Ruffle Addiction

Ok, so this little thing I am having with ruffles, it might be more than just the shower curtain.  I thought ruffles were “too girly” for my taste, but either my taste changed just a smidge or these things are growing on me.  Don’t get me wrong, I would still probably pair them with something black or steel, but I do in fact love me some ruffles.  Here is what I have been craving lately:

These ruffle pillows struck me this morning as I was blog browsing.  Aren’t they so “sweet meets manly”?

These sandals from Target are calling my name as well. 

Then there is this wedding dress!  What can I say?  This is what I have been searching for!  Actually, the entire wedding was gorgeous and exactly what we had planned (until deciding to go away!) so check out the link to Grey Likes Weddings to see the entire thing!

So, what do you think?  The ruffles are totally funky, right?  Thought so.

My First Ikea Visit- EVER!

May 19, 2009 at 7:54 am (Home Changes and Additions, Tid Bits) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

Yes, its true.  I’m a small town girl, never been to Ikea.  We took a little road trip to Chicago this weekend with some friends to visit the monstrous store- WOW.  Love it.  That’s all you can really say.  Tony even enjoyed this shopping trip- was it the beer that you can drink while there?? 🙂  We didn’t come home with too many exciting things this time, but we got what we went for- a new duvet cover!  We also got a few pillows to replace the raggedy ones in the living room, and a yummy smelling candle.  All on the cheap!  I wish we lived closer because we will definitely be making the trip back when we need something!

The new duvet cover- looks like we need a bed-skirt too! – and the grey blanket is also from Ikea.

The big black and white pillow is actually a cover, which we stuffed with three of the old dilapidated pillows, and the black one is also new.  We think they tie in the black curtains a bit better.

A cute little delicious candle- for $2.50 you can’t go wrong!

Also- the counter-tops are half in and looking great.  They are planned to be done tonight!! Yay!
