Ridiculous Tweets, Humor Quotes to Pin, Blowout Sales & What’s in My Cart?

If you aren’t in the mood for homewares, then bargain shopping or Way Days may not even be on your radar. Check out my archives for yummy inspo! But would you, could you, be in the market for giggles? Good. And should you have a list like mine (moving to a new place means windows and more to address), you may want to mosey over to Wayfair for a peek at price reductions.

Linen Reversible Farmhouse / Country Quilt
Reversible Country Quilt in Natural, Pine Cone Hill

I was relatively late to shopping this source for homewares, and I blame the annoying pre-2020s tv commercials.

Awful jingles inspired me to turn the channel, not browse. Also, I couldn’t imagine the brands I favored (Aidan Gray? Pine Cone Hill? Sarreid? Hooker?) were on a site that appeared so silly.

Flash forward.

Goodness gracious, every product on earth is marketed with ordinary people lacking talent for dance. They dance wildly, happily, and usually very badly.

And I get that there’s marketing intelligence behind it all.

But is there a petition to sign to stop the “must portray consumers as mindless twerking morons at all costs”? And just how did my thrifty shopping ditty turn into a rant?

Is the exhaustion from DIY home renovation showing?

First thing on my list to address? Light filtering shades for a few rooms. I bought this one, love it, and need more.

Window Treatment Ideas

I independently selected products in this post—if you buy from one of my links, I may earn a commission.

If you have measured for ready-made shades, then you know it can be a headache even if you follow the maker’s measuring instructions precisely. No magic pill to share here. At least returns are easy these days!

Bathroom Vanity Sets

I also need a vanity or two. Something like this for a guest bath:

Wouldn’t the green be cheerful and a fun starting point for a bath? This one is similar to what I installed in a main bath at our prior home:

Classic and blue, I love how the gold fixtures and hardware harmonize here below:

Updates For a Powder Room

I’m also thinking about adding a gold-toned faucet to our powder room’s pedestal sink. Right now, there’s an oil rubbed bronze one, but I love the Old World style of this:

This antique brass option is similar and more affordable:

Looks like the cross handled design for this one (above) doesn’t include the white “hot” and “cold” on handle tops, but I have found those little discs sometimes pop off too easily anyway.

We need new towels and bath mats – why is it that a visit from in-laws or a move always magnifies how pathetic and nearly threadbare all your linens are?

Signature Bath Mat

And we’ll need sconces for a few places here. I like simple, traditional, timeless styled fixtures that don’t shout 1992…

Carrera Marble Tile

I’m sort of obsessed with white marble everything these days, and I can’t really explain. This house just wants it everywhere, and I’m listening.

I’ll need tile like this for at least one bath we’re renovating:

Honeycomb tile is so classic and timeless and feels home-y to me. Ever since we bought our very first 1920s house in Chicago, we have loved us some honeycomb.

Not that there’s anything wrong with basketweaved carrera! Gorgeous!

And the price is gorgeous too:

Here’s the mosaic tile we used for the shower floor of our master bath in our prior home:

We never tired of it, loved living with it, and you may recall that when I was chronicling our renovation in 2015, This Old House pinned our shower floor, and it went viral! I was so new to social media could not comprehend that our under-construction shower floor was on every bathroom Pinterest board.

Crazytown!

Here’s a marble tile I’m considering for a shower/bath at the new place:

Wouldn’t it be amazing in a bath, on a shower floor, or for a backsplash behind a range in the right kitchen?

Tables With a Marble Top

While I’m not unhappy with our current everyday round dining table, I know I would love it topped with marble. But have you ever secured a quote for a custom marble tabletop!?!

It’s enough to make you wanna buy new:

Sometimes a faux marble look for certain things just makes good sense.

For example, if you like the look of marble and need decorative shelves for an office or kids room, the weight of real stone is probably less desirable.

Something like these below makes sense because though they’re suggestive of marble, they won’t leave your wall in a crumbly mess and are safer for rambunctious wall-scaling minors.

Table Lamps With Marble Ideas

These caught my eye since I’m introducing gold to some of my interiors.

I can see them in an entry, on a dining room buffet, and even on a kitchen counter:

I’m on the hunt for marble bedside lamps, and they can get pricey. Sometimes a ceramic lamp base can give you the same feel of marble for a fraction of the price.

Rugs & Floor Mats

I have not bought rugs in years! Since I need one near the front door, for a bedroom, in bathrooms, etc. it’s time to shop. And even though we moved to this house with a bunch of neutral furnishings and accessories, many of them just. don’t. work.

This new house clearly wants cool tones.

This rug below has muted neutral tones and a low low price. Seems like it would be just right as an accent in a range of different bedrooms even though it’s not gonna be thick and sumptuous.

I’m always on the lookout for cordless lamps so this one from Wayfair caught my eye. There are plenty of situations where you just don’t want an ugly cord showing.

And these days, for folks who work from home and kids learning and studying at home, we seem to need desks and task lighting everywhere.

By the way, does working remotely or learning from home translate into daily life becoming easier? Ummmm. Modern life requires us to be more mindful than ever about how we care for ourselves and for each other.

Is it time to slow the pace?

I’m also a fan of modern lighting, and this one has a unique profile:

That said, I have never met a pharmacy lamp I didn’t love. My parents loved ’em so they remind me of home:

Psst. Shopping for homewares means deliveries. And all of the deliveries to a new home when you move can spell….a massive cardboard mountain rising to the limits in the garage

Consequently, my husband and I become more giddy than I can say each week on garbage/recycling day.

Wait.

Did I start this whole dang post with a rant about bad happy dances over Wayfair homegoods and then admit I almost do them weekly on garbage pickup day?

Oy. Life these days is humbling.

So humbling.

Peace to you right where you are.
