HomeGoods Winner and My Rug Choice

Guys!!  I am sorry I have been a little MIA this last week,  you will totally understand why shortly.  How is that for cryptic?

I wanted to pop in and share with you my rug choice and the giveaway winner!

Homegoods-Collage6

I would say that the votes for the rugs were pretty evenly split so a third of you know me SOOOOO well.  As for the other 2/3…so disappointing.  Just kidding,   I would have taken any of the rugs so you know me pretty dang well too!

Aztec Chevron Rug

AZTEC CHEVRON FOR LIFE!

So lets chat about this awesome rug for a minute so you can understand why I bought it.

Go with me on this one.

I walk into HomeGoods and see it on the far wall.   And I was like  “OH FETCHIN CRAPBALLS CRAP.  Do I run? Do I remain composed?  Do I pray?” So I did my best to do all 3, but you know what it like when you see something awesome and *possibly* pray that everyone around it goes temporarily blind to up your chances of scoring the sweet find.

Don’t tell me you have never prayed for temporary blindness.  Cause you and I both know that is a lie.

Retro Chevron

1.  Its REEEEEDICULOUSLY beautiful.  I don’t have any black in my house at all (because I usually prefer dark gray) but I love the high contrast black and white.

2.  There are a few elements in the room that are major color expenses (meaning they are mucho colorful) and I needed something that was colorless.

3. HELLO ITS AZTEC CHEVRON!  How perfect is that for my Santa Fe Brothel theme?!?  FREAKIN PERFECT that’s how.

4.  It was $99…and its reversible.  So basically it was $50.00.  Which is exactly how I explained it to my hubs.

Now for the winner of the $250 HomeGoods Gift Card.

Can you guys believe that there were over 10,600 entries?  That is amazing!!!  I love that you guys love HomeGoods as much as I do,  hopefully I can do another fun giveaway soon!!

Congrats to Trish!  (If your name is Trish check your email!  You have 48 hours to respond from the time the email was sent or another winner will be drawn.)

Love  Your  Guts,  Mandi

    K

  2. stunning!

  3. I want that rug! If it turns up missing, you’ll have to make a drive to Idaho to get it back!

  4. Amazing. $100? Lucky you! It really is perfect!

  5. Yay! That means the ikat is still there for me, right? ;)
    Your rug is beautiful and perfect for your Santa Fe brothel theme.
    Congrats on finding such a great deal!

  6. Did you see on the Nate show recently where he did a segment at the end of the hour and decorated a room in black and orange? Great purchase! I love TJ Maxx!

  7. I guess I don’t know you at all….I went with the blue. Oh well. The black looks super cool, too. :)

  8. I don’t know you very well at all, but I’m new here so I consider myself excused! :D Great choice and I’m excited to see how your room shapes up!

  9. I was right! Shame about not winning the giveaway though, because yesterday I went to Homegoods and spotted the perfect rug. The first thing I thought was “Dammit! Now I have to buy or regret it forever.” It was on clearance for $249 (msrp $800!) so winning the giveaway would have made the hubs not grimace every time he sees it :)

    It’s freaking perfect though, and I totally now what you mean about praying for temporary blindness.

  10. That orange sofa is so awesome. I love that pop of color mixed with the black and white.

  11. Ha! I knew I was right!! Between the Sanata Fe Brothel theme and the couch how could you have picked anything else?

    It’s funny -I was thinking of this while trying to sleep the other night, and how the Aztec Chevron really would have been a more practical selection versus the Inky Ikat I originally guessed. You mentioned having ordered custom stencils for your wall. The bold, yet simple pattern and color scheme of the black-and-white chevron rug could coordinate better and provide more room for creativity when it comes to wall and accent choices in your room. Great choice! Looking forward to seeing how it all comes together!

  13. I love this rug!

  14. Oh Trish…please do not respond to your email! ;)

  15. It’s creepy, but I knew, like 100%, that you got the aztec chevron rug. It’s looking great in your living room! Can’t wait to see what else is going on in that room!

    Praying that Trish doesn’t check her email for several days! ;)

  16. Homegoods pinned your picture of the couch and rug! how cool is that,huh? looks awesome for sure

  20. Love it Mandi…I will have to remember that one $99 becomes $50 lol love it.

  21. Um……my name could be Trish……… LOL

  22. Oh my – I’m praying right now that no one reads this post (but guess I’m too late) – because I’m in my car faster than I can type this, to rush to a Homegoods store – $99!!>??. Wowza!

  23. So I was watching TV today and a new show about “crafting” with Tori Spelling as the hostess (see how I was barely paying attention and had screaming noisy kids in the back ground) so I didn’t catch the title…but all of a sudden I thought I spied a cute gal running around like crazy making something…and she looked LIKE YOU??!!!I think there was a snipet of an interview with you as a contestant??!! If so those others had better just give up because I’m sure you won! Soooooo was I seeing things??!! If so you should totally be on it!! And yes the couch and rug ROCK!

  24. That rug is beautiful, but I have to say…looking at it hurts my eyes! P.S. I’ve had dreams about your couch. Too bad we just spent like $2500 on a sectional. </3

  25. I just saw that you are going to be on the new TLC show hosted by Tori Spelling. How exciting is that! Can’t wait to watch.

  26. I literally laughed out loud at your $50 rationale.

    So hilarious.

    Thanks for being funny. This world needs more funny.

  27. My name is TRISH!! And I emailed you right away thinking it must be another TRISH because I didn’t get an email and guess what…SPAMMED! I just found the email!! Woot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    SO pumped!! Thank you Mandi (Thanks a gajillion Home Goods!)

  28. Your photos are just amazing! I am so in love with them!

  29. Totally diggin’ the rug with your couch! awesomeness!

  30. Darn it, I didn’t win. :( I did however guess that right rug so that’s exciting. I love the combo together. Great choice!
