Bedroom Refresh

Hi all... cleaning day today so I figured a little bedroom refresh was in order. I just moved my PB curtains to the side,moved my fav chair, and put down a new striped rug. My next hunt is for wall sconces for the side of my bed. I need plug in ones so the styles are limited... Oh how I love a new hunt..... Lol

Bittersweet Autumn Wreath...

I am so fussy about the wreath that will adorn my front door!!! To me it sets the tone for what is to come when you enter someone's home. I change mine according to the season.. and I like them to be BIG!!!' LOL Unlike many talented bloggers... I am not really a DIY girl. I would love to make lots of things , but I am always short on time!!!! So I hunt on Etsy etc for that one of a kind .... must have item !!!! But I am also on a budget.... so.....I must always hunt for a bargain..... This wreath was a winner!!!! I got this one at TJ Maxx for only 25 bucks!!!! It has my beloved Bittersweet and great corn husks too!!!!By the time I purchased the stuff and made it, I think it was worth it to buy!!!!! Now I am on the hunt for my Christmas wreath......

 

Added my own burlap ribbon....

This Bittersweet looks so real....

 

The corn husk is so Fallish... is that a word ? LOL

I love that it is so big!!!!!

Ikea Sectional Reveal !!!!!

Hi all ... After much debate I purchased my Ektorp sectional from Ikea!!!! I must say it is great!!!!! I ended up getting the Beige heavier fabric cover and it is very durable so far... And my puppy is all over it!!!! LOL It was easy to put together.... and so far no complaints. Considering it is SO much cheaper than the PB one... I think I made a wise and economical choice! The cushions are on the firm side...but my family still thinks it is very comfortable. I am glad I got the Ikea sectional... with the Pottery Barn look!!!! Speaking of PB... I am going to the Outlet in Lancaster on Sunday!!!!! So excited... so is the Hubby!!!!! LOL LOL I will post about my new acquisitions !!!!

To Ektorp Or Not To Ektorp....That Is The Question....

Hi all.. The weather is getting cooler at the Jersey Shore... and though I will miss Summer.. I am an Autumn Girl ,,,,,!!' I am back to school...and still working on some major projects in my home! We are still working on the kitchen...searching for just the right butcher block counter. Need something beautiful and cheap!!! Lol I also have been pondering a sectional sofa. My couch is only three years old, it was a housewarming gift from my hubby. It is still in great shape....but alas I have contracted the slip covered sectional bug!!! Damn that Pottery Barn!!!!! Lol So it began....the search.... Although my taste is PB... my pocketbook is not!!!! So.... you guessed it.... IKEA!!!! I read every review on the net about the Ektorp vs PB. Then I realized something I always knew.... you get what you pay for!!!! Yes the PB one is better made... deeper... and perhaps more comfortable....but DOUBLE the price!!!!! So I dragged the Hubby to IKEA.... sat on the Ektorp.... and to my surprise it was pretty nice!!!! Now Bleiking White or Savnby Beige? lol The next debate. The white is washable... the beige dry clean. I love the white... but not the washing and putting back on which I have learned is quite a job!! So I went with the beige... more expensive... total cost with delivery 1100 $ .I do not have it yet, oh and it comes in four boxes.. Lol... needs to be put together. The hubby is over the moon about that!!!! LOL I will post a pick when we are putting them together... till then some pics of my last batch of my Hydrangias!!!!!

 

 

Got this cute canister at Home Goods!!!!

 

Little bunches of fresh flowers... $6 .... Wal Mart!!!!
