Decorating Dreams

Ok, it's bad enough that I watch HGTV for hours on end dreaming about how I want to decorate. Today I had to go and torment myself even further by shopping with my daughter. First stop was Bed Bath and Beyond where my daughter found a wonderful stripe shower curtain for the bathroom. As we were leaving we took a peak at the wall art where she found this to go with it.
The photo shown came off the website and does not do justice to the picture itself. It is a blend of aqua, blues and greens, which are the colors in the shower curtain.
She left happy and we headed next door to Target where she bought a set of cookware and a toaster. I found a new microwave stand which will match the old wooden cupboard I have in the dining room. It has a drawer in the middle plus an under cabinet. The top is butcher block that is the same color as my table top. I really didn't have to have a stand but I wanted to free up some counter space and it gives me an extra drawer for potholders and that type of things. The kitchen here only has two small drawers. Anyway I'm happy. There is only one small problem.
Between the two stores I came to the conclusion that everything I have packed away in boxes should just be tossed in the trash. My things are old and ugly and out of style..Sigh...
I tend to be very eclectic in what I buy and I have a jumble of this and that. Plus I made a big mistake a few years ago and got a blue living room suite. Blue is a very hard color to match with today's fashions. I hope to slowly buy some new things and when I do the thrift store shoppers will be happy.

Just take your time and buy a little here and there. It will come together for you. I am sure it will be very nice and pretty. The hunt is so much fun.

Take care,
Connie
