January Prime Purchases

Welcome to 2024! Goodness, hard to believe another year has dawned! We are still in "recovery mode" here from our family Christmas.  I've been knee deep in laundry and cleaning but today should get me "back on track."  I have black eyed peas on the stove, ham ready to go in the oven and cabbage ready to cook.  But, for now, here's my first Prime Purchases of 2024.


Perhaps I've been living under a rock or perhaps these are a relatively new item.  I have no clue but I can tell you that I have always loved fountain pens and had no idea that they now come disposable.  What!  I haven't had a fountain pen in more years than I can remember but when these arrived I got plum excited.  They write just like a "real" fountain pen and I especially love to address cards with them.  It's the little things folks, never forget that. ~chuckle~


I am becoming a big fan of acrylic.  This is a medium size bowl and perfect for a fruit salad, which is what I bought it for.  I especially like acrylic because it is very lightweight and I love the slant of this bowl.  Very good looking.


There are times when I need a small clear bowl that I can use with any set of dishes.  These fit the bill.  They are perfect for fruit salad,  scooped desserts and ice cream.  And, these are so pretty and very affordable.  I really do not like to buy anything in the dish category at this point in my life but sometimes I can't help myself.  ~smile~


And, did you know about these?  I sure didn't until mid Dec and I saw someone post them on Facebook.  I had to check them out.  They can be put in the freezer to keep your cold drinks colder longer.  They come with slip on sleeves that makes them easier to hold.  AND, they can be put in the dishwasher and you can order lids for them and the grandkids love them and so do I.


If you've been hanging around here for very long, you know that I LOVE bags.  I do not go a day that I do not use one or more.  I use them for all sorts of things, one being carry things back and forth to my Daddy.  And, the cuter the bags, the better I like them.  These are super nice as they have nice handles.  


These are so nice to be faux.  I have a smaller size pearl necklace and earrings but wanted a larger size and saw these.  And, love that the earrings are pearls all the way around.  It's a good looking set that I will enjoy.  Sometimes pearls are the perfect accessory.


Now that Christmas is behind us, it's time to think about Valentine's Day.  I love Valentine's Day and enjoy having a couple of tops to celebrate the upcoming day.  I ran across this sweater and thought it was so cute.  It is so soft, well made and comes in several color combinations.  I got the grey with the black heart.  Think it will be cute with black jeans. 

Abundant blessings to you and yours in 2024!
