Look What I found!

I know everyone probably already has one but I didn't and I wanted one, look at the trophy cup I found, you will never guess where I found it, Homegoods and it was on clearance for $16.00, I have seen alot of bloggers displaying them and I couldn't find any until yesterday, I think it looks vintage too. Sorry about the dark pic again, we have overcast weather here again so it's hard to get good lighting.

I have also seen this idea around and thought it was so cute, I was in a store the other day and the lady was giving old books away so I took some to try this out, I removed the old covers to reaveal the binding, tied a ribbon on and added the flower on top that's it! I hope everyone has a great week, I still haven't used my paint sprayer, I did test it on a piece of wood but it has been so windy here so I wanted to wait for a good day , it seems like it is going to work out really good, no sputtering paint out and it made a really even coat onto the wood (;

I adore the trophy cup!! The roses look so perfect in it. There is just something about pink and silver! The books look so cute, I have been thinking of doing that too!

How pretty to put roses in the trophy and on top of the books. You have such good taste. It really shows in your home.

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Wow! What a deal. I LOVE HomeGoods. You can always find a treasure, or more than one, when you go there. I love plates, so I always find some beauties there. Sure love your blog. Your kitchen is so cute.

Jeanne said...

Well, I don't have a trophy cup and I can't believe I missed that one at my Homegoods. I may have to sneak over there tomorrow. I haven't seen in on the reg. priced shelves when I've been there lately, so chances are finding one on the clearance are probably not very good. I love how you have the pink roses in it. So beautiful!

Susan S. said...

Cool post...but now I am the ONLY one who doesn't have a tropy cup. Watch out Homegood's....I feel a vist coming on. Happy Fall Ya'll from Houston, TX

Hi again Kelly,
Thanks so much for coming by today! I am so loving all my bloggy friends! Yep, I would totally take your son to the Dr. -that is exactly what happened to my Kenz...I just had no idea strep would cause such horrible flu-like symptoms! I have never seen her that sick! Poor thing, I'm so glad that part is over. Anyway, good luck w/ your son..if it is strep at least they can treat it & he'll get better. :)

Hey Kelly, I love the trophy cup and I am loving old books lately too. My daughter and I shopped at HG today on the way home from my parents. They didn't have a trophy cup but we did manage to do some damage.


June said...

Hi Kelly,
I don't have one either...now I'm probably the last one left in blogland without one, and no Home Goods in sight.lol I have been looking for one though because I think they make the neatest vases.
I love the books done that way too. It makes such a beautiful vignette in your already gorgeous cottage.

Joy said...

I love the book idea. We should use that at the library :)
Good deal on the trophy cup too.

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

I love the trophy cup! and the books!!! I don't have a trophy cup but I do have books tied like that! Now I need a trophy cup! haha!

Karen Valentine said...

Hi Kelly! Don't you just love Home Goods, Marshalls and TJMaxx!!! It's always so fun to find objects of desire. I love what you did with your books. I have them all over in little ribbon wrapped clusters but I never though about the flower. I just bought one at Anthropologie that I couldn't resist. I was going to put it on a pillow but I love it on the books too!

Love that trophy, Kelly! I had no idea Home Goods carried anything like that...what a wonderful display item, and it can hold an assortment of things. The books wrapped with ribbons is so much more romantic for our shabby chic homes! Great idea. Your home is sooooo gorgeous...no matter what you do, it will be fantastic!

God bless,

Ginger said...

I love home goods.My husbands glad there's not one to close. I went to google images to look for pictures of different looking kitchen island and there was a picture of yours ( I guess it's your old kitchen island) I was going to do a post on ideas for a kitchen island. Would you mind if I used this picture?

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Hi Kelly! Oh, I love the books done like that! Can you just send that painting to my home, too. :) I love it!!

Cute, cute - everything is just so cute!!!!

Hi Kelly,
What a cute vignette. See, now I want a trophy too! ;-) Looks so pretty with the roses and the books are such a simple decorating idea, but how beautiful they look with the ribbon and flower. I love visiting your blog...always such beautiful ideas...Don't know if I've told you before but I think your home is absolutely beautiful. You have a wonderful eye for decorating. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs and Kisses,

What did we all do before Home Goods came into our lives? I for one had more money in my purse before they came to town but my home looks so lovely now. Love the trophy cup!

Miss Gracie's House said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! Great find, BTW...I haven't seen anything like that at Homegoods before.

Lori Katies Rose Cottage said...

I love your books stack with roses and big fat ribbon ~ also the trophy cup with roses is just beautiful too !

Cynthia K. said...

Hi there! Okay, now I'm craving a loving cup too...those are the most gorgeous huge and fluffy roses I've seen! Lovely.

I really like your kitchen that is in the header - the shape of it is so neat - almost like stepping into an oval. I enjoyed my visit so well that I signed up as a follower...
