For your home, what's your splurge?

For me , it's so hard to resist purchasing a clock.  I love a clock. 

If you have been following me for a while, you are so right, I love to shop but at a bargain price;


 I will splurge for a vintage clock.

I have a thing for these clocks  ...  maybe because they are:



add style to a room

You're next....your time to show and tell your home splurge.

Thursday Thought

Good Morning All!  Welcome to my personal thought for today!

Ask not what others are saying about you...

what are you saying about yourself...
Do you see your self as others see you?

Perceptions can be negative or positive..
what's important:  are they true.

Thanks for stopping by.

Birds @ The Nest

What a beautiful Tuesday and  "like" the ideal of sharing it with great friends! Thanks for stopping by...

I'm so excited about my new thrifty finds from Michael's and Pier I.

While shopping with my sisters a couple weeks ago, I became MIA (missing in action). I wandered away from the group and visited  Michael's and Pier 1 and there it was....

an owl and a peacock

Am I the only one that find thrifty decor and wasn't even looking for it?  Have you experienced such a thrill?

Just had to share...soooo cute !

Must have...owl

 Must have...peacock

Fall at the front door

Let me count the way (s ) I admire fall!
Break from the heat..

The weather was so beautiful over the weekend. My 4 year old grandson and I decided to enjoy each other's company outside.  I cherish each moment I spend with him.

He enjoys the outdoors and definitely enjoyed the repetitive motion of the front porch rockers.  It was perfect weather and perfect time to decorate the front door while enjoying his company.

Instead of a wreath this year, I wanted to do something different.  You know how we make daily decisions, some with a greater impact than others. I had purchased earlier a broom and garland (you are right..a thrifty find) hoping to find a home for both.

Decision made...why not showcase my NEW broom?

Check it out..  My grandson said he "likes" it.

Broom it is.

 burlap ribbon
great choice

Wasn't sure how I would use it, but this is sooo perfect

My son pointed out the birds are enjoying the decorated broom.    Hope you were inspired.
Thanks for stopping by the Houz.
