Buying a Couch Sucks

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…

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

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

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

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?
