September's Prime Purchases

I'm NOT going to say it, but, I just can't seem to help myself, y'all it's a little over 3 months until Christmas.  Good grief, I can't even hardly think about it but I'll get it in gear and I'll be ready. Perhaps some of my prime purchases will assist you with some of your shopping.  Here's this month's purchases...........


I recently repainted the huge pots on our front porch and I wanted a totally different look for them.  I decided that I wanted some pampas grass in the mix but I knew it could not be dried due to the humidity we have here in NE Louisiana.  So, I began checking out the various kinds on Amazon and this type seemed as though it might fare okay under the porch.

This is the grass mixed in with some greenery and I am so pleased with the look.  All of it is put inside a 15" piece of pipe and the pipe is held in place with sand and gravel. All the stems of the arrangements are 12 inches or more.  We are hopeful that it is secure enough to withhold the awful winds that can blow up here on the hill.  I'm pretty sure it won't be long until it is put to the test and I'm sure crossing my fingers. 


I bet some of you are saying, "you got ANOTHER coffee pot.!"  Yep!  I do love coffee pots and when Hubby's office called and said the pot at the office was a goner, I jumped at the chance to give them the one I currently had.  I was wanting an excuse to buy a Ninja and that excuse just feel in my lap. ~chuckle~  This is an awesome machine and has a 12 cup pot and makes 6,8,10,and 12 ounce cups with pods.  And, the size is very doable.  Ninja is a great brand and I am very happy thus far.


When we built our home 8 years ago we did not put handrails up on the brick steps going off our back porch.  Well, we have recently felt that they are needed but we sure did hate to spend the fortune on them that we spent on the ones on the front porch steps.  Hubby decided to just give Amazon a look and "low and behold" if they did not have a nice selection for heavy duty rails.  We chose these and they have the shepherd's hook curl on the top and that dresses them up a bit.  We are so very pleased and the cost was unbelievably less expensive.  Of course, they are not custom designed but they look really nice and serve a great purpose.


Let me just tell you that if you are going to be doing a lot of spray painting with canned spray paint, you will definitely want to have these.  Hubby just recently painted one of our patio sets and the front porch benches.  His finger would absolutely have never held up if it had not been for these triggers.

He used 12 cans of flat black paint for these items and we still have a few more items to tackle.  It was way too hot on the day he did this so we'll wait until a bit cooler weather before doing the rest.


This was likely designed with a pantry in mind but, that is not where I am using the one I ordered.  I have a small room up at Hubby's office where I do all my gift wrapping and shipping.  And, I store all my Christmas there and wrap it all there.  It's awesome because I don't have to keep it at our house. This serves as a great way for me to keep ribbon and all manner of items that I have in my room.  I think it  would work well in a pantry but I just didn't need it for mine.  It's simple to put together and, as you can see from the picture, it holds a whole lot.


This is my 2nd wallet by this brand and I may never have another kind.  I love it!  Yes, it is big but it holds all the things, a neat zipper compartment for cash and coins and slip pockets for all the cards. It has a neat little strap if you prefer to carry it alone but I do not do that.  It's always in my purse and fits perfectly in my small handbag.  I have a pretty large handbag but I just keep it on the floor behind my seat in case I need one of the many items in it.  I seldom carry it because it's easier on my neck and shoulder if I stick with something small.  


Speaking of purses, these cute little coin wallets are awesome.  I love the design and I use two of them in my large purse.  In one I keep things like bandaids, ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc.  In the other one I have a small tape measure, a small pair of fold up sissors, and things of that sort.  They are just big enough and fit nicely in my bigger purse. They are smaller but plenty big for what I use them for and, as I said, they are so cute!


Our oldest granddaughter will be 14 the first of Oct. and these pens are something that were on her list.  She loves pens just about as much as I do. This is such a pretty set and I imagine she will have hours of enjoyment with them. She has such a beautiful handwriting and these colored gel pens will just add to the beauty.

Okay, that's it for this time.  Hoping that fall is just around the corner as it is still very hot here in NE Louisiana and we are in need of some rain.  Until next time...........

May God shine His bright light on you today!

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. That is good to know about the metal stair railing. I am going to store that idea away in case if I ever need it. I have an organizing system behind my pantry door, but I really like this one and think these are such a clever way of storage and organization. Thanks for sharing some good ideas and loved the encouragement at the end!

  2. I was just looking at that coffee pot this morning! This must be confirmation that I need to get it. πŸ˜‰

  3. Thanks as always for your Prime post. I have the over the door organizer and love it. I am ordering the little purses for gifts. I will include a gift card or something else. Those are too cute. Enjoy your day dear friend. Hugs.

  4. I had no idea that you could buy metal railings at Amazon! I need to order those nozzles right now. I have to paint a bunch of picture frames for our women's retreat.

  5. What a smart idea to secure the pampas grass in the pipe! I hope this works out as well as is necessary. I am really impressed with that idea.

    Has it really been 8 years already since you built this house?!! Stair railings: yes, that’s a good idea, especially as we age. This looks nice.

    As for the over-the-door organizer, I really like those. But I had one on a pantry door in Colorado and over time found that the weight of the rack with its contents put a strain on the door hinges. So just keep an eye on that and you’ll be fine.

    These are good ideas you have shared with us. Thank you!

  6. It seems like Amazon carries the most random yet useful things, like the hand rail. Who would have thought?! Thanks so much for linking up with Prime Purchases! Tanya - The Other Side of the Road

  7. Amazon really has the most amazing finds! I love your use of the coin purses.

  8. Just ordered the Ninja coffee pot!

  9. You ordered lots of wonderful things. Gosh, I wish my husband had an office where I could store my Christmas stuff! LOL! But, since he's retired, I have to store it in the crawl space!

  10. Please Read.You have a great post here, Have anyone here know Goji Berries... yes... I tried those too.For my health conditions, Those sweet, red berries seemed to help, but only during the time when I consumed them. I don't want to take a drug for the rest of my life, so why would I want to take a natural supplement everyday for the rest of my life (although Goji berries are very tasty and are highly nourishing). To me this was not a cure either (and I'm LOOKING for the CURE).
    Up to that point, I hadn't found a cure. I felt like a young jumbled mess. I continued to have extreme pain, but continued on my path to healing. I started to focus on myself and not everyone else. When I was a young adult, I took on too much responsibility out of a sense of obligation. This was no longer healthy for me, so I resigned from all my projects and groups. Those days to come were the best [and worst] days. I took a lot of time off work, yet begun to feel so extremely exhausted. Many health professionals "diagnosed" me with adrenal fatigue & Hiv,Prostate Cancer so my situation was annoying then I keep searching for permanent cure online that's when I came to know of Dr jekawo herbal doctor hands whom god has blessed with ancestral powers and a gift to heal people with disease like .Cancers,Alzheimer's disease,HPV,Men & Women Infertility,Melanoma, Mesothelioma, Diabetes, Multiple myeloma, Parkinson's disease,Neuroendocrine tumors,Herpes, Hiv/Aids,Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma,, chronic diarrhea, COPD, Hepatitis... So I made a purchase of his herbal medicines and I have been watching my health for 6 years now and I actually confirmed that his herbal medicines are a permanent cure and I'm so happy that I came to know of his herbal healings.You can contact Dr Jekawo herbal doctor Email: if you went through exactly what I go through in terms of health conditions because to be honest there is more to learn about natural herbs than medical drugs.


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!
