I took a break this past week because I had a Tim Johnson Band gig and then my mom came to visit! We had lots of adventures, so I thought I would share! If you couldn't tell from the title, this post will be picture heavy, but it will be entertaining... I think :)
(Side note: These pictures are from my iPhone, so don't judge them too harshly lol)
First up, pictures from Garden Ridge. My mom wanted to take me there because she knew I would love it and I totally did. I have a feeling you guys would love it as well.
The first thing we walked into were tons of patio furniture/cushions. There were several more sections, so don't let this picture fool you!
The best part (for me) was the incredible lamp/lampshade and pillow section. It was as if the heavens opened up, people.
Once I was done drooling there, we looked at the furniture. Here are my favorite pieces:
They also have a large gnome section (which is kind of cute and creepy at the same time)
And these hilarious toilet paper roll holders (which I posted on Instagram):
Then, my mom, Crystal (my roommate), and I went to Highlands, NC for a few days. I specifically loved this decor store called Dutchmans:
Can someone PLEASE buy me this elephant head?!
I also loved the rugs from an antique store that we went to. As you look at these, imagine me trying to take these nonchalantly on my iPhone...
If I had a bagillion dollars, I would have bought everything. But alas, I'm still a poor kid :)
All of these pieces gave me inspiration for upcoming projects, though!
So.. which piece was your favorite?
