Pier 1 Share the Love

As many of you probably know I recently was chosen as one of ten winners for Pier 1 share the love contest.  I submitted a photo by adding a hashtag at the bottom during their specified contest timeframe.

I love taking photographs, I’m always looking for that magical photo that is somewhat styled and then a little bit candid.  During Easter and one of the rare occasions my daughter agreed to wear a dress (there may have been some bribery  going on guys) I noticed she was sitting cheerfully on our front steps sticking her dirty feet up in the air.  This is why I love my iPhone camera, it’s usually there at a momements notice unlike my nicer DSLR camera that I use much less these days.

This is the photo that I took and that got me selected as a winner.  All on my iPhone camera.  Here is a little tip about using the filters on IG, well I don’t.  I never use filters!  My favorite way to edit photos is to alter the brightness, lighting, shadows, contrast and/or saturation.  By simply manipulating those things I never need a filter and t helps me create beautiful photos.

Okay now onto the fun stuff.  What I bought!  I’m going to share with you some of the fun stuff I got with my Pier 1 winnings!

First up this new chair for our Master Bedroom corner.  It is so cozy, a little larger then most arm chairs but I liked that about it since we only have one.

I tried to fit a side table next to it but because of the width of the chair it wouldn’t fit in our corner.  Instead, I anchored the sides with a tall vase and set of pillar candles.  Under the chair felt dark and boring so I stacked books to fill the space and add interest.

The other item I got for our bedroom is a beautiful floor mirror, which doesn’t sound exciting but it actually has built in jewelry storage! ​ 

​ You must put this on your wish list it is perfect to organize all your jewels and baubles! And when you close it looks like a beautiful vintage style mirror, much better than that one we had hooked over the back of our closet door, you know circa college dorm. 😉


In our downstairs living room I have this beautiful side table that I love so much.  It looks like a card catalog but with beachy vibes.   I wanted a piece of art that I loved equally as much.  I found this huge painting on sale the colors are a beautiful pop, not to mention the rustic wooden frame, gives me all the Farmhouse feels.  It fills this vertical space perfectly and adds my favorite pop of color.

Lastly, I found some summery kitchen accessories, too cute to leave with out.

First this drink caddy set which is perfect for serving guests drinks on the patio.  Second, I grabbed these tropical palm leaf placemats because well they are so fun and summery on our outdoor dining table!

Do you see that adorable little galvanized wheel barrel? It’s actually a salad bowl with matching fork and shovel.  Seriously?! I can’t handle the cuteness.  Pier 1 has such fabulous stuff right now guys!  I  linked as much as I could for you to check out.  A lot of these items were on sale when I got them.  Or I found them in store and they are sold out online.

What do you think about all my items?! Any favorites?  Huge thanks to Pier 1!
