Bargain Time

     I’m not going to lie.  I have been finding it very difficult to get in touch with my blogging mojo lately.  I haven’t really been in a craft mood (I’m embarrassed to tell you how long it’s been since I’ve gotten out my sewing machine.), and I just can’t think of cutesy clever ways to tell you about how this weird transitional time has just not been the most fun I’ve ever had.
     What I am eager to tell you about is my fave new shopping experience.  I’m a sucker for a bargain.  We have a new store in town called Dirt Cheap (it sounds tacky…kind of is…but hang with me for a minute).  The whole premise is that they buy overstocks, insurance claims, salvage etc. from other stores and resell it.  Ours has got a ton of stuff from Target, and I am excited about it.  Today I got a 5x8 rug for $16.43!  I am so excited to put it in my new living room!


     My living room vision is really coming together.  Because the couch is so light, I want to get tons (or a reasonable few) throw pillows to brighten it up.  I’m also thinking that I want to do lots of different shades of neutrals in different textures.  We have hardwood floors that are pretty dark (here), and the couch is pretty light (here), so I’m thinking this rug will bring them together nicely.  Also, I’ve fancied up some lamps with a can of oil rubbed bronze spray paint and new shades from (where else?) Target via Dirt Cheap.  I’ll take a picture tomorrow.

     I also got two dresses from the short-lived The Webster at Target collection (for way less than Target tried to sell them…)


(Actually a shorter version of this…that is not nearly so low cut with a sort of ruffle-type thing at the neckline.  Obviously I couldn’t find a picture of it.)

          Places like this always suck me in.  I could spend way too much time and money on “bargains” which are such a good deal…and totally unnecessary.  In unrelated news, I got new lavender nail polish so I’m taking a (short) break from my signature red toes to try it out…loving it so far.
