Affordable finds

Open any design magazine or browse thorough almost any design blog and you will most likely see some version of the starburst mirror.  I have always been a fan of the starburst mirror. And when I found this beauty with  a convex mirror a few months ago at Homegoods for only $30 I couldn't pass it up. So, I followed the advice of many: "If you love it you will find a place for it".

The mirror is patiently sitting in my  home office on the floor underneath my desk. The installation will be a bit tricky because it will not sit flush with the wall.  The mirror will actually be layered over the corners of four pictures already hanging on the wall.

I went to Homegoods today and here are a few other things that caught my eye.  Unfortunately, none of them made their way home with me. But it was fun shopping. The hunt is always exciting!

What are your favorite affordable finds from Homegoods? Do any of these catch your eye?


A great desk at a great price (only $199).  I'm loving the hardware.

Silver and horn frame and tray.

I really was tempted to buy the genuine white onyx canister.   I love the shape of the black and silver covered dish but the crooked finial was a deal breaker for me.

I would love to see this side table painted a high gloss black.  There's that onyx canister again!

A trio of gorgeous lamps.

Another great pair of lamps.

Loooove the silver and horn, and will be watching for them at my local HomeGoods. Favorites that I bought from HomeGoods: a pair of unusual looking rattan lamps that still look interesting next to the rattan headboard in my bedroom, and the trio of red faux coral scupltures mounted on black pedestals that I keep in my office.
Happy Hunting!

We picked up Rudolph, a blue sparkling reindeer about 5' tall from Home Goods. He looked perfect in our dining room!
