I recently decided to put to use that Home Goods gift card I won, yay! Sure I could have gone the practical route and bought towels, sheets and such. But really, what fun is that? So I decided to pick up a few trinkets instead. Then after I went to Home Goods, I hopped on over to Michael’s Arts & Crafts to buy a few more goodies.
Now, Chris and I don’t live together. We both still live with our parents. I know what you’re thinking. How is that possible?! Well, with a slow economy, and Chris and I wanting to buy than rent, we opted to live with our families for as long as possible to save as much money as possible. Which poses a challenge when trying to buy items for a home we don’t actually own yet.
But I have at least figured out our color scheme for the main areas such as the kitchen, dining room, and living room/family room. Walls and furniture will most likely be neutral, with shades of brown and tan. I want all the accent pieces in fall colors: deep reds, burnt oranges, and muted yellows. I kept that in mind while I was shopping.
From Home Goods:
I thought this sign would be cute to put by a doorway.
This lantern will be great either on a mantle or an end table. I chose a flameless candle because I don’t like the idea of real candles.
This throw really does feel like bunny fur. It’s so soft and cozy.
This is another lantern, but I’m going to use is as a vase.
I plan to place this bunch of faux flowers is the above vase. I do have to cut them because they are a wee-bit long.
The vase and flowers are separate pieces but I think they work nicely together.
An overused phrase, I know, but I still like it.
A swirly candle holder with flameless tea lights. It was actually with the Halloween decorations, but I think this will work year round.
This is not from either store. My best friend bought it for me for my birthday (January) but I thought I’d include it with the group.
Okay class, smile nice for the camera ; )
