welcome home

meet harley.  this is my mom & pop's new baby.  he is just the cutest, most darling little baby fluff ball in the whole world.  he likes to run, do flips, make friends, bite long hair & follow people.
i really want him to come stay with us.
harley has a friend.  this is windel aka winnie the pooh-dle.  he is very sweet too.  this is my sister & brother-in-law's new pup.  they love to chase each other. 
{i learned that it is very hard to take pictures of active puppies.  i they were so cute playing together i wanted to capture it so badly, but by the time my camera would take...the moment would be gone.}
while my parents & sister are welcoming new furry additions to their homes i am adding a few pieces to our house as well.

weeks months ago i saw garden stools at big lots for $20.  i stood and stared at them for about 10 good minutes & in my thrifty-ness i decided i didn't need the garden stool & passed it up.  from then on i was suffering terribly from "non-buyers remorse".  i thought about them all the time.  i would see something similar at other stores & want to snatch them up but unfortunately they were about 3 TIMES more than the big lots steal & i just couldn't bring myself to fork over the cash.  even target wanted me to pay $69 for one on sale.  LAME.

and then the fateful day came.  right before i left marshall's i found this.  $25.  my garden stool.  perfect.  i dropped everything else i had in my hands in order to take this baby home.

{sorry for the fuzzy picture above.  i hope someday it will be nestled in a room and look as pretty as these}

when i was in louisville visiting parents, puppies & having a sewing day my mom & pop decided to get rid of this little guy.  yes please.  i will find you a new home.  gray oval mirror. {please don't look at the trash surrounding my perfect gray oval mirror}.

here's my peddler's mall find.  i had the same "garden stool experience" with this little guy.  i saw it.  thought of all the things i wanted to do with it and then left it there.  as soon as we got back to work i knew i really wanted it.  so very next day...peddler's mall round 2.  $9.00 woot woot & it's a good size too!
.here's some inspiration pics for what i should do with him.

happy friday everyone!

hope all is well & that you have a fabulous weekend filled with fun & friends planned.  benny has to take the ACT tomorrow morning & the empending 72 hours of thunderstorms that are supposedly rolling in don't have me all excited but i know we'll enjoy our time home nonetheless.

if you're in town...holler friends!

  7. Those are great finds Jen! I love the gray oval mirror. You sound just like me with the "non-buyers remorse"...happens to me ALL the time! I'm usually not as lucky to refind what I was looking for though.

  8. Adorable puppies! My dad and step mom adopted a big puppy last year and he jumps all over people. Kind of scary for our little 4 year old!
    Love the gray mirror, great color too.
