~things are so much better when they are on sale~

This is a story about how I got in my car yesterday morning and headed to the Restoration Hardware outlet store on a whim.
I really needed to stay home and clean, but shopping sounded like more fun.
I didn't really have anything in mind to buy, but this is all the stuff that ended up in my car.
A pair of Lorraine sconces.....
 5 tarp pillows.....
~ close up image~
they are the ones in the back.
 The top framed flashcard print, I purchased mainly for the frame.....
 and a petal pink linen ruffle edge duvet cover.
 I love the edges, they are intentionally left raw and are frayed. 
I'm probably going to bring the duvet into the shop as my daughter told me she doesn't want pink anymore. 
{can you hear me crying?}
It was like going to Target.
You walk in to buy toilet paper and you walk out with toys, clothes, food, and picture frames. 
And if you have kids like mine, at least 4 things from the dollar spot, a hot dog, a Slurpee, Pokemon cards and nail polish.
The end.

{p.s. of the earth jewelry giveaway is still going on}

{p.s.s. I almost forgot, I got this too!}

You are too funny! I do stuff like this all the time. Who wants to clean and do laundry anyways? Like your impulsiveness!

Found your blog from Kelley :)

I so envy that you have an RH outlet near you. Of course if there was one near us, I don't know that my hubs would let me in to shop, as I'd come out having bought the whole store! Terrific finds! Thanks for sharing.

Lovely finds, really!

And yes, I am just the same. I go to the store with the intention of buying a frame, a vase or something else and end up with furniture, bowls, cloth or just about anything.

Room to Inspire said...

Okay, sounds like you totally scored! Clearly I need to take my hiney up there soon!

Living by a RH outlet would be DANGEROUS! I live by a Pottery Barn outlet but unfortunately it is closing! Closing? How can that be? So sad. You really scored. Can't wait to see where you put your treasures.

Oh man I am jealous....I wish I had a RH outlet store near me! I have been coveting those Lorraine sconces for awhile! They are out of my price range though :( Were they on sale?? Im freakin out over here! Haha.

Love everything you got!! Frayed ruffles.... Nuff said :)

Thanks for the inspiration!

Thank you for sharing.

Tina said...

I'm a bit jealous...I don't think we have a Restoration Hardware outlet here...WHY??

Good for you, though! Great finds! I covet pretty much everything you bought!!

Kristi said...

Now I want to drive to our Restoration Hardware Outlet. Gosh. I really want to now. And that pink duvet would make my little girl whoop and holler.

And it makes me so happy that someone else has the same little Target "problem."
