Happy Tuesday 6/2014 - Shopping Results

Welcome to the sixth Happy Tuesday of 2014!   Each week we share something that makes us happy - anything at all!  I hope you'll join the party too.  Look for it down below.

Today, I took the afternoon to go shopping for things to decorate the house.   I didn't really have anything in particular in mind, I just wanted to find some things to help make the house feel more like home.  Here's what I brought home:


The window-pane mirror came from the Goodwill Store.  It's a little banged up, a little dirty, and needs a coat of paint. But for $7, it's going to be a great piece for the entry hall that comes in from the garage in the back of our house.

The monogram "H" is made of plywood.   My plan is to paint it black, and mount it on some pallet wood that I have in the garage, and add it to the same entry hall wall as the mirror, along with some other things I have in mind, to make a "welcome" gallery wall.

The two birds nests came from different home decor stores.  They're both made out of twigs and moss, and will be used to make some springtime vignettes in the house later this spring.

My favorite find of the day is the "running bunny" statue.   He's so cute!   He's made out of metal, and has a rough, almost rusty texture in a dark bronze color.    I think he's going to end up on the mantel in the living room.

There you have it, some of the things that made me smile today.   I'm looking forward to getting things put into their places.


Now, on to our Happy Tuesday link party. What makes YOU happy? What brings a smile, lights up your eyes, makes your heart go pitter-patter? Please join the link party to share your little slice of happy today. I'm really looking forward to visiting! The party starts at 9pm Eastern tonight (Monday)!
