So it should come as no surprise that I really dig Ampersands. I mean, I have an entire pinterest board for them. There’s one in our blog header above (though you can’t use an & in a URL. Bummer.) and I seem to be drawn to them every time I end up in HomeGoods.
So Naturally I have a few around. You’ve seen a few around here. Like our very first ReStore score:
Or again on our antique table when we shared with you our intercom art:
And let’s not forget the golden ampersand score I made at the ReStore (we get a lot of good stuff there!) around the holidays!
And our first glimps of my favorite two ampersands was from early April when we discussed spring-ifying the apartment with stripes and flowers.
The big metal one was a Target find last year, while the white one is a HomeGoods snag on clearance. But they were looking kinda drab. And with our new Candle Pillar now occupying this side of the TV console, they needed to move…
…to the other side of the table! Hah. I haven’t shown this side of the room too much – at least not in full. The console will eventually be replaced with the Ikea Hemnnes TV stand but we’ve got a few projects before we can get there.
To add some more spring-summer touches, I popped a few faux succulents under the cloche jar we made from an old light fixture. The succulents were on clearance for .99 cents at Michael’s. I picked them up the same day I bought the cherry blossom sprays.
As for what was here, typically we keep a trio of candle sticks here but I moved them across the room to join the model ship Bill’s been working on and the greeting card art I made from a card I bought in Richmond.
So with a little shuffling around the room, we have some simple updates to keep my decor ADD at bay, and satisfy my love of Ampersands.
