Fireplace Mantel Updates

Remember back in the beginning of March when I made my new mantel for my fireplace but wasn't sure about the styling? Well I've made some changes to it since then and it's currently looking like this:

The succulents are fake ones from Target but they looked real so I picked them up since all three were only $9 and some change.

The Batman and Robin bobbleheads were also found Target (in the Easter section) and although they're not something you'd typically find on a mantel in a shelter magazine, I think they're cute and add a little bit of personality to the room :)

Dining Room Built-Ins

About two weeks ago I posted an Inspired By: post that was all about styling and since then I've been playing around with my collection of white ceramics that I have displayed on the built-in shelves in my dining room.

Not only did I strike gold over the weekend but my mom also surprised me with the Josephine Desk from World Market as an early birthday present!

I remember falling in love with the desk when Joi posted about it a couple of months ago and mentioned to my mom how beautiful it was but since I had a desk already (a cheap one from IKEA), I didn't see the need to replace it ... until this weekend :)

HomeGoods Gold

Remember back in December how I said I had found the greatest HomeGoods find ever? Well I take that back. While those tables are still great, my new lamps are even greater :)

Over the weekend I scored two of these lamps for ... wait for it ... $50 EACH!!! They're pretty much an identical match to the Weston table lamp from Z Gallerie except for the fact that I got both of my lamps from HomeGoods for HALF of the price of one of Z Gallerie's Weston lamps.

They're so perfect, I can't get over the fact that they're mine!
