World Market Napkins! Art? Pillows?

Check out these awesome napkins from World Market...

This first set is very Kaufmann esque, jacobean type that is pretty timeless to me..4 for $11.96 ( WOULD MAKE 2 PILLOWS! )

And on the opposite side of the spectrum are these Ikat Dot Napkins that I'm crazy about..4 for $15.96
I googled napkin pillows just now and the wonderful Centsational Girl has a tutorial for NO SEW napkin pillows...and she even used World Market ones :) Go Here!

Sneak Peak

Here's a peak at the chicken coop/ brick path that we'll be finished with this weekend:
these bricks are a pain in my arse...almost done.

Things around the house..

I love my house. My living room can be so cozy because it's pretty small. There is no overhead lighting so I'm dependant on lamps, but it's ok by me. I'm pretty proud of the deals I've got over the years. This is an example of one corner of my house, that is worth a lot more than I paid...

Coffee Table: Pottery Barn Clearance $129
Antique Boxes: Free
Lanterns $16 pair
Pillows ( 2 bought, 2 handmade ) $45ish
Pier One Lamp $39 Clearance
Crate and Barrel Nesting Tables $149 clearance
Coral on ebay $15
Bamboo Shades Overstock $40ish
Sofa ( PB knockoff from a local design store ) $599


On another note, I'm out of room in my dining room buffet, so I'm researching what style I want to go with next. This is an OLD pic..it's now crammed with entertaining pieces and china. And I'm tired of the ol' Pottery Barn wine shelves. It's the biggest wall in the downstairs (no windows), so it can handle a bigger piece sideboard. The search is on.

Quick Hello

My laptop has been out of commission and I've been on vaca. So I'll be blogging in the next day or so. We've added chickens to our backyard, lots of newness coming to my kitchen and a couple other projects you'll be interested in.

I also jumped out of a plane at 13,080 feet. I fell 180 mph alongside my sisters :)
