Up until last summer, I steered away from owning a houseplant. It had nothing to do with not liking plants, I guess I just tend to kill them faster then most humans on the planet. In general, I think I’m a bit intimidated. I owned a jade tree in junior high and it thrived, but everything else seemed to die when I neared it. After moving into the new house, I longed to have pretty greenery but really knew nothing about feeding or watering…only killing. I dragged my feet until last August when I attended The Renegade Craft Fair with Laura from Avery Street Design. Hence forth, I’ve become slightly obsessed with how I decorate with plants.

Man oh man you guys, the last couple weeks have been nutso in this hipster house. I swear, I should have just posted a sign outside the door that read, “Beware. The Plague”. If someone wasn’t sneezing or couching the other was barfing. Oh the humanity! I don’t think anything sucks worse then being sick while your kids are sick.
Anyhoo, I’ve really been trying to save money these days. And man-oh-man is it putting a damper on my shopping habits. I rarely seen my dear BFF the UPS man. I miss him so. In fact, I hear his truck pass the house and yearn to see his lovely face asking me to sign here. *sigh* But it got me thinking. Girl, you’ve got friends with super supreme style that are under the same budget restraints. You got this! So grab your pocketbooks lovely because I’ve been busy searching high and low for stylish bargain buys that won’t break the bank. Ready? And, go!

the boy always tells me i have champagne taste and yes, i will agree…it’s been that way since i was a kid. my mom would always tell me, “no one is going to know if you have $20 jeans or $200 jeans unless someone looks at the tag on your behind.” i beg to differ. while watching hgtv the other day, the host said, “with a little DIY, you’d never know this table was only $20.” ummm, yes. yes, i would…and the boy’s response to that was, “well that’s because you’re a snarky bitch momma.” bahahahahaha…this is also true (and he says that with love). but just because i have champagne taste, doesn’t mean i don’t have a budget.
so let’s do a little budget friendly shopping, shall we?
