Friday favorites

Hello and cheers to the weekend!

This week has been crazy busy for me.  Sometimes I feel like I am running in circles, and this weeks schedule has kept me on my toes.

2 more weeks of summer for us {because I gauge summer on when the kids go back to school}

Cody goes back beginning of September and Savannah goes back mid September! Both my babies will be juniors, how can that be! 

I have been working on a few projects around the house. One is our basement which I touched on a tiny bit, but will be showing you more shortly. I painted the floor white and it is looking so much happier! So fresh, clean, and light filled finally!

I have also been busy working on some posts for fall, yes fall! My most favorite time of the year.
I just love it when the leaves turn and the air is crisp. It is my favorite time of year to work in the yard and do projects outdoors. 

Ok, onto some favorites I found this week. I have been sourcing out items for my "dream bedroom" although everything I find seems to come with a high price tag. Ugh. I have learned over the years though that if you really love something, you should just go for it because it will be something you have for a long long time. 

I really love this floor lamp. I touched on doing floor lamps next to the bed instead of table lamps in one of my posts, and I think these would be stunning.

And then I found this beauty and I think I might have to get it for the foot of Savannah's bed! I just need to measure and make sure it is long enough. I have always wanted one of these and the price seems too good to be true! 

Look how crazy good this one looks over at The House Of Silver Lining.
I love Shauna's house so much, every inch.

I scored a huge {3'tall} vase at Goodwill a few days ago and I ordered these to put in them. I am hoping they come in time for some of my fall posts!

I also got 3 new coffee table books. This one, which really says a lot about me, this one, and this one. 

This cake stand would be a stunner for the holiday season. I think it would even be great on a shelf with a glass dome and a little Christmas scene inside. It's never too early to think about Christmas!

This picture is serving as so much inspiration for me. We have a spot in our basement just like this and I am trying to find just the right size dog kennels to fit there. Our dogs LOVE their kennels. They take naps in them and sleep in them at night. We never even shut the doors, they just like their little cozy spots.

These would make the perfect spots for them to rest, and would go great with our decor!

This rabbit hutch would also fit perfectly in there though!

Alright I am off to go start my day, I hope you have a great one and a fun weekend as well!

a new {to me} shopping source

I just was introduced to Sierra, and from what I understand it is like TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, and Marshalls all rolled into one. They have home decor, furniture, as well as clothing, gear, and pet products. 

Basically everything you could ever need or want! 

I searched the site and found some great items under the clearance section and put together some home decor products all under $25! 


As much as I change up our decor, even for different seasons, it is always good to find reasonably priced items to play with. 

I hope you enjoy this new to me source, maybe you've heard of it already?

You can also shop this page, as well as more fun finds on my Like To Know It page right here.

how to shop my favorites and our home easily

I read a lot of blogs, and I follow a lot of people on instagram. 

If I see a picture I love I often wonder where I too can get some of the items in the photo. It can be a nuisance asking over and over "where did you get that table, etc." 

Like To Know It is a simple way to shop your favorite Instagram accounts and more. 

If you don't already have the app on your phone, this is what it looks like in the app store:

On my page you will find items from our home, as well as clothing, makeup, and skincare I love. I will post things that I don't post anywhere else. 

You can go right to the top of this page and click on "shop my blog" to take you directly there.

Once there, you will see little pictures I have uploaded with easy links to the products in the photos. 

All you have to do is click on the thumbnail below the photo, and it will take you directly to the product.

Here are some other people I like to follow on the Like To Know It app, to name a few. 

Here is something fun that I just learned about the app too! 

You can do a product search by typing in a brand. Everything tagged with that brand will pop up.

Alternatively, you can search for a wide range of products. For example, you can type in the product search "white couch" or "mud cloth" or "vintage" 
Anything with that tag will pop up for you to shop.

I am fairly new to the Like To Know It app, and it would mean the world to me if you would give me a follow on there. 

Thank you for all your support and I hope you find shopping on this app as fun as I do! Hopefully you will find some fun things.

Friday favorites

Whew, what a week!

We had one kid come home from camp, one kid leave for camp, and a whole lot in-between. 

I haven't been online as much because of the business, but I did pick up a few things to get my fall decorating in gear. 

One of them was this bowl. I am planning on using it just like the picture shows, on our coffee table. I just love everything about this photo. 

I even stacked some books under my coffee table. When something is this good, why not try to recreate it? 

I was looking at different chain links like on the book stack and was contemplating this one. But I have always wanted these and I think they would look great anywhere, so I may just go for them.

I really also like that coffee table, {it's a really great price!} but I am happy with ours. 

I really want to get this hardwired in to the picture in my stair well. I think I mentioned that we are updating our stair railing to black steel, and I think this would compliment it nicely.

Found another cute little romper that is perfect for transitioning from summer to fall.

I also am contemplating this dresser for our master as new nightstands, and then getting some funky floor lamps instead of table lamps. Maybe just keeping it simple on top with a linear planter like this filled with succulents. Super clean and simple.

I found some super fun really inexpensive finds for you here, starting with this cement bowl. How cool is this? And for around $10, yes please!

Also, how about a pair of designer looking dining chairs on sale for around $39 each? 

If wood is more your style, how about a pair of farmhouse chairs for around $25 a piece? 

In need of an inexpensive floor lamp? Look no further. This one is under $20! Cheaper than the price of a shade!

Hope you have a great weekend!
