Home Goods Goodness

I went to Home Goods this morning looking for a new lamp for my dresser in my bedroom.  They usually have a great selection at great prices.  I was surprised with the selection and high prices this time around.

So I didn't leave with a lamp, but I did bring home this cute rooster tray for $15.


And perched him on top of my fridge.


The dark stain of the wood goes nicely with my floors and granite.


Just gotta find a new home for this painting now.



We are enjoying some crisp Fall-like weather here in South Jersey.  Perfect for making chilli or homemade soup.  I have a great recipe I'll share with you next week for chunky potato soup.  Here's a preview....


Straight from the chalkboard I made in the kitchen.

What are your plans for the weekend?

I love me some Home Goods!!!! Great tray! We are off to visit family in Tennessee this weekend. My in-laws volunteer at a fossil site so we are going to see where they found a wooly mammoth as they were trying to build a new highway. The leaves hopefully are changing there and we will get to see some spectacular colors, but I am afraid we are a week or two to early. We will see! Hope you have a great one!

Have a great weekend.

I always looks for lamps at thrift and antique stores they are just sooo expensive in the dept. stores. Sorry you were not able to find what you wanted at a price you wanted. Hang in there it will surface. As for your tray, it's really cute. We do not have a Home Goods. The nearest one to me is in Charleston over 2 hours away! But I sure do love it when I'm down that way!

I was thrilled to be able to visit Home Goods last week..... It's about a 2 1/2 hour drive from the cottage.... I didn't find a darn thing.... I left a very disappointed chickie.

Love your tray though!

Warm blessings,
Spencer

PS... Your kitchen is soooo homey and pretty.

Becca said...

Perfect addition to your already beautiful kitchen !! I was just in there and didn't see that tray (just might've nabbed it if I had). Have a great day, *Becca*

Paula said...

Your new rooster is quite handsome and he looks great perched on top of your refrigerator.

I love your new chalkboard. I'm probably the only blogger around who hasn't made something with chalkboard paint.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

That picture is a nice size for your counter or baker's rack, Kim. I was in Home Goods myself the other evening {great time to go is the dinner hour}. I had to get accessories for a client job and I was having a hard time finding things. It didn't help that there were at least 4 aisles dedicated to Christmas! I did find some things, but not as much as I'd hoped. I don't think you can leave Home Goods without something in your hand!

Andrea said...

The rooster tray looks perfect
for the space above your fridge!
Very nice!

Betsy B. said...

Love the tray! And your kitchen is so pretty. The soup sounds good but I am making chicken stuffed with goat cheese and apple or hubby and me tonight. It is yummy!

Debbie said...

Hi Kim...I love your new rooster tray. I noticed also they are getting pricey with their prices...oh well welcome to the club I guess. I tried leaving a comment the other day, blogger was acting up...I am glad you came over, it reminded me to come back. Hope you are feeling well these days.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Kim, I love your new rooster tray and the rooster topiary. These are perfect in your kitchen.
Hugs, Sherry

Hey Kim!
Oh I adore that rooster tray...and your kitchen looks so welcoming and pretty...I was checking out the other posts and I love the new sew window treatments that you made and that fabric that you put in the dining chairs...it's just perfect together :)
I tell you those things you showed from Craigs List are something... and the prices, OMGosh, amazing. I wonder if the CL in my area has anything good...I've gotta go check it out lol!
Hope you have a great week sweetie...
Big Hugs,
Queenie
