Now, I must tell you that I LOVE HomeGoods! But I don’t get to go as often as I used to, because, since we moved, the closest one is now about 45 minutes away. (And when Hobby Lobby is just 15 minutes away…well, you can see where I spend more time!) However, we were in the neighborhood over the weekend, so here’s what caught my eye:
I have been LOVING white dishes lately.
Maybe it’s just that they look so crisp and clean and elegant, or because they’re neutral…I’m not really sure. But I DO enjoy them!
They’re just fabulous, as far as I’m concerned!
Here’s something else that’s been catching my eye:
Is that not beautiful?! Maybe because I’m thinking of switching the living room over to gray, white and yellow…or maybe because of the pretty white pattern, I don’t know. But it’s cheerful and fun and I like it!
And this color combination is another one I’m liking – the teal and red. (You’ll hear more about teal and red decor from me by the end of the week, by the way!)
But then I found one I liked better…
Is that not one of the most wonderful pieces you’ve ever seen?! So unique and “flowy”! This is one of the accent colors in our Master Bedroom, so I was thinking about using it as a jewelry tray…
…until I saw THIS one.
This one looked like it was MADE to go in our bedroom…and I WANTED IT.
Until I remembered that we have a cat burglar (literally) living with us. CoCo the kitty loves to snatch things off the dressers and the nightstands in the dead of night. (In fact, she once stole my engagement ring off the nightstand. After about 30 minutes of panicking and crying and threatening her life, we found it. In her toy box. Durn cat burglar.)
So then I decided that serving her up jewelry on platters wasn’t a good idea. Pretty as it was…it just wasn’t a good idea.
Speaking of CoCo…
…Are these not the cutest?! None for cats…all the more ammo I have in my arsenal for my fight for a puppy!
And I know you’ve heard of chalkboard labels, but what about jars that come with chalkboard labels already on them, and chalk to boot?!
That’s pretty nifty!
But just what is a “Kitchen Kong”? Anyone have one of these?
Does the gorilla actually help with the whisking?
Never mind, I found FALL stuff! Fall is my favorite season! And what I’m really liking this year are all these bundles of wheat.
It’s kind of funny that I like the wheat so much…when in real life I’m allergic to it. HA!
I didn’t end up purchasing anything, because, until I get INTO Fall and into the season of entertaining, I won’t know quite what I need. And I refuse to buy things if I don’t have a specific purpose already set for them. Then they just turn into clutter, and I can’t stand clutter!
Plus, I was a little distracted on this excursion…
**SIGH** Boys will be boys!
