oo, cute pillow!

anyone need a black and white pillow? I haven't seen this in store, but I found it on Target's website.

It's on clearance currently for $10.24. click here for more info.

deal alert

wandering around Target the other day, I found a ceramic horse sculpture that I knew was familiar. Ah yes, I've seen it in the home of the bloggers at This Young House (link to the left). You can see it in the first picture of this entry.

On their website is is currently listed for the clearance price of $10.49 but I saw it for $6 something in our local store. It doesn't really fit with my home but I thought maybe one of you could use it.

some more lamp love

so I sat down for a nice relaxing evening and grabbed my pottery barn catalog to flip through all of their overpriced stuff to see what I could copy for a lot cheaper when I came across their new lamps that they love so much they are on the first page of their lamp section, featured.

This is the Pottery Barn Hamilton table lamp

It bore a striking resemblance that I could not ignore to my pharmacy lamp that I had picked up from Target several months before.

my Target pharmacy lamp

personally, I'm actually a little more partial to the style of mine. The Pottery Barn Hamilton lamp currently retails at $139.00. I picked up mine for approximately $20! What a huge difference in price. The quality is spectacular and the design is beautiful. I totally win, Pottery Barn.

Now I am not finding my lamp on Target's website, but I do see it occasionally in store. So if you're hoping to snag one of your own, check out your nearest store. There is a similar one on Target's website at the moment but I don't like it as much and it's a little more expensive than mine.

check out my cute new dress

cute, huh? Looks like something you'd see at Ann Taylor Loft or somewhere like that. Well you might be just as surprised as I was to find out that this little number here is from Old Navy. wow! They sure have jumped up for those performance fleece days (did I just get the jingle stuck in your head?). The best part is the price. It was only $30. With all the sales they've had going on these days I dragged my husband to the store and announced he was my best friend for best friends weekend and I got 20% off of the already low price. I will reward said husband by wearing it tonight on our date night. Isn't he lucky? Okay, maybe I'm the lucky one for finding such a great deal in such an unexpected place. They have several other great styles out there right now too. Check 'em out!

so I posted before about how many subscribers we have, via google reader. Well here's an update. We are now up to 151 subscribers. WOW. Thanks for reading my crappy and not updated enough blog! I feel honored that people would actually want to read my little ramblings. So now here's some homework for YOU. Leave a comment here and let me know how you found my blog. I'd be very interested to see the responses! thanks guys!

Deal Alert!

I read on a friend's blog about These bags are inspired by popular designer brands but can be purchased from $30-$80, which is MUCH closer to what I'm willing to pay for a handbag. They are launching a new site and in the meantime are giving away a free bag each hour. And you all KNOW there is no better than FREE! So head over there and sign up for your free handbag. Just don't sign up for the one I want, because you'd decrease my chances ;)
