Friday Find

For years, I have kicked myself for selling back my Art History 101 textbook in college. What was I thinking? A beautiful hardcover book showcasing amazing art from the beginning of time to current. Hundreds of pages of gorgeous, glossy photos of the world's most valued pieces. And I'm pretty sure I sold it back to the bookstore for a measly $30. Ugh!

Well, my friends, my favorite discount store has saved me (again). While perusing HomeGoods a couple of weeks ago, I spied The History of Art. Hard cover. Hundreds of glossy art photos. $15 bucks. Yayuhhhhh! (And yes, I said that out loud in the HomeGoods aisle, of course).



 Now this beautiful gray hard covered book sits in a pile with some of my other favorites, including my Nate Berkus design book, my autographed copy of Design *Sponge At Home, the Audrey Hepburn book my little sister gave me for Christmas and the Picasso book David and I picked up when we visited the exhibit in Seattle two Thanksgivings ago. And you all know that this little vignette is one of my favorites in my house, complete with my Craigslist nesting tables and my Nana's refurbished milk glass lamp!

So tell me, what amazing finds did you come across this week? Any good book deals?
Pin It!

  2. No amazing book finds here...but I so sympathize with you about your Art History Book. Though I didn't sell it, mine is at my mom's (in Canada) and it of course weighs about 30 lbs!!! There's no way I'd ever be able to bring it back to my house on a flight (with 3 kids and of their stuff in tow!)...so I just gaze at it lovingly (much more lovingly than I did way back when!). Cute styling by the way...love the lamp!

  3. I found two cool old books at my Goodwill, MacBeth and Jane Eyre. Then a few awesome accessories for my bedroom makeover at TJMaxx. And, an awesome duvet for $20! Love your books.

  9. I love my Nate Berkus book! Seriously, coolest cover ever. I kept the jacket on it for the first 3 years that I had it. On a whim, I took it off and I was amazed to find how awesome it is!

    I love coffee table books. I need to find some others.

  13. I saved my art history book! It was one of my favorite classes. I took it in Paris. We read a chapter a week and then would visit a museum that had art from that period. Glad you found another!
