Last week, I got the chance to do some window shopping at some of my favorite stores, so I thought I’d let you in on a few of my favorite finds! I didn’t end up getting anything, but it’s always fun to browse and get ideas! First stop, HomeGoods. Is there anybody that doesn’t love that place? Oh, wait, I know…my husband
I was first greeted by this pretty console table. This one in particular caught my eye because it was super long and narrow, and I’ve been looking for something like that for our bedroom. Alas, I left without it.
This lamp shade caught my eye, mainly because it would work beautifully on our living room. I loved the fun pattern, and I think it was $25, which isn’t too bad.
I love the inky blue color of this lamp base..the fish aren’t necessarily my thing, but I could see it working in the right room!
This one I regret not getting. I love the blue-green glass, and it was huge. It’s hard to tell in this photo, but this thing was a good 3 feet tall. AND it was only $20…wahhhh, I’m having non-buyer’s remorse
This driftwood fish would be so pretty on a beachy mantel. The texture is awesome. $20, I think.
If I had a little girl, I would’ve snapped this up in a second. In fact, I may go back and do it anyway (and by doing so, I will probably jinx myself into having all boys). This basket stood about 2.5 feet tall and I could just picture it sitting in the corner of a fun bedroom or playroom to corral clothes or toys. Sigh. And, if I remember correctly, it was pretty reasonably priced..I’m thinking somewhere around $30.
The pattern on this lantern was so pretty, and it was painted blue on the inside which would probably be so pretty with a candle glowing out of it. I also thought it would be pretty turned into a light fixture, which coincidentally enough, Mandi just posted a tutorial showing how to do this!
I thought the shape of this piece was really unique and it could be fun as a terrarium or a lantern with some pretty candles inside. It was $25.
One thing you can always count on HomeGoods for: ceramic animals of all varieties. This ram head was very masculine looking, but I wasn’t loving the crackle finish. I would probably spray him with a charcoal gray or navy.
This bone tray was LARGE (probably 2.5′ x 1.5′) and super heavy. It was in the clearance section, but was still $70 (originally $130) so a little out of my price range. I do love it , though and we could’ve been best friends.
I thought these baskets were really cool, it’s actually a grouping of three that are all attached and would look awesome hanging on a wall!
I loved the damask-like pattern on this rug, and the colors were very nice!
I also love the greek key pattern on this rug, and it was a really soft lavender color. Could be really pretty in a light, airy little girls room!
It’s hard to tell in this photo, but this mirror had some really awesome texture to it, almost like jute. I’ve been on the hunt for a nice full length mirror for a our bedroom, but this one was out of my price range if I remember correctly.
So those are the things that caught my eye! Anyone else done any window shopping lately? Or experience non-buyers remorse like me??
