Trip to Marshalls

Here are some fun things I found at my local Marshalls tonight!


$3 Clearance Candles
  Faux Boxwood and Succulent $8+ ( I will say the boxwood ones STINK to high heaven, it's weird, but good quality, not plastic, more papery )
 Awesome watercolor Cynthia Rowley Pillows $19 ( comes in red/browns too )
This Bone Inlay type tray was on clearance for $29, there were quite a few of them. You may see these on sites like high street market or one kings lane for well over $100
Lil Anthropologie esque bowls for $2.99
And this PB knockoff lamp... ( $149 )

$49 at Marshalls


Latest Randoms and Pins

Here are some randoms that have caught my eye in the last few weeks...

Espalier trees, I'd love these along my back fence!


Corner Trellis, what a great idea


World Market Ashton Tables $129


A built in closet ( via gilded mint)


Check out that sink ( via coastal living)


Threshold Shower Curtain $19 ( target )


Aaaaand this is genius, I need to do this. You can just hose the boots down without getting the insides soaked. Duh.

Speaking of shoes...loving neon Nike!


Spring at Target! ( i'm swooning over the milky blue lamps on the right )


PB Lamp


Totes from the Gap ( lots of colors available )





And art via Meredith Pardue


NYC eyebrow kit ( its under $3, and its a new fave of mine )..the left palette is a clear wax that shapes your brows and keeps them put, and the color stays put along with it!


Ikea Wardrobe and other updates

Welcome to the new year! This is the time of year I get the most anxious to turn my house upside down. Starting fresh and all that.
Over the holidays I started to despise my laundry/mud room. It got out of control unorganized and was just not functional for our needs.

Trust me, it NEVER stayed this clean. I wish I wouldve taken a pic of it in it's chaotic state. Those benches were all cluttered in projects/sewing stuff piled high. So I said enough! At 37 weeks pregnant I hurried to Ikea, bought a wardrobe that they are discontinuing, took 2 hours on my knees putting together this beast.

So much more functional, and it now stands beside the other Ikea wardrobe I have.
One contains all things crafts and sewing, the other contains my kids art stuff and husbands medical/work supplies. Feels good to fill this space and minimize at the same time.


This room is big, but it's not insulated ( summer project hopefully ) so it needed a big fat rug. Finally my favorite jute rug from rugsusa went on sale to a ridiculous price, this is a 5x8 and I think I paid $52. Its the same one I have in my entry. I highly recommend it. It DOES collect quite a bit of dirt, so you have to stay on top of vacuuming it and mopping underneath.

Have I mentioned my obsession with coral? I love it. The real stuff. Obsessed.


and my latest Goodwill find, this lil stool for $4. My daughter uses it in her play kitchen, cant decide if I want to recover it or not.


My goal for 2013 is to stay with my gut instinct on decor decisions, and plan out purchases before buying, no more on whim crap.

Current Needs:

A table lamp for my daughters room..budget $30 or less. ( hers busted )
A nightstand ( or 2 ) for our bedroom..budget $100 or less ( sold the others )
Blinds for my daughters room..$100 via overstock for both. ( yikes, but they're blackout, so worth it )

Stay tuned!
