Celebr8ing 800 Posts

Woohoo, we've made it to 800 posts. I honestly never thought I would hit this mark. To celebr8 (I couldn't help myself), I've got some lists of 8 for you.

8 home items I think everyone should have from 8 of my favorite stores:

1. Clean simple dinnerware, by keeping it simple you will never worry about being out of style - Crate & Barrel

2. Storage baskets, a person can never have enough storage baskets, seriously - Cost Plus World Market

3. A bit of whimsy for the wall, something a bit fun for the wall is never a bad thing (in moderation) - ZGallerie

4. Succulents, real or fake, I love 'em - Pier1

5. Sheep skin rug, again, real or fake, you can use them in tons of different ways and places - Ikea

6. Something surprising in the kitchen, a brightly colored serving dish can spice up those classic, clean, simple plates of yours for a dinner party or a holiday meal - West Elm

7. Simple glass bud vases, they go with everything, and you never know when someone will bring you flowers - CB2

8. Something with sparkle, who doesn't love a little sparkle? - Pottery Barn

Thanks for including me on your list. I'm glad to see I own 2 of the 8 must haves (deer head and sheep skin).
