Anyone remember these posts?  I have been coveting this duvet from Serena & Lily for some time and just saw a great knock-off for more than $120 less….

LOVE THIS?

P.S. Have you seen all the awesomeness at Land of Nod lately?  I love that most of it is easily translatable to adult living but at kid prices….

Happy Bargain Hunting for Spring!

Random Stuff That I am Liking Lately

Winter blahs?  Guilty as charged.  I have been lacking motivation and inspiration lately.  {Gasp!}   I am determined to get my groove back.  In the meantime, here are some random things that I am currently coveting:

I love these organic, colorful pillar holders and would love to chase away the cold weather blues by setting a few on my mantle.

{Colorful Beaded Pillar Stands, At West End}

Ahhh, Serena & Lily.  I want to jump right into this Santorini-inspired bedding and hibernate until May. 

{Catalina Duvet, Serena & Lily}

I am reading THE BEST book right now, which hasn’t really helped my motivation to get out of bed….

{The Help, by Kathryn Stockett}

How glam is this quatrefoil cocktail set?  It’s on MAJOR markdown right now.  I may go snag it — a strong cocktail at the end of a cold day may just be what the doctor ordered.

{Bronze Quatrefoil Barware, Sur La Table}

This soup is my lunch of choice these days.  On days when I am feeling particularly feisty, I add a dollop of salsa verde and sour cream.  De-Lish.

{Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup, Pacific Natural Foods}

Retail therapy may be the only true antidote for my winter doldrums.  First on my list is the handbag that embodies Spring.  You will be mine.

{Fresh Leaves Shopper, Anthropologie}

 

Random Things That I am Loving Lately

Isn’t this bag from Sundance Catalog divine?

I am loving this lamp from Shades of Light.  It may just turn up in baby spark!’s “big girl room.”  

Speaking of the “big girl room,” I think this tu-tu-esque bedskirt from Pottery Barn Kids is so gorgeously whimsical.

This boyfriend watch from Fossil is on my list for Santa.

This delicious soup is my new go-to meal for a quick, yummy dinner.

I am coveting this sheet set from West Elm.   

Kinda along the same lines, doesn’t this coat from Patagonia look warm, cozy and comfy?

This is my new fave bargain shower gel (~$2) — found in most grocery stores and drug stores. 

I think this post reflects my current state of mind —
completely scatterbrained!  🙂

Bravo Brocade Home

So, I have been on the prowl for attractive and functional shelving for my home office.  Look at the swoon-worthy ledge shelves ($69) that I found at Brocade Home:

brocADESHELf

As I looked around, I fell in love with just about everything B.H. had to offer.  And at relatively affordable prices too!  Like this UH-MAZE-ING black high gloss floor mirror ($699):

brocademirror

And check out this fun metal side table ($299):

brocadesidetable

I wish that I had a place to put this gorgeous entertainment storage console ($599) — eye candy!

brocadestorage

I would love to give this ceramic plate set as a hostess gift or engagement present — on sale from $49 to $19!

brocadeplates

This lovely headboard ($599 for queen) would look great in a girl’s bedroom, well okay, almost any  bedroom.

brocadeheadboard

And, of course, you know me and white bedding, I HEART this amazing textured duvet cover ($249) (pictured above too).  It just went on my “wish list”!

brocadequilt

I love these artistic chairs ($199) and one would look fabulous by itself as an accent in a bedroom, or as a set around a kitchen or casual dining room table.

brocadechair

This innovative and unique ruffle shelf ($499) is adorable.  Wouldn’t it look great in a powder room with pretty jars, soaps and toiletries?

brocaderuffle

Are you with me?  Have you fainted?  Is your jaw on the floor?  Do you die?

Which is your fave?
