It seems like every time I go to TJ Maxx, I am always let down by either their items or prices.
I have not given up yet and went back just a few days ago. I feel pretty lucky with what I found.
I went there in search of some statement decor pieces.
I guess I should let the cat out of the bag on my blog and say that we put an offer on a house earlier this week! It's a short sale which means pretty much opposite of short! Short sale is meaning the bank is forgiving the seller of their mortgage so we could hear back at latest in August.
Therefore, I am on the lookout for some cute pieces to design my new house. Where ever that house may be!
This adorable Elephant just shouted "take me home!" And I graciously obliged!
I mean for $9.99 wouldn't you! I think it would look adorable in one of the kids' rooms.
Plus add a little spray paint to it and you have an adorable modern elephant.
I haven't decided what color I want to paint him.
Then I found this awesome bowl. It first caught my eye randomly placed in the cooking section and I just loved it until I turned it upside down and saw for how much. $29.99. I wasn't crazy for a $30 bowl, so I just kept looking. And of course kept thinking about this bowl. I knew I had to get it, even though it was a bit pricey, I am sure I will put it to good use with something bright and colorful put inside sitting on a coffee table or ottoman.
I am totally wanting to have Daniel make a custom ottoman from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs blog.
These ottomans range up to the $1000's so I thought it would be fun to make a really stylish, yet functional piece of furniture for a fraction of the price!
