Amazon Lately

Another month of random purchases is in the books and today I'm going to talk about what has shown up on my doorstep recently ;)

Like most people we've been spending a TON of time outdoors and have been working on getting our patio and pool area cleaned up and ready for summer since we didn't get to enjoy it as much as we would have liked last year.  I ordered two of  these hummingbird feeders and can't wait for the rain to let up a bit so we can start attracting hummingbirds!  The house that we stayed in in Vail two years ago had SO MANY hummingbirds and we all loved watching them.


Dave and I recently upgraded our bed to a King size (AMEN!) and so I've been making a few bedding/bed related purchases as well.

...  an additional silk pillowcase to match our current ones (my FAVORITE to sleep on)...

... the BEST duvet insert in a bigger size...

We also needed  a box spring and this one was the right price and easy to assemble.

The headboard is upholstered a creamy color and so I ordered  these navy shams to go on the euro pillows at the back so they could contrast against the upholstery.  I have no idea what 'm doing but we'll see how it all looks together once the nightstands come in and we do a few other little things.

I asked for windchimes for Mother's Day and Dave picked out  this set and I'm OBSESSED!  They're lower tones and SO PRETTY!

Mason picked out a couple of new books.  Luke has read the I Survived series but the graphic novel versions are new and Mason is OBSESSED!

Everyone in my house loves Dog Man and  the new release is apparently really good :) 

We finally found  a ball that Rosie hasn't been able to destroy on the first day - it's made for horses and other large animals and she loves it!  You can actually fill it with water or sand to make it heavier but it works perfectly for her as is.

Mason lost his favorite hat and he asked for a new one for summer.  I LOVE a baseball cap on boys and grabbed him  this one because it was next day shipping and would go with a lot of things. 


I ordered  this large calendar to fill out and hang on the fridge to give Mason and G a visual of what our summer will look like and when things are happening.  

We needed  new pool basketballs and I ordered two of these and they're the perfect size. 

And last, but not least, I needed a 16th birthday gift for a friends daughter who got a car for her birthday and thought  this car vacuum set would be funny and practical.

HAPPY Monday, friends!!!

  1. I just added that calendar to my cart! Thank YOU!!

  2. I want the hummingbird feeder and the car vacuum. I feel old.

  3. Ooh! We're gonna have to check out those I Survived Graphic Novels! They'd probably be great for Bowen. Thank you!

  4. I love these posts. I hosted a zoom Amazon lately "party" during quarantine. Never too old for a show & tell!! ❤

  5. My grandson LOVES the "I Survived" good!
    Love your Amazon finds!

  6. We do not have a hummingbird feeder but our flowers attract hummingbirds. Earlier this spring we had a hummingbird nest in one of our rose trees! It was so fun! Two itty bitty babies were born.
