my friends, is my new coffee maker that sits on the above slider.  I must admit, I love coffee makers and when a new model comes out I can hardly resist getting it.  I love Cuisinart and feel like their products are of such high quality.  I've been using the pot side of this one since getting it but the pod option is right there whenever I might want to just brew a single cup.  I love the option of programing it to brew automatically and I wake up to my freshly brewed coffee and it gets my day started off just perfectly. 


I do love embellished comfy shoes and these are both sparkly and comfy. I found they run about a half size small.  I returned my first pair and ordered a larger size.  And, because I have narrow feet I had to put an extra insole in them to take up the slack.  It is often hard to find shoes that even come in narrow widths.  But, where there's a will, there's a way and I can usually make it work.


These are the cutest bracelets!  They come in lots of colors, are stretchy and you can wear all of them, half of them or one of them.  Buy a couple of them and mix and match them.  They come in a lovely box and would make a great gift. 


We have used the same throws ever since we moved in this house almost 7 years ago.  I decided that I wanted some different ones.  These are so nice and soft and the added ball fringe makes for such a nice look.  They come in several colors and are a tad bit larger than most throws.  I use a throw year around when I sit in my recliner.  I want something over my legs regardless of the temperature.


You may remember that I love gazing balls and have 3 of them in various flower beds.  They do fade out over time and I had one that just wasn't very attractive anymore so I replaced it with this one.  It is so, so pretty and especially when the sunlight hits it.  Amazon also carries all types of gazing ball stands.


These are the cutest capri leggings and come in a whole lot of other prints.  They have the wonderful phone pocket and are so comfortable.  Now, I cannot stand anything skin tight so I got these in a Large and they fit wonderfully.  I wear a size 8 and their chart said I would need a medium but for me, the large is perfect!

Okie dokie gals, that's it for this go around.  I do hope you saw something to put in your cart. Wishing you a great rest of the week.  Our daughter and the grandsons will be arriving on Thursday for a few days, so it will be "all hands on deck" around here. 

 I'm going to try and put forth the effort to start blogging weekly.  We'll see how that works out.  Blessings abundant!!!

  2. Lots of great finds! I agree about the prices of everything! I'm so grateful our kids are all grown - I don't know how those with children at home make ends meet! I've had my eye on that coffee maker but we bought a similar one last year and since it works well, I can't justify replacing it . . . yet haha! I've been using my Facebook settlement money for 'frivolous' expenditures . . . so glad I opted in to that haha! Never thought it would amount to a real payout!!

  3. All of these products look good. My favorite is the Bohemian Bracelets. I love to wear bracelets!

  4. Those beaded bracelets are really pretty.

  5. I am interested in trying the lavender oil. I have a lot of restless nights and am willing to try anything. Thanks so much for linking up with Prime Purchases!

  6. Always a fun visit, Lea!! I have a Kuerig coffee maker that does a pot or a k-cup. Love it!!

  7. Thanks for the tip on the throw....looking for a color I like as we need some new ones. Agreed...even in the hot summer I love a throw while reclining and watching a movie. Cozy! Always enjoy your posts!


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!
