I seriously love almost everything Etsy designer sohomode does. Her choice of prints is wonderful. Her styles are figure flattering. I don’t know why I haven’t actually purchased any of these items yet, except that I’m a woefully terrible apparel shopper. However, I’m determined that the next fashion purchase that I make should be one of these items. Check out sohomode’s shop HERE.
Oh yeah baby! And for those of us who revel in it, I thought I’d post a few of the things out there that have caught my eye so far. (clockwise: Deery Lou Santa Ornament $8, Natural Snowflake Ornament $6, Hable Holiday Hooked Rug $130, Pincone Garland $24, Bottlebrush fox $14, Itty Bitty Ornament Set $18.
Meanwhile, let me clarify that I won’t actually be purchasing any of these items. I have several boxes of decorations in the basement just waiting for me to return. Some of them were purchased last year after season’s end. Anyways…I can’t wait!
More and more [and even more] I’m discovering that I love a good BARGAIN. And nothing feels better than a bargain that also includes something that’s been recycled. Not only am I saving money, but I’m saving the earth, right?! (I know…it makes me feel giddy knowing that I just saved the planet. I’m like Superman.)
But seriously, earlier this week my co-worker told me about something called a “Pre-Demolition Sale.” This is something I’ve never heard of before, but apparently there are people who buy extremely expensive homes and then tear the whole thing down to rebuild something new. And well, their loss is our gain, right? Today’s sale involved a large stone home on the Main Line. Nick and I went out there with tools in hand and managed to get two truckloads of slate flagstone, which included the walkway [shown below] and about 20′ of two-inch thick large slate capstones. All for $250. This will come in quite handy when we want to do our backyard project next summer. (We’ve also decided to do a retaining wall in the front with all those capstones.)
Anyways…we’re both really tired from digging out flagstone and carrying it all day. I’m thrilled about the new discovery of these sales though. If you live in Philly and are planning on some home makeover projects you should check out their website for the next one. I think there’s another one next week.
And p.s., yes, they are going to tear down this house. All that stone will be gone for good.
So if you’re like me (and you probably are since you’re reading this blog), you make a lot of purchases online. It’s not that I dislike buying things from stores, but the reality is that I have VERY particular tastes and specifications. Well, in preparation for moving to my new home there are lots of things that I need get to get. Some things are normal like new locks & paint…and then there are seemingly normal (yet distressingly hard to find) items like an outdoor motion sensor light that doesn’t look like something attached to a prison…or one that’s a wall sconce. I need a light that is a ceiling mount fixture, but it turns out that attractive motion sensor lights are not that easy to find. (I’m surprised!) So after a futile trip to Lowe’s and about an hour of google searching, I finally found ONE. The only one available it seems. (On the bright side, it’s relatively stylish and wasn’t tooo expensive.) But the best part was that I was able to use my new favorite website www.retailmenot.com to get $10 off. This is about the 5th time I’ve used this site to find free shipping codes, $$ off coupons, etc. And I’m extremely happy with the results. I’ve not paid shipping each time!! Super cool…and I also saved some dough on my new lighting purchase.
