What's New Around the Little Abode

I haven't done a house post in a while. Probably because there hasn't been much new going on in that department. But I've decided that even if it is a small buy it deserves a feature because it makes me happy. Seriously, a new hand towel for the kitchen makes me happy.

Any who, you know when you want something but every time you go into a store you just can't find it. Not the color, not the shape, not anything you want.

And then one day you just happen into a store and it's like God shined down on you and said, "Child, I want you to be happy today." Yes, I felt that way.

Introducing the two new pillows I've search over a year for. Best part, they were on sale!!! I have this color blue accent around the house and I wanted it in the living room too.

My sister tried to stop me from buying them, telling me they were too girly and hubs was going to think I was trying to sprinkle fairy dust around the house. Um, what?

I said, hey, he got that huge recliner in our tiny living room and I dealt with it so he will deal with this. Funny part was that when I showed hubby the pillows he liked them. Or maybe he didn't want to see me get all pouty {is that a word?} if he said he didn't like them.




Excuse the camera pictures, when my camera wants to have PMS there is no stopping her.

And then I found another item that I've been searching for, for over a year. I've been wanting to place something on that bar wall and I finally found it. I told you God shined down on me that day.



So that's what's new around my abode. What about yours?!

I love your pillows & all of the colors in that room. Our couch is 15 years old ~ wish you could go shopping with me & help me pick out a new one!
We have nothing new in our house except some dust! HA!

Those pillows are so cute! They are girly but its a nice balance with everything else in the room. Hmm I recently raided ikea and revamped my bedroom so perhaps i'll do a post on that soon!

God was certainly shining down on you with these buys! Because they are totally fabulous! Your pillows certainly "pop" and your tree is amazing. I'm green with envy! May I ask where you purchased your tree? I might have to (shamelessly) go hunt it down!

Those pillows are amazing and I think the texture is so great with that couch!

What an awesome find. :) I LOVE it when that happens!

Hey girlie.....I am glad you did this post because I think often we forget to make a big deal of the small things. I love the bar wall thingie - it's really pretty and as for the pillows - a little splash of girliness never hurt nobody (wink wink)! Thanks for sharing!!

Love the pillows! Glad Sean does too! lol. But that metal tree wall art... LOVE to death! Seriously! I saw one similar the other day and wanted to buy it, but I wouldn't know where to put it! You have the perfect placement! :)

Melissa said...

Pretty!

We're going to be getting ready to sell our house once the new year hits. Not looking forward to massive cleaning, painting, etc to get it all ready.

I love that accent piece on the wall! Looks like the giving tree!

Cute pillows!

I always have that dilemma when buying something for our place. If i bought something too girly, my hub would demand something i know i wouldn't like to be placed in our "public" room.

It really is hard to find something when you are specifically looking for it so I totally understand how happy these little things make you. Not too much on our house front either these days...

Nice decorating!
I really like the color scheme in your living room and the pillows make it pop. Great addition.
The tree is very nice too.
