Where’d You Get That?

neutral

Every day I’m asked where I get items that are in my home. And the answer is: EVERYWHERE!

I’m not a store snob, I’m open to finding great stuff anywhere. And now that we live “in the country” (real people who live in the actual country feel free to roll your eyes– anywhere that’s 25 minutes from the door of a Starbucks-less Target is “the country” to me) anyway, now that it takes a million dollars in gas to drive to the nearest store, I find myself shopping online even more than I used to. From clothes, to gifts, to books to rugs-even makeup and hairspray, if I can buy it online, I will.

I’ve had great luck with Joss & Main in the past few years. Partly because I’ve learned to watch the prices (don’t assume everything is the best price you’ll ever see it) partly because I work the system and build up credits, mostly simply by pinning stuff to pinterest a few times per week.

And for the next 72 hours I’m hosting a sale with Joss & Main full of items I have (or would like to have) in my own home.

Joss & Main is one of those flash sale sites, you join by giving your email (you can opt out of the emails if you want though–that’s what I do and just check in when I feel like it) and then you have access to the limited time sales–it’s all home related stuff so it’s super fun for us housey girls.

My sale is not the only sale going on right now, this Rustic Luxe is one of my current favorites and it has great prices for upholstered pieces. Be sure to check out whatever sales speak to your personal style. Go here and join or login to see all the current sales events, and they all have a theme, from Father’s Day Ideas to Outdoor Style even sales just with pillows.

I have two more things to say that you need to read.

 

1. For the Risk Avoiders

You know that thing you see that makes your heart beat faster and you think, oh I LOVE that and I wish I could pull that off in my house but only other people can use things like that in their house and my mother-in-law will think that I’m ridiculous if I put that in my house so I will play it safe and surround myself with the semi-beautiful, average, unremarkable and uninspiring?

Yeah, that?

Stop doing that.

Here are step by step directions on how to pull something off if you need them. Whether that thing that makes your heart pitter-patter is in this sale, is in a garage sale, is something you can make, is something boxed up in your attic, it’s time to stop thinking you can’t be who you are and embrace what you love.

I know women whose husbands are telling them to please, feel free to spend a little money and make this house a home already and fear is gripping them as if choosing a lamp is a life or death decision. Life is too short and decorating is supposed to be fun. Enjoy it. Take a risk. Buy the lamp and then email me and tell me how you feel.

 2. For the Cash Challenged

There have been times in my life that I’ve had more time than money. Times that I needed to DIY my way to pretty.  And if you are in a season of that right now, I hope that you don’t see this sale as something you cannot be a part of but as fun inspiration for your next project!

Joss & Main may read this and delete my sale right now (however, they are pretty awesome because I said this same thing at my last sale and they were totally fine with it) but I have to say this, none of these items, as beautiful and charming and lovely as they might be, are worth putting on a credit card if you can’t pay it off immediately. As much as I want you to love your home and as much as I don’t want Joss & Main to think my sale failed, I don’t want anyone to feel any pressure to spend money you don’t have. It’s never worth it, especially not for furniture.

It’s a process, beauty takes time.

Enjoy the process.

Love the home you’re with.

Now let’s go shopping together!

 Sale ends in 7 days

Joss & Main offers a $15 referral credit for anyone {you too!} who refers someone to their site when that someone makes their first purchase.  They also compensate all of their curators with a small percentage of the sales.

PS, if you are logged in as a member as Joss & Main and pin directly from their site using their Pin it button, if someone makes a first purchase from clicking from your pin, you get a $15 referral credit, this? is a no-brainer, start pinning with intention now!

Rescued Crystals. To the Rescue, Again

Whenever we move (which has been often) I look forward to hearing from the house on what it wants to be. I’m usually surprised. I don’t really hear voices. But each house speaks… Pin It

A Nesting Place Sale at Joss & Main

Every now and then I’ll partner with one of my favorite online shopping destinations: Joss & Main. I found some of my favorite items from them. I don’t shop blindly and assume that everything they offer is the lowest price available–I’ve yet to find that perfect  store in existence. But it’s been a fun place […]

I’m embarrassed to tell you this. I finally really mopped our floors yesterday. Actually when I say “floors” I mean kitchen, and when I say “kitchen” I mean just the half where our table is. I swept the entire kitchen with a new broom, twice. Remember how I told you what I’ve been working on […]

The Bonus Room, For Now

I had to throw this picture at the top, I can’t stand the mess that is every other picture in this post…. I’m slowly moving forward on the bonus room/family room/homeschool room/man room that is the upstairs room over the garage. We’ve never really finished it. It’s always been a room with blankets and popcorn […]

Book Page Pendant Light

Many of you have asked about the book page light so I wanted to give you some closeups and photos of it without the book pages. I ordered this pendant lamp last year from Joss & Main because I’ve learned that if I have a great hanging light in the room, I don’t need to […]

Sometimes when I’m not sure what I want to go where, I’ll grab my camera and snap a few pics to see what I really like best. And sometimes I make the opposite decision once I realize I don’t even have my coffee table back in place after taking out the Christmas tree. Wondering about the […]
