Home Goods For Your Cottage Decor

Hi all....of course I have been visiting my Home Goods often... and have found some great bargains!!!!! My first was this great vintage looking rocking horse. It was broken.... and I persuaded the Manager to consider it Christmas merchandise .... so 70% off!!!!! I attacked it with my hot glue gun ( a girls's best friend ) and fixed the broken spot. I only ended up paying $20... and it is a pretty good size! Next to ease my White addiction I purchased a lovely platter.... this ended up on my winter white mantel. I also scored a great wire basket with a burlap liner... I will fill this with White birch logs. The plate was $6....basket $24..... jeeze I LOVE a bargain!!!!! I shop often... but I do not spend a lot.... and I love coming home with a little treasure! Next the fun is to find that perfect spot...... let the games begin!!!! LOL LOL


LOVE my horsey....


Always room for one more basket!!!!!!

Never have to many pretty white plates!!!!!


Oops...forgot about this sweet little wood box.....I put some flowers in!!!! $6

Put it all together for a simple cottage farmhouse look!!!!

My Dream Kitchen....The Beginning!!!!!!

Hi all... I know I have been a slacker!!!! Have not posted in a couple weeks...been very busy with post Christmas stuff. With my Christmas money from my parents, I have decided to re- do my kitchen!!!! Now I can do this frugally because my hubby is a carpenter....we need paint... tile...and new counters. Now I know this is nuts... My kitchen is two years old!!!! However... I chose dark cabinets again and I am tired of the dark...we are going with a cream color. I want to do subway tile on the backsplash....and dark wood counters. I am going for romantic farmhouse...we shall see!!! Lol This project will take a while....hubby will work on it on weekends. I plan to blog it each step of the way!!!

Love the subway tile and dark wood counters!!!!!


Love these White cabinets... and White wash floor!!!! Oh I am dreamin......

The dark is done!!!! lol



This is the color I chose....

Well....let the re -vamp begin!!!!!!!!!!!
