New House Overload

Don't y'all just LOVE the new house?? It's a little small for my taste, and obviously a fixer-upper but I guess you get what you pay for. 


Currently we're living in a very quaint (code for wee) apartment, and I think it needs a facelift. We've got quite the hodgepodge of furniture, and I'd like to get some more modern things to spruce things up around here. I stopped by WordsWorth Books the other day (a lovely recommendation from my friend Liza) and picked up an Elle Decor for some ideas. Of course, the first page I flip open to is an ad for John Derian for Target! 

How could I have forgotten?! I had heard rumblings and read blurbs about it for a while and it had completely slipped my mind. Well, I wish it hadn't, because most of it is sold out now! Quelle dommage.
But there is hope... a few great things remain, including:

This set of floral salad plates (perhaps not gender neutral enough? whatevs) would be so cute for well, salad, but also for birthday cake and I like the idea of having one for keys or something.

Aren't these funky dining plates cool? I'm usually partial to the classic white dish for everyday, but I like the look of these bad boys.

Well, slightly disappointed in the lack of available product from Target, I headed over to Overstock to peruse coffee tables and other things we need. Sooooo impressed.

Acrylic is so hot right now! And I dig the magazine storage (considering my mag addiction I can never have enough). They also have these nesting tables:

And I'm also digging this more sophisticated option:

All of them can be found on Overstock.com! I'm still deciding, but I'm also going to check out some local flea markets (so so so excited) before I make any big purchases. I'll be sure to update!

Do you guys have any great sites to check out? Or know of any great flea markets in or around Arkansas?

UMMMMMMMM THERE ARE TONNNNNNS of amazing Flea Markets ALLLL around LR. My mom and I are frequent shoppers. Half of our S. 16 house was flea market. Best one is in the shopping center at the Markham/Rodney Parham intersection, and the one on Cantrell in Riverdale by Sonic. You should FBook message my mom for the names of some if you're serious about going on a good "flea hunt"
