The good news is not a lot has happened to warrant a blog post, but to get going again I thought I'd post a couple of additions to the 'ol homestead that I adore.
First is my little deal of table. I'd long admired and pined for this table from Ballard Designs, but even at a somewhat decent price, it just wasn't one of those aforementioned necessities. Then one day at Kohl's I cruised past the clearance section and found this table from the Elle decor collection for 70%(!) off, which if memory serves was $29.99. Now that I could make happen. Here she sits right where I imagined:
It's not exactly the same as the Ballard version, but close enough for the pretty price.
My other lovely came to me in an even lovelier way. I won a Z-Gallerie gift card give-way at Centsational Girl, one of my favorite (and one of the first I'd ever read) blogs. I truly let out a squeal when I got her email that I'd won. Z-Gallerie is right up my alley in terms of design. Although, there are probably no less than 100 things I'd love to have from there, I knew instantly what I'd get with it. This urn was calling my name the first time I ever saw it, but (again) the price was yelling at me to run away. I knew that I probably could not (or maybe its 'would' not) bring myself to spend that much on an urn, but with a gift card that I'd WON, I was doing it.
And there we have it, couple little things that just give me a bit of thrill each time they catch my eye. Oh and also, so glad to be back.
