Fun Friday


My mind is in one of those random modes today. That means this is one of those posts that is just going to hop from topic to topic.


I can't believe tomorrow is already St. Patrick's day and that Easter is just around the corner. If you are looking for ideas for a centerpiece for your table, check out these cute ideas shared by my niece Amy. She has created some adorable centerpieces. I love the idea of using jelly beans for this one.


But this one is my favorite. I forgot to ask her where she got the egg placemat. Maybe she will leave a comment and let us know. The flowers look so real, I wonder where she found those as well. Guess next time I need to ask more questions. 


How cute is this little bowl? I saw it on Etsy one day. Isn't it just adorable.


Wouldn't you just love to set down to this table for breakfast.



I am absolutely infatuated with this crystal and pearl necklace charm.


Another table setting that makes me want to pull up a chair and make myself comfortable.


I want to share something with you that I have been checking out. It is called Listia.com. It is a site similar to E-Bay, except you can't make any profit. The purpose is to post things you want to get rid of for free and let the buyer pay the shipping. You earn credits to bid on auctions of items you would like to have. Just by signing up and adding an item to sale, I started out with over 600 credits. There are all kinds of items on there. You bid like you do on E-bay. I am going to show you a few things I'm bidding on in the hopes that no one goes on and outbids me when they see it on here. :)

This was just too beautiful not to "bid" on. The cost will be whatever the exact shipping is. It should run around $5.00. Wouldn't be a bad price for this.


I have looked and looked for a crumb brush for years. But I haven't been able to find one I like. I really like this one and the shipping would be $3.00


I am looking for some milk glass vases and this set of three comes with a cute little napkin holder as well. The cost would be whatever the exact shipping is on these.


This next item is not one I am bidding on because I don't have enough credits yet. I need to list some more of my items. You get 100 credits for each item you list for auction and then you get the number of credits that the winning bidder had bid. This item is at over 600 credits right now. The cost of this one would is FREE shipping so if I were to bid and win, I would just get it. I love those kind of bargains.


Check out this set of three Sherbet cups. They are going for over 1200 credits right now and whoever wins them will only pay $6.00 for shipping and the seller will have 1200 credits she can spend.


People even place brand name items such as Coach purses on Listia.com. This one has 41 people bidding on it and the bid is currently in the 40,000 area. Shipping is free. But imagine what the person who listed it can get for 40,000 credits.


These are from Crate and Barrel. Right now, the bid is only 100 credits and the shipping is free. This would be a great buy for anyone!


I could go on and on, but you get the idea. Anyone can sign up for Listia.com, but if I send you an invite, you can get 100 extra credits for signing up. You can sign up to get the free 100 extra credits if you use this link http://www.listia.com/signup/1138442.  Registration is free and easy. If you would like me to send you an invite, just comment with your email address or send me a request to my email at mamawsplace@gmail.com and I'll send you an invite to get you on your way.

The flowers came from a store here called Crafts 2000 and the placemat came from Kohls for $2.00.
