happy :)

Home Goods Happy!
Recently went to source some ideas for projects and to continue my search for a small side table.

Have to say it was not as full as usual, but still managed to find some great things to take pictures of to share!

Here you go...are you Home Goods happy?

Great outdoor options...

love the modern lines of these planters

more planters, i think the big ones would be great for a container garden or a small tree

great outdoor seating option

woven planters

great baskets for the one with the painted number could do this with a basket you already own too...SPRAY PAINT and DIY stencil

cute little tray table for serving drinks this summer on the patio

perfect patterned pillow

rustic console with great storage

this chair and I were meant to be together

great sign

I sooooooo wanted these Ralph Lauren lamps!!! But we went our separate ways and will never see each other again.  I know this ...because you think on anything in this will be gone once you go back.

and lastly this sweet little stuffed elephant for a nursery

Happy Shopping!

Light and Bright

I love creams, whites and muted colors in furniture, accessories and textiles.  This European inspired look is really hot in interiors right now.  The look is crisp, clean and ethereal.

I wonder would my house stay this clean and "white"?  ABSOLUTELY not, but I love the look anyway.   Here are a few inspirational interiors that "do" this look so well.

Check out this Houston Home Tour ....beautiful home!
I could move in tomorrow!

How are you?  It has been a while!

So I will start with my excuse for the delay in posting anything for a while...  I have been really focused on some, much needed, home projects.

Every heard the saying the cobbler's children have no shoes?  Well, that's me.  I never seem to have the time or money to focus on my own house.  So I decided it was time to get a few updates done.  And as you can imagine one thing led to another.  So....hopefully, I will be able to post some pics soon once I have some things completed.

Until then a few random thoughts of things I have seen and loved...and just so we are clear....that IS the USUAL type of thought I have.  Random. 

Love these new Saybrook rugs from Ballard Designs....and even better they are indoor/outdoor.  These rugs are great under a kitchen table/eating area - because they are durable and allow for easy clean-up.  Great pattern and colors!

I love, love, love this lantern!!!  It's from Lowe's and very affordable.  Wouldn't it be great in an entry or two of them together over a big kitchen island?

Check out this armless settee from Nate Berkus HSN.  Great solution for an area where you don't have a lot of room but need comfortable and chic seating. 

Love the fabric Cross Section in Charcoal from Waverly.

Fun and functional table from World Market.  Round coffee table in hammered steel creates a rich texture with functional storage (the top comes off).

Have a great week back to my projects!
