New Pillow Covers

The H&M Home Store was a lot of fun!  So glad you enjoyed the tour.  Today I'm back to share a few of my purchases with you.

I walked in looking for new pillows for my living room sofa.  

Immediately, these blue, velvet pillow covers caught my eye.  

The color is displaying different in this picture.

This picture shows their true color!

I purchased the mustard-colored geometric covers from H&M too.  I really liked the design.  The gray scalloped pillow is from West Elm.

I don't know about you, but I have a thing for tea towels.  $1 each!  They were practically free!

I like to display them in the kitchen or hang them over the oven door.

White with black stripes is such a classic design.

I wasn't sure what this was or how to use it?  So I asked a store associate and was told, it's a sponge!  Just need to let it soak in soapy-warm water and it'll be great for wiping spills.
Okay, why not!  It was cheap too.

I also grabbed some paper napkins.

I like to keep decorative napkins on hand.

They're a fun addition to my breakfast table setting.

I purchased a table runner for my dining room, but I can't seem to find it.  It was simple and gray.  I was really looking forward to using it.

What I enjoyed most about H&M is that everything was really inexpensive.  My purchases were cheap, so I didn't feel bad packing my suitcase with things I really didn't need!

N.Y.C. and H&M Home

Hello friends, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.  I spent the holidays visiting with family and friends in New Jersey.  It was an enjoyable trip with my daughter.

While visiting N.J. we took the train to N.Y.C.  I made a promise to my daughter for her 18th birthday we could explore New York.  My sister, niece and cousin tagged along making the entire experience even more memorable!

We visited on December 26th, so all the Christmas decorations were still up.  The streets were crowded, but there was so much to see.  N.Y.C. is seriously so beautiful at Christmas time. 

My niece!

My cousin!

My daughter!

My sister!

I've been admiring H&M's home furnishings for months, online.  I was so excited to visit their flagship store.  The entire fourth floor is dedicated to their home collection.  Lots of beautiful home decor ideas.  It's easy to stay within budget with their affordable prices.


Thank you N.Y.C. for such a great time!
