Some New Accessories

I have been so focused on the living room and family room drapes that I haven't done anything in the way of fun shopping.  It's amazing how you can get focused on one thing and have total tunnel vision about anything else. 

So I finally took some time one day and hit a couple of my favorite stores.  Goodwill usually comes up with something I love.  I found two sacks of these fabulous shell and fiber orbs. They were $2.99 a sack and of course it was 25% off day too.  Some were big, but there were quite a few small ones.  I love all the different textures.



 When I put this vignette together, I didn't have anything in the apothecary jar, these small ones fit perfectly.


 These look fabulous with my marble orbs.  Isn't it fun when you find something that is just perfect.


It seems like I always can use anothe tray.  While I was out looking for drapes, I stopped in at Marshall's.  You can always find a treasure there.  I found this great tray in the clearance section.  Yes, the brass is a little scratched, but that didn't bother me.


 Just look at the price.  How could you go wrong and if it really gets more scratches, I can either try to buff them out or paint it.


So, have you done any fun shopping lately?

  6. Love, love, love the orbs! Just my kind of Goodwill find! They really do look great in the apothecary jar. I love trays, too. I'm always on the lookout for them at G.W. Been trying to curb the shopping instinct, not always successful, though:)

  7. Okay... where were those at the Goodwill ;) I never saw them! It always amazes me what people donate or what Target never sells that ends up at Goodwill.
    I'll see you at you party this afternoon- thanks for the invite!

  14. P.S. I bought that same apothacary jar..isn't it great? Some sweet pink roses did it for me..I love your orbs..I found a few of those too. I get so pleased when I see that you like something I like. :) Which goes to show you I highly respect your opinion..NOW if I could just thin things out, but I KNOW I won't. I'll come visit you when I need to see organization mixed with great taste! :)
    Love,

  15. Those orbs were a great find, Marty! I haven't done any fun shopping in awhile, unless you count buying a couple of clearance sale sweaters off the H&M website fun. : ) I'd really like to get into Goodwill and see what they've got going on. I should have some things to drop off so that would be a good opportunity. We are trying to keep to a budget, given that my husband wants to retire in the next five years. I'm sure "fun shopping" visits will be few and far between.

  16. Those orbs look great. I haven't been shopping lately except in my own home. I've stayed home a lot because of the snow we were getting. I love a project like the one you've begun in the living room. I guess I kind of did that last year. It started with wanting to paint, then the drapes.

  27. What fun new accessories. There is nothing like some new accents in a room to give it a fresh look.

  28. Great find. I love decorating with orbs, so many options. Your vignette looks very pretty. I have to agree with Diane that I rarely find such cool things at GW. I have not been to Marshalls lately. I think some days we strike gold and other days we go bust. We just keep looking and will eventually find a treasure.
