Stylish Sale Saturday

I always love a bargain! Who doesn't. . .unless you have so much money it's coming out of your ass and you really don't have to worry about it.

I don't know what it is. I mean, yes, a lower price on something that you know someone out there has paid more for is great but I think it is the thrill of finding it and the chase to get it.

I am seriously, seriously addicted to craigslist! I've shown you the table that I got, the post office boxes which were great finds. Well, I've bought two more pieces of furniture in the last week! The funny thing about it is, one of them is a couch that originally came from the same store as the table and chairs that I shared with you.

Here it is. . .EQ3 Saga Sofa. IT FREAKIN' MATCHES MY La-Z-Boy Chairs!!

The other piece I bought was a knoty pine. . .. hehehe naughty pine ;) armoire. I mean if you have seen one armoire I feel like you have seen them all.

With all of these great deals and my browsing on the net, I figured I would share some great deals and designs with you. I will list them by store or website :)


I am addicted to this site. They have really cool gifts, decor, etc. and there is something new everyday! Don't be surprised if you don't see some of these items that I show on the site today. . . it means that sale has already ended. But trust me, more cool stuff will come.

The ever so exciting Target

Target always is helping out new lines and getting them out there for the everyday shopper. I can't thank them enough for introducing the Liberty of London brand to me last summer! Well, they are now offering Dwell Studio bedding and what not at their stores and online. I am in love with this Baroque design. I must have it for when we get our new king bed to fit our family :) If you remember from an earlier post, I already bought my son's bedding. . . and of course it is Dwell. But for some reason, it is MUCH more expensive haha. shhhhh.

It comes in a comforter set and a duvet set. You also get the option of shower curtain, rug, pillow, and more! And to me, it's a steal for a king set for $99.

Ohh IKEA how I love thee.

Granted, if you are looking for super sturdy, lifelong, solid wood furniture, this isn't the stuff for you which also means you are going to be opening up your wallet a little more.

I love this set. It comes in several different color options as well. You can get the king size bed frame, chest of drawers, and two night stands for $708! LET'S DO IT!


Who knew WestElm was so affordable?!

I'm pretty sure if you come visit my house within the next couple of weeks, these pillows will be on the new couch. :)Just when you thought it couldn't get any better. . .I bring you Crate & Barrel

I need these for my son's room! Notice that the orange ones are the only ones on sale at the moment.

Crate & Barrel loves your pets. . .they know that they deserve good design as well!

Now that I've shared Crate & Barrel. . .well we can't forget CB2

I know someone who I'd love to get this for that is probably going to read this at some point ;)

Now I'm not huge in the fact that this is a short-hand text message pillow, but I am a sucker for pieces that have white type on a black surface!

I couldn't leave without putting something cute, really well designed and baby related in today's post. So here are some diaper bag organizers from The cool think about Amazon is that if you are a student or mom to be, sign up for Amazon Prime. . .It gives you FREE 2 day shipping!

A Great Mid to Late-Day Distraction and Inspiration

This is probably one my new favorite shops on Etsy. These prints are so freakin' cute and funny. So many of them sum up my life I think this designer is living in my head but has the illustration skills I lack!

Check out Yellow Heart Art on Etsy.

if you know me, you should know where this is coming from! HAHAHAHA

fo sho!


for some reason this reminds me of my girl Jordan over at PaperStitchVintage

This reminds me of someone I met in Cali. . .If you are still around,
you know who you are. HA!

everyone needs to have a little fun!


freakin' love this!

Another Bean-eriffic Tuesday

You know what's harder than keeping this blog up? Decorating a nursery at an affordable price and with some taste!

Holy geeze this entry will not even cover half of the crap I've looked at over the past several months. . .I wish I would have saved all of the screen shots of all of the cool cribs I've seen. I should apologize now for not being able to link these images with their relative sites for you to look up. I'll get better.

So here is a barrage of photos of really cool cribs, bedding, and toys that I will be getting, liked, considered and only wish I could afford. . . .

What we are going with:

The husband is an amazing woodworker so he is going to build the nursery furniture for me and the Bean :)

you can find this crib for sale on :)

I like this kind of storage so he is going to build something along these lines and a bookshelf.

I want to find bright colorful canvas baskets to use. . .but these are from
Pottery Barn Kids for reference.

We hope to get all kinds of cute but educational and fun wooden toys like these.

And last, but not least. . . the bedding!


Dwell Studio's Skyline Crib Set. . .and yes, I already bought it. . .I had to.

The set is sold out everywhere and I was terrified that I wouldn't get it in time. I found it at a cute little shop in Cali called The Pampered Tot

I have only purchased the set and not the accent pillow, changing pad cover, etc. . .so I hope to get that as well. :)
