Let's Go Shopping: What Caught my Eye and What I Bought

Wow, you all completely blew me away with your support regarding yesterday's post.  It's one thing to share your faults with family and friends, but it's another to share them with the whole world to see.  I knew I couldn't possibly be the only one who doesn't have a spotless and clutter free home, but you all made me feel so normal and I thank you for that.  I definetely feel better sharing my less than perfect spaces and I'm so glad you all can relate.

I'm sure my stress and anxiety about my home won't reduce until the clutter is gone, but at least it's out in the open and I can work on taking back my spaces.  Until then, who doesn't get a mood boost from a little retail therapy?  It's been awhile since I've shared a shopping trip with you all, so let's do a little shopping together, shall we?

home decor from Target, HomeGoods, Hobby Lobby and Walmart.

A few months ago I shared steals and deals from Walmart (yes, you can get stylish decor from Walmart!)  and I can't believe I left this gorgeous weathered wood coffee table out of the list.  I spotted it the day I picked up some bottle brush trees and thought it was a great find for $149.00.

I am lucky enough to have four HomeGoods within 25 minutes of my home, so I tend to visit them quite often.  Many days spending my lunch break wondering the aisles looking for great deals.

This gorgeous pillow was on clearance, I just wish it was a color that worked in our home.  Isn't it pretty?

I've mentioned a few times that I have a thing for hand towels and glass hand soap bottles.  On this particular trip I bought the two blue and white striped towels with fringe to add to my stash.  If you are able to get your hands on a few I highly recommend them.

 Yes, I would be the one who broke up a group of four chairs to purchase only one.

I really like the look of mixed material furniture and thought this wood and metal console table was perfect.  It reminds me a lot of my entryway table that I also found at HomeGoods.

I'm kicking myself for not getting this darts scoreboard for my husband.  It looks easy enough to make though, so maybe I'll add it to my "To Do" list.

 I even found the trunk that I purchased more than three years ago!  It's still one of my favorite pieces and has been great for storing and hiding toys in our living room.

Just like HomeGoods, Hobby Lobby is another store that I could wonder around for hours and find so many amazing decor pieces.  The thing I love most about Hobby Lobby is that they have AMAZING sales and always have a 40% off coupon that you can use on regular priced items.  Ahh, wouldn't it be nice if HomeGoods had 40% off coupons too?  

As soon as I spotted this deer print I knew it would be perfect for the Christmas gallery wall in our entryway.

Have any of you been sucked into Target's holiday section?  I love using red in my Christmas decor and Target definetely has some great red pieces.

Somehow I managed to step away from the Christmas decor and ended up seeing this fabulous gold lamp.

I already own three gold desk lamps from Target (here and here ) and thought this one would be great for beside tables or kid spaces.

As much as I would love to go shopping this weekend I'll probably be elbow deep in decluttering and organizing!  Have a lovely weekend, friends!
