Yesterday I stopped by the local Salvation Army. Oh man, did they have amazing furniture. I wanted to buy it all! But of course, I couldn't and didn't.*
But what I did find was a beautiful still life oil painting! There are so many things I love about it. It's a mint green with robins egg blue accents... it even has a little nest with robins eggs in it. It also has oranges [Orange County]. I like art that means something.
I almost didn't buy it - what was I thinking?? Then another shopper walked by, who looked like he knew what he was doing, and said "wow, great find". I walked straight to the checkout.
When I got home, I couldn't believe how perfect it was for my robin's egg blue console table.
Can you believe these pillows (on the couch) have been sitting in their plastic wrap in the garage for at least a year? I got them mega on sale from Cost Plus. I recently found them when cleaning the garage, and voila - they match perfectly with the newly painted console. I love when things just fit like that.
I have to admit, I love the softer pallet I've gone with in this room. The bright yellow stripes were fun, but just didn't fit. I think I'm moving it up to the bedroom.
*It's times like these, when I see so many great things while on a impromptu shopping trip that I want to blog about, that I wish I had a [really nice] camera phone. This brings me to the rug situation.... due to a couple of reasons, I am forgoing the rug for now and I think I may ask for an iPhone for my birthday instead. One main reason is because Charlotte has been having some post-surgery potty issues and I'd hate for a nice new rug to be ruined.
