New Stuff

My mom and I went shopping yesterday.  She bought me this gray furry pillow from Target as a housewarming gift.
I'm kind of obsessed with it.  I adore the color scheme of gray, hot pink and turquoise.  I'm planning to put a lot more blue and turquoise in my home.  My next slip cover will probably be turquoise.
We went to the Goodwill.  I got these two cute little bottles.  Only 50 cents each.  In keeping with my rule about something must leave to make room for something new, I donated a vintage Avon bottle.  The shape and color of these little bottles please me.  They reflect the changing sunlight in my place beautifully.

Here's a picture of how my living room looks today.  Not perfect, but I love it.  I have a large ottoman that I am refurbishing, I will use that as a coffee table.  Also, I would like an over sized vintage ceramic lamp to put where the moon lamp is currently, so I will be keeping an eye out at flea markets and garage sales.  I wish I could paint my walls bright white.  Oh well, better to focus on the positives.  I love how clean and modern my new place is, and I love living simply.  Living simply doesn't mean it can't be pretty!

Those bottles are an amazing find for fifty cents!

That was real nice of your mom. It's a great pillow.

You might want to check out these two blogs I stumbled upon. I was thinking of you because there was pink going on. But I can't tell you how to find these posts because you know, I was clicking from one post to another, from one blog to another. Anyway, they are and I'm pretty sure those were the addresses!

Those bottles look like vases I saw at Target yesterday. I love the pillow. I hope to get white fuzzy pillows for my couch. :)
