Pretty Little Thingies

Well I have so much stuff now that I was running out of room for it all so I had to buy some kind of shelving thing to hold some of it. So for the first time I went to a Homegoods store. I have been to a T.J. Maxx/Homegoods, but never just the Homegoods one and it was awesome! I was like this is my second home! LOL So I found a great little metal ladder style shelving unit that is awesome! I also got a little metal stand for my birdcage and a teapot! My first one! So here it is, it’s painted grey and it’s about as tall as I am 5’4 LOL. Sorry I didn’t take a picture before I covered it with stuff LOL.

This is the stand for the birdcage :) I should have taken a picture of the top which looks like a lattice weave. It is the perfect size for the birdcage. I was in a dilemma because I couldn’t hang the cage and I didn’t like it on my end table but I got an epiphany while shopping at Homegoods and came up with this LOL.

I don’t know if I ever showed you guys this before. I may have…This little metal bird dome and stand came from Marshall’s :) Yay. Well anyway here it is again, but new and improved because I got some of these cream and green speckled eggs and I think they look pretty good in there.

Here’s the teapot I didn’t even unwrap it yet LOL. I bought it because I loved the little bird on top. Ever since I have been looking at everyone else’s blog and all the birds I have really gotten into them. This teapot is a pretty cream color.

And I got this cool metal dome and stand thing. It’s the same color as the shelf. I put the nest from Pier 1 in it. I also got a smaller one just like it but I don’t know what to put it in so I haven’t set it out yet. Any ideas?

Well I have lots more to share with you but I’ll do it next time. All the best everyone!

Wow! You've been busy Allison :). Good finds. I just love TJ Maxx but have only been to one Homegoods. I have to admit it was a little intimidating due to it's size :0!
I hope you have a great evening!

Oh my gosh, I love Home Goods! Great purchase! I got a bird cage at Home Goods that is almost identical to your Marshalls dome with the little black bird! I just love all the things you're collecting... We definitely share the same style!... Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage
