Houses, houses everywhere...

A quick visit to Target (they are never quick) yesterday to get an extra pillow for our bed (new bedding came yesterday... Pottery Barn is speedy) and I had a cart overflowing with things I knew I couldn't live without. My favorite treasure is this red and green wooden house. It's obviously an Advent Calender as each of the little doors open to yield a small gift for that day. I have a month to figure out what I'll be putting inside the doors. The house is sitting on my 'unmade' bed in front of a new sham that has HOUSES on it. Also, I bought sheets the color of the darkest green in the fabric. When it was all put together last night the room looked good. The light blue carpet now has red rugs on it and it's fine.



For the moment the house is perched on top of a bookshelf in the bedroom. Soon to be moved to my husband's night table or dresser and filled with little surprises.


I feel a house collection starting!

Have a fun-filled day!!

I'm off to the dermatologist to see what the itchy bumps are on my leg.
But alas... it's right near the shop that carries Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett fabric...hee,hee.

Love, Joni

That bedding is gorgeous Joni - I'm so glad you persuaded yourself to get it! The little advent house is lovely - and who is that cute doll perching next to it? Hope you had fun with Amy Butler et al! Lucy x

Wow. . .only you can turn a trip to the dermatologist into a shopping trip, too!

That's my kind of appointment!!!

That house is so cute! A house collection would be great! My dermatologist has no Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett next door. I hope you bought some beauties of fabrics!

I call Target the Hundred Dollar Store, I never get out of that place for under a hundred bucks, it's inexplicable!

Hey...after your itchy excursion one must simply reward themselves with a fun excursion! Right?! I just love that advent calendar "house" of all things! Fantastic! ....remind me to take a photo of the children's calendar their Grandma made them come December. Take care my friend.

I'm so glad you got the bedding as it's awsome and that cute little house looks great with it.

Best of luck at the dermatologist and I'm so very sorry (uh huh!) that shopping is nearby. But one must have some solace when seeking medical attention so I think shopping would help.
