Fun Fridays...favorite things

I love anything to do with design, decorating, and accessories. Give me magazines, stores, articles and websites! I will pour over them all! And if money was not an object, I'd have my home completely curtained, painted, and accessorized!! But back to reality...I'm a mommy on a budget baby and when it comes to decorating our home, I'm a bargain hunter! I will undoubtly find something I like while out shopping, but will I buy it? NO! I will wait till I shop around a little more and try to find the best deal! I am sort of notorious for this and it drives my Mom crazy! I can hear her now, Becky if you like it, just buy it. Sometime I should take her advice because as bad as I hate to admit it I have gone back to buy things and they've been gone...bummer! But most of the time, I check around and make sure it is really what I want, at the best price and THEN swoop in for the buy. Decorating can be a lot of fun
especially when you find a bargain because then, you can buy twice as much. RIGHT??!?!

These two little guys have been my favorite purchase recently. I call them my little chick-a-dees.

Do you see them?

No? Look closer...

These photographs are not in the best of lighting! How about now?

I love these little guys because they're so "purdy" and super versatile! I've already used them as toppers on my magazine stack. Next to my lamp on our living room in table and on my sofa table in our entry. Want to know the best part? I paid $6.00 for them BOTH. No, that's not a typo, SIX dollars total at my favorite decorating place Hobby Lobby! They were already on sale and I printed out the store's online coupon at their website and got an extra 30% off. I just saw a similar set in my last months edition of Ballard's Home Furnishings catalogue priced at $24.99! Oh so satisfying and one of my favorite things to nest on our mantle.

I love the chicks, very cute. I like to bargain hunt too and Hobby Lobby has great buys. My mom is the same way. I think they just want us to have everything that we want. The "mamma" in them never stops.
