I wanted to share some things that I purchased with my Christmas money recently. I have a thing for fur this year. Faux fur, not real fur! So, when I found this fur covered stool at World Market, I grabbed it up. It was on sale, which helped me afford it. It is only available online though.
I placed it in front of the fireplace but it can be pulled up for extra seating and putting your feet up on. I just like the femininity of it and the texture of the fur. My husband said it reminded him of something you would see in the 70's. Hmmmm..............(thanks honey! I never even thought of that. I will try to erase that image from my brain now since I don't like the 70's style.)
I brought out my florentine tray to place candles on my coffee table. I wanted to keep my coffee table simple now that I want my wooden prayer beads to be the main feature!
And, I always keep a box of Kleenex out in my house because I have the sniffles year round. It is apparently genetic since my parents do too. So, rather than looking at an ugly cardboard box that doesn't match my decor, I ordered this florentine tissue box from Etsy.
Now, it blends right in and I just refill it when it's empty.
I'm also loving inspirational quotes. I have a few pictures of them on my walls already, but I recently found this one at Hobby Lobby and thought it was perfect for the wall by the stairs.
It fills this large wall better than what I did have there. Did you know that Hobby Lobby has a TON of pictures like this? No need to go to Sugarboo Designs and pay hundreds of dollars or even some other websites that charge over $100! This large picture was on sale for just $40. Now that's what I'm talking about!
So, there you have it. Just a few new pretty things that I've acquired lately and have been enjoying using in my home.
In other news, my husband and I have finally selected our new kitchen appliances and we'll purchase them from an appliance store. Another blogger suggested that I use that type of store as opposed to a big box store like Lowes. We received amazing customer service and decided to go with a bundle package that will save us some money. We have chosen all LG appliances. This way, they will all match and we can use their rebate.
I hope that you have a great weekend! We are expecting some winter weather here later today. I have no idea why they closed schools in my area though! I think it will mostly be a rain event for my neighborhood. I know that many of you up north are preparing for a severe storm however. Be safe!
Thanks for stopping by.
