Latest Additions: Signs & Baskets
When I went shopping over the weekend, I picked up a few things at IKEA, like 3 cork hot pads and a bathroom scale, which cost under $10 total. When I went to Home Goods, I was on a home decor high, seriously. I had a $25 gift card burning a hole in my pocket, and the place was HUGE! We had two hours to go through the entire store, so my sister and I flew down aisles like we were on a mission. I found quite a few things that I couldn’t leave without. I picked up a great striped sweater, a sweet clock (which I’ll post about as soon as I get it hung up on the wall), a kitty toy basket and a sign, which I got for $5 after my gift card was put towards it.
I hung the sign up in our mud room/foyer since we have nothing on the walls in that area, but before I show you it, let’s image that the light switch plate is white, the walls are a grey shade, or even a great green color, and the trim is white, okay? Use that imagination! The beige, on beige, on beige just doesn’t work well with anything.
It’s hard to ignore that beige, isn’t it?
Here was another one of my purchases from Home Goods. A new toy basket for Coco, since her old one didn’t match anything. It was only $7.99 and it has little paw prints down the front, and a bow on both ends. It holds all of her toys, and even leaves some room for more. And yes, she has catnip filled angry birds. :)
Coco loves the basket. As soon as I got home on Saturday night from shopping, she jumped right in it and rubbed all over it.
