Friday Finds

Thank goodness for finds! :) Here are a few great deals that I've recently stumbled upon. Hope you enjoy them...and your Friday!

This 5' x 7' Safavieh "Soho" Turquoise Area Rug from Macys.com is on sale for $598.99. I know that might not seem like a great deal, but considering it was originally $1,129.00 and is a hand-tufted wool rug, it's a GREAT deal! The colors and medallion design are right up my alley. Simply beautiful.


If you don't want to spend that much, check out this other stunning rug from Macys.com. This gorgeous golden 5' x 8' Surya Area Rug is on sale for $329, originally $549.


If you have a thing for vintage glassware like I do, then these vintage inspired plum beauties from World Market are for you. Unfortunately the pitcher is all sold out but the dot tumblers and juice glasses are still in stock and on sale for 50% off! Originally $15.96 for a set of 4, they're now $7.92. I love the hint of color and textured glass. Oh so charming. Don't they just make you want have a patio party and make some lemonade?


This antique style wire chair from Urban Outfitters would be the perfect edition to a casual breakfast nook or an outside patio. I love the sleek lines are married with the rustic finish. Originally $78.00, they're now on sale for $49.00.


These glass pillar candle holders from Z Gallerie are a must have. They are perfect for a casual or sophisticated look, fitting into any decor due to their simple design and glass makeup. And better yet, they're on sale! Originally $16.99 (11") and $14.99(9"), they're now $9.99.

Unfortunately, Jon will be out of town for the next 4 days so I'm thinking I need a new project to keep me occupied. I'm about to head to Hobby Lobby, so the possibilities are endless!

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :) Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print. A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos. An antique baby basket helped house the gifts. The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee. The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar.  And of course no shower is comp

Table Decorating Contest

Jon and I are leaving to spend a long weekend in San Antonio with his parents and his brother (who will be town from Arizona).  But before we go, I wanted to leave you with some pictures from the Officer Spouses Club Table Decorating Contest that was held last night. I called Jon on my way home from base, and he immediately asked "How was the contest?" to which I responded "Victorious." The 32nd FTS, our squadron, took first place! The theme was Silver Screen so we decided to focus on famous quotes from each movie genre. Each place setting featured a different movie. We had a "drive-in" for our center piece where clips of the famous quotes were shown. Welcome to the Jayhawk Drive-In! Wizard of Oz place setting. The glass had a button you could turn on to make the water swirl and look like a tornado inside. Also notice the witch's feet sticking out from under the plate :) A close-up of the yellow brick road I painted. Silence of the Lambs pl

DIY with Branches

Fall is in the air and that means that many empty branches will soon be too!  Might as well put them to work in jazzing up your decor.  You know what they say...when life gives you branches, make things out of them!  Okay, maybe that's not how it goes, but it's what I'm going to do.  If you'd like to join me, read the DIY projects below. Branch Coffee Table If you're in the market for a contemporary coffee table, but don't want to dish out hundreds (sometimes thousands) of dollars, this is the solution for you.  It's a relatively easy DIY project with room changing results. What you need: 1.  A thick branch (or branches depending on the look and size you want).  Maybe you can help a neighbor cut down a tree.  Then it'll be a win win.  They get the help they need, and you get a new coffee table. 2.  A piece of MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) wood for the base of the table.  Cut to the appropriate size for your limbs-making sure the limbs don't stic
