I had some of my best friends in this weekend for a little girls weekend!  It was a blast – we had so much fun.  But that gave me a lot less time to work on any “big projects” this weekend.  So instead – I want to share with you something “small” that makes a big difference to me.

So this was our Living Room the last time I shared it with you guys.  I had just added the art behind the couch – centered of course.

Now at this point – I said I had two things I wanted to do.  One was to replace those ugly vertical blinds – that is still in the works due to the loss of some necessary parts from a trip to Ikea.  The other thing was to get some new baskets for the coffee table. 

I have looked high and low for baskets for about 6 months straight.  Never was able to find any that I loved.  Until just recently.  Check it out!

Living Room - baskets

They are so perfect!  I love the neutral liners and the multi colored woven look.  Here is a closer look.

Baskets - close up

Aren’t they lovely?  And you wanna guess where I found them?  You will never believe that these beauties came from Kroger.  Yep – we have a fancy Kroger Marketplace with a full home goods section.  So these were on sale for about $7 a piece and I knew I had to have them.

Basket

Love em!  They are going to be perfect for the lil man to keep his stuff in once he gets into the crawling phase!  They really make me so happy – sometimes it is just the little things!

So what about you?  Made any little changes in your house recently that you are just in love with?

Okay, which Kroger are you going to??? I go to the one in your town, and I know they don't have this section. lol!! Are you going out to the newer big one closer to H'ville? Fabulous find! And, you're right, they will be PERFECT for your new little one to stash toys!

Love those! Wish our Kroger had the marketplace - they have such great finds there.

Those will be perfect for your little man's little things :)

Very fun baskets, they look perfect under your table. I guess I was MIA when you announced your little one on the way, a big congrats to you and your husband!

Jess,
I recently bought one of these small square wooden plant pots from Ikea. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/search/?query=BJUR%C3%96N++pot

I usually buy tealights (also from Ikea) in bulk, and this box is the perfect holder.

It's silly...
But it made me so happy!

That is a great price. I thought I'd scored last week when I picked some up on sale at Target for $9.99, but mine aren't lined and they are smaller. Good deal! I like the texture baskets add to your room.

I love it when you find something that is a perfect fit like that! They look great!

It's like they were made from that coffee table! Also, I hear ya on the IKEA thing. I love them, but half the time I want to open my product at the store because I know there will be some part missing. I still haven't fully built my coffee table (from 6 months ago...) because I don't want to go all the way back to IKEA.

Those do look great! My little man loves to get into everything, so it is nice to have baskets and drawers set aside for him to get into. I chose you for a Stylish Blogger Award! Click here to see!

Love the baskets, and what a perfect place to store your little guys favorite toys!! And they'll look neat and tidy when you want to clean up! Love it!

Love the baskets!!! It is very hard to find the perfect ones for a perfect price! Looks like you scored big time! Miss you! Sorry I haven't been commenting. :(
