Vinylmation is Disney's new collectible series. The hubby and I have been bit by the bug since last year and we started our collection for my birthday. (In case you were wondering, my birthday; which is a National Holiday in our house and family; is August 15th!)

Anyway, when we were just down in Disney to celebrate my sisters birthday, we got a little Vinylmation-crazy. We doubled our collection during our four day Disney vacation; going from 13 to 25! hehe.

The pieces we purchased in the parks were all designed by Disney imagineers or designers...but, check out this site of an artist who designed his own!

So here, check out our new favorite collection!

Fun Find

First, let me apologize for skipping Bargain Shopping yesterday. (I know how sad that must have made you...) You wouldn't believe though how busy life can get some times! (Well, actually, I'm sure you can- however; no excuse!)

To make up for my lack of blogging yesterday, I've decided to start ANOTHER weekly blog topic, Fun Finds! (I figure, since my life was so hectic that I couldn't do one post...I'd add another- yes, makes perfect sense!)

Can I get a "woot" from the crowd? Thank you!

Okay, so I was just poking around ZGalleries website and found these super hilarious Food Face Plates. Who knew playing with your food could look so cute?!

Tray day!

Have noticed that everywhere you look people are using trays?! (You haven't noticed? Well then you just aren't looking close enough; here. Lemme help you out...) We will start our tray-tour with some reasonably priced pieces...all the way up to less, er, reasonably (?) priced pieces (you know what I'm trying to say, those supa dupa pricey pieces...)

Lets start with a fun one from (Crate and Barrels less expensive little brother store...)
- How cute is their scroll red tray? (Also comes in white; oooh! Yes please!)

Over at they've got the CUTEST white peacock tray! How great would this look on a black coffee table? Or leaned on your mantel against the wall? Oooh, the possibilities!

Check out Macy's Nambe Handled Tray. As luck would have it, I cannot copy the picture, but trust me. Take a few seconds to click on the link and you'll be in love. Its sleek. Its modern. Its perfect. Ahh, a work of art all by itself!

And, since we are talking about trays today, why not point out a super cute (and functional!) ice cube tray from

Happy tray day!

Bargain shopping

So I'm wandering around some websites to find some great buys for my bargain shopping today. If you read my past b.s. post (HAHA! I didn't even realize the abbreviation was b.s.! hehe; okay, moving on!)

There was a comment (from my oldest friend) that even though the price on the lamp was a "bargain" would be hard to convince her hubby to spend $299 on a lamp. I totally agree.

Which is why today's bargain shopping post is an actual bargain that people (like, everyone I know) can actually afford!

Drum roll please...

I found these under the sea pillows from and thought, "Gosh, $19.99 a pillow, that's a great price for such cute pillows!" and then I started poking around other sites to see how expensive they were. I hit a wall. I couldn't find another pillow even similar. Untiiiiiiil I got to Pottery Barn's site.

SIMILAR pillows from POTTERY BARN for only, (hold your breath!) $11.99! WHA?!

Now that's a bargain!

Col, show the hubs and let me know what he thinks about this weeks find!!

Did you see "Up"?

Thanks to the hubs for finding this blog which featured this gorgeous wedding!

Enjoy browsing; I liked the invitation best and thought the little "balloons" on their cake were perfect bite-sized pieces of candy-goodness!

How beautiful was the bride?!

Bargain shopping

Welcome to the very first post of Bargain Shopping on Erinteriors! (wahoo!!)

This morning the light bulb went off.

You know when you read Vogue or Cosmo and they have one page that shows that celebrities wear (and the prices they paid) and then a more reasonably priced alternative for the layman?

I figured I would start Bargain Shopping Wednesdays after looking for a floor lamp and coming across identical lamps, with a huge price tag difference! My philosophy, why pay more?

(insert drum roll please)

First lamp is from Its their retro photographers lamp; and its funky, vintage-looking and perfect if you have $599 to drop on a lamp. But, since its Bargain Shopping Wednesday, check out's studio tripod floor lamp for only $299!!

If you were putting this lamp in your family room, imagine what else you could buy with $300!!

Christmas in July!

I received an invite from the Design Centre to attend their Christmas in July presentation. And so, I strapped on my jingle bells, turned up 'Silent Night' on the ipod and drove into a winter wonderland on Friday.

It was fantastic!

I got lots of ideas I can't wait to share with you on the blog (when I do them, of course!). Because I got so many awesome ideas, I had to have a little talk with the hubs about decorating this year. It went something like this:

me: Honey, I don't want to use any of our family ornaments this year
him: Really?
me: Yes.
him: Ok.

That's what I love about him; very easy going...its good to be that way when your married to a (self-diagnosed) control-freak. Ahhh yes, to give you an idea of my Christmas plans...think Wednesday Addams.

So I found this chair at Pier 1 and I start drooling. Then I realize something; I have no place in our house to put this chair. And then, it hits me. Like a ton of bricks.

We should move.

Then I realize, that's a little extreme for one chair. So I'll buy two.

This is when I realize I should stop reading the Shopaholic series because I'm taking after the main character a little too much...

All of this happens within five seconds in my brain.

I walk away from the chair, out of the store, got into my car and drove home. When I walked into the house, it hits me. I LOVE our home. I will never move just for a super sweet chair. (But for two super sweet chairs...)
