Okay, it's November and, for the first time in as long as I can remember, I am not finished with my Christmas shopping, in fact, I've hardly started.  But, this Israel trip that I am leaving on tomorrow has consumed the time that I would normally be using to get Christmas ordered.  But, when I return I'll get on it.  And, it will all be okay!
For now, you may see something in my Prime purchases this month that will assist you with your Christmas shopping.  Let's go check them out..............


I needed a baby gift and this has been my "go to" gift for the past few years.  This is the softest and best made towel and washcloth set.  It's made out of bamboo and  and comes in 4 suitable colors for babies. If you need a baby gift, I highly recommend this.


This is the cutest casual top, a 3/4 sleeve sweatshirt type top.  It is a midweight and looks really nice and washes well.  I did size up and it fits perfectly.  There are other colors to choose from as well.  I wear mine with a pair of black joggers and it looks real cute.  It may well be in my suitcase when I leave tomorrow. ~chuckle~


Our scales bit the dust a few weeks ago and I replaced them with these.  Our last ones were pretty much just like these.  They are easy to use, thin and gives you your exact weight in a digital readout.


Ladies, these are so good looking!  And, as far as I'm concerned they are the perfect size.  These are definitely going with me to Israel as earrings may well be my main piece of jewelry while I am there. They would make a great Christmas gift too!

I needed to replace some of my tolietry bags and packing for my Israel trip made me do just that.  I ordered two of these, in two different designs.  I have one for makeup, one for hair items, one for face cleansing and one for bathing items.  Yep! I need individual bags for each of those.  Anyway, if you are in the market for a new makeup/tolietry bag, these are really nice and the perfect size.  Again, might be a great Christmas gift for someone on your list. 


I needed an insulated water bottle for my trip to Israel.  There are soooo many to choose from!  I wanted a smaller size with a built in straw.  This one seemed to fit the bill for me and comes in an array of colors.  I got one that matches my cute backpack. ~laugh~  They also have several sizes, mine is a 24 ounce.


Yes, you are seeing this correctly, this is a roll of produce bags. I love bags of all kinds!  I use these for kitchen scraps before I put them in the garbage and I use them to keep some of our produce in the refrigerator.  Lots of uses, I promise you.


I've had one of these in white for a while but decided I wanted some other colors.  These add such a nice touch to a sweater or sweatshirt, just takes it up a notch.  So many choices in colors or design.


This is such a cute cargo vest and I thought it might go to Israel with me, but decided against it. But, I will enjoy it when I return.  It is a lighter weight fabric and not like the heavy canvas many are made out of.  It comes in about 12 different colors as well and really is a nice touch to an outfit.


I will begin using these tomorrow and will use them the 10 days of my trip. I have never used the swabs but I have used the tablets.  But, these are so easy to use and if they might help me fight off a cold or other cooties, then I'm all about it.  Between the folks on the airplanes and all the folks we'll come in contact everyday, I thought this was a great idea.

And, that's a wrap for this month.  

Now, I would so appreciate your prayers for our safety and wellness on this trip.  I have had some anxiety these last days over being sooooo far away from all those I love.  But, the Lord has given me peace and I pray I will get out of this trip all that HE has for me.  I  can hardly believe that I'm really going to "the land of our Lord and Savior." 

I will do my best, once I recover, to do a blog post on my trip. ~smile~

I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Great finds! I love that sweatshirt. I also bought that same vest last month in two colors for work. I need to check out those fake collars too. I have the turtleneck type but could use these too.

  2. I am a strong believer in Zicam. Love that new toiletry case! Have a great week, Leah!

  3. Enjoy your trip!! I love those earrings.

  4. Loving that vest a lot. I love pockets so I can put my lipstick in them. LOL! Praying for a safe and wonderful trip. Enjoy every moment. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. Thank you again for sharing your purchases. I ordered the earrings from last month and love them, are these new earrings light weight? Love the vest:). I will pray for you, safe travels my friend. Hugs

  6. Of all these neat purchases, the 3/4 sleeve sweatshirt is my favorite, with the silver earrings making a close second.

    I am also glad to have a name for the vest. I've had a similar vest for 18 years and love it but it's showing wear. It's helpful to know what to call this style of vest when I start looking for a replacement.

    Keeping you in my prayers as you travel, having a wonderful time!

  7. I enjoyed your choices, Lea, and can't wait to read all about your trip to Israel. Praying for you to have safe travels and to stay healthy!! I love ZiCam, by the way!! xo

  8. Have a safe and wonderful trip! I can't wait to hear all about it. The zicam is genius! Thanks so much for linking up with Prime Purchases!

  9. I can't wait to hear about your trip! I'm going back to Israel for my fourth time in February. I love that place!! Safe travels!


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!
