It's no surprise that I LOVE shopping! Maybe just as much as I love tearing apart my house and redecorating. I don't spend much money on new clothes, expensive purses, or manicures, which leaves money in the budget for updating our home. If I spend in one area, I cut back in another. Whatever makes you happy, right?
A few weeks ago my mom and I went on a little shopping trip. I really just
We stopped in Pier One first and after I got through the pillow section (does anyone else gravitate to this section first or is it just me?) I spotted the most perfect clock.
You all are probably sick of hearing me talk about this clock, but it truly is the most perfect clock. I remember seeing a very similar one (if not the same exact one) on Magnolia Market, but before I could make the purchase it was sold out. I couldn't bring myself to buy the one from Pier One, but now that it's $40 off I might have to splurge and just buy the darn thing.
Just look how beautiful it looks in Cottage in the Oaks fall mantel. Enough said.
Antlers (similar in silver)
You may remember it from my Fall Home Tour.
After we left Pier One we headed to JoAnn Fabrics. I always love checking out the aisles that are full of metal bins and baskets.
Hobby Lobby is another place that has so much more than fabric and craft supplies. They have a great selection of knobs (usually 50% off) and unique decor and art pieces.
I went specifically for this wood "Hello" sign, but had such a hard time not walking out
with my arms full.
We also ran into HomeGoods where I bought the most perfect shower curtain. It was a mere $16.99 and looked like something straight out of West Elm.
It was the entire jumping off point for our hall bathroom makeover. I'm just waiting on a few finishing touches and new faucet (ours is currently broke with no hot water) before I share the full reveal.
I love all the great storage options that HomeGoods offers, including this little metal drawer system? The combination of wood, green and metal is simply perfect.
They were only $7.99 for two towels and I actually went to 2 different HomeGoods looking for more. I've been using them in the kitchen and bathroom and love them, LOVE!
I've been on the hunt for a mudroom bench for months now. I really wanted this one to be a perfect fit and loved the combination of wood and wrought iron. I didn't have a tape measure with me, so I did what any person would do and improvised with a highly accurate foot measurement. (Insert sarcasm here.) Once home, I measured the space with my feet and was sure the bench would fit. The next day I took another trip back to HomeGoods (this time with a tape measure) and darn if the bench wasn't about 2 inches too long! Ahh!
I didn't walk out with the bench, however, I did end up buying a few other items on my second trip back. Why is it so hard to walk out of HomeGoods empty handed?
I'm really starting to think I have slight obsession with soaps and towels :)
