New Throw, Restyled Mantel, and Ladies Home Journal

Hello! Happy Monday! Remember when I got my new chair for the living room and I said I wanted to find a throw to go over it? 

Well, I found one! (I know this isn't the best pic...sorry about that) I picked this one up at Target. It looks kind of brown in these pics, but it's a nice grey color. 

Here's a close up of it...

I just ordered a grey pouf for in here too. I found it on the Walmart website, but they've been out of stock for over a month. I kept checking it every day, and finally they had it in stock again. It should be here Thursday. I'll share a pic when it arrives. 

I restyled my mantel too. I took the candle sticks from the end table and added them up here. I also added a couple of my mom's china plates. She gave me all her wedding china recently and I wanted to display some of it.

Here's a close up of the candle sticks. Holly kept jumping on the end table and these would wobble around, and I didn't want them to get broken. I thought they'd be safer on the mantel. 

Here's a closer look at the china. It's called "Wyndcrest" by Lenox.

This Chinatown entrance pic used to be on the mantel. I just swapped the candle sticks for this pic. 

This is off the subject, but my hubby was recently in Minnesota on business and he stopped by the Peeps Store in the Mall of America. He picked up these Peeps for me...

Party Cake and Bubble Gum flavors! The bubble gum was my favorite!

Oh, one more any of you subscribe to Ladies Home Journal magazine? Well, you probably know they are no longer publishing their monthly magazine. I think the July issue was the last one to go out to subscribers. I had already paid for my subscription through June of 2015, so I had almost a year left. I just assumed they would let me choose from any of the other magazines Meredith publishes to finish out my remaining (already paid for) issues. 

Wrong. They chose for me. I recently received a "Parents" magazine with a letter from LHJ saying they hoped I would enjoy it as a replacement for LHJ. 

What?!?! Y' boys are in high school and college. I stopped subscribing to Parenting magazines years ago. But, here's the good news...I emailed them and told them my dilemma. They emailed me back and said I could choose another magazine if I wanted. They included the list in the email. It wasn't a huge list, and several wouldn't appeal to me at all, but I did end up choosing "Midwest Living." I've heard good things about it, so I hope I enjoy it. They promptly switched out my Parents subscription for Midwest Living. Which is weird because I live in Texas. :) 

So, if you're a current LHJ subscriber and aren't happy with your replacement magazine, it doesn't hurt to email them and ask. :) They were very willing to help.
