I swung by HomeGoods the other day after work just to poke around -- a little retail therapy after a busy and stressful week. And though I did more browsing than buying, it still boosted my mood! Maybe sharing a few of my finds will boost yours too.
How pretty is this vase? It made me think of the ocean.
I'm really into aqua and turquoise lately, I don't know why. But I loved these ceramic dishes (and the brown ribbon!).
I thought of our office redo as soon as I saw these fabric baskets. The turquoise lining with the damask on the outside totally fits into my vision! I might have to go back for these.
HomeGoods never disappoints with its selection of baskets, and I've got a serious thing for baskets. This one with the graphic gray-green liner made me smile.
So did these bamboo boxes. I'm totally going to try DIYing one with some stuff I have on hand.
I'm really starting to appreciate their lamp selection as well, and their prices can't be beat, even by my first love, Target. I thought this one, with its dark gray shade, would look fab in our new office.
And this one, with its chocolate shade and its light aqua-glass base, would look great on my new console table in the living room.
I'm loving the happy green ones too! Wouldn't they be great in our bedroom?
I thought this coral-colored kelp (?) print would complement the theme in our office, but in a different frame, maybe white.
Other great nautical finds for our office. I think I could DIY both of these! What do you think?
I loved the hue and the Moroccan feel of this ceramic piece.
And if this garden stool had been a little cheaper (and a little less shiny), I may have snatched it up. (So adorable -- a little boy in the aisle with his dad kept insisting it was a kid-sized table).
It took a lot of restraint to keep from buying this fun green-and-white pot. Love the parrot!
Oh, and while at HomeGoods, I also found the biggest potholes I've ever seen. They almost swallowed up the traffic cone pathetically attempting to warn people of the harm about to befall their tires. I didn't take a picture of the potholes because I was too busy climbing out of them.
So, what did I buy? A few baskets, including this lined one I plan to keep in the bathroom closet and use for laundry.
I also got some other accessories for our entryway project. Sadly, some of the things I purchased aren't going to work (I'm bad at using a tape measure, apparently!), so they'll have to go back. Still working on that entryway -- I hope to share the results very soon! I meant to wrap it up a lot sooner, but we've had some family stuff come up in the last couple of weeks that's taken precedence. Thanks for your patience!
