Look What I Got

When I got home from work yesterday I was so excited to see a package in the mail! Look at what Scrapper Mom sent me:
She hosted a giveaway about a week ago for this towel and I won! She had it monogrammed in our initials. It is so cute! I love the font.
It goes so perfect in our guest bathroom. I love it with the black and white shower curtain and against the green walls. It couldn't be more perfect. I showed it to Cody and he said, "Someone you don't even know sent you that?" Yes! That is what I love about blogging. It is so fun to meet new people and share all of our ideas. Thank you Scrapper Mom!!! Check out her blog too, it is really cute and she is very talented. The best part is she is from Arkansas too!
Ok, so you know I sold my TV and Cabinet. The reason we sold it is because Cody has wanted a bigger TV for a while now. The other cabinet was maxed out at a 36" and he wanted a 46". So he found this cabinet. The doors slide up to reveal the TV. It is a lot bigger than our other one so I don't have anything to fill it up yet but that is the fun part! I'll be going to Oops and Hobby Lobby this weekend.
Check out his HUGE TV!!
Obviously that is not it. This is from our guest room. It won't be in until August 14th. Did you know that on Samsclub.com you can bid on overstocks like Ebay? We saved over $600. You just have to wait a couple of weeks to get it. I think it is worth it!


I'll show better pictures when it is all said and done.

I love the entertainment center ! How cool to win that beautiful towel.

Bella said...

That's a beautiful cabinet! Our current one will only hold a 32 inch, so I have a feeling it will be going sometime soon, too...

Congratulations your very nice win, it matches perfectly!

Bella :)

What a nice piece of furniture. I have never seen a tv cabinet like that. Love the idea of the door just sliding up. I'm sure you will have no trouble decorating it with all of your talent. Enjoy :o) P.S. Love the towel!

Thanks for the tip. Your new cabinet is beautiful. So glad you sold the other one.

The towel is too cute.

That entertainment center is gorgeous! I'm glad you're still going with a piece of furniture for your TV - it seems armoires are getting the boot from all the flat screen TVs. This one is so beautiful!

Oh, and I LOVE that towel. How sweet!

Christy said...

The towel does look very pretty hanging in your bathroom. I only wish Sarah and I could have made the trip down. I'm pretty sure we wanted to go to Oops more than wanting the cabinet!
Hope you find just the right things for your cabinet. I can't wait to see how you put it all together.

You lucky duck! Works perfectly in that bathroom too. I love your new armoire. Can't wait to see it decked out in vignettees. cherry

Sarah said...

Your towel looks perfect in your bathroom. I do like the black against the green. The cabinet is great too!

Annie said...

I love the towel! It looks great with the shower curtain. And the entertainment center is great. Where did you find it? When we bought our flat screen, we looked everywhere and couldn't find one to hold it. So, I had to settle with a wall mount with cords hidden in the wall.:(

I'll have to show hubs the 46 incher when you post it...He'll be jealous...He only has a 37!

The Berry's Patch said...

Oh, I just love that TV cabinet! Where was that TV cabinet when I was looking for one. It's beautiful!

Susie Harris said...

My husband just said that we need a new tv... guess it's that time of year. He said he needs one before the first razorback football game.... yes, He is from Ark. too. Enjoy finding plenty goodies to fill her up! Your tassel is on her way too! Thanks again! Susie h~

Joanne Kennedy said...

Nancy Hood said...

oohh girl, I love the way the doors slide UP! so unique!!

Scrapper Mom said...

Hey Shannon!!!
I'm so glad you liked the towel. It looks great in your bathroom. My walls are that same sage green color, and I never thought about doing black with that green. neat.

And.. I just want to say thank you so much for linking back to me. I appreciate it. You know I've only been blogging a couple of months now so it's nice to finally begin to be "recognized", ya know?

That's funny about the comment your husband made. My hubby made some kind of sarcastic comment...sort of like...are you paying people to play with you or what??? Men. ha.

Amy (Metz) Walker said...

LOVE the new cabinet!

The Berry's Patch said...

Hey Shannon,

Yes, that's my house. Although I could have posted a mansion and say it was mine. But that would be no fun.

Brandee :-)

Gretchen said...

Shannon, I love your new cabinet and Cody is going to enjoy his new big TV.

That towel with the monogram is perfect in your bathroom. I'm hooked on mongramming everything now.

Christy said...

Shannon,
I found the spoon at Pier 1 for $18. i think it would be fun to hang it sideways above a door too!

Christy said...

So, did you buy one? If not, what did you get?

Susie Harris said...

So glad that got you tassel and love it. That makes me so happy! I hope you enjoy it! Susie h~

Jessica said...
