Always decorating

The forecast calls for the first BIG snow fall of the season starting today and all I want to do is cuddle up on the couch with a pile of quilts and hot cocoa. I have a feeling my fur babies wouldn’t mind joining in too.

Don’t get my wrong, I love everything about Minnesota, but could we just forget about  the snow and cold weather. If it wasn’t for family and our amazing thrift stores here, I would be packing my bags and moving somewhere that didn’t have temperatures below 50.

With the colder weather beginning I can finally start tackling some in-door projects that I have been ignoring over the summer / fall.

A few weeks ago I spotted this SUPER cute side table while browsing the isles at Target but goodness I couldn’t justify the price.

Not long after falling in love with the two toned  whicker side table at Target I came across this canned round piece at the Goodwill for $4.00.  Although the style is a little different I knew I could make it cute with a little paint.  And I mean … $4.00 vs. $63.00 !!!!!!

As much as I wanted to splurge and buy the side tables at Target I am so happy I waited and found something that turned out just as cute.
