Pier One Pretties

Two weekends ago we had absolutely gorgeous weather so we decided to spend the day gallivanting around town. David and I lunched with our best friend and did some shopping {as did the rest of the world--I haven't seen that area so busy since Christmastime!} afterward.

We stopped into Pier 1 and I snapped some pics of things that caught my eye. I only picked up one gift for a dear friend who is most likely the cutest pregnant lady ever. I can't wait to send it her way for her soon-to-come baby boy. Once I mail it, and she gets it, I'll post a pic. It's adorable, promise.

As I was perusing the store these coasters jumped out at me. I like the design, but I like even more the option to pick and choose the quantity and colors for yourself. Brilliant, Pier 1!

I really liked this tray and snapped a pic for my sister-in-law. She and her husband just closed on their new home and I thought this would be perfect for their living room ottoman!

Owls, elephants, and birds make me happy....even in salt and pepper shaker form. : )

I love this headboard and it's on sale for $99! Someone has to snag this one. You know my love for bamboo! Of course, I think it'd be more fun painted a fun color!

Loving this floral lamp so much! It was too expensive for my tastes and I was not a fan of the shade, but I couldn't help but fall in love with the pattern. Waiting for a supersale...

Photobucket

I saw this rug and immediately I loved the floral pattern. But I really liked it for my sister and brother in law's new place! What do you think, Em? A new kitchen rug perhaps? ; )

Photobucket

Last but not least, I fell in love with this mirror. I didn't happen to see a pricetag, and I definitely did not need it, but I'm hoping someone I know picks it up. It's a beaut!

Photobucket

Oh, and not a Pier 1 find, but I did snag a pair of never-worn shoes at the Goodwill for $6! I've already worn them twice and I love them. Sweet!

p.s. I wasn't contacted by Pier 1 to do a plug for them, I honestly saw these great finds last week and wanted to share! : )

Love the coasters....I might have to take a little trip to Pier 1!

Maybe you SHOULD contact Pier 1. You would be a great advertiser for them. Teehee.

KT @ KT's Refinishing School said...

Those are some great finds, especially the coasters and tray! I might have to try and DIY some coasters like that with scrapbook paper.

I hope one of your readers gets that mirror too because it's gorgeous :)

Those coasters are adorable. And I love all of Pier 1's little ceramic animals. Did you see the coffee mugs shaped like animals? ADORABLE : )

I picked up the bird salt and pepper shakers (the red and green ones) from Pier 1 a few months ago and vowed not to go back for awhile because there was so much other stuff I wanted. And then here you are, posting all this cute stuff that I think I need! Dang you, Joi! =) Loving those coasters.

K said...

I LOVE that lamp! It looks really similar to something Sarah Richardson rigged from a pretty vase on her show.

I love the tray and the rug!! I haven't been to Pier 1 in ages, so I guess it's time for another trip!

Hello, Pier 1 goodness! It's going to be even more dangerous living two blocks away from Pier 1 after seeing your roundup! I wish the floral rug came in a pillow!

Yay! The tray is exactly, exactly what I've been looking for to lighten up the look of the HUGE square and dark coffee table I just got from my grandma. Thank you. I'm hoping it's fairly large.

Lovely Little Nest said...

I literally gasped at the sight of those coasters ~ too fabulous!

That tray is great as well, and I agree; it would be perfect on an ottomon!

Danielle said...

Great shoes! I just nabbed a pair of leopard shoes for $8 from the Salvation Army today and a campaign side table for $10. I still can't believe I got it for that! Also, I totally agree that bamboo bedframe needs a coat of pretty paint!

Michelle said...

That headboard!!! Why don't I have a place/need for that??

I saw those coasters last week and I about died... It took some mighty strong willpower to tell myself, No I dont need TWO sets of coasters! I also have those bird S&P shakers and I love em... $3 for the pair!

Veronica said...
