$500 & Buffalo Roam

Last (but definitely) not least in this guest blog series is Amy from Buffalo Roam.

Amy recently moved into her newly built home.  I like Amy's unique (good unique...just to clarify)  decorating style and sense of humor...which you'll see below.  Amy's decorating style is different than mine but I really like her bathroom and kitchen..which you'll see below.


Hi there! I'm Amy, from Buffalo Roam and I'm delighted to be at Michelle's today. Decor and the Dog was one of the first blogs I really got hooked on. Michelle sucked me right in with her wit and fantastic projects. But then you already know that, because here you are!
Michelle is going to be taking a little breather and while she's gone, she asked me what I would do if she were to give me $500. She quickly clarified that this is a hypothetical $500, which made me sad. Guest bloggers don't make that kind of dough? Lame.
Even lamer was my first thought: "I would buy a maid. And a burrito."
I don't know where the burrito thing came from, but my husband and I built a new home this year and I'm still coughing up construction dust. Hence the maid. Also hence a very uninteresting guest post.
So I'm going with the second thing that came to mind: Stuff with which to fill up our new crib.
This is our living room.
I'm finding that it takes a long time to settle in and make a brand new place feel like home. I think in this room, what I'm most lacking is a rug.
Something warm like this:
And because I can't help myself and have to keep things a little country and rustic, I would overlay the rug with a hide.
I've probably already reached my $500 budget with those two things, but in my world they are on clearance and left just enough to add some sorely needed bar stools to our kitchen island.
Ahem.. The other side of the kitchen island. Of which I've never taken a picture, evidently.
Maybe these?
Kidding! I have no intentions of galloping into the sunset just to eat a corn dog in my own kitchen.
What I'd really like is something like this:
Simple, clean, have the word saddle in their title, yet lack stirrups. Perfect. And the fact that they're available at Target for $30 makes me and Michelle happy, once I tell her I expect $500 for writing such a stellar and intriguing post.
Kidding, Michelle! Or am I....
Thank you for having me! It's been fun spending other people's imaginary money.
