How do you do, Homegoods?

Homegoods is like my homeboy. We tight. I used to be 1/4 mile from Homegoods, so whenever the mood would strike {which was often, let’s be honest} I would put on my walking shoes and head-on-over. These days, I actually got to grab a set of wheels to get my tuckus over there. Although I do try to strategically plan all of our weekend trips to revolve around that side of town, I am seeing a little less of my main slice these days. And you know, absence has only made the heart grow founder.

The second I walk into this joint, it’s like a calming drug. Actually for like one second it’s calming, and then my bargain hunting sensors engage and I’m off with my shopping cart in hand. The pillows are always my first stop, cause I’m always on the hunt for a new set. Just got a soft spot for those plushy fabulous things. And, they are right next to the door, so they usually suck me in first. Then, I’m off to the clearance section. 😉 Like a moth to light, I just have an indescribable force that slowly pulls me in. I try to resist it, but it’s futile.

Here are some of my favorites from our most recent trip. I held back, and didn’t walk out with all of it. But it was a struggle, I’m telling ya! Look at this lovely, lovely lamp. Gah! I wanted it so bad. Still might go back and snag this beauty for the downstairs office area.

I loved these little ikat storage containers, perfect for keeping all those drawers neat and clean. Love it. At $5.99 a pop, I think it’s a pretty nice way to snazz up a drawer.

Baskets. I don’t think you can have enough of em’. I liked how these ones were a bit different than the typical fare I go for. I think these would be great for kiddie storage, or for throwing some extra blankets in, no? It almost looks like a little drum. He, he. I love it.

Check out these curtains. They would be a great pop of color in a more neutral room. I had my eye on them for our guest bedroom, or maybe, if I felt like getting all ca-razy town I would put them in the living room.

I got a soft spot for unique picture frames. I think that it just adds a little bit more pizzaz to a gallery wall, or desk shelf. This little guy was a total winner. I usually wait for the picture frames to go on clearance though, test my luck a bit.

And of course, I couldn’t walk out empty handed – ya know what I mean?? I snagged myself some beuts with these ikat pillows and this rockin’ horse book stand. I’ve got big plans for the horse once we finish installing the bookshelves in the basement. Think he is going to look awfully handsome keeping some books all propped up. Can’t wait to do some bookcase stylin.
