5 on Friday

I had so much fun last week doing 5 on Friday I thought I should do it again!

You can link up at a. liz adventures, carolina charm, hello! happiness or the good life blog.

This weeks edition is all about the home. 

When I first moved out on my own with a 5 year old little boy, my friends mom gave me all the furniture she no longer had a use for. There were couches, coffee tables, dressers, and many kitchen items. 

I was so grateful for her generosity. She really helped make my house a home. 

Now 6 years later I still have the same items. 

My husband and I have been talking for quite awhile about getting new furniture that is more OUR style. 

I want to replace the kitchen items with items that are better quality.

So these are a few items that we would LOVE in our home. 


Ikea has some great items. We love these pieces because they are in our price range, the lines are clean, and gray goes with every color. {Yes, I love all colors.} The couch is $499 and the rug is $199. We haven't decided if we will get coffee tables since Maysie broke the glass and fell through the last one.


I love this welcome mat. Maybe it is because I am British. Maybe because I love all things "keep calm". Maybe because it is $9.99 at Dayspring.


Don't you just love this cookie jar. Now that I have my new KitchenAid Artisan Mixer, I make cookies all the time. I typically just put them on a plate and cover them in plastic wrap. {Well that is if we don't eat them all first} This owl would be perfect to put cookies in. Target is selling it for $19.99. 

Although, I do love this owl from Anthropologie.

But the $68 price tag isn't my favorite.


I love these glass canisters from Anthropologie. I am trying to stay away from plastic {you know ... trying to be all green and crunchy} and these are great! They are 16 oz and $10 each from Anthropologie.


Dayspring has a new line for Easter. Their Daily Grace collection is beautiful and whimsical! This platter sells for $37. It would be perfect hanging on a wall or for serving fantastic meals to my family. 

Well that is my 5 on Friday. What pieces would you love to have in your home?
