I just love shopping. It's called retail therapy and I'm addicted. Many times I stroll through the store looking, touching, wishing....but really have no desire to purchase unless it's something really, really special. I've come across two of those items lately. Two items that I simply could not go home without.
I often frequent stores like Marshall's, TJ Max and the like. You know, designer items at bargain prices? A new store opened up recently in Fort Collins called HomeGoods. I'm sure you've heard of this one, too. I know it mostly from that really happy guy on HGTV, David. He does the cool paintings and redoes the whole room for a family. Color something........
Anyhoo....I just love perusing these stores for my latest must-have. Here they are:
Very current...chevron is outrageously popular right now and HomeGoods had burnt orange, lime green, grass green, brown, red.....I had to have the green. Even better, when I got home I discovered that it matched my rug to perfection.
Number two was just purchased this last weekend at Marshalls. Too adorable and only $4.99. Really!!?? For under $5 I could have this adorable owl? Did you notice that it matches my new chevron throw and the rug?
I have learned that when you're decorating a home or a room to take your time. You can't just go out to the store one day and buy everything you need. These creative, decorative goodies must be acquired one at a time. If you follow this strategy you'll end up with a room that is dressed with treasures, not just things that match.
