Well, it seems as though this week is filled with a bunch of randomness, ha ha!
Let's see, first, another new necklace for the shoppity shop :)

Next, I finally found a lamp shade for my sunny yellow lamp. Jane of all Crafts reminded me that I could take off the harp all together and use one of those shades that goes directly on the lamp base under the bulb (this one being from Target). Duh! Why didn't I think of that!? Thanks Jane (aka Andi)!

Third, this deal was WAY too good to pass up. I'll start by mentioning that we are not quite ready to move Hayden to a big girl bed (aka, she hasn't figured out how to crawl out of her crib yet). But, when we do, I want her big girl bedding to be FAB! My sis and I were at Home Goods the other day and I majorly scored in the clearance section. Check it out :)

The perfect color turquoise coverlet for $15 (Um, yeah, I'll take it!)!! And then, sitting right beside it as if magic angels placed them there for me:

This  perfectly mis-matched and adorable pair of "Liberty of London-esque" pillows. Aren't they pretty!!?? They have the perfect yellow color in them that will match her dresser, and pink to match her walls. Even the back of them are cute!!


Um, yeah. that was for the pair. I'LL TAKE THEM!!!! Woo hoo! Is it bad if I try to teach her how to climb out of her crib so we can get this ball rolling!!?? ha ha!

And last but certainly not least, here is a teaser "before" pic of my new dining room table and 6 chairs (YIPPPEEEEEEEE). Sorry, had to get that out of my system. I can't wait to get started!! I impulsively sold my old dining room chairs on Craig's List about a month ago so we've been using random mis-matched one from the garage. I can't wait to have it all done and fancy!! Stay tuned!!!

(note, there are only 3 of the chairs in this pic. The other three are in my car).

Happy hump day everyone :)

  10. Hi Ali, Hey you really scored some great "stuff". I love that lamp. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. Appreciate your visit so much. Hope all is well with you and the fam. Hugs, Karie

  11. Ali!!! I'm *completely* salivating over your chairs (and the Homegoods finds for that matter! LOL) I have a thing for caned furniture so I can't wait to see how you re-do that set.

    P.S.--You're slowly converting me to liking yellow. That lamp is such a gorgeous, soft shade of yellow. And your new (well, not so new, since I'm so freakin' behind on reading my favorite blogs...) blog header is adorable too.


I think I'm a comment-a-holic :)
