Go "Green"!

We have added some green to our home!

Meet our new plants:

This one is my personal favorite! I have been wanting to get an orchid for the longest time, but had not gotten around to it. I love the color! We picked this one up at Ikea for 13 bucks. Not bad, eh? My beloved orchid is in the kitchen overlooking the living room.

We already had this plant, but had to re-pot it because it was growing out of its old home. Funny story about this plant is that we got it for a co-worker that had surgery...she was "let go" shortly after and left this precious plant behind. I didn't waste any time and scooped it right up. Now, it's sitting pretty in our living room.

I love this plant, not only because it is very easy to take care of, but because it was my first plant ever. Now our guests have something pretty to look at before they go to sleep.

One of our new plants is a fern we picked up from Home Depot...trying to decide where to put it. For now it is in the Master Bedroom...(to be continued)

Lastly, another addition to our family is this succulant, which is curretly on my desk. I love looking at it in the morning while I check my email.

All in all, this project cost us about 75 dollars, and considering that cuts the cost of buying flowers at the store, I think we did good.

Deal of The Day: Viena (Chair) Waits for You...

Target recently had a Home Design Event, and let me tell you, everything was beautiful! Of course, Target never lets me down. Now that the Design Event has come to an end, Target has dropped their prices by 50%. Check out the sweet deal I found! It's a grey Viena Chair, which was originally $179! Now you can get one for only 90 bucks...

Deal of The Day!

Today's deal of the day comes in form of storage...something we all need. Check out these cute green lacquer boxes. They come in a set of three (small, medium, and large). These little boxes would be great way to store scrapbooking materials or recipe cards. Now you can pick 'em up for $10...that's at least $25 less than regular price!

I received my new white desk a couple of days ago and I must say, I love it! This is supposed to go in the loft area...however, being the indesisive person that I am, I decided to go with another choice. Not a big surprise for those who know me.

Here are some pictures of the Parsons "imitation" find:
If you'd like to order it, please click here. I promise you, this is the best $170 you will spend on a desk. This baby is solid!

Since then, I decided to go with the Hudson Console Table instead of the desk to put up in this space. Not because I don't love this desk, but because it actually clashed with a vintage chair I recently bought from Craigslist (will post pics soon). See picture below for the console table that stole my heart! I highly recommend this table, it's definetely worth it's full price of $129, but this week it's on sale for only $99! Start your engines and go pick up this great piece at your local Target store... Vroom! Vroom!

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall...

I'm back with another great find! I have been looking for an oversized leaning mirror for our bedroom, which is a work is progress...basically, our bedroom is a cream colored box with a fabulous bed! To say the least, the bedroom is so huge, we need a statement piece to fill up the space between two windows. So, I have been looking for this particular mirror for quite some time and I have found one that I am trying to decide on. This is a great price for an oversized leaning mirror!
Here is my choice...

Ikea has this beautiful full length mirror for 99 buckaroos, which by the way, can be hung horizontally if you don't want to lean it against the wall. I have seen it displayed at the Ikea store and it is as beautiful as the other $500 mirrors I have seen elsewhere...

Could it be true?

So, I was recently searching for the best deal on a Parsons Desk for our upstairs study. Well, I looked and I looked and couldn't find one under $299. Which is what I was willing to pay, but as a true bargain shopper, there had to be something more! And there was, I found an imitation Parsons desk for $169!!!! That is a whole $130 less...

Here is the real Parsons desk from West Elm:

Ok, brace is the imitation (Student White Desk - :I found this awesome deal at and with $1 shipping, you just can't beat that!
