Have you seen the new Pottery Barn catalog? Yum. I love getting a new one just for some inspiration. PB is a great source for ideas that you can duplicate on a much cheaper scale or you can wait for a sale. I have a lot of Pottery Barn pillow covers and bed linens, but they were all bought on sale or off ebay. Ebay is another great place to find discounted PB items.
When I received the new catalog I was flipping through it and noticed they are selling this scrumptious chandelier that I could have used in the sitting room, but that's o.k. I like the one I got.
I would have had to pay shipping for this one though. The shipping on the one I got was free.
I love this chandy though. O.k. that is off subject, here.
Pottery Barn is selling these book bundles for the price of $39 which is absurd! Come on people. Just go to the thrift store and buy some books for fifty cents to a dollar apiece rip the covers off, buy some twine at the craft store or Walmart and tie it around them.
Stick them in a wooden bowl and voila. I did this a couple of months ago and now PB is selling their little bundles and making a whopping profit. Such an easy project for around $5.
The PB book bundles are catalog/internet only so shipping fees apply, too.

The prices on these found demijohns are a bit over priced, too at $99 to $279. Go to a flea market or antique barn and see if you can find them at a better price. Also check out ebay for these, too. I know some cost more than others. I got my largest one at an antique place in Asheville, NC for $65. Just hunt around if you want these.
The large one on the left was just $65. I only paid $10 for the smaller one.
and catalog/internet only. That means shipping, too.
So look around and see if you can't find the look for less. Enjoy the thrill of the hunt and use your hard earned money for things like groceries and the bills.
Thanks for all the sweet comments regarding my new header.
Enjoy your weekend! We are under a winter storm watch for Sunday to Tuesday. Yay!
I thought I was in the south?
