Some purchases

 I took advantage of some Labor Day sales.  Wanna see what I got?  First, I bought the yellow rosette pillow at Target.  I've admired this pillow for awhile and have seen it on a lot of blogs.  It was 50% off, so I got it for $12.  You can never have too many throw pillows, right?  Especially if you have a super-ugly couch that needs to be hidden under a plethora of pillows.

Now that the doors are painted black in my dining area, I thought the room could use a little more sprucing up.  It didn't have much in the way of accessories.  So, I purchased two different sets of sunburst mirrors.  First up, is this pair from Hobby Lobby, snagged for 50% off.
I also got this set from Target.

I couldn't decide which pair I liked better, but the winner is....

I also got a new lamp from Target.  I needed something tall on this low console.  I'm not sure if I love it, but it was on clearance for only $7.00.  How could I pass that deal up?  What do you think about mixing metals?  I have the gold-framed mirror and now the brushed-silver lamp.  I'm fine with it.

And there you have it!

Wait a minute, is that the mirror that you've had? I love it! What bargains you got too - that's awesome. I've always loved that Dwell pillow too - and what a steal! The sunbursts that you kept were my favorite too, good choice. And I love the lamp - that area looks really great!!! Nice work!


Fabulous! I love your thrifty finds...isn't Target the best for fun pillows? I just picked up two there for $9.99 each! And I think the sunburst mirrors you chose to keep are spectacular!

The yellow rosette pillow makes me smile too. Good for you getting it for half off! Wish I had!
