~I went shopping~

I went shopping and I came home with some pretty fabulous finds!
I picked up 2 of these Ikat pillows that are huge, and I think I am going back for a 3rd.
I have a hard time buying something I can make myself, but these were too good of a deal to pass by!
Then I picked up some fresh flowers.
I am really needing Spring right about now.
Snow is in the forecast~again.
They smell fabulous too!
I have been looking for a while now for new lamps for my new Pottery Barn shades.
I found these at Marshall's.
They were a little pricey, even for Marshall's, but I couldn't help but fall in love with them.
They are the perfect shade of chippy blue.


I still would like to find something to go in between the lamps on the sofa table.
Good thing there is a great flea market coming up this weekend!

I took a lot of pictures~sorry.....








Hope you are all having a fantastic day!
xoxo

I like your new pillows and of course those beautiful shades and lamps. I am so into going simple lately in my home, which is so not like me....but, I'm starting anyway and it feels great. I really like just the flowers between your lamps on the table with all the pictures above it, I'm not sure where my eye would want to look first. But I'm sure whatever you do will be beautiful!

I love the way this looks. Even though I live in Fla. I need a little spring fix right now too. I have been looking at the P. Barn shades for awhile. Love anything with script writing on it. Finaaly saw the Target lamps you got for the bedroon at our Target. Our store must be behind. As usual your blog has brightened my day.

The flowers just pop and make me want Spring to already be here.I have had hit a milestone on my blog and I am having a Thank You Giveaway of all natural organic products and I would love for you to enter since I have gotten so much inspiration from your blog!!

Your room looks gorgeous and I love your gallery wall ( and your new chippy lamps!)

The lamps and pillows are PERFECT!!!! I see something long and low in the middle like a beautiful tray...could be empty or hold a vase of flowers, a group of books or green apples. Have you got a silver tray with feet? Try that with the flower vase on it.

oldrfriend said...

I have one of the Pottery Barn shades. I paired mine with a black wire lamp from the fifties. Love anything with script on it. In French even better!!

Love the lamps Melaine, and sometimes I've found it is cheaper to buy pillows than make them. I love Ikat.

The lamps are awesome! Can you share a more up close picture of their chippy blue patina?? FUN!
I hope you have a cozy weekend. It's quite windy and chilly! Maybe the snow will hold off. I've had flowers in my house all week too~ loving the pink cheeriness!

You do have an eye for the beautiful things, Melaine! The pillows and shades have made the room even more illumined. And the flowers added more accents. How frequent do you go shopping and come home with some great finds?
