Is There Rehab for an Addiction to Yellow Roses?

On Saturday we went to some thrift stores searching for a nightstand, a lamp, frames and a headboard for our bedroom. I came back with a painting for the living room, a tile for the kitchen, a scarf hanger, a decorative pillow (like I really need more pillows), a book of jokes and a nightstand. At least I got one thing on my list! I think our tiny apartment has had about all the junk it can take! I doubt I'll stop though. It's an addiction:)
This was two dollars! It's so cute and so very true:) I'm in love with it. I still need to find the perfect spot in the kitchen  to hang it.
This is so cool. It will hold 24 scarves easily! I definitely needed this even though I didn't know it. I didn't even know these existed! I found it at Goodwill but it had an Ikea tag so I'm sure you could find these there or at Target!
This was a dollar:) I love it. I decided to replace the colorful pillow I made for our bedroom with this one. I'm going to put the yellow roses blanket in the living room and replace it with a brown and white zebra pattern blanket on our blue bedspread. I think the blues and browns and greens are a more relaxing color palette for the bedroom... Who knows though, it could change:)
I love this nightstand! It was super cheap and it really sturdy. I'm going to sand it and paint it. I'm not sure what color yet though... Maybe a light minty green color? What do you think?
I know, I know. I've gone a little crazy with the yellow rose stuff but I can't help it! I just about died when Matt dug out this painting! It is so gorgeous. It was painted by a local Sacramento artist. I don't know if I love this one or the one I found last weekend more:) Slowly but surely the walls are being covered with flower paintings and birds and everything is getting more and more girlie. Poor Matt:) He's such a good sport!
Hope everyone is having a great Monday!


  1. I love the saying on the kitchen tile. It should be my motto. I really like the idea of using the cool colors of blue and brown in your bedroom, so relaxing. And, I love the end table. I think it will be so shabby chic beautiful when you paint it. Can hardly wait to see it. Also, tomorrow is Dan's birthday. Mona

  2. I LOVE the lines of that nightstand! Awesome...

  3. Love the roses!
