Boho Chic Bargains!

For some budget FUN, your wallet wants to play a little game of 'THIS not THAT' Are you ready? (humor me bargain seekers.....)

THIS
Hello Adorable Anthropologie-esque pillows at HomeGoods.... You thrill me! You make me want to do a boho chic nursery redo or a bonus room spruce up with bright springy colors that make me giddy. THIS is a great find. But....you had no 'K'. I really wanted a K. If anyone sees these darling pillows at your HomeGoods, TJMaxx or Marshalls, will you buy me a K? I'll pay you and for the shipping. Um, I'm not kidding. I want one. Or two. Yeah, two. =)


NOT THAT
THAT pillow from Anthropologie itself, would give the same look. But at $148, it just doesn't give me the same thrill. Some of us need to buy diapers, and food. Ha. Pretty darn cute though, I love me a bolster pillow. Something about the shape. And how it fits perfectly in a chair but still gives plenty of room to sit IN the chair. Yes, these are the things that go through my crazy head.
THIS
And in the same shopping trip, I find THIS ikat bag. Isn't it yummy? Doesn't it make you want to wear fun sunglasses and book a flight to the Caribbean? Can't you just picture filling it with your favorite mags, the book you are reading (um, I used to read a lot 'before' I had a baby), and some coconutty sunscreen? Yeah, me too. And at $24.99 (TJMaxx), there's still money left over for a new swimsuit!

NOT THAT
I mean, don't get me wrong....THAT bag is too cute! The color combo is one of my faves, and the rope detail is still just as cool as on the last bag. The difference? You might be able to get a plane ticket to that imaginary vacation we just planned for the same price. $298. Boo!

THE FYI:
-Cute is cute. The price tag will NEVER determine that. Nor will the price tag.
-Can I get an amen?

K says......HAPPY THURSDAY!
