Getting HomeGoods Happy with My Mom
My mom made me do it.
You’re buying that line right?
We stopped at HomeGoods a few weeks ago when I had to give her up and take her to the airport. I got some fun new stuff for the house! Just the right kind of things to usher in Summertime.
I am so ready.
My bike is still taking up residence on the mantel. It makes me happy. I think this might be the longest I’ve ever left anything on my mantel? So… I’m sure I’ll change it next week. lol.
Anyhow, my big find was this fantastic Aqua lantern.
You know what a lantern nut I am… so this giant aqua beauty was a no-brainer!! I put it in the cart, and then we went around seeing what else we could fit in the cart along with it.
I was good and hit the pillow isle last, thinking maybe I would skip it this trip.
I am such a sucker for them. Every. Time.
While I didn’t find these in the pillow isle… they got me on the way to the check out line in a big beachy-fun display!
I think “Life Is Better At The Beach” & “Surf Sunshine Sand” pretty much scream Summer.
This room changes a lot for me because it’s so easy to flip around a few tables, swap out the pillows and put a new vignette on the coffee table. And bam. Feels like a fresh, new space.
Changing my coffee table is a fav thing to freshen.
A basket. My aqua Ball Jar stuffed lantern, some reading and a lei from one of our Hawaii trips as a book mark.
The Sea sign sits & has lil hangers on the back too. It would be super on a gallery wall.
Of which I do not have. Small house. Lots of windows… itty bitty wall space.
I wasn’t sure about the golden yellow really going with anything I had, but I liked it when I spied it. Heck, I never should have given it a second thought. It’s slide right in and been such a happy color to have around.
I forget if I bought the rug first, or the pillow? I’ll have to ask my mom. She was with me for both.
When you add a new color, do you start seeing it everywhere? Or is that just me. I already added something else in this pretty goldenrod shade. It tripped me in the store ðŸ˜‰
I’ve got it tucked away, it was camera shy for this shoot.
Do you hunt & gather new home decor… and find new things, and hang on to them so you can do little mini makeovers on your spaces? I like doing it that way. It’s easy and affordable. And I like that!
I love my home so much, it truly is my happy place where I can go to unwind after a stressful day and just sit and watch the world go by. Therefore, it’s no secret that during my time as a home blogger I’ve accumulated a lot of gorgeous interiors. For this reason, it’s so important to have the right home insurance so that all of my furnishings and possessions are protected in case of a disaster.
An old colleague of mine has recently moved to Australia and managed to get a new home insurance policy through youi home cover. You could take a look at the different types of insurance they offer if you live in that part of the world and your policies are due for renewal. Who knows, you might even be able to save some money to spend on new interiors!
We have been so busy here with projects and family obligations. I’m trying to get back on track… and I’ve got lots to share. There are some new things I want to tell you all about.
Sadly… I must get dinner on the table now. But soon!!
Take care, Shannon
