Holler Dollar: Glitter Toes

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Next week Sarah and I are flying out to look after our sisters kids, so she can go to New York for a week with her hubby. In prep for many nights of nail painting with the little ladies, I decided to stock up on a few faves, and of course I couldn’t resist trying a few newbies.

My favorite for sure is “Sparked” by Wet n Wild.  Looks as good as glitter toes, doesn’t need a top coat, and doesn’t chip!  Perfect for a three year old! And at only 99 cents it’s hard to beat. Thanks Alex and Jen for the recommendation!

Oh, and If you have 8 minutes, watch THIS girl’s review of Wet and Wild Nail polish.  It’s hilarious and informative :)

Pedestal Accent Table

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

I love a great Pedestal table, I think I inherited this love from my mother.  I’m actually thinking about all the round tables we’ve ever had,  and I think the phrase “slight obsession” is a better description.  It is a classic piece you know you can buy, put anywhere, and will never go out of date.

Pedestals look great flanking a bed.  Somehow it makes the bedroom feel more formal.  Do any of you like this look too?  I’m hoping to have a pair in my guestroom someday.

A pedestal accent table looks adorable nestled next to a sofa or chair in a living room.  Side tables right next to where you are sitting makes a cozy little place stow your drink, magazines and remotes (Sarah and I especially love using trays like the one below).

Isn’t that last pic amazing?!  What a gorgeous pedestal table and slip-covered wing-back chairs!   I am definitely needing a little pedestal next to my wing-back chair.  Hmm, that actually reminds me of something…

I’ve been eyeing this little guy at Target for some time.  For $79 I think  it is a good deal, one problem:  squishing it in one very full living room.

Rumor has it that it’s on sale, 50% off.  I think I may have to give it a try.  How about you?

Holler Dollar: Brown Paper Package

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Don’t you just love the simplicity of Brown paper and twine? To me, it can never get old. This version found at the Dollar Tree adds just a little flare to classic, with a white design.

The tag was made with just a scrap of card stock + ribbon, and the cute font stamps are from the dollar section at Walmart.

Do you guys have any finds for a buck? If so, we’d love so feature them.

Yes to Checks!

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

A few days ago Sar and I visited the lovely Calico Corners fabric store where I found a bolt of clearance check fabric reduced from $39/yard to $1.99!  I am planning on it for some throw cushions for the living room to really cozy things up for the fall, but I was dying to use it immediately.  Sar had the idea of hanging a strip behind our bed.

This piece of fabric cost $4! It goes great with our new fab lamps and creates a statement I like for the fall.
