    and I love stealing ideas from Pier 1 and trying to make them cheaply.

  20. Michaels

  21. Ross

  22. Target

  23. LOVE that red end table!

  24. One of my fav stores is Tai Pan

  25. I also love DownEast Home – they have killer deals!

  26. Can't forget about Ikea!

  27. Love Krumpets!

  28. And I also use Roberts.

    Michelle Malie

  29. Pick me! I always have great ideas but always lack the "doing" phase… Happy to take things you've already done for me!

  30. My favorite decoration in my home is a painting that my brother in law painted of a clipper ship. It's not his usual subject…he normal paints trains (think Howard Fogg) and they are all beautiful. But the first time I saw this painting (the ship one) I fell in love with it. Begged him to put me in his will to get it. I thought that was the only way I would ever get it…if he died! LOL But when my ex-husband and I got remarried, he gave it to us for our wedding present. We love it. It was the first thing we hung on our wall when we moved in.

  31. One of my favorite places to shop for home decor is IKEA. Sadly, we just moved to Omaha and they don't have one here. :( But I can still order online! YAY!

  32. Another place I love to shop for home decor is World Market. They always have such great add-on pieces…no matter where I shopped for the other things in the room…something from World Market with work with the room.

  33. OK, I might get eyes rolling on this one, but I don't care. I like to shop at Target for home decor. I love some of the new modern decor lines they have now. Most of it gives me inspiration to decorate where none existed before.

  34. Probably my number one favorite place to shop for home decor would be West Elm. Man, I love that place. It speaks for itself.

  35. And last but not least, CB2….which is Crate and Barrels new modern decor store. I haven't ever been there but I shop online and love love love it!

  36. Local Antique Stores

  37. Roberts

  38. You might think I am crazy but I often find home decor items that I love at places like Pawn Shops, Thrift Stores, Deseret Industries.

  39. Mike, Jess, Max and Gracie! says:

    I love the red side table! Very cute. It would also look great in my room. My favorite decoration is my Steve McGinty art work that Mike had framed for me. I love the chunky black frame.

  40. Sherratt's says:

    I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! My favorite decoration in my house is my rod that has my pictures (Taken by Brooke) hanging from it. I would love to win something!! You guys are the best!!

  41. Mike, Jess, Max and Gracie! says:

    Um…I like TJ Max. I got three people to follow your blog, that I know of:)

  42. Sherratt's says:

    I like to shop at Target

  43. Sherratt's says:

    I love Tai Pan

  44. This is bad, but I get tired of things pretty quickly, so I like the things that are the newest, like the rug in my living room.

  45. Sherratt's says:

    Living in Cedar City you have to count Robert's because it is almost your only choice!!

  46. Sherratt's says:

    TJ Maxx is good

  47. Stores I like are any stores that I can get to! I live in a small town and with 4 kids, it's hard to get to the big city and shop:( But anywhere I go, it's straight to the clearance section to score some great deals!

  48. Sherratt's says:

    Pottery Barn has cute ideas I like to copy but I don't shop there very often and I like IKEA for some stuff too!!

  49. Well you finally did it. You finally broke me down. I have fought hard and long but I can no longer keep up the resistance. I didn't want to beg…but you drove me to it. So here we are…me in an abject and abased state crying that the kiss of lady luck might land gently upon me and grant me the red side table.

    Kristian Olsen
    Though to be fair, I am not sure how you are going to ship it up to my abode. That might cost a pretty penny.

    As for favorite decor in the home…I would have to say they family photos. We had a friend who is a wonderful photographer take these great photos of us…we have them dotted around the home. Love 'em.

  50. I love Cost Plus/World Market. I really like their furniture and sense of style.

    Kristian j Olsen

  51. We have an IKEA here in Portland. While some of their stuff is crap occasionally you can find these great little gems at a thrifty price.

