Why does it suck? Because you start out thinking this will be easy - I like sitting, I know how to sit, I should be able to find something I enjoy sitting on. WRONG. There's so much more that you have to consider. Just hop into the Macy's Furniture gallery and pop your bum on a few different options, and you'll see what I mean...
Where we gleefully share our stories of thrift store trips while on our travels.
Vintage Mason Jar – SCORE
I mentioned it briefly in yesterday's post. While strolling the aisles of random cast-off items at my favorite Goodwill, I found these puppies, just sitting there on the shelf. They weren't specially marked. Just sitting in the midst of the glassware, minding their own business. You better believe I swooped in, tore them from their… Continue reading Vintage Mason Jar – SCORE
You Light Up My Life ~ Bookshelf Lights
We're still all aglow from our recent Engagement - no date set just yet, but we're getting there with the wedding planning. So much to think about! In the meantime, this fabulous update occurred (actually back in February, but who's counting?) For Valentine's Day, we actually celebrated at Ikea of all places. Our local store… Continue reading You Light Up My Life ~ Bookshelf Lights
Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape
We have a pretty big-deal holiday coming up. Thanksgiving. Ok ok, sure, no biggie. It's a day to hang out with family, watch football, and eat a ridiculous amount of food. That's not a big deal. BUT -- THIS YEAR WE'RE HOSTING. Yes, that's right, we are cooking the bird and the pies and all… Continue reading Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape
Tray-Tastic Clearance Shopping
Earlier this week I showed you some art that was hung up a tad last-minute... It's a work in progress, but I wanted to balance the whole wall a bit better. So let's take a look below...There, on the console table, are a few old objects and a few new. You should recognize the frame… Continue reading Tray-Tastic Clearance Shopping
Fall is Here!
The weather has finally turned, the air is crisp, and hoodie season is upon us. I LOVE this weather! But given that we just upgraded the tv, we decided to go simple on the fall decor, especially the budget. So I pulled out a few items from last year and picked up a bag of… Continue reading Fall is Here!
Double Three Dollar Deals
This weekend was spent going through the rigmarole to officially become a resident of Pennsylvania. It was a more complicated process than it really needs to be, and there were a few moments of identity crisis. I've been a proud (SOUTH!) Jersey girl my whole life.... and now Pennsylvania is next to my name in… Continue reading Double Three Dollar Deals
A Pillar of Inspiration from Target
Raise your hand if you're a Target fan. Yes, a room full of people who appear to want to high-five me. Excellent. Then you'll know how this goes. So, I found myself running in to my local Target for a 'rare' (so, only my 3rd stop that week) trip to peruse the latest decor and… Continue reading A Pillar of Inspiration from Target
Milky Window Gallery
Sometimes you get an idea... and you just have to try it. Usually I have pinterest to blame. Milk glass has fascinated me since I was a kid. My parents' house backs to a creek and woods and I used to scour those woods for 'treasures' as a kid. There were all kinds of antique… Continue reading Milky Window Gallery
Styled Containment of Dresser Clutter
For the longest time I have been on the hunt for one thing. A tray. I know, I know, I have a ZILLION trays, what do I need another one for? I get it, I get it, there are a LOT of trays featured here. But there's a special one I've been on the hunt… Continue reading Styled Containment of Dresser Clutter
ReStore & Anthro Look the Same
Ok, I'll cop to it, these photos are from two seperate shopping trips. But honestly, there are times where the only difference between Anthropologie and our local ReStore is the price and how much dust you'll have to wipe off your purchase before using it. But really, I'm in love with Anthro's china. All of… Continue reading ReStore & Anthro Look the Same
I Hope They’ll Covet This Wine Cork Trivet
In Honor of the Dare to DIY Challenge levied by Decor and the Dog with Maybe Matilda, NewlyWoodwards, and Two Twenty One, I spent the weekend finally getting on a few projects that are a bit more holiday appropriate. Including getting my DIY Gifting on, along with this project - The Wine Cork Trivet. While… Continue reading I Hope They’ll Covet This Wine Cork Trivet
Weekend Score! ~ Crystal Candlesticks
I needed a quick little piece of glassware to replace a nice yankee candle I broke, so a quick trip to Goodwill was in order. And of COURSE I left with way more than a single glass candle holder. Well I came home with two extras I hadn't planned on. These beauties may look familiar...… Continue reading Weekend Score! ~ Crystal Candlesticks
A Little Fall Decorating (And shameless deal bragging!)
So, it has officially been Fall for about a week now. I've given in and enjoyed my first Pumpkin Spice Latte (Free with my living social coupon after 3 friends bought the deal from my link), and it was just as wonderful as I remembered it to be. Which means now it is finally time… Continue reading A Little Fall Decorating (And shameless deal bragging!)
WEEKEND SCORE – Goodwill Meets Target?
While on an adventure to a Target we don't typically frequent North of Pittsburgh, we came across a 'legit' looking Goodwill. It was previously an Ekerd and took advantage of what was the drive through pharmacy and instead allowed you to drive up and donate. Well we couldn't pass that up! And boy was I… Continue reading WEEKEND SCORE – Goodwill Meets Target?
