Fun Finds and BIG News...

Well, yesterday my mom and I took full advantage of one of my last days of summer.  We met up in Murfreesboro and shopped until we dropped. :)  Such a fun day!

While browsing the usuals (Target, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Hobby Lobby), I stumbled upon a few cheap decor items that I just had to have...


A darling little yellow pillow!!!  I had seen this very pillow showcased on the Young House Love blog and loved it at first sight.  It also helps that it has rosettes sewn on it--I'm loving that in clothing too!

Back of the pillow...also cute!


In case you were wondering why I wanted a random yellow pillow, I already have a yellow thing going in the living room.  Remember those houndstooth pillows???


I also have a red thing going...and I definitely need to break up the yellow a bit with it.  I still have not figured out exactly how I want to arrange the pillows, but I love the new addition.


The next find is NOT this lamp. :)  I did purchase this at Marshalls way back when, but I simply wanted to show a bit of the color scheme I have going in this spare bedroom.  Obviously, we have a brown/aqua thing going...


So I found this little piece at TJ Maxx for $9.99.  I liked the uniqueness of the piece, and it helps to bring even more of the blue into the room.  Don't you love cheap finds???

Last, but certainly not least, I have found something I have had my eye on for many moons.  Why I choose to search so long for seemingly minor decorating items...I just don't know.  But yesterday Hobby Lobby came to my rescue and gave me 50% off on this little diddy...


Why do I need the "and" symbol in my home?  Frankly, I have no idea.  But I love it!  I see these puppies all the time in home office pictures and such, and I always feel like they are interesting additions.  Truth be told, this little guy was 5 bucks on sale--I fell even deeper in love. :)  What does Andy have to say about this odd little find?  Not much.  I think I lost him with decorating long ago...starting with my red Buddha head in the dining room.

In much BIGGER news...
We are set to have a COMPLETED master bathroom by the end of the day on Saturday.  Remember that tiled floor from long ago???  Yeah, we haven't done much of anything since then.  We were waiting on a bit of help, and we seem to have all the help we need lined up for Saturday.  As always, I will take lots of pictures and will use way too many exclamation marks as I blog about the finished product. Deal with it. :)

Have a great Friday!  To all my fellow teachers out there, enjoy the last full day of summer!
