Pantry Rug & Coat Hooks

Felt like “showing and telling” today…

I bought this little number at TJ Maxx about a month ago.

LOVE the two different textures woven together to create the stripe effect.
The cream colored stripe is a soft, stringy material and the darker stripe is some kind of natural, jute-like material.
It was the perfect (odd) size for my Pantry!

And I found these on sale for $3.00 each at Kirklands, earlier this year.

Perfect for the “Lettered Cottage”, don’t you think? :-)
I’ve got them hanging in the Kitchen, next to the Laundry Room.

Probably my single most favorite thing in the world to do, is shop for home accessories.
Rugs, lighting, art, decor, storage…I have a deeply, intense passion for all of it! And judging by most of the blogs I read, I’m not alone!
I have to FIGHT to not constantly smile in stores like Pottery Barn, ZGallerie, Ikea and HomeGoods. And don’t even get me started about the Pottery Barn OUTLET. Each time I’m allowed to vi$it (usually once a year, on my birthday…and yes, that’s a dollar sign in the word “visit”), it’s the most insanely euphoric experience.
Is that weird?

    Oh I 100% understand. I just spent a good two hours at homegoods this weekend, just smiling. I only bought a laptop bag, but still had a wonderful time.

    These stores really do put people in a good mood. I worked at Carte and Barrel for a year and never had a grumpy or mean customer once, not even during christmas. I LOVED IT. If it would pay all my bills I would still work there :)
