Novelty Nutcrackers, Dollar Store Style

West Elm has the cutest Novelty Nutcrackers! Only problem is, they are TWENTY NINE BUCKS! And if you want the jumbo one it's $59! Ouch. I'm not cheap, I'm thrifty! I {lurve} them though. So I plotted a scheme to get me surme o' those there nutcrackers. I found these hideous things at the Dollar Tree. I don't think "hideous" is a strong enough word to describe... The hair! The hair is what kills me. I ripped that hair off quicker than you can say "holy-hell-that-looks-horrible" and gave them all a good coat of spray paint primer. Then I took … [Read more...]

Christmas Mantle, compliments of Target & IKEA

The mantle is getting Christmas-a-fied! This year I decided to go simple. A few Target Dollar Spot Ornaments... I bought this soft beautiful pine garland (fake) from IKEA for only $7! I've been meaning to head back over and get a few more for other areas in the house. I hope they aren't sold out before I get back there. I love these Stockings! They are so simple, yet so vibrant.

New hall table from IKEA

I have this spot in my entry way that seems really bare. I've been wanting to put something here, but nothing I've tried has worked. As luck would have it, I was browsing the As-Is section at IKEA the other day and found this! It's in great condition, already assembled, and half off! I pulled out my mini tape measure I keep in my purse and low and behold it was the perfect size. Not too wide, not too deep, and not too short! So of course I snatched it up and brought it home with me. I plan to eventually give it a coat of paint, but since the top is butcher block I'm … [Read more...]
