The one about Colorsnap...

I just saw via Pinterest that Sherwin Williams has an app to find the paint color that corresponds to real life colors. Sounds pretty awesome to me! It says it works on Blackberry but I am so over my BB and will only do this once I have fully appleized my life and added an iphone to my arsenal (hopefully in next month or two). 

check it out here

Anyway, check it out, let me know if you have it or plan to try it, I wonder how accurate it is.

The one about all the stuff I saw while shopping but didn't buy...

*disclaimer: horrid photos, please don't hold my BB's camera against me.

task lamps, for around $40-$50, great deal and very similar to those sold PB/WS.

Pier 1
faux Mora (grandmother) clock, about an inch thick. cute. Once featured in a Country Living sweepstake.

table top Mora. Not diggin floral print, but love otherwise.

slip covered slipper chair. Really like the color palette of this cover.

Southeastern Salvage
metal dining chairs (that I've been pining over!)...only $78!! Similar at PB are $245/ea.

garden bench. these were about twice the size of all the other ones I've seen (more apropos for actual side table use) and these were only $68! Cheapest by far!
I never thought I'd be so good at walking away...but if you've read my last post, I'm trying to veer away from unplanned purchases as they tend to turn sour.
