Poufs have arrived at Target. In silver and gold and they are super cheap.
For any new mom out there who has stumbled upon Serena & Lily and fantasized about decorating their nursery with their bedding and one of their whimsical poufs, have I got good news for you. I too was lured into the beauty of Serena & Lily and I’m ashamed to say I purchased my daughter’s crib bedding from them. But at $450 for a small leather ottoman, otherwise known as a Moroccan Pouf, the S&L style was too extravagant even for me.
But since I started my quest for a Moroccan inspired foyer I just couldn’t live without a pouf and so started my internet search for a more reasonable pouf. Say it, “Pouf”, so fun.
And here it is, Tazi. The poufs are half the price and I would wager that S&L purchases their poufs from this source. But that’s only a guess.
My beautiful pouf:
And my S&L bedding? The crib bumper and dust ruffle, both of which was no longer usable after we lowered her crib the first time, is stuffed in the top of the closet while I rack my brain on how to reuse them.

My husband, Andy, and I were in Savannah Georgia over the weekend. It was beautiful! Neither one of us had been there before, which rarely happens, because Andy’s been everywhere. I won’t lie to you, ever since I read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, I have wanted to go to Savannah. Now that I have, it makes me feel a little cheesy to say that.

All the locals make fun of you. It’s true. But don’t worry, not to your face. I have to say that by the time we left, we were enchanted. Andy was wondering what the school system was like, and I was already hunting for real estate on zillow.com.
I was not looking forward to many hours of googling to find that lamp or at least something similar. And then I got this email on Monday:
“When we were in SAV, and saw that lighting, they pulled out catalogs for us from these 2 manufacturers. I made a note of it, in case it would be helpful.
My husband is a rock star!
Oly Jenny Chandelier. $2722.50
I saw this and thought, I really, really, really want this for my office, but it was crazy expensive. So I talked it over with my husband (Andy), and he pointed out that no one sees my office but me and should I really spend that kind of money on something that no one else will get to enjoy? YES! I’m worth it. But a few minutes later, a tiny no, escaped my lips. That’s too much money. Unfortunately, the obsession didn’t stop there. Oly has amazing lighting and I found this…
