Saturday Shopping and Project.....Done!!!

I have been so inspired and motivated by getting finished with the living room, that I am moving on.....

Moving on to do a little more "refreshing" in other rooms of the cottage, that is!

Today, I went out to Kohl's, in order to use a 30% off coupon I received in the mail before it expired.  I think that place was the most packed I've ever seen it.....guess it is all the end of summer/back to school sales!  But, I strolled right past the clothing department......and scored big for the bathroom!

I'm so proud of my bargains - I've gotta toot my horn a little!  

Four bath towels....
Four hand towels.... 
Cotton bath mat....
Shower curtain....
 Set of full-size, super soft microfiber sheets for the guest bedroom.  
Total cost after sales and discount - $108.75, including tax.  

Not to mention, I got a $10 off coupon on my next purchase.  (Kinda like Kohl's cash, but a little different.)  At any rate, I have through the end of the month to redeem it, so their gimmick to get me back in the door will definitely work!  

I've been laundering up towels this evening; got the new shower curtain pressed and hung.  Can't wait til daylight (and I get the placed cleaned up) when I can get some photos to share.....

I also found time to cover the seats of the chairs at the dining table.  I've been meaning to do this for a long time.....and I found the fabric a couple of weeks ago, when I was actually out shopping for some living room items. As I prowled through the clearance bins at the fabric store, I found the "gingham" style fabric - soft, buttery gold and a green that was nearly a perfect match for the color on the walls in the kitchen and dining area.  At $9/yard and 60 inches wide, it only took about a yard to cover the seats of all four chairs.

Here's a little sneak peek at how they turned out.  I love how my favorite table runner still works with this new fabric......

 And, in between it all, I found time to show a house this afternoon!

Linking with -

Lavender Garden Cottage's "Cottage Style Party"
Alderberry Hill's "Make the Scene Monday" 
I definitely feel a sense of accomplishment as I get ready to crawl into bed tonight!  Can I accomplish as much tomorrow?  I guess we shall see.....

Feeling blessed......
