do y'all subscribe to those "members-only" sale websites? 
gilt, hautelook, one kings lane, the mini social?
there are many more and you can find great deals on designer clothing, shoes, accessories, and housewares. i rarely buy, but often browse. it can be a little scary because most items are either final sale or only returnable for credit. but recently i purchased two items for our home that i'm so pleased with.

this side table makes me really happy. (my brother-in-law says that "things should never control feelings"...or something like that. but this side table is my exception to his rule.) i just love the shine and texture and fun that it brings to our living room. yes, fun. we had a hilarious time playing rummikub last night.

side table: hautelook, $90 (from $298)
books: misc.
chairs: ebay, $120 for two
coffee table: target, $129
leather couch: craigslist, $300
botanical print: patina, $39
tree print: marshall's, $15
clock: target, gift
pencil painting: ben schuh original, gift
old man print: cut from a book, diy

this tray is the perfect addition to the island in our kitchen.
storing our silverware in it is convenient and has freed up lots of drawer space.
it's a great way to keep things handy and adds a little practical style to our kitchen as well.

tray: one kings lane, $30
island: steinmart liquidation sale, $120
silverware: west elm, wedding gift
flowers: backyard


  1. Hey Bethany - I love that tray! Can you share the brand so I can do some online searching of my own? :)


  2. Great buys! I just LOVE Gilt... probably buy way too much from there. But there are SO many good deals!
