Catalog Finds: Anthropologie

Hey there... I hope your week is off to a great start!  We got our first blast of fall weather over the weekend and it got me so revved up to embrace the season at last!  A couple of weeks ago the new Anthropologie Home catalog turned up in my mailbox and I spent a good hour going through it... their photographs are so richly staged with their home products I kept finding new and intriguing pieces every time I went back through.  And it also … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It (June)

This summer is absolutely flying by!  I turned the calendar over to July this morning and it looks to be another busy month of family, a little travel, and hopefully some good projects around the house.  I also looked back over my posts in June and though it was lighter posting schedule there were some goodies in there! I shared some of my favorite catalog finds for outdoors... Still love this stepping stone from Home Decorators … [Read more...]

Catalog Finds {the Outdoor Edition}

I don't know about y'all, but sprucing up my back deck has me perusing all those catalogs for more outdoor space inspiration... after all, the front porch could use a refresh, too!  So I thought I'd share some of the things that have caught my eye over the last week or so... links are underneath each photo.   I have to start with Grandin Road and this little sea horse table... Sea horse side table And this rug, if you're … [Read more...]

Catalog Finds: Grandin Road

I love it when early spring decor catalogs start arriving in my mailbox.  Yes, I am an online shopper, but sometimes perusing the old-fashioned paper catalog can't be beat.  Like when you're sitting on a beach somewhere... just sayin'. ;-)   It's been a while since I'd thumbed through a Grandin Road catalog, but I found some really cool things this time around so I thought I'd share. Enjoy!   Source: … [Read more...]

Friday Happy: Catalog Finds {Ballard Designs} & a Little Giveaway

Confession:  I'm ready to decorate for Christmas. Maybe it's because I've got some Christmas things I've been working on for the booth.  Or maybe it's the cold mornings and fires in the fireplace.  Or the fact that gingerbread lattes have finally arrived at Starbucks??! Either way, I know my family will revolt if I break out the Christmas tree and decorate the mantel right now, so I'm holding off. So today, we'll go surfing through the … [Read more...]

Catalog Finds {Willow House}

Somewhere in my summer hoopla, the new Willow House catalog came out and went live on my website! I finally got my hands on them and decided it would be a perfect Catalog Finds post!   While there are some really gorgeous new pieces in the Fall catalog, I was also pleased to see the return of some customer favorites. I don't know how long those will be around, so if you see one you want, you might want to snap it up! Let's get … [Read more...]

Catalog Finds {Pottery Barn} & Linky Followers

Woo hoo, the weekend is just about here!  Don't know about you, but it's been a looooonnnnng week and I'm looking forward to working on a couple of projects, spending time with the fam, and curling up in front of the fire. In fact, here is a little eye candy for you from the latest Pottery Barn catalog.  I was intrigued by their "Decorate for under $50" schtick, so thought I'd check it out.  Here's how I did... Love these Beaded Egg … [Read more...]

Catalog Finds {Ballard Designs}

It's back!  Our first Catalog Finds of 2012!  I love it when the catalogs start arriving again.  Sales and fresh ideas for winter/spring galore.  I try to allow a teeny bit in the January budget in case I can score a really great deal (or two) to get my decor mojo on. :)  One of my favorite catalogs for inspiration is Ballard Designs (but you already knew that), so feast your eyes on these... Nothing says Winter/Spring like Orchid in a … [Read more...]

A Great Reason To Thrift…{Catalog Finds}

Howdy, friends! I'm thoroughly enjoying time with family and friends in West Texas.  My camera is working overtime, so I'll hopefully have some wonderful pics to share when I get back... nothing like wide open spaces and friendly faces with a little Texas twang thrown in!During my travels I've been catching up on catalog perusing and magazine reading {the beauty of having teens that can help with the driving!}.  In the last Pottery … [Read more...]

Nautical Touches I’m Loving {Catalog Finds}

Warmer weather has me thinking "beach"!  I grew up in land-locked West Texas, but once I experienced the sand between my toes on the beach, I was hooked.  I'm now a bona fide beach lover and we trek to the white sands of the Gulf Coast a few times a year to get our fix. :)Though my personal decor style isn't your typical nautical or beach cottage style, I love to introduce touches into my late spring and summer decorating that reflect … [Read more...]
