Yesterday I went to Home Goods to buy lamps for a client. I didn’t find any lamps I wanted but I did not leave empty-handed. I walked out with a new awesome vegetable knife, some tongs, and a basket–this water hyacinth basket for magazines:
I’m a sucker for a good basket and a good deal and this one was on sale for $10 at our local Home Goods. My magazines are starting to take over our bedroom so this will help with that.
And I have been on a mission lately to buy more accessories for our house because I have noticed that I pretty much use the same ones over and over again every time I do a photo shoot in the house. I was going to look for something while at Home Goods but I realized I have a hard time buying little knick knacks unless they are functional, vintage or really personal. One exception however, would be this little vase I bought recently at Target:
I love how smooth and chalky it is. I need to put a little flower in it now that the garden is about to start blooming.
Also, the other day while out scavenging for the flea market (did I mention Camille and I are selling at the flea market again in, gulp, 2 weeks! I am so not ready…) I bought this vintage urn at an antique store. It is so heavy! I’m kind of liking the rusty patina too.
Also back on February 26th I ordered this bag, below, from West Elm and am dying to get it. I desperately needed something cute and durable for samples and supplies and I’m really hoping this will do the trick. I’ll let you know when it arrives–why does it have to take so long? I have been so frustrated with West Elm’s shipping lately. The fabric I ordered from them for the wingback took six weeks! It’s great fabric though. Here’s a pick of the bag:
What about you? Made any good purchases lately?
