I Spy…

Birds. I’ve been loving little birdies since I decided I was going for a nature/vintage/glam theme in our home – with birds falling into the nature category. Plus, my mother-in-law has been calling Evan Baby Bird since forever so that may be the underlying real reason for my attraction.

Either way, these little birdies are way adorable and can’t help but continue to spot them in pillows, accessories, wallpaper and figurines. Here are some of my favorite.

Been loving this Romo wallpaper for some time now.

Birds on the ceiling – such a cute idea. And really loving the bird houses on the wall as well.

When I received my March issue of Elle Decor, my eye couldn’t help but be drawn to the black and white bird framed art mounted on the glossy wall.

The birdie atop the desk makes this space that much more whimsical.

My paper mache bird from Craig Olsen

A bird rock I normally keep in the bathroom and an image of some bird pattern file folders I don’t file anything in.

Some other cute bird accessories I’d like to share.

Bargain Bin

Ahh yes, snagging something at bargain price is a feeling like no other. But for the record, I don’t buy miscellaneous junk for the sake of saving a buck. Sale or no sale, I only really buy things I absolutely LOVE or will get lots of use out of (the splurging only happens with timeless items). I’m quite frugal and damn proud of it.

And I love helping others bargain shop as well.

Here are some stile worthy items at bargain price.

Change out your boring ole dresser/cabinet knobs with these $2.95 knobs from Anthropologie

https://i0.wp.com/media.pier1.com/img/pier1com/productimages/2382286.jpg

Ooh, I love a good sunburst mirror. This one is only $39.98 at Pier One

https://i2.wp.com/www.ikea.com/PIAimages/0085328_PE213020_S3.JPG

You already know I love me some stripes. This rug is only $12.99 at Ikea. I know, I know it’s from Ikea. But place it in a low traffic area and it could last you longer than a month.

A feminine shower curtain without being too girlie. Yours for the price of $19.99 at Urban Outfitters

Decorative pillows are always a way to add some punch to any room. These Nate Berkus pillows from HSN will only set you back $5. Yes, F-I-V-E dollars!!! Now I know how Subway lovers felt when the foot long promo started.

Vase from Kmart for $24.99. Such a pretty blend of colors creating lots of movement. Sort of reminds me of a peacock. This would look great mounted on a mantel,  a bookcase, in a grouping of similar vases, or on a table with some freshly cut fuchsia flowers.

Not your standard candlestick holders. These, from West Elm, are only $39.00 but their look is well above the marked price. They’re also reminiscent of the mid-century ones (below) designed by Ceasar Stoffi.

Wire baskets are a perfect solution for storing and displaying items on a bookcase, console or open shelves. I’ll be using mine in the kitchen. You can purchase the smaller one for $12.95 or the larger one for $15.95 at Crate and Barrel.

Happy Bargain Shopping

Tray Chic

Plain and simple – I love trays. They’re a great way to create groupings of fun accessories or loose knickknacks without looking sloppy.  They can be placed on a coffee table, dining table, nightstand, dresser, bar, bathroom (you get the jist) and they come in an array of sizes, colors and patterns. Take a look below to see which one suits your stILe.

PS – I must be honest. I stole the pun from an issue of House Beautiful. The content though, is all me.

Now witness some in the home:

My nightstand with tray from Home Goods. A perfect solution for placing my jewelry once the day has concluded.
