little updates {dining room}

While I was at my home away from home aka World Market
 last week picking up our new furniture for the breakfast area
I picked up a beautiful new table cloth that I thought would work
well in our dining room...
It reminded me of the haint blue paint color on the ceiling
{you can barely see it in the picture above.}
Two things bothered me...
it didn't really match the blues in the suzanni fabric on the chairs
and the big problem for me...
I noticed the price tag on the packaging as I took it out.
$59.99
Ouch.
For a tablecloth?
Call me crazy.
I took it back.

Look at what I found at Target.
Maybe you can't tell from the picture but
in person it is the exact blue I wanted.
And it was only $11.
Holla!
{and yes I will be ironing it...just wanted to see if I liked it first}


They have their spring items at WM now
and I grabbed some stuff like the nests and the grape hyacinth...


and from Hobby Lobby
{and no I'm not always shopping...my kids have school projects due
so we had lots of craft items to buy.
ok, and maybe I did throw some extra stuff in the basket
when my DH wasn't looking.}
I snared these little ceramic urns for $7.99
and the moss balls for $3.99.
You know how I feel about topiaries.


Nearly done here...thinking about making a runner for the table
with one of the remnants I have from the chair fabrics.
Think its just big enough.
Trying to wrap up all the projects on my list...
my youngest starts kinder in the fall and me thinks I'll go back to work.
For a paycheck I mean...
'cause I don't know about you but being a mom is
the most difficult {but rewarding} job I've ever had.
{and I used to work with stuff that could explode and eat your skin off}.
Anybody hiring?
