Gold & White

I may or may have not went shopping after work and my hubby may or may not be mad when he checks our bank account today {which by the way he has an iphone app for & checks like its second nature to him}

I guess I'm willing to face the consequences cuz today I walked off with a shopping cart full of gorgeous goodies from HomeGoods ...

 Seriously that store is messing with my budget ... yeah I know it's supposed to be great design accessories for bargain prices, but that's exactly the issue that I have with this place... everything looks great and everything is a super good bargain!

...Like these white quatrefoil vases ... they're neutral in color while screaming of gorgeousness in design ... how can you take just one, why not two?  and at $30 a piece how can I wait until next week or until I know for sure I will use them ... somebody will snatch them up within a day if I don't buy them.

...or these Gold garden stools ... I was planning to wait on accessories until I bought all of my larger scale items first ... but how can I resist and at such great prices?

And of course what else is a girl to do when she comes home with tons of fabulous accessories ....

These books by the way I bought at an estate sale for 50 cents each ... I was completely intrigued by the beautiful hard covers.

After having so much luck the 1st time, I am tempted to start a colorful vintage book collection ... just imagine the possibilities!

I'm happy that my lonely Lucite table finally found some friends ... although the look is not complete and still lacking some art work ... I'm thinking it looks pretty good so far ... by the way the orange tulips were an accident, but I'm starting to really like it there now ... maybe I just need a little inspiration for my orange console table...

Either way I'm in no hurry to finish my foyer, so this will have to do for now!


  1. Your lucite table is such an interesting piece! Everything is looking great. I like that you mixed in old books with home goods stuff. Adds a bit of soul to the place :)

  2. I am all too familiar with the shopping and then being worried when the hubs checks the bank account...eek!!! But your finds were AWESOME! Your hubs should be happy, you made his place look amazing!

  3. I'm completely in love with those golden beauties...and I have been crazy over the white and gold combo lately and this is LOVELY!!

    Btw, your comments about million dollar decorators totally cracked me up (c: I think I may have been so harsh on the show because I made the hubbs watch it with me and he was acting like he was having his fingernails slowly removed...that is exactly why I don't take him to the twilight movies! (c:

  4. I adore that gold+white combo--what GORGEOUS finds! So happy to have found your blog...I'm sure you'll have lots of fun finds like this! Have a great night :) xoxo {av}
