In other news, Gregg's grandmother gave me a gift card to Home Goods for Christmas (you can see why I adore this woman).
I'm the world's worst gift card spender. If it was my own money, who cares? But I feel like I have to spend gift card money on the.perfect.item. so I debate and debate until I usually put down the shirt/candle/decorative wall art/pair of socks or whatever it is I'm holding and walk out with nothing. I know some people think they are impersonal or whatever but, in my opinion, gift cards can be really awesome gifts! Anyone who knows me knows I loooooove Home Goods (let's just call it HG because we're tight like that. Huh?), so it was incredibly generous for Grandmother (or Delphia or Mumer for you other ca-razy cousins) to get me such a wonderful gift.
BUT.... I can't just spend the "free money" on anything! That would be, like, disrespectful to GM (let's just call her GM because we're tight like that. Um, what?) or something! Am I right or am I crazy?
Don't answer that. Actually, I'll allow the sister to answer that. Mostly because I know she will agree with me, but whatevs.
There was a point to this post. I just know it.
Oh yes! I picked up two beauts with my gift card. I walked out of there spending less than 20 bucks, not even the whole gift amount, but I was happy with my purchases. I just need a little help. I love them, but I'm not entirely sure what to do with them. This is where you, my faithful 28 followers, come in.... I need some ideas!
The first item is this adorable pear....
I had seen it at HG multiple times. I had picked it up. I put it back down. I walked away from it. Then I walked back to it. You know, just to check on it. It was still there......... but it was still $13. Cute, but the Mr. would
And it was. And it was only FIVE dollars! How could I not? I couldn't not. Right? Right.
Right now I have it stuck under a DIY cloche I made a couple of months ago (yes, the same one that still needs to be spraypainted). The cloche, at the moment, is sitting on my dining room hutch... but I'm not totally lovin' it. Any ideas?
I also found this amazing bubble glass hurricane thing. It immediately drew my attention
So let's hear some ideas, folks!
