Sorry Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware and (insert name here) overly priced home decor store.

I'm breaking up with you. I've found a new love. One that doesn't make me pay insane prices for cute stuff and force my home to look like everyone else out there.

I'm tired of being just one of the crowd. (You saw that Friend's episode, right?)

Yes, I may still read those love letters you send me in the mail quite often, and I may have some longings for the pretties on your pages, but I will no longer be a slave to your prices.

I've found someone new. With lots more character, lots more options and much less of a commitment when it comes to my money. And I drop by so much more often to see them because I never know what treasures I uncover each time we are together!

Meet: the consignment shop.

Behold, evidence of my new-found love...

These two are the newest additions to my room remodel, currently making lots of progress. Walls are almost completely painted, floors are in boxes in the hallway, ready for installation once the painting is complete. New carpet for our living room comes tomorrow! Giddy with excitement!!


  1. Consignments shops are awesome. What was once old is new again!

  2. There's a furniture consignment shop near us that opened recently and I've been wanting to go check it out. We have quite the list of furniture we want to buy, but everything we like is SO expensive.

  3. Great finds! Don't forget too!

  4. Wow. I'm impressed with your finds.

  5. ooh I can't wait to see it all finished! :) ps gave you a lil shout out on the blog today ;)

  6. awesome finds!! I love finding deals! p.s. I am having a giveaway going on :)

  7. Its refreshing to know there are great home decor finds out there that don't cost a fortune! Good for you!! :) I LOVE the sofa!

  8. I must spend more time in Durham other than at the DPAC. Great finds!

  9. I just have to say Pottery Barn stuff is crap - the poorest of poor quality. My friend/neighbor works there and they've now started in-home consulting to sell their big crappy furniture to poor unsuspecting people. Great display concept, great broadband marketing and all but - geesh.....just sayin' :o)

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
