A few weekends ago, I made my quarterly trek down Rockville Pike to Target. Rockville Pike is everything in my mind that is bad about the suburbs so I can really only handle driving on it once a quarter. But really the quarterly trips to Target keep me pretty organized in buying and budgeting for cleaning products, paper products, and other household staples in three-month increments. And they really cut down on the Target impulse buys that plagued me when I lived in North Carolina and had two Targets on my drive home from work.
But I still fall victim to the occasional impulse buy on these trips. And on the most recent trip, that meant I came home with a lamp. Who impulse buys a lamp?!? I bought it without a plan for where to put it so it sat in the middle of my living for over two weeks. And then I moved my desk lamp to my bedside table. And rearranged my desk a little. And it works. I think.
Very little of my desk area has changed since the great desk area remodel of Staycation 2010. A few things moved around, a few things gone, a few things added. But I sill love the gallery wall and yellow chair! (And just so you know I keep it real and not treat pictures like a House Beautiful or any other overly stylized photo shoot, you can see that there is actual trash in my garbage can.)
I love the little postcards Kate Spade includes in orders. I also really like that I consider the postcards a personal thank you note from Kate herself for buying the cutest overpriced stuff that there is. So of course I framed it (It's says "She is quick and curious and playful and strong." I am not entirely sure I am any of those things but it looks cute in a frame!)
It is super-cute lamp; you can totally understand why I impulse bought it, right?
