HomeGoods Shopping Spree

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! This past Saturday, my cousin and I went on a HomeGoods spree.  We hit up 3 HomeGoods and 1 T.J. Maxx home section.  It was great! We both ended up getting a lot of good deals.  I scored a bunch of stuff for my brother-in-law's living room, which he just gave me permission to decorate.  And for myself, I got a striped rug, glass lamp, and a chevron bench. 

Let's start with this jug glass lamp, that can be opened and filled with stuff.  It is in our basement family room.  I can't wait to fill it with things like pumpkins, pinecones and maybe some seashells for right now! (Sorry for the yellowy picture.)

Then I got this rug, LOVE it.  But, big but, I have no where to put it.  I tried the basement in the couch area, but it wasn't right.  This rug is 5x8 and was on clearance for $39!  I just can't bring myself to return it.

My last significant purchase for myself, is this chevron bench.  I needed a new bench for the vanity I use in one of our extra bedrooms.  This one is comfy, cute and opens up for storage.

 It's a huge improvement over the previous stool I used, which was slowly falling apart.

Love my acquisitions.  HomeGoods made me one happy girl this weekend!

Too many Sunbursts?

Can you have too many sunburst mirrors? This thought kept me from ordering this Target sunburst for a while, but last week I added it to my online shopping cart for the hundreth time and actually completed the order.  There was a small 10% discount on it when I checked out, so with shipping it came out to around $30.

I have one gold sunburst mirror over our fireplace mantel.  This one is going over a chest of drawers in one of our guest rooms.  This room has a lot of boxy furniture and artwork in it so I think this mirror will help break it up. 

What do you think?  I think I need more sunbursts in my life.  Love them.
