Friday Finds Under Fifty: The Fruit Fresh Edition

Ah, spring! One of my favorite things about the season is the abundance of delicious, fresh fruit coming into the peak of flavor. Yesterday, I was at my friendly neighborhood grocery store when I was nearly bowled over by the luscious fragrance of ripe strawberries. And they were on sale, too!

In honor of the event, I’m celebrating fruit in today’s column.

One of my all-time favorite fruits has to be apricots. They’re the perfect balance of sweet and tart, and I adore the texture of them as much as the aroma and the flavor. Imagine smelling like apricots and cream.

philosophy apricots & cream shower and shine 3-pc collection You can do just that with this apricots & cream bath set by Philosophy. You’ll get a 24 oz bottle of shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath, a 24 oz bottle of body lotion, and a 0.5 oz flavored lip shine. Delicious and clean. I like!

I also like the price. The retail value is $67.00. But you’re going to race over to QVC.com to get it. Their regular price is a thrifty $52.50, but right now you can get the superfantastic introductory price of just $48.06. Again, delicious.

Joy Underfoot

I was amused to see this cheerful, colorful rug

Melancholy Rug by Colorfields given the clearly inappropriate name of ‘Melancholy.’ I, for one, can’t help smiling when I look at it.

My smile got even wider when I realized the great deal it is at Smart Bargains. Originally it ran up to $190.00, but it’s on sale now. You can get the 2’2″ x 7’10” runner for just $89.99, or you can get the 3’6″ x 5’6″ version for a mere $99.99. That’s a great deal on 100% wool with hand hooked loop pile and handsewn edges for durability.

But hurry if you want this one! They’re nearly gone!

Go on. Make your feet happy.

You May Have the Floor

But I think I’ll take this attractive Daisa rug I found at Rugsale.com. It’s made of imported New Zealand wool and hand-tufted in a cheerful design of green, red, yellow, and purple. What could be better for warming both toes and hearts in the cold winter months?
