Do you want to know my favorite part of being a homeowner?
Decorating. ANY WHICH WAY I CHOOSE.
I pick the paint colors. I pick the crown molding for the baseboards. I choose the color of the wood laminate when we lay new floors.
I choose the bedroom furniture. I choose the bed linens, the frames and the decorative accents.
And I get to fill my kitchen with whatever I so please!
I was playing around a bit on the Cost Plus World Market website and found a theme I’d love to showcase in my dining room. There were so many themes to choose from, and so many items were on sale online! I had a hard time not going crazy and buying everything they had on sale.
Each piece in my little collection revolves around the first piece, the Venetian sateen paisley table runner. I am so obsessed with Italy, it’s really not funny. This caught my eye and the next thing I knew, I was day dreaming of riding a Vespa through the streets of Venice with a bottle of wine in my basket.
That’s the sign of great decor – it transports you to a place you want to be, or it makes you happy to be where you are.

I realize that the silver seahorse platter is quite random, but if you knew me, you’d know that it would fit perfectly in my home. I love all things ocean-related and I adore sea creatures! Plus, hello, Italy is kind of an island. And…it’s a really cute platter.
While on the World Market website searching for Italian inspired kitchen and dining room decor, I came across the Cost Plus World Market Gourmet Getaway Sweepstakes advertisement and of course, I headed right over to the Cost Plus World Market Facebook page to enter!
