Every year around this time, after the Christmas trees and decor have been put away, I get in the mood to declutter.
So I decided to clear out the wall where the fireplace and TV are.
Wish I could cover that cord. But you aren’t supposed to have anything close to the fireplace for obvious reasons.
The silver galvanized tub is on the other wall. I took some of the plants and put them in the bedroom and put the red tub back outside where I store it.
Where it was by the TV I was knocking the long fronds off the plant when I’d walk to the hallway. After breaking a couple of those I decided to move it.
Ivy is quite curious about the cool air humidifier. I just hope she doesn’t knock it over. She tries to be careful when she’s snooping.
Here’s Charlie on the couch waiting for me to sit down in the recliner. The reason I have the recliner so close to the couch is so he can walk over to it.
As you know he has steps up to the couch, so then he walks across and steps over to the chair. Just trying to make things easier for him and not focus entirely on how things look.
Now for the great buy I happened across Friday at Hobby Lobby. I was in there to buy oilcloth to put under the humidifier to protect the furniture. Oilcloth is at the very end of the store. And one of the last rows before you get to fabric is the lamp row.
As I walked past, little yellow price tags were like a beacon to me. I know that means clearance. So I walked on over there to check it out.
Many of the lamps were marked way down. The first ones I saw were in the boho style. Better yet, they had narrow shades. The lamps in my bedroom had a huge lamp shade and took up a lot of room.
So two of those went right into my basket. I got them (lamp, lamp shade and even the bulb) for $19.99 each. Original price $69.99 each.
I left the price tags on to show you.
I also got a black hanging pendant lamp, but I haven’t figured out where to hang it yet so it’s stored in the closet at the moment. It was $69.99 and I got it for $17.49.
I also got this lamp, which is kind of unusual but I love it next to the living room chair.
I got it for $12.49. Original price was $49.99. I just couldn’t pass that deal up!
I gave the two bedroom lamps to Irvina, my next door neighbor. She happened to only have one lamp and a floor lamp that no longer works, so she could sure use them.
I didn’t have anymore room to store them. My closets are full!
I know the air purifier and humidifier isn’t exactly stylish, but they’re part of our lives now. So they’re in the photos.
I was reading on the The Everygirl site what will continue to be popular in 2020 and the foreseeable future. Not that any of us necessarily follow trends, but it’s an interesting read.
