Over the weekend my mother-in-law came to visit us. Sunday before she left, we decided to run out just her and I to shop a little. Something you must know about me is, I don’t like to shop usually. I have learned now that you just have to go with the right person! Her and I have so much in common, especially with decorating styles so it was so much fun! Kyle couldn’t believe we were gone almost 4 hours. I couldn’t either!
We first started at Goodwill to see if we could find anything cool. We actually found a couple great things! And watching decorating shows has helped me see beyond an old wooden shelf. A little paint and it could be something great!
We had fun at Goodwill and found a couple things. (We also left with a funny story of used lotion squirting in my nose. Laughing tears were shed for me) But the big stop we wanted to go to was Pier 1. I had been there a long time ago with my mom. I am guessing I was in junior high or high school. A time I did not appreciate it obviously.
I am not joking, I walked into that store and my jaw dropped. It was like the store was made for me! Everything was so pretty and the colors drew me in. Kathy and I walked up and down every inch of that store. A worker actually said to us, “Oh are you guys still here? That’s great!”
The only hard part about that place are the prices. I loved looking at everything but knew I couldn’t buy any of it. Kathy splurged on a really cute coffee mug but I went home with nothing. I am totally ok with that, but I don’t plan on going back there anytime soon. I did go home with a lot of ideas, which is great. Bring on the garage sales! (which I don’t like going to)
Here are some things I found at Pier 1 that I loved…
Can you tell I LOVE green??
I am also on the hunt for some great canisters for for the kitchen to hold flour and all of that. I saw these and fell in love.
I can’t wait to really start decorating and finishing our living room and kitchen. We have a tight budget but I’m ready for the challenge. Now I just need to finally decided on paint colors. I’ve waited way too long to do this
Happy Tuesday folks!
