New Ottoman

As referenced in an earlier post, I have been in the market for a new ottoman since my son both chewed the leather off and pulled out one of the buttons from a "tuft."  Yesterday, my new ottoman arrived.  Within 5 minutes, this was the scene:

I was recently persuaded to join while playing "Words With Friends" on Facebook.  70% was just too enticing to pass-up.  So, I joined, got a $5 off coupon (score!) and began browsing.  While the stuff on the site is beautiful, I just wasn't sure the prices were so "fab."  Yesterday, I opened-up the site and found these pillows from Safavieh which I

love!  The original price for the pair was $113, marked-down to $59...a steal of a deal!  I had remembered reading a review for an ottoman on earlier in the week where the reviewer stated it was a Safavieh ottoman they had purchased and the Overstock price was the best around.  I

I headed-over to: to see if they sold other Safavieh items and if I could spot the same pillow and see what they were selling for.  Lo-and-behold, by typing in the name of the pillows "Isadora" the same exact 22 inch pillow came up for $43.99 for the set.

The moral of the story is that even though a price seems "fab" you should still look around because you never know, you may find a better price.  And yes, I did order those pillows, from where, I will not say.

Item of the Day

I'm am so obsessed with my Hoover SteamVac.  It is by far, one of the best household purchases I've made...ever
I use it at least twice a month to either rid my office area rug of marks from foot traffic or use it clean cat vomit from various rugs around my house (of course they can't just puke on the hardwood floors).  It cost under $150 -- a steal of a deal.  I don't have any wall-to-wall carpets in my house and I STILL think it was a great buy; I can't imagine how amazing I would think it is if I got to clean an entire room of carpeting with it.  I also recommend the Hoover cleaning solution, it is the best around.

Snow 2012

Today is the first "real" snow day of the year.  I'm using to today to catch up on work, laundry and relaxing....ahhhh... Here are a couple of pics from the day.
Very sad about having his hood snapped to keep him warm
