So, I was sick this week.  Like, crazy sick.  After it all went down (or came up for that matter), I had a few days of recovery ahead.  I was really weak and couldn't really do anything, so I sat on the couch and surfed the internets more than I ever do.  I came across some fun finds and thought I would share!

1.  I am lovin this striped purse from Target.  In person it is much more of a muted yellow.  I've never had a yellow purse, and that's a pretty good reason to get it, right?  All who know me right now are thinking, "Yeah right cheap skate, you won't cough up the money and you know it."  They're probably right.  But I do love it!

2.  I also saw this navy tank in Target recently and thought it would be super cute layered underneath a cute cardigan.  I'm a little ruffle obsessed these days.

3.  What is it about melamine that I just adore?  I especially have a weakness for plates.  Check out these and these and these.

4.  I spotted these coasters awhile back and fell hard.  But I love them too much to actually use for their purpose.  I would frame them in 3 separate vertical frames.  Then I would hang them in my kitchen.  Yep.

5.  Speaking of kitchen stuff, I want to drink out of these cutie pie cups, don't you?

6.  I've been to Payless a few times recently, and I always gravitate toward these green shoes (they are a darker green in person).  They are amazing, but there is no way I could spend more than ten minutes wearing those babies. Not with my bunion.  In case you were wondering, yes, I'm 80.

7.  A few years ago I found an awesome wooden chair at Goodwill, and it's still one of my favorite things in my house.  It only had a plywood seat, but I found a plain red cushion at Pier1 that fit it perfectly.  I saw this chair cushion on their website and thought it would be a fun change up some day.  My other one is just regular material, and I like that this one is indoor/outdoor.  Hopefully that means I could clean kid gunk off of it a little more easily.  

8.  I was just browsing West Elm and found myself lovin these bowls.  I would love to have a yellow and gray one as little catchalls for our new bedroom.  I think even loose change and pocket lint would look good in these beauties.

9.  I was looking through some of my favorites on Etsy and  came across a great shop I haven't visited in  awhile.  I really love this number pillow (and lots of other things in their shop!) and thought it would be fun to DIY this and use "23" for our anniversary.  I'm all about meaningful decor these days.

10.  I haven't seen this in person, but online I adore this crochet trim dress in jurassic green.  I would wear it with some sort of cardigan of course, because I'm not a bare arm girl.  I need to check out the length and fit in person, but I do have a gift card burning a hole in my pocket!  

Have a great weekend!
