It's all good at Homegoods

Are these not the perfect addition to my black and white dining room?  i had, repeat, had to have them them.  Not only would they work year round, but how bout with a pumpkin on them for Halloween?  They've actually inspired a new path for my Halloween decorating that you'll have to wait and see.  I hope it works out as nicely as I'm envisioning, especially since i already bought the goodies. 

Because it looks like something we could diy, i wanted to tell you that the base was already glossy black, and the white plate was attached.  All i did was take a cheese dome lid and cross my fingers that it would fit over the large and in charge pine cone! 


Ok, so i bought both of them.  One was priced at 5.00, and one was priced at 7.00.  At the register i inquired about this strange discrepancy, and after huddling and whispering and being satisfied i didn't stick the lower price sticker on myself (well, i never!) they let me buy them both at 5.00.  Woot!  Good thing i scored that second cheese dome for free!  My friend made the center arrangement for my birthday a few years back.  Ain't it cute?

Oh, and that blurry thing in the right corner?



Could not get a shot in once she got up there. Love that she's on the table runner, like she's the next logical step in dining room decorating!


How dramatic she looks!  I was going to say something like, what an inexpensive tabletop display, but then if you count the adoption fee for the cat, it's really not.  Seriously, i crack myself up!

"Large and in charge"...I like that! It was so nice to make sure your decor matches the cat. (-; My dog matches my kitchen!

You cat is a big cheeseball! but dont' try to put it under the glass dome thingy! Nice find and great prices. That just makes the entire end result so much better! Have a great day!

Oh, I love the centerpieces! They're so perfect for fall...and they're not tacky, which is a super hard, thrifty thing to pull off!

Great job!

I love the HomeGoods Bargain! Can't wait to see what your plans are. I hope they involve your sweet feline friend! Tell me how you link up to/find all of those link parties. I'm relatively new to blogging and have the feeling I'm missing out on a lot of bloggy goodness. I'm slowly learning but feel so newbie! (And even if you don't feel like sharing I will still come back and visit you! No worries! Thanks, jules www.bles-id.blogspot

I'm lovin' your black and white cloches! Not only great for Halloween but very nice for Christmas too!

Gail @ Faithfulness Farm said...

I was very tickled by this post...I too crack myself up at times, lol. We recently vacationed in another state and I found a Home Goods store and fell in LOVE!! Your beauties were a must have for sure.

Blessings!

Your silver pinecone and acorn are so pretty and to use them under cloches is genius. They look perfect. Your table vignette is wonderful. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

Sassy Sites! said...

Caroline @ The Feminist Housewife said...

I love it! And the furry decor cracked me up...my cat won't let me take any photos without her being in it. She has this sixth sense of "oh, you want a photo for your blog...well then, I MUST be in it." Hmmm...

I'm loving your site! I'm your newest follower!

Annie Rose said...

I love your centerpiece! You cat just is too funny. I love how she acts like she just belongs there! lol

Barbara said...

Those really are perfect, especially for a black and white dining room. Our Home Goods is about as far away as you could possibly be from my home and still be in the same city. Sometimes I think that is a good thing. Right now, I think it is a bad thing! Lovely!

Jenny @ Embellishing Life said...

cute. I do love Home Goods! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Michelle said...

Love it! And love the cat as the next logical step--so funny to me b/c that's where my cat hangs out too:)
