friday faves [home edition]

Friday, November 5, 2010

these are things in our home i've bought and collected over the past two years that i think were good deals. they are not big ticket items but they certainly added some personality and warmth to our home when we moved almost two years ago.

Yesterday my husband moved several boxes from his garage to a separate storage location and i'm now wondering what were those things left unopened in those boxes we packed from our old home. i'm surely missing a few coffee tablebooks but i think i'll be fine. we always pack so much stuff (junk) in our house but i cant resist these lovelies. they are my new favorites and i'm glad i found them when i did!

Love this pattern and color

i immediately grabbed this damask and trellis tablecloth from homegoods earlier this year. also shown below on the leather wingback chair are a pair of keep calm and carry on pillows found at the same place (they've since been moved upstairs in the guestroom). i love the celadon and sea blue calm cool colors ~ just what the very popular slogan says!

Anniv flowers from Ben

Scented burlap sachets from etsy

here is a pair of burlap scented sachets i found at an etsy store that i adore. it hangs on the study frenchdoor knobs where it adds a touch of casual femininity on an otherwise formal masculine room. my husband does not know this yet but i may takeover this space pretty soon and it will undergo some major decor renovation!

Kiddie chair

a bunch of great finds from various places fills this guest room. the kid's pink chair is from ross ($ 40), headboard from jcpenney (twin size for under $ 239 on sale) and beddings from homegoods. i still need to get a sidetable and im debating on a mirrored one or a lucite sidetable. i have not made up my mind about that yet.

Milk vases from etsy
these lovely milk vases are from etsy too. they are so delicate and dainty to look at!

lastly, these milk bottles i used as vases were from homegoods yet again ~ scored them for under $ 5 each!

stay tuned for my next post soon ~ i'll share some photos of some things i liked/needed/wanted but was seriously not sure if i should take them home back then.....!
