HomeGoods, Oh How I love You. <br>The Yellow Edition.

I do heart this little twiggy, oh so sunny yellow plant stand I found at HomeGoods.

I was going to put it in front of the fireplace with some summer plants.

HomeGoods, Oh How I love You. <br>The Yellow Edition.

But plants in a plant stand were so, well, predictable (well, actually I couldn’t find any I could keep alive.).

HomeGoods, Oh How I love You. <br>The Yellow Edition.

So, for now, I decided what we really needed is a place to put all our remotes, or as I like to call them, clickers.

I don’t even know how to turn on the TV by myself, but the rest of the family uses these gadgets.

I am never sure which one to try first.

HomeGoods, Oh How I love You. <br>The Yellow Edition.

And how about this yellow beauty?

Yellow just makes me happy.

Lanterns make me happy.

HomeGoods makes me happy.

What nifty stuff have you found at HomeGoods lately?

    My favorite store ever!! I am like a kid in a candy shop when I go there. Great finds!

  2. Tracy

    Oh, Melissa! I haven’t had time to go to HomeGoods since the last time I shopped for a client-what, a month ago?-and the only thing I found for myself was a boring vanilla-colored duvet cover that I’m going to add my own topper to. (so I don’t actually have to sew the whole thing myself) I love your finds. And I don’t think a yellow curly wire plant stand with plants in it is predictable at all! The ‘curly’ and the ‘yellow’ make it anything but.

    • Melissa

      Ha, just kidding about the plants. I am totally going to do that. When I find some nice hearty ones :-)

  3. Kristi

    Thanks for linking up! I love *love* that lamp!

    LOVE yellow. its my most favorite color in the home. :) oh, that…and gray. :)

  5. ellen

    Where did you find that slipcover for the couch? My couch is nearly the same style, and I’ve been searching for one for a while. Love your daily photos!

    Will send one of a yellow metal plant stand I found at Home Goods soon!

    • Melissa

      The slipcover was a floor sample at Pottery Barn!

  6. Jess

    Oh I love it!!! I got a beautiful ginger jar and a charging station on my last trip! Home Goods is my favorite place ever!!

  10. Laura

    We only have one Home Goods in Houston, and I just made my first trip there recently. My kitchen and den are yellow, so you know I love love love that lamp.

    I’m going to get there ASAP to check out the newest and greatest deals!

    Ours just opened and I haven’t made it over there yet. I can’t wait to visit this store I read so much about!

  12. bridget {bake at 350}

    I love, love, love, love yellow! And I love your finds!!! I suddenly feel the need to go to Home Goods…and it’s 10:39pm. I think I’ll have to wait 12 hours. ;)

  13. Kelly

    Love the plant stand! Love the lamp! Love the yellow! Love the HomeGoods!

    I haven’t been in a while. Last time I went, I found a lamp and art and baskets and towels – so many goods, so little time!

    Laura, which HomeGoods did you go to? I’ve been to two in Houston – one on I10/Katy Fway and one in a shopping center on West Gray.

    HomeGoods IS my candy store! It has been a life saver so many times. I “heart” that place. franki

  15. JulieD

    I love yellow and it makes me happy too. Definitely inspiring me to look at HomeGoods again, I wish it wasn’t so far from me but I’m going to swing by there soon. We need lots of help with decorating in our house. :) There has just been a lot of home improvement. Your blog is going into my google reader. :)

      HomeGoods is 3 hours from me. Sad, huh? But I go every chance I get!!

  16. dee J

    Love the yellow. My favorite color ever. My blog has a yellow inspired header that I love. Love what you found at Home Goods and where you put them in your home. Good job. So inspiring!

  17. Maggie M

    LOVE HomeGoods!!! Should be called HomeGreats…;)

    Love your finds!!! Now, of course, I’ll have to make a trip there tomorrow. I’m so easily swayed…

    • Melissa

      HomeGreats… heh hee heh. That is just what they should be called.

  18. erin

    You know, I was WAY too distracted by your couch to notice the yellow. The couch was too cute. I’m not a yellow person. But I AM a couch person. Anyday.

    • Melissa

      :-) Yay for couch people!

  19. Cheryl

    Those pharmacy lamps on each side of your sofa are both practical and interesting! Are those Home Goods finds as well? I’m looking for floor pharmacy lamps.

    • Melissa

      No, the pharmacy lamps are not from HomeGoods. I’m trying to remember where I got them. I THINK I might have gotten them from Macy’s…like a year ago or so. I love them. They don’t require a table, for one! And they are very handy for reading! I adore lamps and I love that these are different than a regular table lamp or floor lamp!

  20. Sarah

    Saaaahwoooon! Love them both! I am with you on the yellow — I just picked up some pretty yellow spray paint today for the kitchen. :)

  21. Kacey

    I love happy yellow! And how I love HomeGoods. Just resisted the urge to stop in there today. Now I’m afraid I will have to go tomorrow!

