Time keeps on tickin, tickin

Well hello there....(insert crickets)
I'm dying here. I had decided to embrace the fact that we were going to be in a rental for a while and I wasn't going to be working on "a project" for some time but this is ridonculous! Sadly I can't stand it now. My creative juices need to get to flow before long or I'm gonna burst. Yes for a while we were designing our floor plan. Then we played with the exterior elevations but I'm ready to see concrete(lots of it..hint,hint) textures, paint, and lighting! Bring it on please! We had a closing date for the construction loan last week but yet they found another something has to be reviewed and thus we go to the bottom of the underwriters pile. Tip 145 to building a home: Have Cash and avoid the treacherous waters of the financing industry! If only right?!
So in order to relieve myself(or torture maybe) I took advantage of some time without the kiddos (yay for grandparents coming to visit) to stroll through one of my favorite places! Oh it's yummy in so many ways. I fell in love with Four hands 10 years ago on a warm summer day with a 50% off coupon in my paint covered little hand (they don't do that anymore but do have great warehouse sales). Let me show you why I have a thing for this place. Bad phone pics ahead cause I am way to shy to bring out the big dog while window shopping;)

loved this lacker look sofa table
modern twist on a saw horse for sure

These chandeliers are huge and gorg and of course pricey..
There was a time(before kids) when I wanted the hubs to help me dream up a wood light fixture.  I guess I missed the boat because it has definitely been done now and they are lovely.  I don't think we could have pulled these babies off!

Oh BABY!  I love dining tables..
So much so that over a year ago I bought one here at a warehouse sale and it still patiently awaits us in the garage.  We actually designed our dining nook around it so I suppose I shouldn't change my mind sale it and buy this one if I want to have a healthy marriage right?  But look at those industrial legs...I just drooled a little.

Um yes!  Nothing better than this buffet.  Clean lines, rustic wood..ahhhh

Oh more metal love.  Stools and tables oh my!

Look at the perfect little pop of color in this bad boy.

I may or may not ;) have a plan for this buffet in the casa..We shall see what happens but I get all sweaty just thinking about it!

This chair was awesomely awkward and weird which I am always drawn to.
A little space age collegiate action for the office.  It's for somebody for sure!

You can also find wonderful more traditional pieces too.  This is beautiful in person!

A little more traditionally funky can be found in this chair!  If your tired of me making up design words this may not be the place for you.  I can't help it.

Velvety cozy cool

Kid proof and it looks good.  That is what many of us are searching for when buying new furniture right?  Can't go wrong with this neutral chair in leather (unless your anti leather) then you can go very wrong with this;)

A little bling is always good! Loved these moroccan inspired metal tables.

I can see this holding fluffy towels and bathroom goodies in our master bath.

This grey diddy will also be making himself known soon in a living room near your computer.  Keep your eyes peeled for him.  

Oh mercy! Love the bling, the rustic, and cozy all mixed together.  If I had to define my house "style" I would just hold this picture up and wouldn't have to say a word.  This is it...or what I want it to be anyway.

The only thing missing on this chair are the three jumping kids with blueberry stained fingers.  I will leave this beauty for all you clean and civilized folk out there.

This would have been an awesome fathers day gift for the hubs upcoming home office if we were the kind of people that spent $400 without consulting one another or sleeping on it.  But we aren't so I didn't!  Your welcome honey.  Hope it was good anyway.

I wanted to buy you this one too babe but until we change the rules I can't surprise you with awesomeness like this!

So there was my 30 minutes of bliss last week.  I'm glad you could come along.  It's funny that now that we have a family and are always busy and tired that I find things like perusing target or a place like this with a cup of Jo in my hand pure pleasure but I do! Even though I didn't buy a thing. (YET!)

Oh my! I haven't been in the store in a long time. They have some awesomeness for sure. Can't wait to go to the warehouse sale in the morning. Maybe I'll run into you?!

@Dana Frieling
I had a feeling you might be going! That work thing always gets in my way so I never make it until all the good stuff in gone! Don't go too carazzy!

I went to their outlet for the first time on the sale weekend (Dana was there too) and I was drooling. Like a kid in a candy store. Perfect store for me. It's almost all exactly "my style." I got a few things at the warehouse store. I seriously was there for three hours. Ridonculous.
