My new favorite HGTV show is Sarah's House.  She is a fabulous designer (similar to Candice Olson, my other favorite designer) who bought a house and is totally gutting it and redoing it.  Each episode is a new room or two.  I love it.  Check it out, it's on Sat nights, but I usually DVR it just in case.  (oh!  I just noticed full episodes on the site also).

Optic Sea Glass Table Lamp

I bit the bullet and ordered this beautiful lamp in blue from Crate and Barrel.  I wanted it last year for my birthday, but it sold out.  Thank you ATT UVerse for my gift card for signing up with you, you have bought me this lamp.  And also thank you for the wonderful customer service and the 4-show-record-DVR is great too (TimeWarner should take notes).

Shopping finds...

I love tulips.  Trader Joe's has an excellent price on tulips ($4.99) and so I've been treating myself weekly.  This week I got yellow and white since it was Valentines Day:

I bought this white shell thing at Flower Factory in Solon for only $9.99.  I also got the green candle on clearance at JoAnn Fabrics ($4), and the coffee mugs at Flower Factory ($1.39 each).  The third one, without a match, I brought to school.

And finally, I got these sweet little birdie things at JoAnn Fabrics for about $1.75 each:

I have been obsessed with cute little birds in home decor for a few years now.  Finally getting around to getting curtains for the office, and I picked out this fabric on etsy:

Luckily my Mom is good at sewing, because none of the pre-made curtains have appealed to me, nor did the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics.  I also ordered these two coordinating fabrics for pillows or whatever in the office:

I can't wait for these to arrive.  Here are some other birdie prints that I would like to have somewhere in my home, not necessarily the office:

This one I got in the mail yesterday and it's gorgeous.  It is also from etsy:  PaintingPrints

Also from PaintingPrints

Also from etsy seller:  StephanieFizer (I love all her items!)

Re-Decorating - Living Room Edition

Every spring (or wishing for spring that is) I feel the need to add little touches around the house to spruce things up a bit.  This week I have been having a hard time deciding on new throw pillow covers.  These are the ones in contending:

(These can all be found on by the seller: MARIESCOSYCUSHIONS).

I think I like the top two the best, to mix with some navy pillows, but I am not totally decided yet.  I've been watching some house shows on HGTV and it amazes me how fast decisions are made, when it is taking me forever to pick out a pillow!  Although I guess this isn't always the case with me.  I picked out my wedding dress on the third try on!

I will post before and after pictures when it is done.  This seller is in the UK though, so it may take awhile.

What decorating do you hope to do this spring?
