Count Your Blessings

Remember how I said I wanted to get something on the wall above the baskets in my laundry room? Well, I stumbled upon just the thing today...


There, that's better, don't ya think?

I know it is sort of hard to see in the pics. (It's not the best place to take pics...the closet is at the top of the stairs, so I have to stand in the staircase to take a pic, which means it's awkward and there's bad lighting.) In person, it is much more noticeable. And while I would have liked to find something bigger that spanned more space, I found this vinyl (by Lot 26 studio) at Marshals. The location is moving, so what was left (which wasn't much) was 40% off of the already clearance price. So I scored this vinyl, which is normally around $20, for less than $2! Can't beat that.

I had originally planned to put something there that said "Laundry" or something along those lines. ButI like the  reminder to "Count your Blessings". Sure I could grumble about having to do load after load of laundry. But instead, I will try to remember that I am lucky to have loved ones to do laundry for...and that I have the convenience of a washer and dryer to do it in!

I also scored these prints:
Originally $70, down to $39.99 with 40% off. So I got them for $24 each! I've been searching and searching for new prints to go over our sofa in the living room. I had hoped to find something with less red and orange and more green, but in looking, and looking, and looking I haven't come up with anything that I love. I think these will look nice with the right pillows and accessories. Hope to test them out in the next few days. What do you think?
