Today I was on the prowl for components of the Mothers Day gift that I am working on (shhhh...can't go into too much detail, or it will spoil the surprise).
Home Goods is one of my favorite go-to stores for many of the items I am looking for, and while I was there (fighting the crowds) I took a few shots of some fun things that caught my eye.
Now, I mentioned the crowds, but let me clarify...when I say crowds, I mean crowds. I've never seen this place so packed! I think the entire City of Phoenix had the same idea that I did. It's like everyone posted on their Facebook page, "headed to Home Goods, meet me there...and bring the kids!"
Because there were so many people in each isle, I didn't get a lot of time to jot down the prices of these items, so I'm doing my best to go by memory.
This ceramic statue of a dog was $19.99, but was super-adorable! There were two different versions of this statue, and they would make a great piece for anyone using white as an accent color. I'm trying to reduce my "on a whim" spending, so since I didn't have a specific game-plan for these pups, I left them on the shelf. I'm sure they'll find a good family to adopt them soon. haha.
This white side-table was only $39.99 on the clearance rack. I was tempted to bring it home and use it in the guest bedroom as a night-stand, but I'm pretty sure I want to use a rectangular shaped piece instead.
I almost bought this lamp too because it was only $39.99. I thought it would look really good in my master bedroom, but they only had one of them. I'm needing a few good lamps for the night-stands in the master, but I'd like them to match up for some symmetry.
These lamps stole my heart too, but they were not on the clearance isle. They were $50.00 apiece, and I was not prepared to spend that much money. I thought that they could work in the master bedroom as well. At least finding both of these lamps gives me an idea of the shape, and style that I would like for the master. You can see that each of these lamps have similar elements, they're just made with different materials, yet either would look good in the space.
I was really surprised by this clock because it was only $49.99. I thought it would be more expensive because it was around 30x30 inches in diameter (that's my estimate). I loved the craftsmanship on this piece and could see it used in both traditional and contemporary settings.
By the end of my shopping spree I did make a small purchase. What did I buy? You'll have to wait and see. I've had this idea for a Mother's Day gift for quite some time, and I'm putting all of the pieces together as we speak....well not technically, because I'm actually typing right now...but just know this post is short & sweet because I'm working on a gift project that says Happy Mother's Day in a down-to-earth way.
Check in tomorrow for more details!
