Barnyard with the Bling Bling...

I've always loved Harry Allen's piggy bank. The gold shade is totally glam, and its creepy anatomical correctness imbues it with humor.

But it's been difficult to justify spending $200 on something, however special, that represents *saving* money. Right?

I mean, I love expensive things. I love to ooh and ahh over them, and imagine them in my home. I even love to post about them. But when it comes down to it, I'm just out of college and most pricey objects are way out of reach for me.

Sometimes you have to compromise.

Meet my new friend:

He's not a piggy bank - he's way smaller in fact, and is meant to hold cream. It's the disco diva version of those iconic white creamers. And I won him on Ebay for just a fraction of that Areaware bank.

Sorry about the low volume of posting, guys. As last Friday's post probably suggested, I'm super-focused on getting my apartment up to speed. I've made a lot of progress, but I still have a ways to go. I've even decided to do Apartment Therapy's Fall Cure! As soon as I get my before photos up on Flickr I'll post a link up here and let you all know.

I'm so glad you didn't think I was crazy for remembering your bathroom color scheme haha. Cool you went and bought the Anthropologie bathmat, and I think your new more colorful idea is great.

How fun to do the fall cure. I'm becoming swamped with school stuff and sad I don't have more time for that kind of thing anymore :(

Thanks Laura! I'm pretty sad about not being in school (at least for one year), so I suppose it's a trade-off! Your apartment is looking great as it is, from the photos you've posted on your blog.
