How I Spent My $50.00 HomeGoods Gift Card

I am linking this post to:


Last Monday I won the $50.00 HomeGoods gift card given away at Between Naps On The Porch hosted by Susan. I was very surprised and truly thankful. I would like to share with everyone how I put my gift card to good use.

Every Thursday morning, you can find me at HomeGoods drooling over their beautiful items and dreaming about what I would do with them. I am in the process of redoing my guest room and there is one particular item that I drool over more than others.

Last Wednesday I was shocked and extremely thrilled to have received my certificate in the mail on that day(Thank you Susan). Just in time for my Thursday morning trip to HomeGoods.

Thursday morning I was off as usual thinking that with my luck it would be gone. But it wasn't!
I grabbed it, bragged about my new fortune, whipped out my $50.00 gift card, paid for the item, and was out the door.

Here is what I bought.

This is the "before".




And this is the "after"





What do you think?
I am putting this in my guest room that I am currently working on. Dreams do come true!!
Thank you HomeGoods and thank you Between Naps On The Porch.

What a lovely lamp! That's just my kind of style, too. Home Goods is the BEST place for lamps..and many other items, of course! I'm a follower of both Designs by Gollum and BNOTP and I found you mentioned at the end of Gollum's newsletter this evening!
