Thinking Wall Decor {for the Guest Room}

Trucking right along!  I'm drilling down on bedding for the guest room, using some basics I already have and filling in the gaps as economically as possible.  Fun!  Especially since it involved a trip to HomeGoods, armed with a 2 gift cards I've been hoarding for a while. I picked up a few things for the beds, but also found these... My wheels have been turning about the wall decor for this room and I'm planning on using a few things … [Read more...]

January’s Favorite Things

I can't believe we're already at the end of January!  I survived all those parent conferences, but did not accomplish everything I'd hoped to do on the home front.  Oh well -- there's always February, right? ;-) So here are my favorite things for January... I think it's a pretty good list. :) 1.  Atlanta Bloggers get-togethers. I was sooooo lucky this month!  Our Atlanta bloggers met up for lunch and a business meeting in Woodstock, GA … [Read more...]

Shoppin’ on Saturday {HomeGoods}

It was not on my busy agenda on Saturday, but who can drive by a HomeGoods store and NOT stop in?  Quick check of my watch told me I could do a pass through... so I did.  I love that their stock is never the same.  Brilliant when you think about it, because seasoned HomeGoods shoppers know if you love it- buy it- it won't be there next time you're in.I spied lots of great goodies... didn't buy anything this time around, but it … [Read more...]

The Mom Cave

An idea whose time has come-- the Mom Cave!  Don't we all crave our own little space?  Our little corner of our home that we can decorate in girly ways, that will serve as our sanctuary when the kids and husband have taken over every other square inch of the house?   Do you already have a room that could serve as your Mom Cave?  HomeGoods (one of my favorite budget-friendly decor stores) has cleverly floated this … [Read more...]
