What's been up...

Guten tag my lovelies. No. I do not speak German. I fooled you. So things have been hectic around here lately. To say the least. More on that later. I will tell you, I have purchased some fabulous new things for some fabulous new spaces that I just must share with you all. You know I love a good show and tell. 

My new eSale rug. Isn't she a beaut? I mean seriously. If I were you all, I would be jealous. She arrived late last week and I have been so enamored and smitten with her, that I am too distracted to even think about where she will reside. Sigh. 
The loveliest painting that I scored on major sale at Home Goods. They had many others just like this and of a different variety at the store. So if you love, I would suggest getting in your car and high tailing it to your nearest Home Goods. I am talking blowing through traffic signs, speeding and being up on two wheels while rounding a corner. It is worth it. Here is my thought on this. I am going to do a kelly green trellis wallpaper in my guest bathroom and there she will live. Perfect juxtaposition of super traditional/feminine and modern glam. 
Another Home Goods score for me. Seriously. They are on fire. You will NEVER guess what I paid for this lamp. Just guess. Wrong. I am not even sure what you guessed but I am certain it was wrong. $39.99. I know. Your socks are blown off. I have seen similar pieces that retailed for $199+. Nothing excites me more than a deal. Well, maybe a Real Housewives marathon. 
Ok. This is actually my favorite find that I have encountered. So you all know that I am obsessed with my dogs. To put it mildly. I have always wanted to get paintings of my girls but it is just so damn expensive. Well my loves. I have the solution to all of our problems. This one is going to solve world hunger. Per chance. I found Lamanda Designs and she will paint your pet for $30.00. I am not even kidding. Praise baby Jesus. I mean I am getting e'erbody's pet that I know painted for them. I cannot even tell you how spot on these paintings are. Not only does she capture their look, she captures their personality. It is all in the eyes.

I am sure you all have been wondering what has been happening in the way of fashion for me lately. Well. I am here to tell you, big things. Big things have been happening. Some may shy away from the gold and silver combination but not this girl. I rock it all day long. I recently found The Way We Are and they graciously sent over their Clear Pave Chain Bracelet which has quickly become a part of my everyday stack that I sport. It is the last one to the left in this stack. As they say, save the best for last. 
Have you all found any goods lately? You know I hate when you don't share with me. Love you. Mean it. XOXO

  3. Love everything on this psot. Dying over your new rug. Be glad I don't live in Richmond or I would be stealing that from your house. Homegoods has been on fire lately great stuff! I have been racking up there too. Adore the bracelet and you:)

  5. Rug is awesome. LOVE that bracelet. I have found so many goods lately. Sadly for me, the hubs has put the pocket book on lock down. Sadly for others, most of my would-be scores are at local vintage, thrift, and antique haunts in OH. But I have been finding MAJOR goods. Note to all: January is the best time for vintage/thrift finds. Scored the most major guilded pagoda mirror for a song. You wouldn't believe me if I told you the price!

  6. Ok, which Homegoods (I'm in Richmond too)? Was at the one on Midlothian Tpke the other day...but just did a breeze through en route to Old Navy in search of winter gear for the kiddos. If my kids will ever go back to school (what's up with this snow here by the way?) I'm headed in that direction. Also, love the rug!

  7. I am a huge Home Goods fan. I haven't been since Christmas and am itching to get there today. I am going to look into Lamanda Designs and getting portraits of all of the pets we have ever had and do a wall. Yours look great! Thanks for sharing.

  19. I have a friend who loves her tiny yorkies more than her own children. (They're grown, so that's an okay thing, right?!) She would LOVE portraits of her babies, so thank you for the idea! It will be the best. present. ever.

  21. Home Goods nailed it out of the park with that painting. I need it. And that rug is fab! I've been browsing that site trying to find a rug I can't live without! And Riley and Zoey totally need a painting of themselves. For sure.
