New Additions Under $30

I am so, so happy for Friday!  We have a busy day planned, some contractors coming to the house early for a simple mirror project that I can’t wait to show you next week!   And since I like to keep y’all in the loop when I find cute things for the home for not a lot of money, here are some of my favorites lately:

First up are these quatrefoil reversible handtowels from TJ Maxx.  I bought the bath towels too, but they weren’t very absorbent, so they’re back in the laundry pile.  The bath towels were $8.

These West Elm chevron accessories are holding my toothbrush/paste and contact case.   The tumbler was $8 and the little tray was $6.  I almost got these instead.

This white lacquer tray from the Container Store was $10.  Although I really don’t like to keep beauty products on the bathroom counter, it’s convenient to have a few daily essentials close at hand.

Next up – James’ bathroom.  I just picked up this fun, green soap dispenser from Crate & Barrel for $7.  It comes in other colors too.

(couldn’t resist adding this shot that captured James’ reflection in the mirror!)

Also in James’ bathroom is this wooden crate I found at Michaels for around $10-15.  It’s not new, but I love it for containing all of his bath stuff.

And in his nursery, my “You Are My Sunshine” print from Pretty Smitten ($18) has finally been hung.  I had a hard time finding a simple, shiny silver frame, but lucked out at Wal-Mart and found this one for $10!

Speaking of Wal-Mart, these faux green apples were only $1 each!

But check out this fun elephant that was $15 at Homegoods!  How cheery!  It will probably live on the white dresser in the future.

And finally, Z Gallerie has these awesome round crocodile trays for $30.  They also come in lime, aqua, silver and white.

Happy, happy weekend to you my friends!

  6. Thanks for sharing your latest finds! Love the towels and crocodile tray! I need to get to Walmart and buy some of those green apples! I keep my apples in the fridge because I like to eat them chilled, but I also like to display them in my pretty bowl on the counter. I'm always torn-- chilled apples or pretty display. Thanks for helping me solve my apple problem. Haha! :)

  9. Thanks for sharing your awesome finds! I had a similar orange tray I bought a few years earlier from ZGallerie in the same shade and same faux crocodile motif but it's not round, it's a square! Great minds think alike?

    Anyway, I am just wondering where did you get the fabulous green geometric table runner? It will be a perfect fit for my dining table! Thanks.

  42. So many great finds, so little time...and funds!!! (c: I'm wishing my HomeGoods had that darling elephant, he is adorable! And that crocodile tray is *begging* to come live with me...(c: Happy Weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh, my word, have got to get by TJ Maxx and see if ours have any of those fantastic towels!!! Love, love!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love all the cool stuff. I'm guessing you like "orange" & so do I. The tray is great. The artwork will look great on that wall -- good that you can move the thermostat. I don't understand why builders & contractors position things the way they do sometimes. They should always have women making the final decisions. LOL!!!

    That is really cool that you are getting together with some local bloggers. I'm hoping to do the same thing when we move to the Phoenix area. I'm meeting more & more from that area all the time here in blogland.

  47. Bonnie- the TJ Maxx was on West Grey.

    Let's Take a Coffee Break- the hourglass is from Pottery Barn.

    Anon- haven't tried out the towels yet after washing so don't know how absorbent they are now.

    Tracylyon- the nightstand is a hand-me-down, don't know where from??
