Deer and Pouf Decor: 2 Things I Adore!

Thursday, March 8, 2012

It's been ages since I've put much thought into our home decor. After almost 2 years of thinking we're selling, moving or somethingfortheloveofcoconut I had put off any effort into updating our condo, even in the smallest way, waiting to see what might transpire.  Turns out, we're still here and I'm sooo ready for an update. Even though I'm still working on the master plan for the living room, I made two purchases over the weekend that I'm absolutely thrilled with (and eagerly awaiting their delivery!) that I just had to share. The pouf has been on my wishlist for months - after hemming and hawing and refusing to pay $200 for one my genius husband suggested ebay et voila!, pouf be mine. The deer, however, was an instantaneous decision that I fell upon while browsing rugs. My heart skipped a beat at the sight (you know I love me some deer!) and after Retail Me Not came through with a coupon code (never, ever, ever pay full price!) sweet Deer* also became mine. I'm giddy at the thought of both. My mom (avid reader of this blog and many others) shared this article with me about being happy at home and it all made perfect sense. Besides, I know I'll love these items no matter where we might live in the near or distant future.

*Names for Deer are in the works and I would love your input. Looking for something light and sweet but not to sugary. (Naming inanimate objects is one of my "things", my first car was called Francois if you must know. :)

P.S. I know it's been more of a blah, less of a blog around here lately but things should be calming down and getting back to normal with the Chicago Fashion Foundation event behind me (it went great!). Thanks for your patience dear readers!