  22. Andrea

    Ok I know you live in Washington (I live in Seattle) where is there a Home Goods around? When I enter in my zip code on their site it says no store found for 100 miles:( Please share;)

  23. Annelise

    Out home goods is an hour away but I am glad to have some “sunny” inspiration this morning. There is a special place in my heart for yellow. I have been holding on to two Tole lamps that are yellow. They need a bit of re wiring.

  24. Kathy

    My most recent favorite from Home Goods is a two-tier wire basket {I even posted about it}. It was silver but I spray painted it Heirloom White and just love it!

  25. Mary Joy

    Those are both SO cute!!!!! I love yellow too! And the yellow that you got was the perfect smooth and creamy yellow that is my favorite! Mmmmm! So pretty!

    We don’t have a HomeGoods store anywhere around here but I love going online and admiring their beautiful pictures! LOL Someday I will find one and actually go visit! Thanks for the gorgeous pictures this morning!

    I LOVE THAT LITTLE LAMP! Would you mind telling us how much it cost?
    .-= Irene @ OurUglyHome´s last blog ..A Quick Note =-.

    • Melissa

      Ahhh, I wish I could remember!! I will look for my receipt and post it if I can find it!

  27. Rachel

    There are no stores in Oklahoma.

    I am so immeasurably sad, but I am sure that my DH would be almost turning cartwheels, since he hates me bringing home (as he calls it) “MORE dustcatchers?!”

    SIGH. So the lack of a Home Goods is probably saving my marriage. LOL

  28. Laura

    I love the couch ~ the white is so beautiful!! Do you have kids? I just wonder because I so LOVE the look of a white couch, but with 3 kids & a dog….I just don’t think it would work. Also, I saw that pillow (with the bird’s nest on it) in a post a while ago & I *love* it! Where did you get it???

  29. Jayne

    The nearest HomeGoods is in San Antonio, about three hours away from Austin. You’d think we’d rate one here but I guess not… *sigh*

  30. the cape on the corner

    i am always declaring my love for the HG, in fact, i call it mecca. As in, i went to the mecca to return something, and of course, you have to give the store the once over! I never get out of there without doing 2 things-spending money and muttering aloud over some strange find. like life size giraffes.

  31. Karen


    I love the yellow twiggy stand—I love what you decided to do with it (there are always so many “clickers” attached to TV anymore, right?) and I love the way it looks at the end of the sofa. The pillows on the sofa pop with the yellow stand! That’s great.

    I love Home Goods, haven’t been for awhile—I’m inspired to visit this week!

  32. Fifi Flowers

    You’re soooo RIGHT… Home Goods is a FAB u LOUS home decor store!!!

  33. Emily

    You are in the Seattle area? Where is there a HomeGoods around here?? I am dying to find one!!

    • Melissa

      I have to go to the one in Portland….no HomeGoods anywhere closer, sadly. :-(

  34. Julianna

    This would also be a great place for some rolled up throws in the fall and winter! I love it!

  35. teresa

    The last thing I got there was a very large trunk…I use it as a coffee table. I just got a email today from HOme Goods 60% off sale in our area {ca.}….maybe it’s nation wide not sure.

    Yellow makes me happy as well. I’ve been looking for yellow things (pillow covers, planters etc) but I guess I’m going to have to make them!

  39. Lynne ledom

    I love,love,love Home Goods! I go quite often as there is one 10 minutes from my house. I thought they were everywhere because we have at least 3or4 in the Kanss City area. I buy so much in there I can’t even remember everything. It’s my go to place for 500 thread count sheets for amazing prices!

  40. Shelly B.

    Loved your post, and the fab pillow in the background that you did even mention. I’m in Washington state and do not know what a HomeGoods store is -which is probably a good thing! Love the yellow too. :) (I Googled HG just in case…. none in Washington.)

  41. Shelly B.

    Oh!! I just saw the post about the Portland store! We head down there once in a while for soccer tournaments -I must take the address with me, and enough room in the car, just in case.

  42. Erin

    I LOVE Home Goods!

    My most recent find were velvet curtains for $20 a panel. They were the perfect off color of red I needed for my master bedroom. But the most exciting part was…when I got home and opened them and a roll of hooks wrapped inside the panels had POTTERY BARN stickers on them.

    YES ladies….I got Pottery Barn, velvet curtains for $20 a panel at Home Goods!! My best find by far. :)

    I love Home Goods too! I haven’t been in about six months, but we are going for a baseball tournament and the HG is right there! I can spend HOURS in there. . . for real!

  44. Ronnell

    Oh, its about 2 hours from me in STL.

    I heard a couple of weeks ago that HG’s is opening at least one store (Puyallup) in WA this year. Sorry, but that is all I know. They verified this in their FB page.

    Also, I travel a lot for work and look for HGs everywhere I travel in case I have time to shop. The TSA people at various airports just laugh and shake thier heads whenever they see me with a package. Sometimes, I even ship things back to my home if things are too many, too heavy or too big to take on the plane. Other times, if I plan things right, I take a suitcase (2 bags free on Southwest Airlines).
