HomeGoods Happy – Everyone Needs One of These

A couple of weeks ago, I opened a happy letter from my mailbox:  HomeGoods sent me a gift certificate for “Happiness Happens Day.” Well, that’s one holiday I’ve never heard of – how about you?  Founded in 1999 under the name of “Admit You’re Happy Day” by the Secret Society of Happy People (?), “Happiness Happens Day” aims to spread the joy of being happy, and to persuade people to look on the brighter side of life.  Well, who am I to argue that?

I’m not complaining!  It didn’t take me long to use my gift certificate for something that makes me HomeGoods happy:  a white ceramic garden seat.  I have been looking for the perfect garden seat (or stool) for some time.  I wanted something sturdy and white for holding a book and a cup of joe next to this chair in my living room.

do you call this a garden seat or a garden stool? 


I wanted one that looked more original than the ones I have seen all over, and I stumbled upon JUST THE THING at my local HomeGoods last week.  Yahoo!

The ribbon-y curves of this garden seat definitely made me HomeGoods Happy!  Everyone could use a garden seat somewhere in their home, don’t you think?  Thanks, HomeGoods – you totally made my day!

I’m headed out to Bella Rustica Vintage Marketplace today in Lebanon, TN – look for me if you are going to be there.  I’m sure I’ll find lots of treasures there, too!

    Nice pillow! I have a pair of those! I would be Happier if Home Goods sent me a certificate, but I’m happy it’s Friday, none the less! 🙂 Have fun at Bella Rustica. I hope to make it there tomorrow.

    I love the look of your garden seat! It looks great next to your yellow chair. My hubby and I have a breakfast nook where a nice chair, and a garden seat like that would look great. I will have to look into getting one!

    What I love about this is the book on your garden stool- one of my very favorites!! I live in Lebanon- maybe I’ll see ya at Bella Rustica. 🙂

    We just had a Homegoods open up in my city. I’ve never been to one before. Guess I’ll have to check it out because that garden seat is very cute!

    I LOVE your new garden stool! I have also been looking for one, but they ALL look alike except this one!

    Yes! I agree that everyone can probably find a use for a garden stool. I bought a blue one at Homegoods too but keep checking back for other colors/styles because I am thinking of transitioning that one outside with my outdoor furniture and using a different color garden stool in my living room. Love that I can easily move them around to suit my moods or needs.

    The garden stool is great. Love the curves! I live at Home Goods; it is the BEST store and it’s hard to leave without buying something. Throw pillows are my weakness, but seeing this post I may have to spend some time looking for garden seats now…

      Would you believe it? I was in there today shopping with a client, and I found one that was EVEN CUTER!