    Kristian j Olsen

  52. In Portland there is this great store called the ReBuilding Center. Basically it is like the D.I. of the construction world. People come and sell all their old stuff like sinks, toilets, wood, furniture, frames, etc. A great place to find hidden treasures. You can see their website here

    Kristian j Olsen

  53. While it is out of my price range I do like West Elm.

    Wendy Jackman

  253. I have been loving DI lately! Redoing projects! My husband has been trying to get me to go for years, I finally did this year and it is great!

    Wendy Jackman

  254. I love Tai Pan, things are hit and miss there though, with price. Some are soooo expensive, and some a steals!

    Wendy Jackman

  255. I also love Hobby Lobby!

    Wendy Jackman

  256. Antique shops are fun to go in (I love the Mill), mainly for ideas, it is so spendy sometimes!

    Wendy Jackman

  257. Also Rod Works is fun! Thanks for all the entries!

    Wendy Jackman

  258. I love all 3 but you are right that red end table is to die for, love love love it!!!

  259. Tai Pan and Krumpets are my 2 fav's especially when they are having their big sales! Lately I have gotten all crafty and like to sew things and refinish good finds. We have a couple good stores in St George, like Urban renewal that are great for that as well.

  260. Thanks to my wonderful friend Andrea I found you lovely ladies. Loving all the great new tips! I'm pretty sure the red end table and I are destinted to be! Fingers crossed!

  261. I added you to my blog roll :)

  262. I posted a link on my blog :)

  263. Dana Marchant says:

    Great GRAND prizes ladies! My favorite place for bargain hunting / decorating is the Las Vegas Auction that takes place every other weekend. Check out their site at I've found desks, chairs, dressers, tables…you name your price & quality!

  264. My favorite decorations in my house are my beach bathroom decorations and my vintage star kitchen!!! That end table would match perfectly!! and The mirror is fab too

  265. Dana Marchant says:

    My other favorite place to bargain hunt is our wide variety of thrift stores here in Sin City – Goodwill, Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, D.I.

  266. Dana Marchant says:

    Some of my favorite home decor has come from bargain hunting – From Goodwill: Dining Table with 6 chairs [$75], sofa table that just needed a good sand & coat of paint [$15] & even some great old sport memorabilia that decorates my 3-year old little boy's room.

  267. Dana Marchant says:

    Consignment stores also can have some great bargains — Found an piece of furniture that was orignially a desk [one of those with sliding drawers, place for your keyboard, etc.] and made it armoire for our TV in our living room. Colleen's Classic Consignment is one of my favorites in Las Vegas.

  268. I know it isn't the most creative, but my favorite place is my wall collage of pictures of my darling kids. I have a sign above them that says "All Because Two People Fell in Love" and then a collage of pictures of them. I love pictures. I have TONS of them. Too bad great frames are so expensive.

  269. 2. Savers. It's like DI with nicer stuff.

  270. I like to shop at Hobby Lobby. They seem to have a little of everything random there.

  271. I mostly don't shop for decor, but I like to look at ideas and then copy them. So most of my shopping is done at craft stores.

  272. I think Pottery Barn has some super cute things that are usually pretty simple. I like simple.

  273. 3. YARD SALES

  274. Nice prizes! I am excited! My favorite decoration in my house is this big mirror I got at Tai Pan. It makes the room more elegant.

  275. ( I swear Justi and I are always commenting at the same time. Too funny. )

    Anyway, #2- I love to shop at Down East Home. Especially when they have their white tent sale and everything is dirt cheap!

  276. 4. Pottery Barn. Tho I can't afford 99% of it!

  277. #3 – I love to shop garage sales for home decor.
    -Kelly NOrdfelt

  278. #4 – I love Ross! Good stuff there. (I got a huge black. chunky mirror their for $40!)

  279. 5. Craigs List is AMAZING.

  280. #5 – I love Goodwill and D.I. There are a lot of hidden treasures there!
    (Kelly Nordfelt

  281. #5 – classifieds and craigslist. Always a better deal then a store.
    (Kelly NOrdfelt)

  282. #6 – I love Roberts and Michaels, especially with the 40% off coupon!
